When we got to Mannino’s for dinner we just knew the food would be delicious and authentic. The menu is full of so many good options it was hard to choose! I went with the tortellini Mannino and was so impressed (I highly recommend this...menu item!). My husband loved the chicken parmesan. The portions were so large we had leftovers and were completely stuffed. If you go, ask for Bobby to be your waiter. He was our server and was very attentive, helpful and funny! He made sure our orders came out quickly and made great menu recommendations. He was very personable and friendly. We will totally be back again when we are in the area. If you’re in VA beach, check them out if you’re in the mood for a great Italian meal with friendly staff!More

It's a tourist trap. Restaurante is dated with midecure food quality. Looks like the ownership is riding the wave and making money while they can. Will not recommend as my first choice. Plenty of GREAT options not to far from this location!

We talked ourselves into trying this place but didn’t expect much. Very pleasantly surprised and impressed. I think we ate here every day of our 4 day trip lol. Great food, great service (Adam & another guy who’s name slips my mind but he said...his brother also works there). I told my sister this place makes Olive Garden the McDonald’s of Italian restaurants. Everything was so flavorful and fresh. The fried mozzarella and wine was all we intended to get but it impressed us so much we stayed for dinner, and kept coming back!More

We were looking for a nice Italian Restaurant and tried Mannio's for the first time. The chicken parmesan was very good. We also had chicken picante it was good not excellent. I like chicken that has a nice golden sautéed color to it it was...snow white. The appetizer was fried mozzarella and zucchini. Cheese was very tasty but it was a melted pile on our plate with zucchini sticks on top that were very large and not cook through, rather crunchy! I will try again but order very differently.More

My friend and I weren't particularly hungry since we had downed margaritas earlier at Guad's. We opted for their prize-winning She-crab soup and shared a Caesar. Bobby's timing was superb; attentive but not intrusive. He was also the bartender and made a mean Espresso martini....Highly recommend the restaurant... And ask for Bobby. ---TinaMore

Oh my gosh, the food was delicious! We ordered linguini with meatballs. The sauce was perfect and the meatballs were huge! In fact, my meal was enough for two meals! When we went to order and carry out our dinner and had 5 little dogs,...they had no problem letting us wait in the lobby and have our beer. In fact the manager came out and met our dogs! It was so conveniently located, easy walk from our hotel. I would definitely order again!More

Limited seating because of covid. Dinner only offered. I made it a point to be here immediately after the restaurant opened. I was seated right away. Courteous service. I started off with the crab soup. Delicious. Then onto the cheese ravioli entrée. Very tasty. An...enjoyable dining experience.mMore

Because of COVID19 seating in this smaller restaurant is quite limited so reservations, especially on weekends, are a must. This is a dinner only restaurant. We were promptly seated in a small corner table for two and immediately brought water, warm crusty bread, and olive...oil and vinegar for dipping. The menu, though not exceptionally large, has something Italian for everyone including vegans. The she crab soup is a MUST even at $7.99 a cup. It is by far the best I've ever eaten. The food is excellent, the service good, and the dining room is cozy and quiet with 60s-70s elevator music playing in the background. The serving sizes are large enough to bring some home and the entre prices moderate between $19 and $30. Our bill for two was $80 including the $23 for taxes and tip. Well worth every penny and we will be back!More
