I just had lunch at San Carlo Cicchetti. It is ideally located in House of Fraser in downtown Manchester. It is not to be confused with San Carlo, across the street. The latter serves traditional Italian meals (with a starter, main, etc). This one on the other hand serves its dishes in small portions (tapas style). It's ideal for lunch... More

Myself and my husband ate here on a Monday afternoon, the surroundings were lovely, the service was impeccable and the food was delicious, it is all Tapas style food, so it comes out as and when it is ready, wasn't as expensive as we thought, although a glass of large Rose is £6.50. Will definitely return and recommend.

Haven't been here for a few months until last night,always had great food and service. The food was truly outstanding last night, pasta cooked to perfection and my wife said the fillet steak was the nicest she had ever eaten. Cocktail of the month was clementine with limoncello foam,absolutely delicious. Service was spot on and had a fantastic evening.

This place is fabulous but the staff are questionable, the food is consistently great. I do visit here very regular but have never been happy with the staff, they should give the chef a pay rise as his food is genius. The lunch and evening menu are also fantastic and it's well worth a visit. Reasonable prices also

We had a table for 6 last night, two English, two Scots and two Spanish. We asked our waiter if the had gluten free pasta and his arrogant tone was inflicted on us for the first time. They had gf pasta but it would take 30 minutes to cook as it had to be done in a seperate pot! No... More

Very atmospheric and great food. Went for lunch and we chose three dishes between the two of us (they recommend 4 - 6, but we weren't very hungry). Typical Italian service which was efficient and friendly. Would definitely recommend.

An Italian taps restaurant. Good food, excellent service - I love it here. It lacks a little in terms of the menu though, Fumo offers a far greater deal in that respect.

Great lunch with a friend, but, we were shocked when the waiter mistakenly served a meatball dish to our neighbour's table...he came back a couple of minutes later, realising his mistake, and removed a meatball from a diner's plate, popped it back in it's dish, then served it to another table. Personally, I don't think that is professional, nor is... More

I cannot rate this restaurant enough, visited with my friends here for a birthday meal, staff were pleasant and attentive, atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming, although the place was full we waited no more than 10 minutes after our booking time to be seated, although we could have happily stayed drinking at the cool bar awaiting the table
