Everything is great on the menu--but average entree is $18-22. Our waitress, Courtney, paired our meals with wines that fit our tastes. Enjoyed the intimate environment. Had a girls night out here and had a great time!! Will be visiting here again soon!

My mother and I shared soup and several different appetizers. Everything was excellent. The crab soup is the best. Our server, Holly, rocked. She was very professional and engaging. The entire experience was delightful. We will definitely be back for more.

My husband and I dine at the Kempsville location almost every week. Our favorites are the award winning Crab Soup, the Insalate Della Casa and the Classic Caesar and any pasta with Pomodoro sauce. The flavor is always predictably good and the service is excellent. On a recent visit, Courtney made our meal even more special. The wine and dessert... More

Being an Italian-American from New York City I tend to be hesitant when I eat Italian food outside my home cooking and outside of my favorite Italian spots in my area. I have to say that my family was completely impressed with Mannino's. Everything we ordered was delicious and freshly made. Our server was wonderful, attentive, and friendly. When traveling... More

Our server was Courtney and she was very knowledgable and very pleasant. We started out with a very good Pinot Grigio and ordered the fried calamari for our appetizer. Another server brought... More

The soup made my day, it was pure heaven for my taste buds. The classy waiters made me feel like I was a real princess. The lasagna was of the highest quality and came with it's own doily. The bread really made the meal feel whole, I wish there was more! Mannino's was a pure delight to eat at!
