Started with a caprese salad which was on the small side but very fresh. Balsamic reduction, excellent. The crab soup was loaded with crab. The base was creamy and flavorful, but the soup was not particularly hot. I had chicken piccata. The dish was a bit overly acidic. The chicken i
was tender and the accompanying penne pasta with red sauce was excellent. Bread was good and crusty with olive oil and balsamic. They have a lot of servers in here and extra help. This was much appreciated. My dining companion had the chicken Pomodoro. Very tasty indeed!

Recently had dinner at Mannino's at the recommendation of our son and daughter in law who had just moved to Virginia Beach. While there are lot's of restaurants that promote themselves as "Italian", there are very few that truly are. Maninno's however is the real deal. Great service, very personable and willing to do whatever to make your dining experience memorable Diane was our waitress and you could not ask for a more helpful or attentive waitress. From the entrees to dessert, everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed their dinners. A truly enjoyable evening. We will definitely be back on our next trip to Virginia Beach.

I was in Virginia Beach attending a conference at a large hotel with all food included. I quickly tired of that, mostly buffet stuff, nothing wrong with it, it just got boring. I checked the reviews of restaurants in the area on Tripadvisor and tried this gem of a bistro. I ate there several times during the week and it was perfect every time. Our waitress, Stephanie, was exceptional, from helping us pick a wine to describing the different menu options. The caesar salad was yummy with not too much dressing. I tried several of the chicken dishes and they were perfectly matched with seasonings and vegetables. My companion chose vegetarian options and they were also excellent and included eggplant parmesan and a portobello mushroom dish. If this restaurant was close by, it would be my "go-to". As it is, I'll have to be satisfied with the memories.
