Best Italian Restaurant

Gold Winner Ristorante a Mano

Silver Winner il Mercato Trattoria

Bronze Winner Rinaldo's Italian American Specialties

Last winter, when Ristorante a Mano closed for two months and gutted the place, people freaked out. There were calls and messages fearing a menu change. Someone even asked if they could buy bulk salad dressing to get through the renovation. “We have a very tried-and-true menu that people have come to love. Most of our other restaurants do seasonal changes but we don’t do many at a Mano because the menu works for us,” says GM Patrick Gaetz of the beloved Italian eats at this repeat winner. “We’re not against trying new things, but it works the way it is.”

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
