The calamari is the best I have ever had, not to mention they give you so much you barely have room to eat your entree! The penne a la vodka is also one of the best... More

Had our first dinner at Mannino's this week. A wonderful experience. The food was absolutely delicious. Our server, Amber, was probably one of the best waitresses we have ever had anywhere. She was very helpful, polite and took time to make sure all of our needs were met. She was friendly and checked on us enough to not be troublesome.... More

The food at Mannino's is consistantly good. Never disappointed. Their veal dishes are exceptional and their specials are always unique and tasty. Their pasta dishes are what you'd expect. Classic. I have eaten here numerous times and would highly recommend. Our last time, Terri was our server and her attention to our party of 8 was exceptional. Polite, efficient and... More

The food was the best Italian food we've ever had. It was like the food was right from Italy. The chiefs were excellent. All the food was cooked perfect. The crab fish chowder was great. Our waitress Courtney was excellent. She memorized all the specials, never let us run out of water, and was the best waitress we have ever... More

My family went to Mannino's for dinner. The service was superb, the food was wonderful. The atmosphere is simple, like dining in your mother kitchen. Warm and comforting. Will definitely be back.

We have been meaning to try this place out since it has the highest rated she crab soup in the area. Picked an early time for dinner and was happy we weren't the first customers. Our server was young and friendly--but he had to read off of the blackboard to tell us the specials for the night. This was no... More
