Ended up here as San Carlo was full. Food and service was good quality and staff friendly. Prices reasonable but we left disappointed as we felt ripped off due to misinformation from waiter who mis-sold our sons ice cream with description of '3 small scoops'. It turned up and all 4 of us didn't finish 1 portion. We did comment... More

A simple dish of risotto marinara. Lovely atmosphere and service. Why, dio mio. are so many clients complaining about English Breakfast here? An English breakfast is on the wane, and why on earth go to an Italian restaurant for one? In Italy, France, Spain etc. the custom is to have a simple breakfast - coffee + a croissant. Porridge, ham+eggs... More

Haven't been here for a while but decided to have lunch while out with my daughter. Busy, bustling, lovely decor and staff charming. This is not a cheap place for lunch, though we did have a lot and it was all beautiful, bar one dish but that was because we tried something we'd not had before, but it wasn't for... More

As a huge fan of the San Carlo group I've visited all their restaurants in Manchester and whilst I was a loyal patron of the main San Carlo restaurant when this particular one opened I have to say I felt their level of cooking and service was that bit more refined and overall better. Fumo is also that grade above... More

Fantastic atmosphere, decor great, very comfortable. Staff were in a different league to other restaurants, nothing was too much trouble, food was wonderful, can't fault it in any way, good wine.

I'm a regular here for what is possibly the best breakfast in Manchester but sadly the standard of food and service appears to be slipping. Firstly, being a regular at Cicchetti since it opened and frequenting all the San Carlo chain, appeared to count for nothing two weeks ago when I arrived at 11.45, but was refused breakfast because they...

Called in after a Saturday afternoon shopping with my daughter. The place seemed busy but we managed to get a table. Food and service both excellent. Would definitely recommend the lobster risotto & the prawn & monkfish skewers both delicious. We ordered 5 dishes between the 2 of us & it was plenty.

Our food was cold. It was immediately sent back and when it was replaced it was again cold. Staff need a change in attitude and they need to review their whole approach to customers. It beggars belief when staff argue with dissatisfied customers and offer poor excuses about being busy. This is supposed to be a restaurant!!! It is, according... More

Visited at lunch on Monday, it was a bit busy but we were seated quickly. Staff very polite and nice, good and tasty food - we had a selection of 5 dishes + bread + 2 desserts. Burrata and black ravioli highly recommended. The only let down was the monkfish and prawn skewer - flavourless with no seasoning at all.... More
