Food was excellent! I really like carbonara. Have little luck finding good carbonara locally but this was the best I have had since I was in Italy. Service was very good...waiter was attentive and helpful. Wine also very good..but pricey. Try the bread pudding for dessert!

My wife and I visited a Mano to have lunch, were pleasantly seated, served coffee and water ... and then never saw a waiter again. Twenty minutes later, we walked out, hungry and disgusted.

Went here recently with four other people. I booked late but the restaurant was able to fit us in at our preferred time (on a Friday at 6 pm!). Not only that, but we had a very nice table. Our server was very helpful in answering our questions and letting us make 'adjustments' to our order. Everyone loved their choices.... More

Have eaten here numerous times with my wife. We both really like the food, and I specially like the Italian seafood soup.

Good menu with excellent options for pizza. Can take out and sit on the waterfront. Can also sit outside when the weather is good and people watch. service is prompt and with a smile. Tables are too close to each other and did I mention that it can be loud?

Its fine nothing amazing just a good meal they are owned by the same people as Bicycle Thief , My guess is this is one step down from that . The menu is fine if you there for a business lunch i found it a little thin for dinner . All the dishes were well prepared just not terribly exciting... More

Delicious food. The atmosphere is fun and more family inviting than Bicycle Thief. Great service. Servers are passionate about their jobs.

There was a good selection of in every category (appetizers, salads, pizza, pastas and meat / fish). I chose to have pasta and was able to customize my order with a mix... More

I was in town for a Dj gig for New Years. The restaurant was recommended to me last minute as I was looking for a good meal before my show. Best recommendation, the food was great. The drinks were great, the service from the two bartenders was great as well! I can't say enough, make sure to check out this... More
