A splendidly friendly, superbly reliable, culinarily excellent Italian restaurant whose popularity is testimony to its quality. The menu offers much choice, and always pleases. Service is attentive and efficient and always friendly. No wonder the Prime Minister ate there!

We have been here twice before and our experience was similar. The decor is ok but I've noted over time more and more tables creeping in. Although the atmosphere has always been busy I didn't mind it but it feels extremely cramped a little cheapened. We arrived on time for a prebooked table of 9 on a Saturday night. Despite... More

My first time here. Great food. Friendly staff. Very busy but still good service . The amount of customers shows the standard of restraunt. Was told is pricey but found it to be very reasonable great value considering how nice the food was. Will be going back

The ladies went for the Sea Bass, again cooked to perfection We are not dessert people but our waiter Naceur prepared a... More

Shopping in Swinton decided we'd pop into Puccini's for lunch. We have been many times in the past in the evening for special occasions with friends and family and it has never disappointed. The atmosphere is still as good at lunchtime and made an impromtu visit into a special occasion. Food excellent as usual and the friendly welcome and service... More

Had my first experience of Puccinis this weekend & it will certainly not be my last. The menu is extensive to suit any taste, I had the need medallions in a wild mushroom & wholegrain mustard sauce and must say it was the most tender beef I have ever ate in a restaurant! All mains come with fresh vegetables and... More

I have been going to this restaurant for many years, from as a couple to a large party of people, you are greeted at the door like a long lost friend, the atmosphere is amazing a true vibe is felt. Drink orders were taken immediately and we were seated within 10 mins of arriving, as usual for a saturday night... More

Just had an amazing meal here. Sunday evening and the place was heaving which says a lot. Extensive menu with plenty of choice, staff were attentive and the service spot on- they were on the ball throughout the meal and knew exactly when to ask if we wanted more drinks, you could see all the waiters monitoring our glasses.

4 of us dined here on a sat eve, the place was packed what a great atmosphere, people laughing, singing happy birthday, glasses clinking, just a fab atmosphere. The food came quickly, we all ordered different and every dish was perfect. The ribs are the best I have ever had. My husband had a steak that just melted in the... More

As Puccini's has been time after time, tonight's meal was tasty, fresh, attentive and accomodating. Michele and staff never fail to impress whilst making you feel like one of the family. Excellent 5*
