We were in Ann Arbor for a day and did an internet search for good Italian food. Mani rose to the top and we called, on a Thursday, to ask about reservations.

We recently visited 2 times in the past month for dinner. We actually sat in the same place at a table near the bar where it is fun to watch the people on the street. My husband and I ordered the Arancini, which had a light, flavourful romesco sauce that we loved. We also ordered the Sausage and Peppers Pizza... More

The lamb kabobs were succulent and not chewy. The sides were also good, the tabouleh in particular (not spoiled by too much cilantro as is common) but I would have been happier with a few more veggies. The owner (?) was very helpful and friendly, explaining the country of origin of the dishes. The live music was more entertaining than... More

I ordered the prosciutto and fig salad. Every bite was amazing. Figs were delicious. prosciutto was delicious. The Gorgonzola was super creamy. The candied almonds were amazing. Every bite was a burst of flavor. If you order take make sure you grab a fork :-)

The food at Mani was excellent, great wood fired pizza and two excellent pasta dishes. Service unfortunately does not match the great food and lively atmosphere. Our server did not offer cocktails and had a bit of an attitude almost a faux friendliness. We made it through dinner ok but the attitude came back when there was no offer of... More

Went to this restaurant for the first time during the recent Ann Arbor art fair. It was a wonderful experience in large part due to the service of the bartender Ronnie. She was extremely knowledgeable and took time to explain the menu and make suggestions, which were all incredible. Loved the food, which was unique and not your typical Italian/pizza... More

The environment is very nice, with outdoor seating options as well. I found the selections to be of a good variety to suit many preferences, yet still a nice consolidated menu. We shared chicken páte starter, then shared the arugula salad and pizza margarita 12" pizza. At lunch time, they offer the Italian Job, choices of salad and then an... More

Excellent restaurant serves small portions to be shared by all the diners. The atmosphere is a bit noisy, but the waitstaff are friendly and everyone seems to have a really good time. The restaurant is less expensive than most in downtown Ann Arbor.

Great place centrally located in Downtown Ann Arbor. Visited during the Arts Festival so everything was very busy. Waited a bit for an outdoor table but well worth the wait. Food was excellent (especially pizza) and service is friendly and efficient. Liked it so much we went back the next night (much shorter wait for indoor seating). Can't wait to... More

We stopped in, as it looked interesting, for a drink and a small bite. It is a modern looking place - mainly a fancy pizza place, in downtown Ann Arbor. We had some white wine from the loire Valley which was very good and an appetizer- Arancini- rizzotto balls with cheese- also very tasty. We were looking to take a... More
