Great meal at A Mano…

I had a great meal this week at a little BYOB gem in the Fairmount section of Philly.  I first heard about this place on FYI Philly and decided to give it a try.

The restaurant itself is beautiful.  The decor is simple with an open kitchen.  There are lots of deep grays and reclaimed wood.

A Mano is the real deal people!  All you can eat Olive Garden garbage it isn’t.  This is real Italian food, not the Italian-American junk you so often find in the USA.  The appetizer and pasta portions are on the small side but you can order a “double” of the pasta portions for a larger meal if you like.  The main dishes were large portions.

Fellow eater and I enjoyed the grilled octopus appetizer, tomato chitarra, lumachelle all’amatriciana, and the chicken milanese.  Everything was terrific.  I would definitely order all of these dishes again next time, though I’d like to try some of the others (I’m looking at you, calabrian seafood stew).

A Mano is located at 2244 Fairmount Avenue.  Keep in mind it is BYOB and cash only.  They have a really nice website at  Happy eating!
