Italian food at its best!

Good fresh Italian food and seafood. Casual atmosphere and elegant presentations. Chicken marsala was excellent. Pizza too but try an entree. Lovely salads and appetizers.

Mannino’s (Kempsville location) is always a great place for a relaxing dining experience. We have been there many times and they always have specials on the menu for every taste. They are famous for their award winning she crab soup, which I had a cup of on this visit. We shared the caprese salad, made with their homemade fresh mozzarella... More

We decided to celebrate at Manninos because of past experience with this restaurant. We started with a welcome by Diane that made us feel like frequent guests. Diane's descriptions of the menu options and specials painted a picture of the food that we could almost taste. We began with their famous and award winning she-crab soup. This could have been...

Our family LOVES Mannino's! We have eaten here numerous times, ordered from Mannino's catering menu for several parties, and have attended their cooking classes. Their she-crab soup is full of fresh crab, and their caprese salad is delicious. They make their own mozzarella! One of my favorite menu items is their Pollo Francese and it is full of flavor and...

I came in because of the United Dining association while on business travel. I will always go back when I am in town. The food here is excellent, Scott the bartender is great, provides fast service, excellent meal and wine pairings, and fun to chat with. I highly recommend the cannoli one of the best I have ever had.

This was the first time me, my husband, and parents had been to Mannino's and it was great! We had Veal Marsala, the NY Strip special, and lasagna and all of the meals were wonderful! My mother commented that it was the best NY Strip she'd ever had! Kudos to the chef and wait staff! Specifically Diane!

Seven different Italian dishes shared with family members celebrating a birthday. We started off with the best fried oysters, mussels & claims, capresse salad and zuppa. Wow! Then came the chicken piccata, meatballs, veal paramagiana, sausage, spaghetti and fettacinni, cooked to perfection just the way we liked it. Delicious!!! What else can I say - the bottle of Italian pinot... More

Start off with a cup of the she-crab soup. they've won prizes for it, and it is just packed with crabmeat. I had the linguine con vongole, which is one of my favorite dishes, and I try it at every new restaurant. Mannino's passed my test. The linguine was very good.

The food and service were excellent. I had the fettuccine alfredo with italian sausage and my wife had the eggplant parmigiano. Best food we had on the entire trip.
