Mannino's was recommended to us by the hotel we were staying at. The food was excellent, especially the Crab Soup, and the service was excellent also. Our server was Fionna. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great advice as to food choices. We would highly recommend Mannino's.

We have eaten at Mannino's in Portsmouth and in Virginia Beach. The she crab soup is the best. Their tiramisu is excellent. The pasta dishes taste like you are in Italy. I can't say enough good things about this restaurant. Mondays are half off wine bottles! My very favorite restaurant. Call and make a reservation if you are going during the weekend.
