latest thoughts on a mano (ridgewood)?

might be taking my parents and kids there this weekend...i've read that they were good, not so good, then good again. does anyone have any opinions on the place over the last 6 months? in other words, is it all it's cracked up to be?

thanks...

      1. it certainly is worth the trip.
        Simpler the better on the pies.
        Great salads also and absolutely save room for the desserts and gelato.
        Also byob.
        This place is off the hook great for pizza, true Neapolitan.
        Also buy one get one free mon thru thurs
        can't be beat
        forza pizza

        1. Have to agree that if you stick to the basics (salads and the pizzas--I do the margherita or the funghi/eggplant) it's still terrific. I haven't tried the recently expanded menu yet.

          1. gaj, the pizza has been up and down over the years, within the context of what it is. it seems to depend on factors which you could not predict. recently, i thought it was a fine representation of Neapolitan pizza, more so than I'd experienced last year.

            the bottom line is, if you like that style of pizza, you won't be disappointed. if you have a problem with that style of pizza (perhaps thinking it should be "more like Brooklyn's Pizza around the corner", or, "I couldn't pick it up and fold it") then you would have and will continue to be disappointed.
