Our party of three had ravioli (husband says it is the best he has ever had) carbonara and beet salad with chicken. Everything was fresh and light, not heavy sauces. Delicious. The place was packed but they seated us at the bar top and were entertained watching the pizza chefs create their masterpieces in front of us Great experience all... More

Me & my husband made reservations here awhile back, had a lovely date night. We were placed in the back of the restaurant which was private and away from the rest of the tables which was nice. They had a good selection of wines, so we shared a bottle with our meal. We started with the calamari, which was average,... More

Wife and I were walking by as it was close to our hotel. We poked our head in and found it was nearly full. Had to be good. We enjoyed our meals. I had a pizza and my wife had ravioli and both meals were good. Lots of chatter and nice view out to the harbour

My husband and I stopped in at A Mano for pizza. We sat by the window and the waiter took our drink order. After about 1/2 hour we put in an order for an arugula and beet salad with a wonderful dressing, the salad was beautiful and fresh and very tasty. We then ordered a vegetarian pizza. We did order...

My husband has an Italian background so we are pretty tough judges of Italian food and this was great. It was the second time during our stay that we visited - the first time the queue was too long to wait with our two hungry kids in tow. This time we got lucky and we weren't disappointed. You may have... More

The food and service was wonderful!!!!! Had such a great time last week when we were in Halifax for a few day. The server was so friendly and helpful. Food was good and the atmosphere was great. Would defintly go back. The prices were resonable. Try the crostini with cheese and pear. So good!!!! I would definitely go back.

Had supper here yesterday with 2 old friends and as it was a reunion of sorts we were glad to be seated in a little alcove across from the bar. For a Wednesday night it was quite a busy place so be sure to make a reservation so you won't be disappointed. A Mano never fails - our server, Lauren,... More

The meal started out with good food however it was downhill from here on. The waiter left the dirty dishes on the table and never came back to ask if we wanted any dessert, more drinks. After 25 minutes I had to go looking for someone to pay for the bill. Disappointed with the poor service. There are lots of... More

We had a wonderful dinner at Amano last night for my Mum’s 60th birthday. Our server Alan was absolutely fantastic – thank you. Ristorante a Mano is my husband’s and my favorite restaurant. The food and service are always spectacular and we are never disappointed. Our favorites include the Antipasto and the Calamari followed by the Frutti de mare, Carne... More

Visited again. My party were happy with the food. It's a very difficult place to talk. I appreciate talking with my family more than the food.
