Teo's and Mano A Mano owner, Sam Colosimo, is a successful entrepreneur based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba. He has played an integral role in the continuous growth and development of Winnipeg's restaurant and nightlife scene, and has owned many successful restaurant and bars throughout the years. Sam's empire has grown to include Winnipeg hot spots, Blush, Desire, Market Burger, and most recently Brooklynn's Bistro and Boa Lounge located in downtown Winnipeg.
Sam believes it is important to stay true to your roots. Growing up with a strong understanding of his Italian heritage, he decided to bring authentic Italian back to the Corydon strip, which has been popularly referred to as the "Little Italy" of Winnipeg. In August, 2013, Sam opened the doors to Teo's and Mano A Mano, a restaurant and lounge that features modern Italian comfort food, paired with contemporary wine, and cocktails made with house made syrups. With the help of General Manager, Charles Garcia and Executive Head Chef, Dustin Pajak, Teo's and Mano A Mano strives to provide an engaging and unique dining experience to Winnipeg residents.
Teo's is a contemporary, "upscale-casual" cocktail lounge, featuring an outdoor patio, a bar, and seating for approximately 50 - 60 guests. The industrial garage sized door located at the front of the lounge offers our guests the unique ability to "see and be seen" while also providing the perfect view of the lively Corydon strip. The lounge is a modern space that provides the perfect setting for after-work snacks or weekend drinks, and frequently showcases Winnipeg's best live music acts.
The restaurant is an intimate, elegant space that features a private outdoor patio, a wine bar, and a dining room that seats approximately 40- 50 guests. Mano A Mano is Winnipeg's premier private event location and is the perfect location for private parties, wine and culinary functions, and corporate events.
