My family and I had dinner last week while vacationing in the area. Aundria was our server and she was simply phenomenal - ask for Aundria when you go. The chef went out of her way to create an off the menu dish for my son - gnocchi Gorgonzola - his favorite dish - and that was most appreciated. The... More

She always excels and provides great customer service as our regular hostess, but this weekend she was provided the opportunity to serve our table, one of her... More

The mozzarella is a must, try it with a little olive oil and balsamic. We additionally had the shrimp pasta that was full of flavor but light and clean. The house wines were equally tasty, we had he chianti. So good!! Let me go into the service too. Our server was a senior in high school and such a professional... More

We came in after a wedding with a party of 12. We were seated pretty quickly during a busy time. Our waitress cut me off twice while speaking with her and never gave drink refills. I had the eggplant parmesan and kids had spaghetti and soup. All were good. My husband had a seafood fish and said it was good.... More

Starting it off with: This is must try! Andrea was my server. She is nice and had to put up with my late arrival. I walked in at 10:35pm and they were empty and ready to close. So I ended up being the only patron in there. And was treated with excellent service! I was recommended to try the crab... More

Mannino's has reliably delicious classic Italian food! I've sampled several entrees...cheese tortellini (my favorite), chicken marsala, spaghetti, lasagna...I've never been disappointed by the food here. The award-winning she crab soup lives up to its reputation. It's so flavorful with just the right amount of rich creaminess. The desserts are definitely worth saving room for -- cannoli, tiramisu, and cheesecake are... More

I had an incredible meal here but the most impressive thing I ate was the crab soup. I started with the appetizers of fresh mozzarella and zucchini. I thought the breading was a bit too much it just wasn't very cohesive. The marinara was amazing though. We both ordered the special of the evening two different specials and they were... More

The decor is warm, welcoming and cozy. The food, as always, was well prepared and delicious. Perhaps it was because we were there on St. Pat's weekend and they were busy, but our salads arrived before we finished our appetizer so we were trying to eat both and still take time to visit with family who had driven up from...
