Courtney was our waitress. She was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. We will continue to dine at Mannino's. Great food and service.

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in the area. The food is exceptional. I love to get the specials because they are always unique and delicious. The wait staff is friendly and helpful. Diane has been our server the last couple of times we visited. She is wonderful. Always upbeat and informative and just a joy to talk... More

Someone from Italy once told us the best Italian restaurants in the US are in non-descript neighborhood shopping centers. We've found that to be true, but this one really stands out. The nuance in the food, and its range are both outstanding. Our server Courtney was wonderful as well. This is the kind of place where you can return again... More

It was a nice and warm inviting atmosphere. Our server, Andrew, was amazing throughout our visit. We were served fresh warm bread and had THE BEST CRAB SOUP! It is worth every penny! Our entrées were delicious; Scampi Fra Diavolo and Lasagna Bolognese. Definitely going back again and asking for Andrew!

My friend and I came to Mannino's for a much needed relaxing meal. We were sat when we arrived and were quickly greeted by Courtney, our server. Courtney was polite and charming right from the start - she offered us some great suggestions for appetizers and left us to decide on a cocktail. As we are both very indecisive people,... More

Located a little off the "beatened path" in a small shopping plaza in Va Beach's Kempsville district, off of Princess Anne Rd, Mannino's is a little gem of a restaurant, small and intimate, excellent wine choices, a standard Italian menu, with medium-priced entrees. The difference is the quality of the food, great presentations, and outstanding service! Our server (Andrew) was... More

We had the good fortune to meet friends for a lovely dinner on a recent weeknight. The staff was warm and the food fantastic. Our server "Andrew" was a super host and offered great suggestions for us to try. Nice Job
