    Another great dining experience @ Manninos. We had a new waitress, Fayth, who was very friendly and attentive. Our meals and wine were delicious and service was great. Looking forward to the next time.

    Mannino's Restaurant Week is a MUST. My favorite spot for Italian, anyway, and you can't beat the special pricing! Waiting for them to open a closer location so I can eat there more often!

    It was our first time to Mannino’s. We decided to try the restaurant week menu offerings. Started with the calamari ( not a restaurant week offering but worth it!) Some of the best I have ever had. Light and not at all rubbery. I did also REALLY enjoy the she crab soup…. Yum. I’ll return for that alone! The portion sizes were large and ended up taking the cannoli home for a delicious late night indulgence 😉 we all agree we have found a new favorite! Thank you for a great night!

    Restaurant week deals on 3 course meals. Great tomato sauce on meat ball and eggplant parmesan. Divine Cheesecake, Tasty salad and melt in your mouth rockfish. Super recommendation on the Sauvignon blanc . Haven't been in a long time and still one of the best

    We enjoyed an evening with friends we have not seen in a few years. We have been to Mannino’s numerous times over the years. The food was a bit disappointing, not up to the quality level that it was in the past. Overall, we had a great evening.

    We had not been in a while but the food was as good as always. It is some of best Italian food in town and a few dollars less expensive. Service was good. Server was really busy but others helped out when he was busy with large group. Great food, excellent value and good service.
