Description: Set in the hub of Manchester's King Street West, this brand-new concept restaurant is the feather in the cap of the San Carlo group's award-winning chain of Italian restaurants. A departure from the regular San Carlo formula, the dining room boasts an open, light and airy all-white space with red accents, and a stylish bar and lounge area perfect for pre/post dinner drinks. The menu is an lavish celebration of traditional seafood-led Italian cuisine, and favourite dishes include the Scallops San Carlo; Tagliatelle Monte Carlo – pasta served with sautéed shallots and diced monkfish in a creamy tomato and white wine sauce; and the traditional spiced Italian sausages cooked with Borlotti beans.

im a huge fan of its sister restaurant Chichettis but on a recent return to this manchester original San Carlos i was left wanting. Admittedly there is nothing particularly bad about this place but is way too generic to match the other of the moment italian restaurants in london. It is too bright and ostentatious with the wag brigade and... More

My boyfriend and I booked a meal to celebrate our anniversary and frankly I was utterly disgusted with the level of service your establishment offered. We booked a table for half 5 as we had been enjoying cocktails earlier in the day. We arrived ahead of time and enjoyed a drink at the bar, all nice enough so far. When... More

Visited here on Friday 19th September at 8pm. The restaurant is obviously very popular as it was packed when we arrived just before 8pm. We were seated straightaway as we had a booking, and were given a table at the back of the restaurant which I was grateful for as it was so noisy, and it wasn't as busy at... More

This really is a beautiful Restaurant but my god what a let down once you are in there. I personally have been in charge of several high end Italian Restaurants and while like I said it is beautiful in its decor the service is atrocious. I personally had to ask for my drink three times, this may seem picky but... More

We arrived at 450 and were told to take a seat at bar as table not ready. We were still at the bar at 545pm and nobody bothered to come and aplogise let alone offer... More

Went for a meal tonight at San Carlo, very busy, great atmosphere but just like a cafe. One in, one out, pack as many in as you can. Food was good to be fair but service average, just very rushed and crammed into small space. If you want to just eat and go this is fine but not worthy of... More

My partner and I visited for the first time last weekend for a rare date night without the baby. I'd always wanted to come and after reading a few reviews was a little hesitant due to 'bad service'. However, I am pleased to say this definitely wasn't the case on our visit. The food was outstanding. The best meal I... More

I absolutely love this restaurant, everytime I want to eat out in Manchester I always think of San Carlo's. The staff are extremely friendly and look after you while you're eating there. The menu is fantastic, so much to choose from and everytime I've enjoyed every meal I've had there. There is also a lovely little bar you can either... More

Shopping in Selfridges can make you thirsty. . So we headed upstairs for a drink. I had never been before. We were sat down promptly, we opted for the bar and started on the pornstar martinis. . This pornstar was the best I have had this year. . It was missing the passion fruit stuffing which was a shame however... More

Came here 8th September for friends birthday during the day for lunch. We were 3 ladies and had booked a table for 1pm which we were glad of because it seemed very busy. We were all spoilt for choice on the menu and need to go back so I can try another lovely dish, in the end I ordered the... More
