I am never disappointed with lunch at Arighi Bianchi's cafe, Macclesfield. The service is excellent, the staff always attentive, friendly and polite and happy to accomodate my little idiosyncrasies. The quality of every dish is fantastic, I especially would recommend the wraps for lunch which come with a large bowl of lovely chunky chips (if you are not too hungry... More

Excellence is standard here. Busy and bustling especially in the upstairs area and the staff are attentive but not intrusive. I favour the old fashioned values of this place - the customer comes first and nothing is too much trouble. The place has quirky eccentricity throughout the wonderful store and the cafe bar is no exception. Fresh and delicious the... More

Have dined here on a few occasions and always found the staff and the food to be of top quality. It may not be the cheapest bite in town but you get what you pay for in good surroundings served by very attentive staff. Would recommend to anyone, will be back.

It's called a cafe but the food is restaurant quality. The atmosphere is bustling and friendly. Parking is plentiful. The Cafe is a great addition to a fabulous furniture store with an enviable reputation for customer service and range. I would recommend both strongly.

The location is inside a very large furniture store & just the job for some refreshment after shopping. However the food is expensive for what it is without anything being outstanding for the price.

Went to the cafe whilst visiting the shop, a coffee was ordered which arrived in a ridiculously small cup for the price of the coffee that was paid, resembled that of the poor quality cups you find in cheap hotel suites. Investing in nicer and larger cups would be a great idea. Secondly, the price of the cake is absolutely... More

We love Arighi Bianchi for it's quirky layout and fab furniture but it has a little secret... Nestling at the very top of the building is a fab cafe bar... As you'd expect it's chic and stylish but it does so much more than serve coffee to weary shoppers! Lunch on Sunday was Crostini for my better half and a... More

Returned after a nine year absence since we moved from Wilmsow to France and now Norwich. Great to return and enjoy a very tasty lunch. We both chose wraps and chunky chips. Very generous portions so sadly no room for a cake!! So, top food, friendly service and a relaxed atmosphere. HIghly recommended. Great to eat before walking the store!... More

It is so nice to welcome you back after a 9 year absence to the store and I am very glad to hear that you enjoyed the experience. I will certainly pass on your comments to the chef - He does put on 6 or 7 "specials" daily, many of which are vegetarian, but your feedback is very much noted.... More
