Best of Halifax

Best Pasta

Ristorante a Mano

Gold Winner Ristorante a Mano

Silver Winner The Bicycle Thief

Bronze Winner il Mercato Trattoria

If you’re wondering what makes these noodles stand out from the bunch, it’s all in the name, really. “A mano" literally means by hand—and that’s the secret to these gold-winning pastas. “We do make it daily by hand, we have a small kitchen and a small restaurant, it’s not mass-produced. It doesn’t lose that quality,” says Ristorante a Mano manager Melanie Kronbauer. “And Maurizio is from Friuli, so there’s that authenticity too.” This is the second consecutive pasta gold for the carb-loader’s paradise, and a Mano also takes home Best Italian Restaurant.
