I love the fact that this location I can just about walk to from my house. We stopped in last night for their restaurant week specials, and boy, they did not disappoint! Large portions, fresh ingredients and magnificent service from Diane made for a top notch experience! Come hungry!

Excellent dinner. Eggplant parm for me with enough leftover for the next nights dinner at home. My son had the same experience with cheese tortellini and chicken. The service was outstanding, it took a little longer then expected as the chef redid my eggplant since he wasn't happy with my original plate.

I love good Italian food and Mannino's has it! The atmosphere is very nice and the staff is great too. They have several locations, but I've only been to this one. I would highly recommend it. Delicious food.

Mannino's ( Old Towne Portsmouth) has always served up great real Italian dishes, with very good specials ! The family influence shows in their consistent attention to detail. The servers are always wonderful. For a corkage fee it's nice to have the BYOB option. Last, but most certainly not least, Mannino's has without a doubt the absolute best she crab... More

Although a great Italian restaurant, it has the best she crab soup in the tidewater area and has been awarded the best by several food magazines and contests. Their Chicken Parmesan is the best I've had with two big breasts and their spaghetti on the side can't be beat.

We came in on a random Tuesday, just my wife and I, not knowing what to expect. We have never been to any of the 3 locations. We heard about this place from a friend and wanted to "give it a try". As soon as we entered the well lit, small dining area, seperate from the bar. Our waiter James... More

Mannino's offers authentic Italian cuisine. I especially like the chicken marsala. Their bread is delicious and great to sop up the last drop of the marsala sauce. Mannino's has THE BEST SHE CRAB soup I've ever had! I love She Crab soup and have tried it at many places to claim theirs is the best. Mannino's is consistently delicious.

Mannino's is a restaurant where you would like to order two bites of everything on the menu. On our most recent visit, my husband and I opted for two classic entrées, lasagna and pesto linguine. Both were prepared perfectly and complimented by a wine choice recommended by our server, James. For as good as the food is at Mannino's --... More
