I finally decided to try out this restaurant after hearing so much about the "award winning she crab soup". My husband and I both agreed that it was hands down the best we have ever had in our 15 years in the area. Our entrees were outstanding as well. He had the tortellini in a rose cream sauce with artichokes... More

We usually go to Mannino's in Kempsville a couple of times a month, and are rarely disappointed; I wanted something I hadn't tried before, and love marsala, so Diane, our wonderful waitress suggested the Pollo Portofino. It was heavenly, stuffed with spinach, cheese, and topped with marsala sauce and mushroom. I think I've found my new menu favorite, along with... More

My wife and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary this month in VA beach! We ate here and had an amazing experience. The staff was phenomenal and very welcoming. The food was delicious and to top it off "Cindy" our server was absolutely the best. You can tell when someone enjoys making people feel satisfied. We will definitely be back... More

Recently had dinner here, I had the chicken piccata - it was delicious! I had the scallops as an appetizer and they were amazing, fresh and not a bit of sand! Everyone at our table enjoyed their meal! We will return on our next trip to Virginia Beach.

We went based on reviews from here and were not disappointed. We ate at the bar and the service was excellent. Based on other reviews we tried the She-Crab soup and the Oyster appetizer. Both were amazing. The Egg Plant Parmigiana was very good and the sauce was excellent. A very nice Chianti accompanied the meal. We visited with our... More

We love Virginia Beach Restaurant Week! It gives us an opportunity to explore great new restaurants that tend to put their best foot forward in an effort to recruit new regular patrons. And you know that they're going to offer their house specialties in an effort to do just that. Mannino's Italian Bistro is a perfect example. We had never... More

People are critical to a great experience. We had a simply amazing waitress in Jennifer. Her humor, candor, care, and efficiency were spot on. She was representative of the restaurant's quality. The atmosphere was understandably relaxed - given it's a beach town - but the food - oh my the food, it was magnificent. I couldn't have had a better... More

Went with a group of six. Food was generally above average Italian fare and bread was excellent. Also you cannot miss the she crab soup!! Iced tea was nearly black so we had to cut it with water to make it drinkable. However the service was sloppy. Appetizers were delivered randomly so half our party had them well before the... More

We made a reservation online but arrived at 5pm when they opened and they weren't busy, but was filling up by the time we left! We were greeted by Diane and she was very informative about their menu and she didn't leave us once we were served our food! We ordered fried mozzerella (made in house) and zucchini and sausage,...
