First things first, my partner and I love the evening atmosphere (yes, including the rude waiters), menu and quality of the food usually experienced and expected at Cicchetti. Breakfast however was a disappointment. The food was cold. These things happen... And it happened again. Following the first complaint, another breakfast was rolled out and was at best described as 'tepid'.... More

Ate here on a Sunday morning with my son, he has Bacon Sandwich (on lovely oven bottom muffin) and I had Eggs Benedict, which was very nice. The coffee was also very good. My one criticism would be that for £3.00 I'd expect the Orange juice to be freshly squeezed, not concentrate out of a bottle. That was the only... More

We usually eat In San Carlos but have been put off lately for various reasons. Tried this out before a concert and loved it. But like Italian tapas and the food was excellent. Service was good and loved the restaurant decor. Would recommend a visit-,we loved it!

San Carlo Cicchetti on Bridge Street, Manchester is attached to Kendals (House of Fraser) Store on Deansgate. The menu is fairly short yet very appetising. Dishes are small and designed for sharing or to be eaten by one person, a little like the Italian version of Tapas. The restaurant is buzzing (we ate at lunch time Saturday) and has a... More

Lovely and delicious finger food. Incase you don't know, it's small Plates of good food. So when they offer more and more, it's because it's served in small portions! Love the authentic atmosphere and amazing food!

My wife and I were taken to San Carlo Cicchetti in Manchester last night by friends. They had been several times, this was our first visit. There was a short wait for the table, so we sat at the bar and started a bottle of wine. I asked the head barman for his recommendations for red wine for the meal,... More

Much prefer Cicchetti to the main San Carlo - much more sociable and relaxed - sharing good quality food with friends accompanied with a glass of wine - splendid

After a hard morning shopping and a Clarins facial (sheer bliss) in House of Fraser, Manchester, we thought we’d try Cicchetti as we knew nothing about it. The decor was pleasing and the restaurant was clean and the staff welcoming. We decided to try some of the small plates with a glass of wine. We were recommended to choose 5... More

Manchester has a huge range of restaurants and this Italian tries to be different by serving Italian dishes in slightly smaller portions which they describe ax tapas style. The menu advises couples to have between 4 and 6 dishes between them. The other quirk is that what you order appears in a random order. We ordered two cold seafood starters... More
