Had dinner the other evening with family.The warm welcome from the owner and staff was genuine. The restaurant is well laid out and has a nice feel. My eight year old grandson was fussed over and felt like a real VIP. Starters of Parma ham and garlic bread to share were delicious. The main courses of dover sole (one of the best I have ever tasted) chicken, pizza's and pasta were all exemplary and shows a kitchen that is confident and knows exactly what it is doing. Wines were chosen by the owner and were spot on and compared to London an absolute bargain.
A few reviews have been unfair in my view. Yes it gets its fair share of footballers and celebrities (even the prime minister and chancellor dined here recently). But Puccinis is about the food that is why it is busy even on a midweek night. Given its location in a Swinton shopping centre 15 minute drive out of the city centre it has to be doing something right and that is great service and food.
If you are staying in Manchester hop in a cab and give it a try you will be glad you did!
