This is easy... Try the Shrimp and Grits with the "bottomless" mimosas. Great service and excellent quality food. One of my favorites in Ann Arbor. You can't go wrong at Mani Osteria!

Mani's is a little hard to describe for me, resulting in my title. The food here is good, definitely upscale. Presentation is great and it is tasty, definitely not a red checker tablecloth Italian place. It is casual, but some people are dressed up for dinner. It is one of our go to places for a good dinner. Happy hour... More

Can NOT say enough good things about Mani! A few words to describe: fresh -authentic -professional service -relaxing in a friendly neighborhood feel spot. I haven't had real Italian in forever that has equaled Mani's ... Like since 1995 (in NY) ..& actually probably not since 1985-in Italy. Nice job. We are already planning a return trip to Ann Arbor... More

We were craving pizza and Mani did not disappoint! We had a mushroom truffle and egg pizza. Service was good. Atmosphere was loud.

The pizza is one of the best I have ever eaten!!!! The service was also good. The atmosphere was nice. It was a little loud but not too loud.

My last visit was two years ago and it was OK. 19 months later? Either they upped their game, or I mellowed. Their wood-fired pizzas were always good, but this time the other stuff was also very good. For example, their mussels appetizer is meal unto itself with a side salad, such as the great arugula one. I've had better... More

Wonderful cold cucumber soup and shrimp pizza in white sauce. Delicious. Good service, too. Would have liked to sit outside but no umbrellas

Teenagers are generally uncommunicative but the cacophony of this industrial-vibe space, all right angles and concrete, made it almost impossible to carry on a conversation with my son the incoming college freshman, even at a relatively intimate two-top. Despite this, the mod Italian cuisine was quite enjoyable, in particular the Pappardelle Bolognese which tasted "fatto a mano" (the inspiration for... More

The food is OK, but the place is very noisy, if you want to have a meaningful conversation go somewhere else.

From start to finish, our experience was great. Robyn was our server, and she did a great job at making sure that we were taken care of. We sat in the back by where the kitchen ism, so we could see all the action. The Steak Tartare was awesome, so was the calamari, and the crispy artichokes. We shared a... More
