A Mano PHL
This is our neighborhood gem! My favorite go-to and soooooo lucky to have them nearby!
New dishes: flan, fritate & gnudi are all fabulous
Had a fabulous anniversary dinner. The service was terrific and the food was wonderful. We tried the tasting menu. It was a ton of food. We loved all of it. We brought our own wine. We would eat here again.
So delicious, so comforting. Tight and noisy, but it doesn't detract from a great dining experience. BYO is the cherry on the Sunday.
Great for foodies. The chefs are on view and take real pride in producing fabulous tasting food
Would highly recommend the Abbondaza for anyone dining at A Mano, especially if you're dining with friends. The food is fantastic and you leave stuffed for $65. This is our second time dining here and we've loved it both times. Would highly recommend A Mano to anyone looking for an Italian BYOB offering great value or to anyone looking for Philly restaurant suggestions. Will definitely be back.
From arrival to departure A Mano is a wonderful dining experience. The staff is attentive without being fawning. This is a BYO so check out the menu online so you know what you want to pair with your choices. We began with a few small plates to share among the four of us, the tuna crudo, mushroom ravioli and the pork belly, plus a small plate of the goat cheese gnocchi. I cannot say enough how utterly delightful these all were and they paired wonderfully with the Rhône red we brought. Main courses were pork shank (me), fruiti di mar, chicken Milanese and duck. Everyone raves about their entrees and they all paired perfectly with the Bordeaux blends we brought. Desserts were delicious with sparkling wine and a late harvest Chambourcin. They offer a four course family style dinner option as well, and we will try that in our next visit. A Mano is definitely going to be our go-to dining spot.
We love this restaurant. The dishes are inventive, always with wonderful complex flavors and consistently balanced. The service is exemplary.
We went for my birthday on a saturday night. The service was great and the pastas good too. A few dishes have chile in it and spicy so I could not try them. Energetic vibe but the hard room makes it noisy. So understand that. Prices were fair for entrees but dessert portions were smaller than we expected. We like to share but not possible with size. We would consider going back though we do have to drive there.
Great experience. Our friends want to go back again.
All pastas are amazing; down to the detail. Really nice place to go and share with friends.
The highlight of A Mano is the food. We both had the mushroom ravioli, which was absolutely phenomenal. My wife also had the cauliflower appetizer, which she loved, and I had the bucatini all'amartriciana, which was quite spicy and quite delicious. The service was fine, and the noise level was not bad at all, we could comfortably converse without distraction from other tables. As we live in the neighborhood, A Mano will remain one of our regular haunts.
This is our favorite restaurant in Fairmount. We come for special occasions, a group dinner or just date night. We bring most guests visiting from out of town. It is delicious!
Our experience from stepping in was exceptional. Warm greeting, knowledgeable server, excellent food.
Loved the food and service but the atmosphere was much too loud for us! Everyone seemed to be screaming to each other to be heard. Maybe someday the acoustics can be modified to help diners enjoy the dining experience a little more.
This is the 3rd time I’ve been here, and I just love everything about it. May it live on forever
One of the best Italian places in Philly! Excellent food and service!
Great... but it wasn’t very apparent that it was BYOB and cash only...
Great food. Simple but delicious. Good atmosphere. Underrated restaurant for sure.
We continue to return to A Mano as our favorite restaurant in Philly. Always GREAT food. Chef Michael has an uncanny ability to layer flavors - such that each dish has multiple savory tastes. Never all blending into one single flavor - nor competitive - but complimentary, interesting, provoking, and always pleasing.
This visit the Strozzapreti was out of this world - more crabby than crab!! Truly remarkable. The Black Olive Fritelle was a delight - and the charred flavor just the right accent. The semifreddo - and its combination of smoke and caramel was beyond compare. Can't wait to get back!
Amazing! Great homemade Italian food and great prices! Small cozy atmosphere, with visible kitchen right in dining area!
Delicious food. The music was a bit too loud for the ambiance. Service was outstanding and knowledgeable. Food was wonderful. If you like savory non-traditional Italian food, go to A Mano.
Each meal was outstanding. Flavors were amazing.
Wonderful experience from beginning to end - can’t wait to come back!
Best dinner I’ve ever had. Highly recommend the chef selection
As always, an amazing dining experience.
Consistently great restaurant.
Extraordinary! Staff is welcoming and the food is absolutely incredible.
First time there - delicious food, great service - byo keeps tab down - will be back!
Ambitious and creative menu. Some of the dishes were better than others. We loved the goat cheese gnocchi and the polenta and the semifreddo for dessert was superb. The appetizers were less successful. Some of the flavor combinations were a bit much for our palates. Overall, we would definitely come back.
Don't usually come to the Fairmont section of the city and wanted to find a restaurant close to where we were visiting. Excellent food and service.
What a great experience. The food was amazing and the service was superb!
Always a delicious and pleasant experience. Fantastic bread service with sourdough focaccia and cultured butter.
Diverse, unique menu. FYI.. byo and cash only. We had a great night...
Consistently good food. BYO status evens out the robust entre pricing. Our fav in Fairmount by far
Food was very good. Pasta was outstanding. Service is very good. Prices are a bit on the high side.
We had a birthday dinner that was delicious, with the pork belly and pork as a stand out. I love the crab spaghetti...simple and delicious. Our shared dessert was a lovely coffee semi fredo. A neighborhood place for us...and we love it.
Everything was delicious. Sarah is so nice. She made the experience even better. We’ll be back.
