Mani Osteria Ratings and Reviews
A hit and miss experience... there were a few impressive dishes(salad, ribs), but the fritters and calamari was a let down... and both me and my husband had stomach ache after the dinner, but I will likely not attend this place very soon...
Great appetizers- all 4 were delicious. Had three different pizzas and all were outstanding. The three pasta dishes were completely finished and there was only praise. Negroni’s and beer selection were great. The cannolis for fresh and delicious. Service was perfect.
Good food, fairly good service. Definitely on the pricey side with dinner for 4 with 2 rounds of drinks topping 200 bucks!
We all enjoyed the marvelous small plates, the super fresh gourmet pizzas, and the arugula salad! Mani is the perfect place for a multigenerational family get-together!
The food and service were excellent. Everything we ordered was great.
Ate here with colleagues and it was a lovely meal--great food, great service!
Very accommodating and amazing staff. Very attentive and helpful. We had a guest in a wheelchair and Mani was very helpful with that. Enjoyed the meal a lot!!
Outstanding food as always and the service was friendly, timely and welcoming.
Really enjoyed our first visit to Mani Osteria. Fun, interesting, creative choices designed for sharing worked out great for our group of 8. Service was attentive throughout the meal, though I had to remind them to give me our leftovers. Unfortunately, too noisy for us to visit with half of the group.
Amazing! Great unique dishes. Beautifully executed. My favorite place in Ann Arbor!
Mani has become my favorite location for Sunday brunch in Ann Arbor. The brunch menu has something for absolutely everyone and the deal on the mimosas is unbeatable.
Great service, drinks and food. Ambiance nice but casual at same time.
High energy great service and good food
One of the best spots in Ann Arbor. Love everything we've tried here. The Caesar salad is unique and fantastic, topped with a breaded soft boiled egg that melts all over the salad. Can't come here enough!
I've been to Mani many times, but have to put their $28 Restaurant Week dinner among the best values in town. Two courses of individual small plates off their current menu, followed by a split-for-two-people pizza, followed by pistachio and chocolate cannoli. A few dishes stood out: the smoked eggplant dip and cucumber crab soup among them, while everything else hit their usual high standard. We arrived during an off-hour and were showered with attention by a skilled, personable server. The ambience started quietly but rose to Mani's normal buzzy level by the time we were finishing up.
Very loud, food average
My father literally called the spaghetti and meatballs "out of this world." He is not an emotional eater.
Everything was great except the noise level. It was soooo loud that you could barely hear the people at the table with you.
Not a good place if you want value for your money. The salads and pastas dishs are extremely small.
came here on a visit to UMich. Great place to eat with college kids. Fun food, family style
Amazing meal, but sorely missing the Mani Chop! Hoping it returns...!
We went to Mani when visiting our daughter at UM. Great atmosphere and food was great. Pizza crust delicious. If your r from NY, u will be impressed.
The food was great! Atmosphere and service too! I would recomend it to a friend.
We all had the fish which was amazing.
One person had pasta which was too salty to consume. Otherwise--all was fantastic!
Found the restaurant through mlives best MI pizza list 2 years ago. Had to try it for my birthday because of my love of great pizza. The food doesn't disappoint! Very tasty. They use the best ingredients and the resulting flavor is incredible. Last year we had a chef salad and 2 pizzas. This year we had the pork belly and some other pizzas. The taste of the pork belly was good but I wouldn't get it again. It was very very expensive and you only get a tiny little sliver. My favorite pizza we had was ham picante. Just the right amount of spicy and amazing flavor on the ham. My biggest complaint is the ridiculous reservation policy. Minimum party of 5. If you're not in a party of 5 you have to wait til you're 20 mins away to call ahead. They also really need more space. The tables are crammed in making you feel like a sardine. The lack of space makes it very loud and difficult to carry on a conversation with your table. Overall I enjoyed going.
We enjoyed the prixe fixed menu for New Years Eve. Two members of our group were allergic to shrimp, but they could not substitute that item from the fixed menu (even though they were offering the regular menu). This was discouraging and should be considered as many people are allergic to shellfish!
Otherwise we had a great meal and wonderful cocktails!
This is our go-to spot for couples or family dinners. Fun cocktails, terrific starters, and we love the pizzas and pastas.
All of the diners enjoyed their meals immensely and we are already looking for an opportunity to return - and we live nearly an hour away!
Delicious menu, great atmosphere and yummy drinks. Great place for an evening out or a special dinner!
Great food! Wonderful staff and warm reception. Recommend for all.
A good option downtown where everyone can find something they are happy with. Nice enough for celebrating something. Affordable enough to treat a bunch of people.
For was very good some very creative and delicious pizza combinations that would be worth another trip. Also awesome to find a place offering bottomless mimosas in the area.
Outstanding meal - great service and festive ambience!
Excellent service on a busy Sun night. Best papardelle I've ever had. Perfect portions. Lamb gnocchi was also a standout.
Best pizza in town. Long wait for the pizzas on this visit. They weren't very busy either. This wasn't our first time here so we were surprised at the wait.
loved the variety of food that was very tasty. Great drinks and service!
Love Mani Osteria. We always get plates of food and share with eachother. Nothing disappoints. The pork belly, octopus and the pickeled tomatoes starters are always a favorite.
Limited menu, kind of pricey for what you get. Spaghetti and meatballs at $17, a salad is about $8 extra as I recall. Food was good and service quick. Very noisy.
We enjoyed our experience at Mani's. The servers were helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. We over ordered so had some "doggie bags". Would love to come back.
Waitress was awesome since we arrived late and had to order quickly before kitchen closed. We did not feel rushed and had a excellent meal.
