Inconsistent, but when it's good it's brilliant!

Been here many times. Most of the time it's a great experience, but there have been times (at least 3 I can think of) where it's been a disappointment. Not wanting to dwell on these too much... But they're lack of wanting to fix things when it's not right really does surprise me. On a positive... read more

We ate here for the first time last night. As it's rather like an Italian tapas restaurant we weren't sure what to expect. We ordered the shared vegetarian starter and four other dishes and they more or less came at once. It wasn't a problem, though. Each dish was delicious and beautifully presented as was every item in the shared... More

Love Cicchetti. The food, the atmosphere and the staff are brilliant. Me and my daughter go here after shopping and we have never been disappointed. On our most recent visit I had the tartare of fresh tuna mixed with olive oil, french mustard, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar & wild rocket. One word WOW. The tuna was so fresh it melted... More

I think my title says it all. I love the location of this restaurant, the service, the layout (we always try to get a table in the window). The wine is reasonable & always delicious, the menu has a lot of choice & each dish is always spectacular. The gnocchi is incredible - i can't rave about this enough! We... More

We've been eyeing this restaurant during our biannual day trips to Kendals for a while now, but it's so well soundproofed from the department store & street surrounding it that you don't get a feel for its ebullient & very Italian atmosphere unless you're actually inside it. Yesterday we finally took the plunge - & from now on we won't... More

I visited here for the first time on my birthday recently with my wife. It was so disappointing. We are big San Carlos fans and visit there at least 6 times a year in a big group. We therefore thought we'd try their smaller venue on the opposite side of the street. How wrong were we to do this. After... More

Dropped by for a quick lunch as it is handily placed in the House of Fraser store Enjoyed an excellent Rossini aperitif and had the smoked chicken caesar salad which was fresh and tasty. I am a fan of the San Carlo group as you can rely on the quality of the food.A good lunch spot and you might spot... More

I've been to San Carlo 3 times since discovering it a month ago, and every time the food has been excellent, unfortunately the first 2 times I went the service was absolutely terrible, third times a charm I guess since service on the last visit was spot on, hopefully this would be the standard of service all the time. But... More

We always wanted to visit this restaurant situated at the House of Fraser, and we did this time. Friendly Italian waiters, excellent service and good quality food. This is a place to visit indeed.

We had lunch here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Authentic Italian food and service, as most of the waiters are from Italy and love speaking Italian with you! We had very tasty food, I particularly enjoyed the lasagne which was excellent. We will definitely visit again, tutti brave!!
