“Good Food but just so loud”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

A Mano is a nice restaurant the only reason I gave it an average rating is because the atmosphere was just not for me. The place was packed and seemed way to loud and busy. We could not have a nice conversation because we had to yell across the table to be able to hear each other.
I am a Pasta lover and will try to come back at some other time where it hopefully won't be so full.

“Wonderful Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We really enjoyed the break from the traditional sea food when we ate here. The menu choices range from pizza and pasta to steak. I had the veal marsala which melted in my mouth. Be sure to try the authenic Italian gellato.

Tortellini Al Prosciutto was amazing! It's 2 months later and I am still thinking about this amazing dish!

“Excellent all around!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

One of the restaurants recommended by the Tourist Bureau. Stopped in at 6:00PM the Saturday of Labor Day Weekend. We were told without a reservation the first table available was at 8:15PM.

Sat at the bar instead of waiting for a table...we were hungry. Service was excellent! I had one of the best salmon dinners in years,including a recent trip to Alaska. Prepared with a little bit of a crust and a sauce that was unbelievably tasty. My wife had a beet and goat cheeses salad, followed by pumpkin stuffed pasta with hazelnuts, excellent!

Price was more than reasonable. Definitely will be back.

“Very popular and for good reason”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

If you can, call ahead to make reservations otherwise you'll end up at the bar. Even though I didn't get a table the service, food, and atmosphere made up for it. Wide variety of Italian food that is a welcome change to the typical fish offerings at the boardwalk.
