Just everything was wonderful. The food was great. The presentation of everything from the bread to the dessert was given thought. We left feeling full and satisfied. The service was so quick and timed out that I started to suspect they had cameras in the dining area with monitors in the back. I took the last drink in my glass... More

This was our first visit to Mannino's Italian Bistro. It was recommended to us by a fellow New Yorker who moved to the area. Everything was fresh and hot. The She Crab soup was excellent and deserves the award it has been given for 6 years. The tomato and mozzarella salad was fresh with the mozzarella made fresh by the... More

We have been to Mannino's several times and this visit proved once again, a great choice! We were seated promptly and as we sat down out our table, we found an anniversary card on our table from the restaurant which was quite a surprise (a personal touch I might add). I've never been to another restaurant that does that. Diane... More

Based on the favorable comments from others my wife and I visited this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Our expectations of excellence were completely satisfied. The menu offered an extensive selection of food and beverages, and our server was very attentive. We passed on the appetizers but selected our meals without regard to cost, considering the occasion.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants around. The sauce is the perfect blend of spices. Not too heavy, just a right consistency. Casual but on the upscale side. The waitstaff were very kind and professional.

Had a wonderful dinner! Took my 86 year old mother to dinner and had an easy walk to the table and they took her walker up front. We had a very attentive waitress (Diane) and had the wine quickly- the Mannino's Chianti was lovely! We started with the She-Crab soup, one of the best soups I have ever eaten, and... More

We drove 20 minutes past a waterfront Mannino's based upon the reviews of the Kempsville location. I must say it was well worth the trip. We were greeted at the door by the smiling hostess, Jess, who escorted us immediately to our table. She made sure that we were comfortable. answered some questions that my wife had about the menu,...
