We spent a week in Ann Arbor and ate at Mani twice, the first time by recommendation from a local. Despite being busy the staff were attentive without being intrusive. The food we had was excellent. We have sampled two different pizzas, two salads, two mains, two starters and a dessert none of which we can fault. The wife says... More

I have been here several times and highly recommend this restaurant. Love the cheese plates & wine selection is amazing. The pasta dishes are really good- recommend the chicken & sage pasta. Great energy I have always had really good service from the staff. The bartender will give you samples of the wine to make sure you will like it.

Mani's has been my favorite Ann Arbor restaurant since it opened. My husband and I have eaten there at least 30 times, and we have always left in a happier mood. Their menu is varied yet simple. The pizzas are delicious and cooked just right; mussels are fresh, steamed and served with a toasted baguette, and the large portion salads... More

Easily some of the best Italian we've ever had. Everything was outstanding, starting with cocktails, wine and arancini and finishing with the best cannolis you can find outside of Greenwich Village. In between was a fantastic wood-fired neopolitan style margherita pizza and fresh pasta dishes that were just as comforting as they were creative. Equally impressive was the attentive, friendly...

The dressing on their Caesar salad, combined with great cheese and crisp Romaine and the wonderful egg on top made it the best Caesar I've had. I loved the Tartufo Pizza with truffles too. Calamari was a delightful starter. The chicken entrée was perfectly prepared and sauced. Because it worked for our schedule, we dined early on a Saturday evening... More

I really want to Ike this restaurant, but it's not doing much to help me with that. Went for the third time at a off hour, Sunday at 5. Place was practically empty. Hostess, if you can call her that, was on the phone and kept us standing and waiting for10 minutes while ignoring us. Bartender was free but did... More

Loved the food but hated the wait. They don't take reservations so we put our name in and were told it would be a 45 minute wait. It turned out to be closer to 75 minutes. The atmosphere is hip and bustling and the food was great. We shared a bunch of dishes but our favorites were the salads and... More

There are many unique items on their dinner menu, such as pickled tomatoes or tartufo pizza (with an egg on it). The ambiance is very lively though a bit loud, the service is great (both the wait staff and the reservations who found a table for me during an overbooked weekend), and the food (all the pizzas are great) and...

Very lovely restaurant. The menu is fairly small and full of items we were not familiar with, the water was wonderful and thoroughly explained the whole menu. With a party of four, we ordered one appetizer, one pizza and three pastas to share amongst the table, and although the portions looked small, it was more than we could eat. The... More
