Came out to manninos with my sister for a dinner and we sat in the bar area , I enjoyed that with the high top table , it was Valentine's Day and becoming quit busy but are little spot was cozy had great conversation it wasn't to loud and the service was excellent, carol had the prime rib which was cut with mashed potato and broccoli, it was very tender and the mashed potato was creamy delicious, I had to try a bite it looked so good , my choice was the shrimp pasta and I added spinach which was delicious, hot and fresh .. we will definitely be back again soon

Wonderful New Year's Eve dinner with friends. The service was excellent and the servers worked as a team so that water and wine was refilled promptly. The food was fabulous and plentiful as usual.
We had a great time!

We went on Christmas Eve. We we're there fairly early, 5:30, so it wasn't too crowded when we got there. However, as the evening progressed it was packed. That's always a good sign. This is our second year going in Christmas Eve. Food was great with huge proportions. We all took home a doggie bag. My daughter and I are vegetarian and there were ample choices for us. I had portabella Parmesan and my daughter had eggplant Parmesan. Both were delish. The short rib special my husband had, he said was delicious as well.
The ambiance isn't the absolute greatest, but service was excellent and well informed. Would recommend!!

The food was terrible. For some reason it has excellent reviews on trip advisor I really can't imagine how anyone who knows decent food could rava about this place. The chicken picatta looked and tasted terrible. The chicken was bland, colorless and tasteless. The pasta was ok. The calamari was rubbery and greasy. The she crab soup was salty and had a canned taste. This isn't even as good as Olive Garden let alone a real Italian spot. My advice is to try one of the nicer beachfront restaurants instead

This restaurant offers authentic Italian food just off the Virginia Beach waterfront. The bread and veal saltimbocca with spaghetti were very tasty. The Manninos Pinot Grigio was also very good. I will be going back for fresh fish later in the week.

The facility needs updating and is not very comfortable overall; however, the food was quite good. The clam appy did not live up to its description on the restaurant website but was still quite tasty. The veal stack - special main course was excellent, especially the sauce. The penne was too al dente for my taste and its sauce was bland.

It was our second visit to Mannino's. We met some friends as a prelude to our daughter's wedding. Everything was as expected ... the two most important, food and service, were top shelf. Don't hesitate to visit Mannino's for any occasion.

The MANAGER was HORRIBLE! Absolutely ruined the birthday we were celebrating. I will never return because of her. I go to the best and finest restaurants all over the country and she was just absolutely horrible when speaking to us. P

Decor needs updating. Crab soup and caprice salad both great. We went during half price wine time but the wine was not the best. We were used to their location on Pleasure House Rd and the oceanfront location was quite not up to their standards.

Went here on a recommendation from our resort Ocean Beachclub. As an Italian from New York we were pleasantly surprise. This restaurant would thrive in NYC. The food was amazing. The shrimp were cooked perfectly and the rose sauce was excellent.

The service and food were excellent! I mean, really, the best authentic Italian ever! We had the chicken parm, and from our server's suggestion, the Veal Saltimbocca. Both were excellently prepared! Save room for dessert..The tiramisu was hands down, the BEST EVER! My only complaint was that it was definitely geared toward tourists and not locals. Turn down the lights at least please! That would help make the ambiance at least a little more romantic and quaint. The food will make me go to Mannino's again, but for my date night, I think I will try a different location.

The wait staff was very attentive before you noticed you needed something they were there to assist you. Sebastian a great waiter. The food was perfect; we had the Caesar Salad, the Four Cheese Ravioli, and the Pollo Portifino. All of our dishes were far better than we even expected. We will definitely be going again in the future.
