Had the lasagna and it was nothing special. I did like the caprese appetizer very much. So-so service and boring décor.

We continue to return to Mannino's because we are always pleased with the food and the service. My husbands favorite is the Pollo Giovanni however I like everything. The hostess Devyn is so welcoming and friendly, and our server Amber is a fantastic server.

We visited Mannino's again for our anniversary. Never fails to deliver! Amber our waitress, was wonderful. She was friendly and helpful. I highly recommend the chicken parmesan. Enormous portions for great prices. Definitely one we will return to time and again.
