Again we enjoyed our meal at Mannino's with their incredible detail to everything from the fried oyster appetizer followed by an authentic Caesar salad leading up to our entrees of Pollo Giovani and Chicken Marsala. We barely had room for dessert but managed to share the Tiramisu. We want to thank the hostess, Haley for the perfect table and our... More

Had a great meal during our first trip to Mannino's! New in the area and I love cooking and eating Italian food! This place did not disappoint. Got us seated quickly with a last minute phone call on a Friday night! Holly, our server, was courteous and knowledge! The sausage and peppers starter was delicious and I tried one of... More

We are regulars at Mannino's, mostly because my husband loves Italian and is Celiac, their GF menu always features pasta. This time we had the extra bonus of visiting on Monday Wine Night, enjoyed a great Pinot Noir for under $12 per bottle. I especially enjoy the "light side" menu, just enough to satisfy.

I have had many great meals at Mannino's before, but when they do salmon, it is always amazing! You can't beat the specials, and of course no one can beat the She Crab Soup! The staff is wonderful, they make a point to remember you and it always feels welcoming when I walk in. Anytime anyone new moves to Virginia... More

We were greeted warmly the minute we walked in the door and seated promptly. The hostess Devyn was a very pleasant young lady and actually remembered us from a previous visit. Our very attentive server Mirren explained the specials to us and and answered all of our questions expertly. Our choices for the evening included an appetizer of fried oysters... More

The family and I picked this Italian restaurant for the Egg Plant parmesan, which was quite good! My daughter Sarah is expecting anytime now an thought the eggplant might help her go into labor. The food was very good, the service was excellent and the wine choices were very good. I would go back here anytime I am in town.... More

My wife and I just returned from a trip. After landing at the Norfolk airport, we decided to look for dinner. She was in the mood for Italian, so we looked on TA and found Mannino's. It did not disappoint! To start with, the service was outstanding. From the time we walked in until the end, everyone was attentive, friendly,... More

Our dinner was excellent. The food was probably the best I've had in a while. Our server Erica was very knowledgable and attentive. The hostess greeted us at the door and asked if we had made reservations and when she recognized our names she immediately told me happy birthday, which was very sweet and showed they actually cared! Her name... More

This is a local favorite, and it's easy to see why: Large portions, a marinara sauce that Mama use to make, and seafood which rivals the best crab house in town. Very family style Italian which is indeed mouthwatering. Low key, relaxed atmosphere. You just can't go wrong. When I took the first bite of their side spaghetti with that... More
