Mannino's Italian Bistro - Oceanfront
Mannino's Award Winning Crab Soup
Crispy fried cold water squid tubes with house marinara, parmesan cheese and herbs
My husband got the seafood pasta special and it was some of the best I have ever had.
Maninnos is a very moderately priced fine Italian restaurant. The food is typically consistent every time we dine here, whether at the Ocean Front or Princess Anne. This time I had an issue with my Chicken Parm, but took most of it home, so I wasn't able to advise the server. There was one inedible bite at the restaurant, which I assumed was just a bad butcher job, but when I ate the leftovers for lunch the next day there were many bad bites. I'm sure they would have made it right, so I am not deducting any stars for this. We will definitely return for some fine Italian food, in the near future.
Frutti di mare special was excellent. Bread was poor (dry/stale), definitely not Italian bread. Good service from Misty. Good location when staying at the ocean front. Parking available for guests.
Great food, fair prices, excellent staff, and a wonderful time my wife and I had!
Great First Experience, the bar tender and chef for the night did a great job
Dinner was amazing! All of our food and drinks were prepared perfectly. The only complaint we had was that our waitress was a bit loud and seemed to be having a tough night. She was nice, just seemed to be a little all over the place.
Ask for Bobby, he’s the man! Wonderful dining experience on a very special occasion.
Awesome everything, I’ll be back!
She crab soup and crabtini appetizers were AWESOME!!
Mannino's at the oceanfront is one of our go to restaurants when we want to have a special night out. Waitstaff is always friendly, efficient and personable. The food is good and plentiful and the menu is varied and suitable for anyone's taste. If you are looking for a friendly Italian restaurant for a romantic or special night out give Mannino's at the oceanfront a try and ask for Adam, he is a great waiter.
This was our first time eating here there were no disappointments. The food plates were largely portioned and tasty. We ordered a bottle of wine and were told it was happy hour, they gave us a discount on the bottle which was wonderful. The staff were very nice and personable.
Mannino’s continues to have the best Italian food in the Tidewater area. The menu is extensive, imaginative, and the food is always fresh!!
We are in the bar area and Julie, the bartender, waited on us and was fantastic! It was a great dinner with excellent personal service and we can’t wait to go back.
Adam was wonderful. He really made the meal. Can’t wait to go back again soon and ask for his section!
Food was amazing and service outstanding!
This was our first time going here. It was Virginia Beach Restaurant Week. We really enjoyed the 3 course meal and the choices they had for it. The crab soup is to die for.
Great place for a special meal! Scallops were delish and the wine pairing was just right! We'll be back.
The She Crab soup did not disappoint. So yummy! Greatly appreciate that you participate in Restaurant Week! Everything was delicious and portion was very generous.
Thank you for a great evening!
Our first time trying this restaurant. Went during restaurant week. Had a nice meal and we were able to try several dishes.
We loved our experience!!!
Went here specifically for the She Crab Soup and a glass of wine. Service was wonderful and the She Crab Soup was delicious. I would love to go back and actually have a meal. I would definitely recommend.
Food was delicious. Our server Adam was wonderful. We will definitely visit again
The food was delicious and huge portions, more than enough to share or take home for lunch next day! Our server was super friendly, super attentive, and helpful. The drinks were strong and tasty. The calamari was perfectly fried, not greasy and very tender. The pollo peporoni was so flavorful. The housemade mozzarella was the freshest we've had! And the hot fresh baked bread basket was never empty. We will definitely be back!
Bob was our waiter and he was outstanding. My husband, my teenage son and myself made a reservation and dined at Manning’s for the first time. The menu had many options and Bob made a couple of recommendations that were delicious. Overall, the appetizers and entrees were hot and absolutely outstanding. Everything was beyond our expectations. We will return again the next time we visit VA beach.
The food was very good and portions were more than adequate. The Italian bread was good also.
Service was wonderful and the food was absolutely amazing!
The best crab bisque ever! Entrees are truly authentic Italian and consistently delicious. The service is outstanding as well. A favorite restaurant to visit when in town.
Great meal and overall experience. Our waiter “Bobby” was awesome and he helped us work through our multi course meal. Would definitely recommend this place for an intimate dinner for two.
Wonderful dinner as usual! My favorite place! Service was great! Bobby made our night! Food was AMAZING!
once again, and outstanding meal with excellent service!
Service was excellent! She crab soup was the best I have tasted. I didn't care for the mozzarella cheese in the roasted garlic appetizer, and would have preferred goat cheese. Sausage, onions, and peppers was a tad greasy. Clams were good as well as the penne a alla vodka. Calamari was tasty.
My Wife and I had a magnificent evening. Both our meals were absolutely fantastic. During the entire meal my Wife could not stop commenting how savory and delicious it was. Thank you Mannino's. Your wait staff is outstanding and your food is extraordinary.
Great little Italian restaurant find! The service was exceptional. The food amazing and a lovely feel overall. We definitely plan on going back. Highly recommend!!!
Christmas Eve dinner was amazing. Our server Lauren was knowledgeable about the menu and was there to make sure our visit was incredible. I have ate here many times and I’m always happy with whatever I order. The food is the very best, you can’t go wrong with anything you order, all delicious! Kudo’s to Chief Carlos!
As always, a very enjoyable meal. We look for any opportunity to eat at Mannino's Oceanfront, and it was our first choice to travel to Virginia Beach for Christmas Eve dinner. Great food and service!
Loved this place. My friends and I had an ugly sweater couples night and none of us had been here before. The food was amazing and the staff were great! We are definitely visiting again
The food was delicious best she crab soup that I have ever tasted The service was excellent Lauren was our server she was very professional and knowledgeable
I expected a little more ambiance. The food was good, waiter was attentive and friendly, the interior was very dated and didn't look clean. It could use a makeover.
Perfect date night restaurant!
I can't say enough about Manino's. It was a most wonderful restaurant with great service, wonderful food, and a fine time we had. I will definitely return in the near future.
Very average American Italian restaurant. There’s nothing authentic about this place unless we’re comparing it to other American Italian restaurants like Olive Garden. Service was better than average, but otherwise this place was very forgettable.
