Description: In the time-honored tradition of great local haunts, Trattoria A Mano is the neighborhood Italian spot you hope to find in your travels. Featuring Northern Italian cuisine in the fall and winter months, A Mano ventures further south to coastal climes in the spring and summer, bringing you a wide range of delicious options. A Mano means “handmade” in Italian, a concept that is carried through all aspects of the kitchen repertoire, from daily-made fresh pastas and flavorful sauces, to the house-made focaccia, satisfying salads and hearty entrees. All desserts are made in-house under the guidance of our master pastry chef. Combining a well-chosen wine list with draft beers and attentive yet friendly service, A Mano is perfect for a family outing, a get-together with good friends, or that special celebration or date night…. A Mano – tiny, cozy, relaxed, playful, fun and delicious. Reserve now!

The food was great, the service was great, the waiter, Clayton was so nice, atmosphere was wonderful, it was all great. When could not decide on the desert, Clayton brought both and only charge for one. He made the evening so enjoyable. He even said if our son didn’t like his entre that he would eat it. We would definitely eat there again, next time in Santa Fe.

Spending a long weekend in Santa Fe and in an attempt to not get burned out on southwestern cuisine, we opted for Italian. We arrived early for our reservation and the maiter d', Elise, was welcoming and attentive. She helped us find the perfect wine while our table was being prepared. Our server, Sam was great. He made perfect recommendations and his knowledge of the menu was spot on. Finally, we were assisted by Clayton who was friendly and wrapped our evening up with some nice conversation. We had a wonderful experience from start to finish. Fantastic food, excellent service, and a welcoming atmosphere makes Trattoria a must in Santa Fe. We look forward to coming back on our next visit.

we visited the Trattoria a Mano for the first time and we will be back for sure. This lively bistro has a wonderful menu, delicious food and friendly service, but the food is what makes it truly shine.
We shared an appie of grilled octopus romesco sauce with white beans-the octopus was perfectly grilled, flavorful and moist, the romesco was perfect and the white beans had bite to them-relish. My husband had the pasta vongole-it had 12 clams and perfect fresh pasta-but the brodo made this dish a standout-perfection! It takes confidence to feature this dish, which is a staple at most Italian restaurants.
I had a special of seared scallops on zucchini/lobster latke on pureed artichoke. This dish is creatively conceived, but it needs some texture because all of the components are about the same texture, and I couldn't taste the lobster. If the latkes were crispy (maybe potato instead of zucchini and if the scallops were more seared...) it would also be a standout dish. Their wine list is extensive. We chose a glass of cava.

A bit of a gem in old town. A warm and inviting atmosphere combined with a terrific and reasonably priced menu and friendly knowledgeable staff. We walked in without a res at a busy time and they were able to place us at a nice table within 10 minutes. Great meal.
