Description: The experienced Culinary team of Chefs John R. Mannino & John M. Mannino (Father & Son Respectively) have partnered with Sommelier Daris Gavin to open New "Olde World Style" Italian Bistros. The goal was to give patrons Great Italian food at a reasonable price point with wine choices to match. We are sure that the Mannino’s Italian Bistro Family will work with great passion & attention to detail to try and ensure that our guest develop a sense of home and comfort while enjoying their dining experience. John R. spent time at many restaurants both locally (Nicholas’ at the Omni, La Bella Italia, Café Society {Executive Chef}, Bodegas & 456 Fish) and nationally (Lacey’s Restaurant/ Manhattan & East of Athens/ Long Island). John M Mannino is an Honors Graduate of Culinary Institute of America. He was the Executive Chef of Bodega & 4 5 6 Fish prior to opening Mannino's. John M also won the Inaugural 2012 Taste of Hamptonroads Iron Chef competition.

We always have great food and above average service, but during our last visit, Jeannine took especially good care of us. Can't wait to return!

THE BEST " ITALIAN FOOD IN TOWN," The wait staff is courteous and accomadating. The staff and the manager is like the very formal to the relaxed amosphere. The manager is the is courteous the old school salutations, music and fine service . The treat their customers as if the were King & Queen of Italy.They greet you with a smile and shake your hand they monitor your likes and dislikes; they treat you as you are a member of the family. The food has no comparison to other restaurants in Virginia. I am from New York where you find the foods it's like home cooked meals a piece of Italy at your finger tips. Once you taste the food and experience the amosphere, you will be hooked as I .

Really loved the She Crab soup and the Chicken Giavanni! My husband thought the Chicken Parm was outstanding.
Our waitress, Maryellen, was very attentive. She made us feel very welcome.

Definitely am critical about Italian food. Mannino's passed with flying colors :) service, location, quality of food, and the concept of an Italian restaurant make it a winner..
Another added bonus is asking the rating of spice factor from 1 to 10 and it definitely can get spicy if you want it.. Yummo.. (I think even Rachael Ray would say!)
