My husband I have gone to Mannino's on several occasions. They always have a magnificent daily special along with their well rounded menu selections. The atmosphere is casual; however, you often see people dressy as well. The wait staff has been friendly and well informed on the menu and specials.

I found the place very casual, we shared the fried mozzarella and zucchini as a starter which was so so, then we had the spaghetti with meatballs and the penne marinara, both were well prepared, although the food was pretty good, the service was very slow

This place is a true gem, nestled off Princess Anne Road in a tiny shopping center. For start to finish my wife and I found ourselves re-living the memories of dining in Little Italy in New York or St. John's in the V.I. -- From start to finish, beginning with the award winning 'She-Crab soup' our total dining experience was...

I've had the opportunity to sample some of Mannino's delicious mozzarella cheese at a local farmer's market, but this was my first time visiting their restaurant. And,it will certainly not be my last visit! What a wonderful meal! Service by Shawn was exceptional -- friendly, professional and knowledgable. Everything about the food, from the caprese salad to the veal saltimbocca... More

We heard a few of our friends talking about how wonderful the food was and had to go and try it. Diane is amazing and the food was perfect. The house made Mozzarella and sauce were fantastic. The last time we had Italian food this good we were in Italy,

My husband and I spent our 24th anniversary in Virginia Beach and wanted a special occasion restaurant. Everything we ate here was wonderful from the bread to the gelato. I had the perfect chicken marsala with the house vegetable of the night glazed carrots. I can still remember the wonderful carrots. If all vegetables tasted that good children would never... More

We enjoyed a delicious Italian dinner. Started with the in house made Mozzarella Salad and then some wonderful pasta. The highlight of the evening was the friendly, attentive service of Linda!

My husband and I decided to eat at Mannino's on our date night since we had heard so many excellent reviews about their food. We were not disappointed! The food was delicious and we received excellent service from Diane, our server. You have to try their she crab soup! Best in the area!

After 5 days of nothing but seafood, we were looking for something else, so decided on Italian, and selected Mannino's because of the high rating. We were not that hungry, and admittedly didn't challenge the menu too hard, but we found the food nothing beyond ok. We skipped appetizers, and I ordered spaghetti with meat balls and my wife ordered... More
