Great food and their wine list is reasonable, and great. Order an Italian wine and you can't go wrong. Saltamboca and chicken marsala were both great. The tiramisu is always first rate.

This place feels not quite new, but with a friendly staff that makes you feel welcome. The food is ok, not the most elegant or fresh new thinking type of food, more traditional dishes. They make their own mozzarella which was delicious. One other good thing is that they offer lighter (pasta) dishes which is great. We were recommended this... More

This is a review of the original Mannino's location in Virginia Beach, near Town Center. They also have an Oceanfront Va. Beach and a Portsmouth location as well. I have never had a bad meal there, and the service is excellent also. This is a family owned and operated restaurant/bistro, by an Italian family. The food is of high quality... More

I brought my wife here on Mother's Day at the spur of the moment and without reservations. They went out of their way to accommodate us, and really made it a special evening.

They grow their own herbs and make their own mozzarella which is also sold at the local farmers market. The food is fantastically fresh seasoned to perfection. Three locations to choose from though parking in Kempsville is easiest. Reservations are best but they will squeeze you in. The wine list is generous.

They have the best Italian food South of New York city. Try the Lasagna. They also do seafood dishes extremely well. My husband and I have been to Mannino's Italian Bistro several times and we share each other's meals because it's too hard to to pick just one meal each.

My family and I are long time patrons and fans of Mannino's. The food is always superb. Last night my wife and I received the best service of any of our many visits. James, our waiter, was exceptional. His enjoyable demeanor was only surpassed by delay free, perfectly timed service. Everything arrived at the right time without long delays that... More
