My co-worker and I travel 3-4 times a year and whenver we come to Va beach we always visit Manninos sometimes twice in a 3-5 day span. The fried green tomatoes are incredible as is all of the offerings! We love this place!!

“Great experience!”
Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful evening of great food and wine! Our party started with the antipasto appetizer, moved to soups and salads and all were very tasty! We had an assortment of entrees and, as usual, when a great meal is served all that was heard was silence! The veal marsala was especially good!

Please be sure to enjoy an evening there!

Best Italian food we've ever had in a restaurant. Courtney was also the best waitress we've had in a long time.

Went to Mannino's for the first time and found it to be an excellent experience. My server Courtney was great. Best crab soup EVER, and enjoyed the Vitello and Portabello stack. Definitely will return.

“A Birthday Celebration to remember!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

For my 65th birthday last night my family planned a great dinner at one of our favorite restaurants close to home. This wonderful Bistro always offers up great chef selections, good wine and consistent quality and service. Our server, Roanna was attentive, helpful and even made the younger family members feel special. We all chose the house made fried mozzarella and zucchini to start and we were not disappointed. This isn't the usual frozen variety! Each of us also went with specials for our main course and mine was amazing. A fall veggie bounty in a delicate whine broth over penne...YUM! Of course we will be going back!
