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.

“Great Lunchtime Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Lunch is always great here. The food is good, but the atmosphere wins it for me everytime!
Particularly fond of the little deep fried dough strips they serve with coffee - delicious!

“Poor service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Ate here recently with my husband following the restaurant's refurbishment.

The food was ok but the service was awful, very slow and we had to chase it up with no apology. Had problems with the service in the past but thought we would give it another chance. However I won't be dining here again after the last experience.
