Mamma Mia it's good!

The staff are busy; some have a sense of swag; and the Maître d kisses those he knows and barely acknowledges the rest of us... however it is still, without doubt, one of my most favourite restaurants in Manchester.

Had lunch as a group of four recently (March 2015). We hadn't been before and didn't know what to expect but everything was explained clearly by the waiting staff. The concept is basically Italian tapas and the dishes are served as soon as they are ready. Everything we had was very good quality and some dishes were particularly memorable (bruschetta,... More

Love it here. The food and drinks are always perfect, and the staff are fantastic. It's extremely busy on Friday and Saturday nights but it is still always as good. Prefer here to San Carlo.

Absolutely fantastic for lunch! A great varied menu with something for everyone and a good atmosphere to boot. I would recommend 6 items between 2 and then go from there. Great service and always entertaining, well worth the price.

Well, let's go straight to the point the manager is so arrogant, rude and weird! I took my cousin in October 2014 for a dinner there and the manager was walking between the tables like if he was in a race or something! then there was two men sitting at the table next to us and he kept going to...

My daughter treated us to dinner at Cicchettis - it was our first visit and it certainly will not be the last. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome and the staff were congratulating us on our anniversary. The place was buzzing and had a great ambience. The service was first class and the food was absolutely delicious.... More

I dine here on a regular basis and its a 'banker' for myself and my girlfriend. You know this place is doing something right when there is never a free table! On arrival you are always greeted with a warm welcome there is a real character and buzz about the place. The menu has a wide range of choice with... More

Great quality produce, portions were huge also...definatley going back again to try something else from their breakfast menu. The inside is also really well... More

I wouldn't say this is the best Italian food I have ever had but it was good. Our waiter was superb, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was buzzing which is always nice. I would say it is perfect for a group of friends (rather than couples) as the atmosphere is quite loud and boisterous. We both thought it was... More

Reviewed on a single visit, early evening in March 2015. Who: we've eaten a lot of Italian food, mostly in Europe and Italy, but we're not experts beyond that. It's a tapas style place. Our four dishes ranged from very good to pretty fabulous. The place is not cheap, but the quality is very high. The wine was overpriced. We... More
