Walked in on a Monday night for a table of two (with no reservations), and they were packed. The staff greeted us warmly, and apologized that there would be a 15 minute wait. No problem for us. It was worth every minute.
The service is the best I've had in as long as I can remember. The staff is polite, attentive, and (at times) witty.
The food, though? The best Italian food I have had outside of Italy. The pasta was clean. The gnocchi was decadent. The house wine was far above typical house wine quality.
Don't miss this place. You'll be glad you went.
I'm a solo traveler and found the reviews being good for this restaurant. When I got there it was packed but they made a great effort to accommodate me on a small table. The service was incredible, the pasta, the best I've ever had, surpassing anything I've had in Italy or anywhere else.
Our experience here was 5 stars from start to finish. The service was amazing, our waiter was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu.
We had a group of 3 and all tried different items. The gnocci was perfectly done, one of the best I have ever had (including in Italy). The prices seemed very fair for the level of quality and service provided.
Went to Ristorante a Mano without reservations on a Wednesday night. They were pretty full, however we were able to snag a table for 2. After ordering drinks, another party of 4 came in and out waiter asked us if it was possible for us to move to an alternate table so they could combine two tables together to accommodate the table of 4. We had no problem doing this, and we moved. Our waiter then informed us that we could have another round of drinks on the house as a thank you!
They served complimentary bread, sliced meat and the BEST OLIVES I've ever had. My boyfriend ordered a tagliatelle dish (don't remember what was in it) and I had the penne arrabbiata. Both were delicious, the arrabbiata had onions and peppers inside that added different textures to the pasta. They even served complimentary shots of limoncello or sambuca, as well as a little baggie of MyTaxi sponsored gummies (lol).
Overall, I recommend this restaurant! Nice ambiance inside, extremely accommodating and kind waiters.
Great food and such fun/incredible service. We Enjoyed our time here! We had the Burrata, fish, and truffle pasta. They were all delicious!!
Ordered the beef carpaccio, lamb ragu, and truffle gnocchi. All were wonderful, but the Gnocchi was incredible. If you like truffle you MUST go here and get this dish. Service was great. Had reservations and were promptly sat. They were packed by 8:30pm.
My family and I recently took a trip to Berlin. After a couple days of doner, sausages, etc., we were jonesing for some good Italian food. After cross-referencing results between Yelp and Trip Advisor, we decided on Ristorante a Mano, one of the highest-rated restaurants in the area with a ton of reviews.
On the way, we were hoping that we weren't dressed too casually for the location. Upon getting there, our attire was no problem, and the waitstaff was incredibly friendly. We did not have a reservation, but that was no problem as we were immediately seated outside. I think it is accurate to say the waiters *rushed* to prepare our table. As we were seated, we promptly received bread as well as blankets to keep us warm. Our main waiter was Rosano (?), and he was very attentive, helpful, funny, and helpful. Honestly, he has set the bar for descriptions of service for my future yelp reviews.
We ordered the burrata appetizer, which packed a lot of flavor. Between the four of us, we ordered a chicken/mushroom pasta, a pesto gnocchi, a truffle ravioli (!!!!!), and a spaghetti and meatballs. All were rich with bold flavors. Maybe it's because we're from a couple of college towns in Florida, but we all thought the food was superb.
I have to devote a separate paragraph to the dessert. I think the general consensus among my family was that this was the best dessert we had ever had. Rosano talked us into the dessert sampler, and I wish I remembered better what exactly it consisted of. There was a moist tiramisu, a mango panna cotta, a pistachio ice cream (the best one there), and..... something else that I know was amazing but I forget what it was.
Afterwards, Rosano gave us complimentary drinks and called us a cab home. Overall, this was an 11/10 experience, and I will be recommending this place to any of my friends who are lucky enough to be in Berlin.
We came here after a quick decision for good Italian food. We did not have reservations, but were given seats immediately though our group of 6 had to be split up into tables of 4 and 2 (bigger groups can be accomodated outside, but it was cold).
One of the first things I noticed was how good the service was. The waiters were all very attentive. We were served bread w/olive oil and vinegar for free upon sitting down and they got our orders quickly.
I shared a cream of potato soup with truffle oil, a mixed salad with a sort of balsamic vinaigrette and beef fillet, and a spaghetti with garlic, prawns, and chili. The soup was delicious, though a bit on the salty side. The salad was alright, and the pasta was really good. And apparently there was one spaghetti in my friend's sea of penne. Overall, I would say this was a solid place for Italian food and I had nothing to complain about, but it was nothing too stellar.
Arrived without reservation and were immediately welcomed and offered glasses of wine while we waited for free. Super service and professional. Served food within minutes. Love this place.
Our apartment in Berlin was above this restaurant and we decided to have dinner here one night when we wanted to take it easy. We got a table easily without a booking, and they even moved us from a table in the middle of the restaurant to a more intimate table which was nice.
For starter we shared the antipasti platter between us which was a nice selection of grilled vegetables, meats and cheese. We'd also been given a bowl of olives and breads so it was a nice start to the meal. For main, I had the pasta with artichoke and prawn. It was perfectly fine although I much preferred it with Parmesan which took a little while to arrive. It had a generous amount of prawns and was a really tasty dish.
We shared a couple of 500ml carafes of wine between the two of us, and I think the bill was around €60. Service was really warm and friendly, and I thought our waiter was really nice. I'm not sure I'd recommend heading out of your way to go here as it wasn't anything overly special but it was perfect for us staying so close.
Es gab nichts, was nicht geschmeckt hat. 😁 Im Gegenteil: alles super lecker.
Das Personal und das Ambiente waren ebenfalls sehr gut.
Die Karte ist gut strukturiert und nicht überfüllt.
Das ganze kostet zwar auch ordentlich, aber das Geld ist es allemal wert!
War vor einigen Monaten dort und ist mir jetzt wieder eingefallen, als ich durch alte Bilder durch bin. Der Besuch war so fantastisch - keiner darf dieses Lokal in Berlin missen!
Das Essen schmeckt hier immer sehr lecker. Auch der Service wird hier noch groß geschrieben. Hoffe bald auch wieder das hervorragende Ambiente genießen zu können.
Das Ambiente und das Essen war sehr gut. Der Service einwandfrei und aufmerksam. Gerne wieder
Tolles Restaurant !!! Wir waren zu 4. da und alle waren mehr als zufrieden! Super Service. Garpunkt vom Steak würde leider nicht getroffen, nach Reklamation neue Portion. Dazu gab es noch als Entschuldigung ein paar Kleinigkeiten aufs Haus. Einfach super, wir kommen gerne wieder :)
Einfach spitzenmäßig und auf dem höchsten Niveau!
Service zuvorkommend und nett, man fühlt sich einfach wohl.
Die Nudeln waren ein Traum, ich musste sie sogar am selben Abend gleich nochmal bestellen weil ich nicht genug davon bekommen habe😉
Mehr geht wirklich nicht!
Wenn wir wieder mal in Berlin sind, dann kommen wir auf jeden Fall wieder vorbei!
Vielen Dank an das gesamte Serviceteam und den Koch. 🙂
Das Ristorante a Mano ist mein persönlicher Favorit für Fine Italian Dining.
Persönlich bevorzuge ich die Nudelgerichte und kann das Calamari Aperitif wärmstens empfehlen.
Die Kellner sind sehr zuvorkommend und freundlich. Preise sind erschwinglich und der dreijährige Jahrestag konnte ich da gut mit meiner Frau verbringen.
Sehr schöne und moderne Lokalität in Berlin. Alles modern, sauber und mit Geschmack eingerichtet. Die Speicherkarte ist gut aufgebaut und der Service freundlich und zuvorkommend. Die Toiletten sauber. Das ganze Lokalität ist gepflegt und nicht abgenutzt, obwohl gut besucht. Die Pizza sehr zu empfehlen. Der Teig knusprig & dünn. Der Belag frisch und geschmacklich richtg gut. Ein wunderschönes Lokal um in Ruhe etwas mit Genuss zu Essen und mit Freunden eine schöne Zeit zu genießen. Wir kommen gerne wieder, wenn wir in Berlin sind. Danke für den tollen Service, das ausführliche Gespräch und die kleinen Überraschungen für meinen Luke. Auch für Luke gab es eine Schale Wasser. Fazit: Exzellent und absolut empfehlenswert 👍💐 5 Sterne
