Myself and partner travelled to Manchester for lunch out on 31st August, I had heard good things about Cicchetti so this was top of my list to try. We entered the restaurant that had customers but not busy. We stood a little while at the entrance waiting to be seated, no one came over. I could see staff chatting to... More

We visited the restaurant before a show and enjoyed the cicchetti we ordered and also the staff who looked after us.The best thing is you choose many small plates which are authentic and get to share many tastes.Try this as its a super place.

We were so excited to eat at San Carlo for my friends birthday. When we got there we were seated at a table that was next to what can only be described as the waiters chatting area. They had a small table in the centre of the restaurant where they kept spare plates, oils and breads etc. From the moment... More

San Carlo Cicchetti is, in principle, a great concept, especially for those who can never decide on one dish when they go to a restaurant. Instead of a traditional starter, main, dessert format, you can choose a variety of small plates to share. Yes, it adds up and can get expensive, but it's a good prospect for the indecisive foodie.... More

I walked in here via the House of Fraser store entrance for lunch today. In the centre of the tiny restaurant were four members of waiting staff. At least two of these saw me enter, but seemed far too busy chatting to each other to be bothered by customers. The lone female amongst them gave me a withering look, obviously... More

My daughter recommended San Carlo as she had been recently and found the service friendly and efficient. However she was embarrassed by this as some of the service was at best aloof and at worst arrogant bordering on argumentative. We waited a while to order drinks one of which was wrong so we asked for a replacement which wasn't forthcoming... More
