Three tables for the same waiter were seated at the same time, which meant getting waiters attention difficult.

Third time dining in three months. Split course every dish with my dining companion. Truly the way to go. Fantastic scallop crudo, arugula salad, saffron tomato fusilli with lobster, incredible chicken Marsala and ended with Tiramisu just as good as I used to make as a pastry chef at a Michelin starred restaurant in Napa Valley. Let’s not forget the awesome Italian wine list. Thank you once again for another great meal!

We ate at A Mano on a weekend night and it was busy and active. The food was delicious from appetizers to dessert -- every course tasty and well prepared. We will be back.

This is now our new favorite SF restaurant! Outstanding meal! The Chicken Marsala was excellent and the Bolognese was nothing short of spectacular! Good service and a good wine list—love that an Italian rustica restaurant will carry a good California chardonnay. Focaccia is the best around and the caprese heirloom salad was also excellent. We loved our meal here and will recommend it to everyone!

Lighting is uneven. Our table was very (too) bright, others varied. The chairs are not high enough for the tables. Table came to our chests. We felt like little kids.

Food and service were exceptional.

The welcome, service and food were fantastic...about my only criticism is the space is quite small and a bit cramped between tables, but that adds to the overall charm. We had our toddler with us and they treated her and us like valued-regulars. The WBTG options were approachable and complimented the menu beautifully. An appetizer of heirloom tomatoes and buratta was exquisite and bursting with the last flavors of summer. We ordered two pastas (Basil Ziti w/ Crab and Saffron Fusilli w/ Lobster). Both were enjoyable but the Saffron Fusilli was the showstopper...WOW!

This was the noisiest restaurant EVER! Our group of six had trouble talking. The problem is a very loud evaporative cooler and two loud kitchen exhaust fans. The effect is a loud drone that causes everyone in the dining area to talk loudly to overcome it.

The food was very good, but a bit pricey. Ditto for the wine list. Service was very good.

We don't plan to return or recommend A Mano until we hear from other locals that the noise problem has been fixed. May be a while, I'm sure.

Very good Italian in a town where there aren't a lot of Italian choices (besides, of course, pizza). Not a big place, so reservations are recommended since it can get full quite quickly. When full, the service can be slow, but is always professional.

Warm and inviting atmosphere and our server was wonderful. She was friendly, made great recommendations and service was timely. The Frutta and Treviso salad was excellent with fresh peaches and delicious goat cheese. The Orecchiette with Fennel Sausage was delicious and the Orecchiette was and tasted homemade. My wife had the Fusilli pasta with lobster and was delighted with her meal. We shared a Crostata for dessert which as superb as well. Excellent meal!

The service and food were first class. The menu while limited offered enough variety. The wine list was vast. The only negative was that we were seated by an open window on a very noisy street.

Very pretty restaurant with nice atmosphere. We were very excited to try it since it had such great reviews. I’m sorry to say we were very disappointed in the food. I had the bolonaise pasta and it was very bland with rubbery thick noodles. The dessert was just ok. I will not be recommending this restaurant to our friends

Really excellent food. The shrimp scampi appetizer was very good and an unexpected preparation. My carbonara was excellent as was my wife's scallop dish. This is our new favorite place in Santa Fe. Even the wine was a good deal.

Trattoria A Mano was recommended to us by a friend whose culinary suggestions are always supported by personal experience, and comparative evaluation. We had no hesitation in accepting her suggestion, and were not disappointed. After three full days of wonderful and exciting regional meals, our taste buds simply needed reorientation back to something more readily recognizable. The challenge for Trattoria A Mano is not to disappoint well traveled Italian food junkies who have lived in Italy and visited on many occasions. After a full meal, there was no room for disappointment, only exhilaration. We will be back for sure.
