We found you on Valentine's Day evening. We were going to a different restaurant and they were closed so as a last resort we found Mannino's.
All we can say is what a happy accident! Our waitress Courtney was friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. The food was delicious, we all completely cleaned our plates and somehow found room for drinks and dessert!

I had the mannicotti formaggio and it was excellent. Had the tiramisu for dessert and it was the best I can say I've ever had. Courtney provided amazing service too. 10/10

Had another amazing dinner at Mannino's Italian Bistro (Kempsville). Even though my wife and I order the same food (chicken parm/lasagna), tonight's meal was especially tasty. Since I was away overseas for a month, having my favorite Italian food was a nice welcome back home meal. Even though our Courtney was off tonight, we wanted to express how much we enjoyed the amazing service we received from Andrew! THANK YOU!

We had a wonderful joint Birthday dinner for my parents. Our waitress was Diane who was extremely friendly and helpful! We ordered the roasted garlic appetizer for the table and tried the she crab soup, both were superb. Our entrees were excellent and paired wonderfully with the Mannino's very own Chianti. We had an amazing night and our wonderful waitress made the evening even better!

Whenever I am in Va Beach I love to have dinner at Mannino's. On the menu they have calamari (fried) but I like it sauteed and so I always ask for this option and I always get it! This time our waitress Diane mentioned the fresh spinach and I said throw that in too! It was a perfect addition! The food was excellent and Diane could have not been more helpful and enjoyable! You will not be disappointed!
