We visited mannino's to celebrate our friend moving to a new house. Our Friend has special needs and is not always received well in public. The staff made her feel as welcome as any other guest and our party was fantastic. The appetizer "Crabtini" is the most decadent delicious dish one can imagine with lump crab meat and shrimp served in a martini glass with truffle butter. Daily specials are luscious. Drinks and an excellent wine list complete the great food and service.

I have been here several times for lunch. They always run delicious lunch specials including salads that have tons of flavor. The she crab soup is a MUST, I get it every time no matter what.

In looking for a place to unwind after work,it was suggested that we give this place a try.We were not disappointed. The setting was very quite,with a few people and we were actually able to have a conservation,without having to shout.We had Mozzzarella Branchetta for appetizer,vert good. For dinner I had Fettuccine Alferdo.. Portions were large. I also had a glass of wine to round out my meal. Server was very nice.
