Nice place and good food. Only downside is like the other restaurant in manchester, the tables are too close together,so much so that I struggled to squeeze past the tables next to us and I'm a size 8! I also felt uncomfortable as anything I said could be overheard by the people sitting at the neighbouring tables. Like the other... More

I have been to San Carlo Cicchetti close to 10 times! yes that is a lot but wow the food is great. Unlike the San Carlo restaurant which I have visited in a number of cities, you will experience the same arrogant, rushed service... Stepping into Chicchetti is nothing like its sister restaurant which is what I love, still good... More

Shopping in Kendal's and longing for a sit-down, we thought we would try this little restaurant. You cannot book, so we were lucky to get a table straight away. Very prompt service, a little on the impersonal side, but very efficient. It was explained to us about the "small plate". My elderly mother was totally happy, because she can only... More

Party of 11. What great ambience. This is a small restaurant that is big in everything else. Food, service and timing was just perfect. The manager took an interest in his team, they were very pleasant and helpful. We had various dishes to share, which really is great way to try different dishes. I couldn't fault anything. Rarely have I... More

Food came in parts. Chips were ordered and came at the end of the meal. Managers have no interest in resolving the issue. Utterly appaulling

Used this place for breakfast before and it's great so went back for dinner with 3 colleagues. The chat is great with the service being very Italian as well as the food. Just across the road from big brother San Carlo it is effectively a "small plate" restaurant where you order a couple of things and see if it's enough!... More

We ended up at San Carlo Cicchetti on a Friday night after attempting to go to San Carlo (with a reservation), which was simply too busy with unpleasant hostesses. The atmosphere at Cicchetti was quite pleasant, with the right amount of energy/noise and a tasteful decor. We ordered multiple shared plates, such as the crab cake, truffle ravioli, calamari, pasta... More

I've been meaning to leave a review for Cicchetti for quite some time now. I love this place and have never had a bad meal yet. Went for a a pre-match meal and drink with my brother and considering what ensued later was the highlight of the night! Cesare is a fantastic Front of House/Maitre D and all round great... More

I visited San Carlos in Manchester with 3 colleagues for a business meeting and breakfast. They have a wonderful menu with a wide range of reasonably priced options. The food was good. One of my colleagues ordered the English breakfast and it was a very large portion of all the things we love about a traditional English breakfast. The pastries... More
