It is a fun atmosphere and the food is fantastic. We were a bit surprised that they did not offer a bit of bread as we had at The Bicycle Thief but we were plenty full at the end and didn't miss it. We had a fantastic salad with avocado, papaya, and lime vinegerette. DELICIOUS. Then we both had tortellini... More

This has been on my list of restaurants to try for quite some time, so on a girls' night out we finally made a reservation and went! (Note: reservations are strongly recommended. This is a Bertossi Group restaurant and was packed to the rafters on a random Wednesday night! Our server said that is their normal for every night of... More

Two things about Ristorante a Mano made it a truly memorable experience. The first was the Agnolotti di Zuca dish that i ordered, and the second was the atmosphere. Don't get me wrong, the cocktail and soup i ordered was good. The pumpkin cheesecake i ordered was also good. However, the Agnolotti was heaven on a plate. So decadent and... More

This restaurant is on the ground floor in the complex in which I live. We dine there perhaps twice a year, but take a pizza home every couple of weeks. The servers are very well trained, pleasant, and courteous. They know the menu very well. The food is in typical Trattoria style, with the pizza much closer to Italian style... More

Nestled on the Halifax waterfront, Ristorante a Mano is a lively, noisy and engaging eatery that serves up excellent thin crust pizza, innovative salads and for those who do not like to share their food - ample plates of good pasta and seafood. The wine list is a nice fit for the very casual and relaxed nature of the place... More

We found the A Mano on the web site..it was rated highly and did not disappoint. Very good food, courteous and helpful service and good value...reasonable prices for the quality. It was busy and a bit noisy but that is what success and popularity brings. Myrna and Bob Regina Sept 2014

Our suite overlooked this restaurant's patio, we could see that it was busy and chose to ate there the night of our arrival. We ordered Pizza and a couple pasta dishes and thoroughly enjoyed. So much that we returned several times during our two week stay. Right from the appetizers through the entree's to desert Ristorante a Mano easily satisfied... More

Casual decor. Excellent pizza. The calamari was so good, it reminded us of how our friend, who is passionate about calamari, cooks it. Lightly coated. Deep fried to perfection. Great price point. Loved the beet and goats cheese salad. No complaints here. It was terrific. Oh - one wee thought. Ok. Two. 1. Very limited selection of local wines, but... More

This restaurant is located in the harbor front walkway, nice ambient. The pizzas are really made with plenty ingredients, made exactly how you ask for. The desserts are big, good to share. Excellent place.

It was tell tale when we arrived at 8 pm on a Tuesday and the place was packed! Lucky enough to get a table for 3 without reservations. Food was outstanding! thought the sausage stuffed ravioli would be too heavy but they were heavenly! The Pinot was best we've had. Save room for dessert- each one better than the next.... More
