Good atmosphere, great food

This Italian, on the ground floor of Kendalls, is bright and cheery. It's the "small sharing plates" idea ; you order maybe 5 or 6 between two, and the kitchen sends them out in a seemingly random order. We went pre - theatre : service was excellent, the staff were keen to stop us over - ordering... read more

A brilliant atmoshere, with a feeling of south Italy in the heart of Manchester. We ate at the bar with a perfect service and to top it off a very pleasant conversation with Leonardo, the chef.We will be looking forward yet again for another meal and with luck to encounter our friend Leonardo.

We had lunch here as we'd passed it many times and never tried it, and weren't disappointed as it proved to be very good! I had the risotto with scallops and my wife had the prawn sealed - both delicious, but not overly generous portions, which isn't bad at lunch time. My wife had the lemon tart whilst I had... More

I was looking for a very nice upmarket restaurant to host a business brunch for 14 employees, not an easy task in Manchester. Eventually after lots of searching and telephone calls I found this restaurant on line, it wouldn't of been my first choice to be honest. We all arrived at 11am and our table was ready for us. We...

Had a lovely lunch here today, service was a little ropey at first and took an age to order food and drink. However after that, everything was a delight. Food was served well and warm, every course was lovely, great taste and texture, flavours complemented each other perfectly.

The breakfast here was decidedly underwhelming. The toast was once a full slice, yet carved into a thin leaf shape. I wanted the rest of the slice! And it was cold. Stone cold. The beans were cold. The sausage tasted raw. The black pudding was dry and leathery. The poached egg was raw and watery. The only good thing about... More

I went to the effort of making a tripadvisor account purely to warn people of the terrible ignorant service that accompanies this restaurant. Me and my business partner were disgusted by the waiters who were extremely rude. The place was filled past capacity to the point where the waiters were barging into us the whole time when serving other customers.... More

Me and my fianceé decided to try San Carlo Cicchetti in Manchester and were gravely disappointed with our experience. I ordered the Carpoccio & Tartare which much to my disappointment was bland and not as described on the menu. My fianceé asked for the bolognese without mushrooms due to an allergy, the waiter was extremely rude when we explained and... More
