Mannino's is an unpretentious bistro, tucked in a small strip mall. You'd never guess that it is home of great food and lovely service...unless you looked at its full parking lot!Everything we've ever ordered here was delicious!

My favorite local Italian restaurant! The gnocchi Margarita is outstanding! The pasta and mozzarella are made in-house.

I really enjoy this restaurant. The food and service are great. Monday is wine night, and I've managed to enjoy that several times. I tend to go early...around 5, so it has not been overly crowded. I really want to try many of the dishes, but chicken parmesan is my favorite, and they do it so well there, it is... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Mannino's. They seated us quickly at the time of our reservation. Food quality was good but some of the dishes seemed pretty expensive for what you got. Particularly the mozzeralla dish. I would go again if in the area but probably would not make a special drive across town .

This restaurant may be a little hard to find if you haven't ever been there. It's tucked away in a small "strip mall" next to a gas station. Look closely, though and you'll find a wonderful casual dining experience. Food is good and reasonably priced. Nice wine selection; and helpful staff. Weekends are usually crowed so plan to go early.

We ate at this restaurant while visiting our son who is stationed at Oceana NAS. I picked the restaurant based on the reviews here. Our waitress was the best we have had in a long time, Diane. She just knew all the right things to recommend and made us feel right at home after our long drive to the area.... More

Mannino's is exceptional in every way. The staff is engaging and friendly. The food is authentic Italian and absolutely delicious (we recently visited Italy and Mannino's is the closest we've ever come to real Italian cuisine. Our server, Diane, is terrific. She knows our tastes and our unique needs!!!
