This joint has an old-school vibe and classic Italian food. I thought everything was very good, including the food, service, and ambiance. We sat at the bar and the bartender was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the restaurant's offerings. I had the gnocchi margarita and really liked it. The ingredients are very fresh. My husband got the veal Marsala which they customized for him by substituting peppers instead of mushrooms. They were happy to accommodate us. Overall very nice spot for some classic Italian cuisine.

I have been a regular customer now for over two years. The staff and ambience makes diners feel like they are visiting family and friends. The food is consistently delicious. As an Italian-American who grew up in New York, this restaurant is the real deal.

Nice Italian restaurant, not right on the beach, but just across the street. Food is awesome and fresh, wine list could use a little help. Worth a visit.

I have been going to Manninos since I moved from New York to Virginia Beach almost eight years ago. I highly recommend it if you want a delicious meal and great service. This is not my first review for Mannino's, Kempsville location but for the past six months on a weekly basis I have been ordering take out meals and I am hooked on them.
I order Chicken Francese and it just gets better and better.
Chris the bartender is excellent and is always pleasant and is an asset to the restaurant.
Grace the hostess takes the order by phone and speaks so professional every time,it sounds like a recording. She too should be commended.
Thank you to the cooks who do such a great job every time.
I love the atmosphere and it is such a cozy restaurant for all occasions.
