“Hidden Gem!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you didn't know about this place, you could easily walk straight past. Situated within an old market arcade at the end of Deansgate, near to the huge tower that hosts the Hilton Hotel. Don Marco Restaurant was quite simply one of the nicest Italian's in Manchester.
The warm welcome and the offer of a large table even though there was only 2 of us was a great start to a lovely evening.
However, it was the food we went for and it didn't disappoint. Both for taste and presentation they got it spot on. We only ordered traditional pizza and pasta dishes on this occasion, but we will return to try the steaks. There was also a varied dessert menu, which we found irresistible. Including a couple of bottles of Merlot, the bill was very reasonable. Thanks for a great time to all that served us.

“Can't ask for more..”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 via mobile

Prompt and polite service and the food is very good. What more can you ask for? Other businesses, especially in the Northern Quarter, should take note. I'd bet most of the people in here are returning visitors.

“Best Italian in Manchester”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

I went in a group of friends to celebrate an opera performance finishing and Don Marco didn't disappoint.

We turned up at 21:30 but our table wasn't ready for 15 minutes. However, the manager was very apologetic and actually offered us all a complimentary drink! The food and wine were incredible.

“I love this place”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

Recently in Manchester for the third time for a yearly conference and my principal reason to travel from Halifax, Canada is just to go to this restaurant. "Oh, just two more hours of lectures and I can go off to Don Marco!" I went every possible night like last year and again exceptional service was provided along with fabulous food. The servers are a real team and do a fabulous job. They treat you like you are a regular and that your presence in their restaurant is valued. Surprisingly, they actually remembered me from prior visits. There are lots of very good reasons to visit Manchester but having the opportunity to again eat at Don Marco tops the list for me!
