First Taste: A Mano Brings Handmade Pasta & Italian Hospitality to Hayes Valley


Jovial service, simply delectable Italian food, and playful décor lend A Mano all the fun vibes and foodie cred you could want—any day of the week.

Meaning "by hand" in Italian, A Mano is the latest project from restauranteur Adriano Paganini of Back of the House Restaurant Group (Beretta, Belga, Super Duper). The menu makes decisions tough with a killer selection of pastas made in house daily, as well as crusty pizzas, antipasto and, Italian wines and cocktails. Even better, it's affordable, with pasta entrees starting at $13. Viva Italia!
