The she crab soup is the star of the show and it does not disappoint. Still the GOAT of the she crab soup. Had the jumbo shrimp rose dish and hubby had the penne with marinara added sausage. Both dishes were tasty and the service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Place looked a bit dated an at times it was hard to see the menu because the lighting is really dark. But overall really good food and the portions are big, you definitely will take some home. Their Tiramisu is really good and you can definitely tell is made there. Is a nice place to try if you are looking for good Italian food.

Excellent Italian
Our food was excellent. My family and I sat in the bar area and had dinner last week. It was some of the best Italian I have ever had. Our server, Jeremy treated us extremely well. I highly recommend this place.

Gloria B via - Mar 7, 2020
Food was very good, she crab soup may have been the best I ever had. Waitstaff were conscientious and provided good service. Ambience/physical setup is the biggest drawback, with multiple tables on a single long booth with little space in between. Other seating didn’t look much better, out in the open without much space. We are going ... read more

Overall, everything was very good. Was a little disappointed in she crab soup. Still good, but not quite as tasty and seemed thinned out. Small portion of shrimp scampi was a little too lemony. Still one of our favorite Italian eateries!

5:00 o’clock reservation dining room started out quiet. By 6 pm a few larger groups added to the din. Overall meal was awesome, happy hour wine was good too! She Crab soup was the best on the East coast!

When it comes to Italian restaurants in the area, Mannino's tops my list as one of my favorites. My most recent visit was during Restaurant Week which made it a plus.
