Delicious Italian

We had a really delicious meal at A Mano last night. Bertossi Group restaurants know how to put out great meals very consistently. The service was a bit lacking, although pleasant enough. I didn't get the second beer I ordered, the server forgot to put my cappuccino on the bill, and some woman... read more

A great location and authentic Italian food. Lots to chose from on the menu. At our table of 4 we ordered a variety meals and we were not disappointed. Pastas were homemade and the different meats cooked to perfection. Very good wine selection as well. You can sit outside or inside your choice. If you eat inside the atmosphere is... More

We were two couples and ate at this restaurant. We all ordered something different and each of us were very satisfied with the meals that were ordered. They were very tasteful and well presented. The wine selection is quite good as well. The setting is nice and there is outside dining as well. The wait staff is very attentive to... More

Loved the service, the setting and the food. We go there at least once a month and rarely a hiccup, Their flat bread is delish. Their fish in parchment also great. Just a great atmosphere,If ever a tiny thing wrong, you need only speak up and it is rectified.I don't dislike anything!

We have enjoyed fine dining at this restaurant in the past but just stopped by on a hot July afternoon for a Gelato ice cream on this visit. Delicious Stracciatella! Warm greetings and pleasant service! Never disappointed at Ristorante A Mano!

Very nice place, central location, cozy decor. Good service. But.. very salty food. Seafood soup had a layer of oil quarter of an inch thick. Price is moderate. Without wine we spent slightly over a hundred dollars before tips for 3 people. Each had an apetizer and a main + 1 double espresso which was excellent btw. Portions are big... More

We managed to get a table for 6 on a busy Saturday night last minute. We were lucky as the place was busy. Still the service was great despite the business. Our waitress was extremely accommodating with any request. The food is of great quality and very reasonably priced. Sitting outside was lovely too. Don't forget to leave room for... More

My family is in Halifax for one day only...we walked along the harbour front and looked for a place to eat. It was the middle of the afternoon so it wasn't busy, but you could tell it was a place locals ate at. When we left it was gearing up for big groups and the place started to get busier.... More
