Visited before going to watch the Lion King. The restaurant was busy as you'd expect on a Saturday on the run up to Christmas. However the food and the service was good. Would visit again before going to the theatre

We waited over an hour between our starter and main course and we’re almost late for the theatre. Restaurant not that busy but I had to ask repeatedly for our mains. The food was nice but then when we got the bill we’d been overcharged...by £40, it took three attempts to get it right even though we’d had the set menu and only four drinks. The waiter (a big guy) who sorted the bill was extremely rude even though we’d been very polite. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. On the plus side, the rest of the staff were excellent.More

Really underwhelming experience from start to finish. Pricing does not reflect the quality provided. Definitely overpriced, food bland and reheated in a microwave.

I have visited this restaurant a few times with friends when on a theatre trip. The food is beautiful and the pre theatre dinner is good value at £22.50 for two courses. However this visit was disappointing for a few reasons. We were seated with...about an inch between the table next to us - a family of 4 with no table manners whatsoever - we were so close that it was like being sat eating with them. Not the restaurant’s fault they were so unpleasant but if we hadn’t been packed in like sardines we wouldn’t have had to sit so close and endure their company. It took ages for our drinks to arrive - at least half an hour from arrival - and the same can be said for our food. Other tables who ordered after us were served first. I had to ask twice for some water with our meal, and again had to ask twice for our bill. And for the second time we were overcharged. For some reason you don’t get a printed itemised bill, but a handwritten one which lumps everything together so you can’t see a breakdown. Last time I was overcharged over £20 and had to ring the restaurant the day after to get it refunded, and this time it was £6 - not as much but not the point. I really felt the service and the overcharging spoiled this visit. It’s s shame as I like this place but I’ve been really put off now. If you visit just make sure you check your bill.More

Took grandaughter for meal before theatre, given pre theatre menu 22.50 each. The food arrived I ordered mushroom 🍄 with garlic butter, they were from a tin, tasteless, hardly any garlic piece of bread no butter. Chicken wings were ok. Small portion 4. Then I...asked for pizza no chillie I requested,when it came looked nice, so full of chilli ate 2 slices mouth was on fire, was not good.Other meal was salmon undercooked and covered in inedible tomato 🍅 sauce, was ok but bit raw. Asked for bill, twice so went to pay, the manager snatched my card and used on card machine himself quite unpleasant as I didn't even complain just asked for bill. Would definitely not recommend this place awful. Had meal 1 lemonade and glass wine 66. Stay away waste of cash and not good food.More

What can I say - an incredible little find. From the moment we walked in we were looked after by the owner. He was so friendly and really funny. He made us feel at ease and recommended some incredible food. The garlic bread was the...best I’ve ever tasted! In fact all the food was just out of this world. By far my favourite restaurant. A must visit if in ManchesterMore

Fantastic food and value We visited for a friend’s birthday and food was excellent as was the service. The restaurant gave our friend a free drink and a free garlic bread starter. Service was second to none. An excellent independent that needs your support

Booked at Giorgio for Sunday evening. Felt welcome on arrival, the staff were very friendly. The restaurant was quiet, but it was a Sunday after all. Food was really good, pizzas,well cooked, tasty and large. Staff were attentive but not overpowering. Would definitely eat at...Giorgio's again.More

Service was a bit sporadic, no checkback. If there was one we would have sent a dish back. Spaghetti bolognaise was very nice, though slightly bland. Homemade soups were lovely. Lasagne was dry and a bit tasteless, possibly microwaved as was steaming hot, but cooler...in places. Diet coke serving was very small.More

Came here before the theatre. After reading the reviews of other Italians nearby, which were not very good, we came here. This use to be one of my favs when I was a student, 20 years ago, and although it’s decor has changed since then,...it has still retained that warmth and local vibe which you don’t always get in city centre restaurants. Service was lovely and made to feel very welcome straight away. Food was lovely too. Would def come again.More

I was offered only the pre theatre menu. I don't think the full menu was available (it certainly wasn't presented to us).
