Mannino's Italian Bistro - Kempsville
Fried Mozzarella & Zucchini
Battered in our house Peroni beer batter and served with fresh marinara
Meghan was our server & she took great care of us. Will definitely be back & asking for her as my server.
We could not have asked for a better time and quality of food! Everything was great!
First time….incredible food and service! Will be returning!
Great she crab soup, chicken parm and fried mozz appetizer is always my go to’s. Best in the area!!
Never had an unsatisfactory meal at Mannino’s and this experience was no exception. Best She Crab soup in the country and best fried oysters of anywhere in the area. Fresh pastas and sauces make everything perfect!
The food was excellent as always. We go there twice a year when we are in Virginia Beach for the She Crab soup. There is always a nice wine selection and the service is outstanding.
Our waitress/food was incred. Sat in front section
The food is amazing! So fresh & delicious, they are known for the she crab soup & its a must try-even just a cup. They had a Lobster Mac & Cheese that was rich & creamy & did not disappoint with the amount of lobster in it! This is not a pizza joint its an upscale Italian restaurant
Mannino's on Princess Anne hides in a bland strip center with an unremarkable street view, but inside is a haven of good service, wonderful menu offerings, and quite remarkable food.
If you have even a tiny fondness for she-crab soup, indulge yourself in their award-winning crab soup. I have never seen any restaurant put even half of the crab meat in their soup as Mannino's does. A slight sweet taste of sherry tops off their signature dish.
Don't go here looking for beef, but if your taste buds are craving artfully prepared salads, soups, fish, chicken or veal, prepare for a real treat. Their Veal Saltimbocca is the finest I've had anywhere, as is their she crab.
The meal and service was outstanding. Of course, I started with the She Crab soup. Always a fine experience.
Great food, servers - especially James- are consistently exceptional and welcoming.
Excellent food and service! Very affordable! My favorite Italian restaurant!
Never disappointed eating here.the food was great and so was the service.can’t wait to return for another excellent evening of dining
Manninos is one of my favorite local restaurants. The food is always delicious, service great and nice atmosphere. Our server was Rachel, who was great. The staff works well together, helping each other out. I’ll be back!
Great food and service! I appreciate a restaurant that is consistently good.
Birthday celebration dinner. She crab soup, entrees, and dessert were fabulous. Our server Fayth was excellent (thank you!). Will continue to return - highly recommend!
The food was good, thoughtful menu and carefully prepared, service of this class is not common outside of the city.
Food was excellent as usual. Waitress did a great job - seemed like kitchen was a bit slower than normal but could be because they were busy and/or staffing issues. Will definitely return.
I’ve been to both the Oceanfront and now Kempsville location. The customer service offered by this family business is like no other. The food is absolutely delicious, the ambiance is delightful and the people are amazing. Has become one of my favorite places to dine!
Typically excellent. Totally safe and satisfying for gluten free celiac.
Dinner at Mannino’s is always fantastic. We’ve never had a bad experience. I highly recommend it.
Dined on Monday which is 1/2 price bottles of wine.
Crab soup as always was outstanding. The caprice salad although not the traditional
style was delicious. The four entrees which ranged from pollo, vitello, Scampi and Portabella were all cooked to perfection .
James is an excellent server
When our regular Italian place was booked for the night, I did a search and found Mannino’s and read the good review’s. We made a reservation and gave it a shot.
It was amazing! The portion’s are more than adequate and the presentation was superb. The service was great and our Server was friendly and helpful.
This will now be our ‘Go To’ for Italian.
Always great. Food and service!
Our 'go-to' place for a consistently delicious original Italian meal with outstanding service staff!
Delicious food. But extremely disappointed with under staffing. Waited over 90mins for food order. Reservation was made a week out for 7 guests for a birthday but they were not prepared with staff. I would have left after 60mins if not for it being a birthday. They offered no discount until I said I won’t be returning.
Great food. Always the best Veal Parmesan in town. Great service.
The food was amazing and we had amazing service!
Fantastic Italian food as always. Service was good even though short staffed and busy. Thanks to Diana for her usual great service and recommendations.
The food was wonderful! Unfortunately, the service was not. I asked for a straw 3 times and finally got one when the bill came. No one came by to refill coffee, tea or water. Not once. No one came just to check on us. Very neglectful.
Delicious food with excellent service. Best she crab soup hands down! Would definitely go again.
Great food, value, and customer service. Definitely recommend!!
One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Amazing food and service every time we visit.
Best service from the young man seating us to Diane, our server. She was outstanding, personable, attentive, and friendly. Food was amazing. Be sure to get the award winning She Crab Soup!
Always delicious. The staff is terrific as well.
Great food and great service.
We love this place. We have gone there for many years, several times each year. Love it Love it. But I think it's time for some remodeling. Benches are now needs attention etc. Thank you.
Overall a great time. The front booths by bar need a little updating. And the prices were a bit high but nothing unexpected since the menu is online. Overall would come back and enjoy a date night or girls night with friends. The service was great as well. Both waitress and hostess were friendly and engaging.
Excellent food! The specials of the night were amazing. The she-crab soup continues to be an all time favorite.
Always a great dining experience
