This location is permanently closed. Too bad. Don't try and make a reservation. They still sell their crab soup and marinara sauce at the local farmers' market.

Mannino's was a great place to eat but unfortunately the building owners decided not to renew the business's lease. Mannino's is out of business and permanently closed.

Mannino's is an awesome restaurant. The food is always outstanding. So many choices whether it's Italian food or Seafood. Plenty of options. Dave is a great manager and we enjoy our Friday evenings at the bar when he bartends. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming.
