“B Plus for A Mano”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

After a long day we needed a fresh and flavorful neapolitan pie and A Mano was on the to do list. Got right in and was greeted by a friendly and professional waiter who never failed us throughout the night. There are several rooms andvwe were seated up front, which was slightly sterile and a bit lacking in positive energy. The back room seemed more cozy and lively so try to get in there. Now for the food- calamari was fresh and plentiful however both it and the marinara lacked any distinct flavor and punch. We ordered both a Regina pizza and a margharita pie, the latter being our favorite of the two. Pizza was fresh but slightly bland and not very substantial. We had to salt quite a bit to bring out the flavor. Overall, we were satisfied but there will be no lingering "crave factor". More flavorable local coal oven pizza choices include Brooklyns and Anthonys.

“Disgraceful Service”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Our 2-year old son has severe allergies and can't eat food served out- so we bring his food along with us- not our choice- we do it because we have to. We eat out a lot and this has never been a problem. The owner Carlo Orlando told us he was "taking the seat of a paying customer." That's actually what he said to a 2-year old. The pizza is great but that's disgraceful behavior. We walked and we won't be back.

“Superb Pizza in upscale modern setting”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Its a casual but upscale Pizza restaurant. Absolutely one of the best pizza's I ever had. Very light crust, delightfully fresh, delicious toppings. They have two large brink ovens in a modern open kitchen setting so that you can see your pizza being made. Service was prompt and courteous.
We brought our own bottle of wine but I believe the menu also had a very limited set of bottles of wine available for purchase. They have a nice selection of appetizers such as meat balls, mussels, calamari and also some nice salads as well as a selection of pastas.
We couldn't resist and even had the chocolate pizza for desert.
