This is genuinely the best Italian food I have ever had, (short of going to Italy itself!). The menu is slightly different in that all options on the menu come as sharing dishes, rather than individual main meals. We chose 6 and it was more than enough for 2 people. The food was so fresh and absolutely delicious. I cannot... More

If you are in Manchester on a Sunday morning a Cicchetti breakfast is a lovely treat. Service can be a little slow, but worth the wait.

We have ate here quite a few times over the last few years because the food & ambiance is great. However on saturday we went in with friends & we were told we could have a table in 1/2 an hour which was no problem. We had a drink at the bar & after 1/2 an hour we were shown... More

we went here about 11:00-ish in the morning. They basically told us that breakfast must be ordered immediately or else we have to wait an hour for lunch…so we sat down, bottoms barely on chairs…and the waiter impatiently shouts "can I take your order now?" whilst planting the menus in our hands!!! We are not the the type that are... More

Small,casual, vast selection of fun,sample of everything from pizzette, to croquettes, octopus salad,sicilian sausage, great way to try alot in small portions although it is catered a little for the English palate as opposed to Italian native. I INGREDIENTS are authentic though.

First visit to this lovely place which I will be visiting again if in the City. It is done like a tapas style although the portions are bigger! Gorgeous food and prompt service. Puddings also great.

Lovely breakfast in lovely surroundings. This restaurant is on the ground floor of the House of Fraser complex. It is a great spot for breakfast and on the two occasions that we ate there it was very busy. Would recommend the English breakfast at £6.95 - plentiful and tasty!

Having enjoyed a good lunch at San Carlo, we decided to go to the sister restaurant San Carlo Cicchetti for dinner. We ordered 3 plates and we were told that all would come at the same time, however this did not happen. The pizza arrived and the next pate did not arrive before another 15 or 20 minutes. Then 2...

The food and service here were both excellent. It is the Italian equivalent of tapas so be prepared to share. Portions are bigger than you might be led to believe by the staff and menu: eight dishes were fine for four of us at lunch. The only criticism I would make is that the tables are a little small for... More
