To me, excellent pizza is about creating the perfect marriage between the dough and its toppings.  In my opinion, there are only two places in A2 that have mastered this art: Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales and Mani Osteria & Bar.  Mani's pizzas are prepared via wood burning ovens.  They use high quality ingredients and most are locally sourced.  I appreciate their vision of simplicity and creativity with their dishes.  We love their Wood Fired Pizzas - they are all so delicious!

Our friends (Jon and Fi) rave about their handcrafted pastas and Antipasti dishes.  We look forward to enjoying the pickled tomatoes, pastas and calamari - of which Fi talks so highly about!  Mani offers a fantastic lunch special which includes a salad or soup with either pasta, sandwich or pizza. They also have a kids menu.  They offer a full bar with craft beers, old world wines, specialty cocktails and a good selection of scotch and bourbon whiskeys.  I am consistently impressed with Mani's fabulous hospitality, knowledgable staff and AMAZING food!
