I guess I'm disappointed because with all of the amazing reviews, I came here expecting to be blown away. The pistachio and red onion pizza was tasty (above average) and the picked tomatoes were interesting flavors, but I almost sent back the nicoise salad thinking that they had forgotten the tuna. When I noticed very tiny flakes on the salad,... More

Yes, one of my favourites in Ann Arbor. Great pizza, great environment, and overall, they have Fernet! (which is not so common). Thin crust pizza, no deep dish style, cooked at your view. If you are alone, you can even get one of the bar seats in front of the kitchen, a bit noisy, but it is amusing.

The pasta carbonara I had here may have been the best carbonara I've ever had. The sauce was rich and creamy without being overpowering, the pasta is bouncy and fresh, and the poached egg on top is the perfect touch. Also good is the polpette pizza, which it's touch of spiciness. As for the dessert, the cannolis cannot be missed!... More

Not only were the food and drinks great, our server made the meal very special. She was friendly, efficient, and very knowledgable. She really cared that we had a great experience. The cauliflower starter was fantastic. The main course, an egg plant pasta dish was delicious and so very nicely prepared. The michigan peach and blueberry cobbler was a great... More

Really impressed with this place. We shared a delicious pork belly appetizer. I had the gazpacho, which was perfect for the hot summer day, and the pizza was very nice, although I regretted not getting a pasta because I tried some of my friends, and it's amazing. They make the pasta in house and they cook it just right.

Our grandson picked this restaurant to celebrate his birthday. We had been here for a brunch but this was the first time for dinner. As our son said when reading the menu, is this all. The menu consists of antipasti, pizza and pasta dishes. Most of the menu items were in Italian, unique and hard to understand what they were.... More

I cam here with family and friends for dinner and needless to say everyone was very impressed. We came on my recommendation, I work at one of the hotels in the area and I often recommend Mani to our guests. We came for dinner and we were seated very quickly for a group of six. Our waitress was very understanding... More

My husband and I brought the kids here for a really lovely meal. I thought the red sangria was fabulous and my kids were smitten with the strawberry mint lemonade. My husband raved about the crispy pork belly. The pizza was very good and our service was impeccable. Looking forward to another visit here.

A little pricey (even for Ann Arbor) to eat, but excellent pizzas. There are at least a few vegetarian options, with some tasty toppings, don't expect large pizzas but each is enough for one or two. The ambience is nice.

I've lived in Ann Arbor now for about two years and I had been wanting to eat at Mani Osteria for about that long. I frequented it's sister eatery next door, Isalita all the time. They knew me so well there that they always knew what drink I would have, Blood Orange Frozen Margarita of course! Mani's always seemed crowded... More
