Upon arrival there was no wait. We were taken to our table. Service was excellent including meeting the chef. Food was fabulous. Even offers half servings of several pastas. Feels like you are in Italy.

Outstanding food and service. Recommend making reservations as seating is limited. Allow a little extra time as there’s not a lot of parking close by. My only criticism would be their vent system. Could smell strong odors while we were there. Definitely recommend and plan to return!

Not only the best Italian restaurant in Santa Fe, but one of our favorites anywhere. Restaurant design allows customers to observe the chefs/cooks working in their galley kitchen – including making their homemade pasta.

Their 13-hours osso buco is amazing and their eggplant parmigiana and Orecchiette Al Sugo are fabulous. While we're not typically dessert eaters (most are too sweet for us), their tiramisu and apple desserts were delightful surprises. Wonderfully balanced, not too sweet and a delicious way to finish the excellent meal. An expansive wine menu with a variety of prices makes for a perfect dining experience.

The wait staff is engaging and clearly enjoy working and supporting each other.

Can't recommend this gem enough!

I discussed gluten free choices with the waitress but when our meals were delivered I asked the server whether mine was gluten free. He checked and said it was not. My companions went ahead with their food. Mine was delivered some time later. The sauce was delicious but there was very little pasta--which is the whole point--handmade pasta. Comparing my plate with my companions, I had about 1/4, not even enough to twirl around just threads. I will not go back or recommend it. Too bad.

In a city full of great restaurants, A Mano is at the very top - clearly one of the best. The pastas are other worldly. It's on a par with the best Italian restaurants in Chicago and New York.

Appetizer and pasta were excellent, the entrée was extremely over-priced and not good at all. As an example my entrée came with Brussel Sprouts, they were mushy and blended in with the sauce the dish was served with. The wine was also over-priced. If we go back it will only be for the pasta or take out pasta. I would not recommend the restaurant, it is certainly not a good value for the quality of the food.

Best homemade pasta outside of a Italian grammar as kitchen! The service was perfect. They didn't rush us and we took our time enjoying every course. They were attentive to every need. Amazing wine list. They even had Seghesio our neighboring winery back home in CA. our favorite.

Over priced for the quality and small servings. Ordered arugula salad and rather than a salad, it was a couple pieces of arugula on a plate with a couple olives and whatever else. Very odd. Make sure you ask exactly what you're getting when you order.

The meal at A Mano was one of the best meals I've ever eaten at a restaurant. The Osso Buco with polenta was a generous portion, perfectly cooked (13 hours must be the secret), and completely satisfying. The five orange salad was light, citrusy, and flavorful. We watched as the pastry chef made our zeppole fritti and filled each zeppole with a very high grade of dark chocolate and a gentle dusting of powdered sugar.

The maitre de was friendly, thorough and helpful with answering our questions. She also was quite aware of us throughout the meal and at our departure.

It was a wonderful dining experience. Thank you.

We have eaten several times before here but found this to be our most disappointing visit. The service was fine. The people very pleasant but the food was just so thoroughly "just OK." One constant plus is a very good wine list with a number of interesting wines at a reasonable price.
