Man Mano has opened at the new wing of Citygate Outlets, marrying innovative, family-style Italian cuisine and timeless tradition with a menu laced with house-made artisan pasta and delivering just what Tung Chung residents need as they progress through their busy days.
Man Mano in Italian translates as 'hand to hand', and means working with two hands to gradually improve or attain a goal. The new restaurant is inspired by the core of the traditional Italian family kitchen, where everything is made from scratch, allowing family and shoppers to enjoy honest, ingredient-driven cooking that soothes the soul.
Catering to 100 guests with comfortable banquette seating, the spacious 4,000 sq. feet dining room is dressed in pastel hues and soft earthy tones, as well as naked timber and ceramics tiles, vintage-esque pendant light fixture, and Italian country-side courtyard-inspired décor in rustic stone and brick.
Inspired by the unique landscape of central Italy, a scenic mural captures the beauty of the Italian countryside, and is accented by earthenware vases that add to the homy rustic charm. The space is filled with natural light courtesy of floor-to-ceiling windows that give the venue a warm, welcoming atmosphere.
In addition to the inviting dining room, Man Mano's sun-kissed alfresco terrace is the perfect spot for families and friends to unwind and relax.
Celebrating handpicked ingredients and delicately hand-rolled pasta, Man Mano takes on classic Italian flavours with modernity.
Whether you are craving soul-soothing pasta dishes or looking for finely crafted specialities, there's something for everyone on our menu. Consider sharing small plates of antipasto, followed by the highlight of handmade fresh pasta. Immerse yourself into the comforting tranquility with a glass of wine or house brewed nitro fruit tea.

Ideal for any occasion with warm and cosy atmosphere, an open kitchen pasta kitchen surrounded by the swirl of earthy, autumn tones. Ceramics, rustic stones and terracota tiles remind you of the warm sunshine and vibes of an Italian courtyard - accented by shuttered french windows that echo the distant trees and hills of Lantau.
