“It’s kind of like walking into little Italy in Halifax,” says Bertossi Restaurant Group’s John Michael Brewer, of Bishop’s Landing hot spot, Ristorante a Mano. “It’s that edge that makes it the best Italian in town.” The edge he’s talking about is the lively, noisey, chatty atmosphere, the checkered tablecloths, the front row seats to where they make the perfectly charred brick oven pizzas happen—all details that have made the restaurant a downtown favourite for eight years.
