A Mano's authentic Italian food is flavorful, without being salty or greasy. The name change has not effected the quality of the food, which is made by the same chef, and continues to be consistently excellent. I've been coming here for years, whenever I come to Salem. I highly recommend this place.
Their house made pasta is well worth the hour drive from my home. My favorite is the tagliatelle alla bolognese, a meat sauce over delicate pasta.
The mussels appetizer is amazing! It's well prepared, and contains no grit, or pearls. It has fresh tomato sauce with fennel seeds that enhance the dish, without over whelming it.
The tiramisu is light, airy, and indulgent, without being overly sweet.
The service staff is friendly, and the modern rustic decor is a welcome change from the stereotypical Italian American restraunt. So eat here, because it's one of the best restaurants in Massachusetts.
