Great food and service! There was a long wait though.

We came here for dinner as we had heard that it had great gelato. We came as a party of 5 - 4 adults and a child and were promptly seated. The one thing that was a bit concerning was that we think that the waitress forgot to enter our order. We noticed that people who came in later than... read more

My wife and I had visited Amano on our last night of vacation from Ontario. All I can say is our entire trip was made by this last night out on the waterfront. We were lucky to get a spot outside and our server, Bree, who was also from Ontario, made our evening with sparkling conversation and wonderful service. She... More

My family and I had dinner at this restaurant. They were packed inside so we thought since is was not raining we would sit outside. Unfortunately, the wind picked up, the drizzle started and it got cold. The restaurant had shawls that we all used and we asked if a heater could be moved over but that didn't happen and... More

I'll start by saying Restaurant A Mano wasn't my first choice of where to eat in Halifax. I hadn't come all the way to the east coast to eat the same Italian food as back in Edmonton. But... I was only one of a group and was outvoted. The restaurant was nice enough but I found the menu limited and... More

Restaurant A Mano was always one of our go to places to dine with friends and family. We always enjoy the busy, fun atmosphere and the menu selections. However our recent visit was very disappointing. We usually order a pasta dish or a pizza but this time we both ordered the haddock. It was incredibly salty and did not need... More

Went for lunch with some friends. We were seated quickly and offered drinks. We ordered and then relaxed in a very comfortable atmosphere. Food was phenomenal with great taste and nice sizes portions. Would definitely go back!

Just arrived from UK. Very tired but wanted a quick meal. Stumbled on this restaurant. Excellent meal, quick and efficient service, reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

This restaurant was a delightful surprise. The service is 5* and the food couldn't be better. I tried the gnocchi and they are the best I have ever try... and trust me... being part of an Italian family, where the gnocchis are a must, this was something really special.

The service, atmosphere and food here were all great. We sat on their patio and were able to be seated right away with no wait time on a Saturday-the inside of the restaurant was completely full though. Their patio is covered, which was great as it was sprinkling a little while we were eating. Our server was very friendly and... More
