My wife and I showed up without a reservation. We were seated promptly by the fireplace. Our meal was fantastic and service was excellent. The atmosphere was cosy, I would recommend paying Manninos a visit.

Had dinner there. Food was fantastic, as well as the service. Bar area next door was a little noisy, but not really a concern

My friend and I ate here on a Monday night. We reserved a table, as this restaurant is usually crowded. The meal was wonderful as usual, as I have eaten here three other times. I had the she crab soup, which is absolutely amazing! I had a late lunch and wasn't overly hungry, so I ordered a nice fresh salad... More

The Crab Soup was awesome. Perfect amount of cream, spices and sherry. After the soup you should run from this restaurant as fast as you can. The "Italian" food was a disgrace. Had a chicken with spinach and mozzarella covered with a mushroom and marsala sauce. No salt was used and the mushrooms were directly out of a can. The... More

People kept on and on about Mannino's She Crab Soup. And now I know why. Where has this been all of my life? On top of soup, and a lemon chicken dish with capers AND the best tiramisu E-V-E-R, I would gladly sell my soul. Can't wait to go back!!

The food is excellent at this Italian restaurant. They have all of the standard dishes as well as good specials. They don't have pizza but there are dozens of places that do at the beach. What is truly incredible here is the crab soup. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. You can't go wrong here.

When dining at Mannino's we choose to sit in the bar area where there are several nice, quiet booths. Generally, we are there before the bar becomes crowded. We always request Corey to be our server if he is available. He is knowledgeable of the menu and wine selections. The food is consistently outstanding as is the service.

Thank Teddy M
