We stopped here when another restaurant down the road was unexpectedly closed. We were told that the kitchen was short-handed, but it did not seem like things were overly slow due to kitchen. Our server seemed to be stretched a little thin though. We got...an appetizer and a salad to share. We got the stacked veal/eggplant/mushroom entree and the veal with peppers (vitello con peperoni). All of the food was good. We also got tiramisu for dessert. The tiramisu had a good taste but the various ingredients were not evenly spread across the bar.More

This place is incredible. The food is excellent and the service is very fast and friendly. Julie and Erica are fantastic. The whole team works together to make a really great dining experience. Our first time dining there, while visiting on vacation. If I lived...here, I would have a standing reservation.More

Carly is the best. She and Manninos were recommended by friends. First, as a native New Yorker this restaurant rivals anything back home. And Carly is the best. She's personable and sweet and made the experience great. Thanks Carly!

Best meal of the week hands-down, and the customer service was truly excellent. Thanks Noah! Manninos is a wonderful, old school authentic Italian experience.

My family and I were in the mood for pasta and we were staying at Hilton Vacation Club -Ocean Beach Club on 34th Street. Mannino's Italian Bistro came up as a highly rated option when we did a search for restaurants. We were surprised to...find this recommendation just steps from our resort since we stay here each summer. We were charmed by the old school decor, the wonderful service from all of the staff and the excellent food! Our serve Robbie made excellent recommendations and treated our family of four very well. The food was delicious, the crab soup is a must! We enjoyed our appetizers and our entrees and we had a variety at the table. We will definitely return.More

Very slow service. Took forever to get food. Food was delicious, though. Parties of 6 or more auto gratuity so, I guess they don't have to work for it

1st time patrons @ Mannino's Italian Bistro, highly recommend dinners, dining experience. Appetizer gargorlaza bruschetta was the best we've ever eaten, anywhere!! Our fine waiter Dave was very professional, personable & very informative in helping us making the right selections. The lobster ravioli, unbelievably delish,...veal parm, omg...Our new must every time we"re in VA beach! Thank you for an enjoyable, delicious & memorable dinner.😀More

Our server Julie is truly an amazing person. She does her job and does it well. She made sure that we have what we wanted. I had fettuccine alfredo and had a lot leftover to take home. She even gave me extra cream and parmesan...cheese to add to it when I reheat to make it creamy again. A great tip which I have never thought of myself. Very attentive and so friendly. The food is great and portions are very generous. I wish that I had a million dollars because that's what I would have left to her for a tip. She deserves it. Everyone of the servers at Mannino's are awesome. If I could give 10 stars I would. I would definitely go back to Mannino's If we ever visit Virginia again . Thanks so much for making our dinner there an amazing experience Julie !More

Omg this place. Where do I begin? The she crab soup I'd heard was the best in town so I had to the try it. They. We're. Not. Lying. I've ventured all over the DMV and VB area in search of the best she crab...soup and let me tell you. THIS PLACE DELIVERS. On all fronts! The appetizers are amazing. The drinks are amazing. The food in its entirety is amazing. To boot, the staff is unparalleled. You get the small town, family owned feel with being overwhelmed or oversold. Lisa is the best, most attentive without being an overbearing waitress I've come across and I have worked in the industry for years. The hostess, Lisi, is also so personable and her recommendations are always on point. Moral of the story: everything and everyone is amazing and you're doing a disservice if you skip this place. 20/10 would recommend.More
