My parents and I ate at this Mannino's location at Pleasure House for a double birthday celebration dinner. I've always enjoyed it there but it was my parents first time there. They loved the food, the atmosphere and the service. Erica was our server and was extremely curtious and attentive. She and this Mannino's location are highly recommended.

Our evening spent at Mannino's was wonderful. Our server Erica was thoughtful and knowledgable as well as very pleasant. The food was absolutely perfect and plentiful. We were assisted by 2 of the most delightful young ladies, Devon and Hayley and they were so contentious. Our water glasses were always full and our table was cleared in a very timely manner. We actually made reservations for another visit before we left!

My husband and I went in on a week night last week. We were greeted by a very polite hostess, she sat us right away. Alexander was our server, he is very knowledgable about the menu and wine list. He walked us through the specials and helped us decide what to order. He is really an excellent server! This was our first visit but it will not be our last! The food was so yummy! Everything from the appetizer to the dessert! Everything about our first visit was just fantastic!

I have been to a lot of restaurants in my lifetime! This one has got to be the best one I've ever been to! The staff is amazing! I have NEVER seen such a "well oiled machine"! They were packed when we came in on Saturday night with no reservation. Haily found us a table in no time at all! Alexander took excellent care of us! All his recommendations were right on! The food was so fresh and hot. Wow, Kuddos to the manager of this place, she/he really knows what real customer service is all about! We will definitely be back!

I was originally going to just make a to go order for my wife and I, but the bartender( Sonja ) was so welcoming and helpful that I couldn't help but stay and eat my meal there. While I was waiting for my food the young lady behind the hostess stand ( Hailey ) kept me entertained. She was very enthusiastic and always had a smile on her face. I ordered my appetizer which was the fried calamari which was out of this world, then to my main course of the delicious Tortellini Mannino. This dish was cooked to perfection! Lastly for my desert I ordered the cheesecake, original but still out of this world. If you are looking for an all around great Italian restaurant, whether it's to being the family to or just to come solo I strongly suggest this restaurant! I felt very satisfied and at home with the great food and even better people! I will be returning soon!
