“Lovely restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

During a recent weekend in Manchester with my wife we visited the restaurant and had a wonderful meal. We had chosen the restaurant from the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed.

We had not booked a table but the Maitre'D was very friendly and managed to find us a table within 5 minutes. The table we were given was in the main part of the restaurant, as opposed to the outside section which had a lovely atmosphere and seemed to be the preferred section to be in, and was nice and quite.

The food was beautiful and the service form the waiters and waitress was excellent, they always seemed to be there to help without being too intrusive. The desserts were fantastic and it is a long time since I have had profiteroles that good. We will definitely be back the next time we are in Manchester although we may book a table outside next time.

“First visit, will return”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Never heard about this place before having a look at TA for an Italian in Mcr. We have visited a well known other Italian not far from here a couple of times before and, in my personal opinion, unless you play for either of the regional sports teams or pull up in a £100k car, don't bother! Loved this place, quirky, authentic, good prompt service and food to match, even with witnessing a 'runner' on the night. Really enjoyed everything about the night and is now our preferred Italian in the city centre. New to Mcr, give SC a very wide berth and go here. Hope to revisit soon, we'll done everybody working last Saturday.

“A good choice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Excellent location and ambience. Faultless service. Extensive, imaginative menu. Good value at an average of around £30 per head including drinks. Recommended.

“Fantastic night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Went here for my girlfriends birthday 30/08/13. The service was amazing they gave us a table in the terrace section. The lighting, atmosphere, food and service everything about this restaurant is impeccable.
I have been to many very expensive eateries in Manchester, London and abroad and I can honestly say Don Marco has hit the nail on the head. Try it you won't be disappointed.
