“As close to real italian pizza as it gets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013 via mobile

With imported flour from Italy for their pizzas homemade pastas and mozzarella . This place is great . They have a full menu but I always get a pizza and salad. I e tried their pastas and they're delicious also. I love that u can watch ur pizza cook in the large open aired setting of amano. Te fact tht eerything is so fresh and they really strive toe it just like eating in italy keeps me coming bavk. They're desserts are also homemade and amazing. Try the italian cheesecake! My favorite or the tiramisu!

“Amazing personal pizza”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

We visited A Mano with our friends who were visiting from out of the country to introduce them to American pizza because of the good reviews. We were a little concerned when we arrived and it was empty. It did quickly fill in as the night progressed though. Service was very nice and was ok with us switching tables twice while trying to find the warmest table for our pregnant friend. He was also nice about giving the specials 3 times to our jet lagged friends and making some substitutions for them.

I tried the special pizza which had roasted peppers, chili oil, bufalo mozzarella and spicy sausage. This was absolutely incredible and nice and spicy. It was hard to finish the whole thing, but I found room because of how delicious it was.

I also really liked the ambiance as it was cozy and personal. The huge pizza ovens and watching the pizzas prepared was also very nice. I also loved that it was BYOB.

“The best personal pizzas stateside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

I come here often because the personal pizzas are just phenomenal. So fresh. Great dough. Tasty toppings in good combinations. Sometimes their special pizzas are great; in fall they have one with figs and prosciutto, and another one with butternut squash. The pizzas are pricey but if you come early in the week, they are two for the price of one.

“Try the Meatballs?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I know everyone is talking about the pizzas, which I think are very good. But did you try the meatballs? The best I ever had. Decor okay, friendly service.

“Disappointing meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012 via mobile

Pizza was not good. Ordered the a mano pie and another pie that was one of the specials and both had the same soft spongy crust. Lemonade wasn't good either. Took a while for them to take our order. Pizza overpriced. Good aspects - pizza came out quick, nice ambience. Won't be coming back.
