Had dinner for two at Mani Osteria on a cool and rainy Sunday evening. The atmosphere inside was warm and inviting. There was plenty of other diners but we were seated without waiting.

Been a few times now, both for lunch and dinner as the pizzas come highly recommended.The pizzas really do stand out from the crowd with an light Italian base with interesting flavour combinations, they come out nice and hot served on an upturned marinara sauce tin. The restaurant can be noisy, the tables are small and the decor is functional... More

I have been to Mani for lunch and dinner but am glad we stopped in for brunch. I couldn't decide between savory or sweet so I ordered both the eggs diavolo & the strawberry/lemon ricotta pancakes (which were heavenly!!). My son ordered the salmon pizza which was also good. Definitely will visit, again for brunch!

This is much more of a creative restaurant with a California flare. They are always busy with good reason. They have very creative, tasty food that is farm to table. Great wood fired pizzas and a full bar. The wait staff is incredibly friendly and knowledgable. I would recommend this as the best restaurant in Ann Arbor.

We enjoyed our meal in this very popular eatery in the middle of downtown Ann Arbor. We were in town visiting friends who took us there. The service was excellent. Our server was attentive and helpful about what to order. The mixed drink I had was excellent as well as the glass of Malbec I enjoyed. I enjoyed a pizza... More

The mussel appetizer is phenomenal. This really could be an entree. These Prince Edward Island bivalved delicacies are plump, served in a leek, garlic, butter brother, with toast points to slop up all the godliness!! The thin crust pizza's are small, but full of flavor. Happy hour IS happy!!!

Five of us went to Mani Osteria last week. Dishes were pricey but well cooked, with one exception, the crispy pork. One would think that crispy pork would be crispy - not in this case. It was woefully undercooked - blubbery even. As that constituted 50% of my dinner it was a major disappointment.

Had a wonderful friendly server who was very knowledgeable about the menu and what our options were. I tried the cippolini based on her suggestion and I wasn't disappointed. Another friend had the gnocchi and he enjoyed that. The menu has quite a few different options. I would come back and try a few other things on the menu next... More
