This was our second visit this year. We sat outside under the heaters and enjoyed another excellent meal. This restaurant offers a good choice of Italian staples and provides high quality food at very reasonable prices. The antipasto Don Marco is a great starter for two.

My wife and I went here last Thursday and had a lovely meal. 2 Courses a bottle of wine. Service was good the waiter extemely friendly and the food was spot on. Its not expensive, the atmosphere is good, especially sat outside in the alleyway. The heating they have makes it very cosy and the setting is great.

After a disastrous visit to San Carlos where we actually didn't even eat any food due to the rudeness of the manager, we went back to our old favourite, Don Marcos. Marco always makes a point of welcoming us, our table was ready on arrival, food superb. I had mentioned that this was a belated birthday meal (see above) and were brought a lovely tiramisu with a candle in it! The atmosphere is always good here, especially in the alley and we have never been disappointed. San Carlos or Don Marcos? No competition. Don Marcos if you like good food, excellent service, polite waiting staff, nice atmosphere. San Carlos if you prefer the exact opposite of those things!

We have read the reviews and visited on a sunday afternoon, expecting something above the normal Italian, came away satisfied but not buzzing! just you normal Italian

The menu is slightly limited as far as im concerned, and opted for a pasta starter , was OK, my other half had a mushroom and goats cheese starter which was nice, but overpriced at £6 for 2 mushrooms on a piece of bread, with little chuck of goats cheese on top.

Mains she had pasta which was very good, I had rib eye, which was a nice piece of steak with a bland sauce, had this as i refused to pay £15 for a chicken dish, veggies that came with it were very average. Other items such as fillet Rossini are way over priced at £23

a big plus was the garlic bread and pizza which were top class!!!!!! which my 4 year old loved (me too!)

Other little niggles were the table behind us when they got there bill were offered a liquer on the house, but us despite spending over £85 for 2 of us and a 4 year old didnt deserve the same treatment.

Overall a good meal;, but not great - a bit on the pricey side, service good but nothing special and a menu that is missing a bit somewhere, would go back - but wont be racing there

If you like good Italian, check out Leo's in Monton/Eccles, better menu, better food, better ambiance and £30 cheaper for what we had
