We had a reservation for 8 people on a Friday night, the table was all set for us when we arrived. We ordered cocktails and wine which arrived promptly and were delicious. Most of us had salads to start- I love the beet salad. A few of the girls thought their mushroom pizza's were under-cooked (They had some moisture on... More

The menu is limited to Italian but this is not just your garden variety chicken parm and fettuccini Alfredo you'd get at Boston Pizza or Jack Astors. These are all original menu items. All the food was delicious. No bread with the meal is a real negative for me. The service was accurate, friendly, somewhat attentive, and very slow. But... More

A Mano was actually our second choice for dinner when we couldn't get into The Bicycle Thief without a reservation. But that turned out to be fortuitous as we had a delicious meal and excellent service by beautiful Tara at "a Mano." My husband had the Chicken Saltimbocca, which he enjoyed. I ordered the Haddock dinner, but when Tara apologetically... More

We hadn't been there in some time, but went last week for an excellent dinner. This place has lots of atmosphere, terrific Italian food, and is reasonably priced. Their chicken penne with mushrooms is beyond good. Very busy place, very fun!

As a solo traveler I ate at the bar. The menu was wonderful, I went for the antipasto plate and the gnocchi al pomodoro e ricotta. It was delicious, the drinks were great, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere put the whole experience over the top!

I had the most delicious thin crusted pizza with what appears to be a white sauce and mushrooms. I still think of it to thus day! Perfectly paired with a Peroni beer!

When in Halifax... one must taste the local fare as much as possible and this visit we enjoyed several new restaurants as well as a couple past favourites, which is where a Mano fits. Of all of the restaurants visited, we have come back to "a Mano" more than any other. Not just because the food is good, but because... More
