Top notch food and service. We've been a long time customer and really like going in for an app and a few drinks and we can't wait until we can do it again. Since they have been doing take out and delivery only we've called in twice and the quality of the food as well as the staff has not changed a bit. Great people running a grea ... read more

This is a local “old faithful”. The food is excellent and the service is always good. I like that I don’t have to drive all the way to one of the major shopping districts to eat at a good restaurant. Perfect for special occasions, date night, or dinner with girlfriends. I love the eggplant parmesan and penne allá vodka. The pomadoro ... read more

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.

Great Place.
We were staying at The Ocean Air Resort in Va. Beach. This quaint great restaurant was right across the street. Great food, service and just what we needed on a cold winter night. Love it.
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

Rusty Bishop via - Feb 22, 2020
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!
DonaldP via - Feb 21, 2020
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. I made sure to make reservations ahead of time. We arrived right when they opened a little after 5pm. By 5:30, tables were already filling up.
