This restaurant was chosen on impulse as we were shopping in the area. 3 course lunch provided ample choice, food and wine all excellent. Waiters very friendly and provided very good service. Would definitely recommend.

I went yesterday with a friend for lunch and was impressed with everything. We both chose from the lunch menu, two courses for £9.90 and a bottle of the house white wine £15.90. The food and service were excellent. However, it was sad to see that there weren't many other diners, this being the main reason why I'm writing this review. Give it a try - you won't be disappointed and it would be such a pity if this restaurant closes due to lack of business. City centre Manchester cannot afford to lose an authentic Italian Restaurant of this calibre.

My friend chose Al Bacio for lunch having read the many positive reviews and we were not disappointed. There was a lovely laid-back atmosphere with pleasant background music; we received a very friendly welcome from the staff whose service was prompt and attentive. The decor is stylish and the table dressing smart and professional. Someone checked frequently to see if all was well and we were satisfied with the meal. We ordered from the lunch menu - 2 courses for us-which was served without delay. The presentation and quality of the food was absolutely first class. I didn't want it to end! The wine was excellent also. We didn't have desserts but there was a wide choice on the menu.
A real Italian experience!

Tucked away in a back street in the town centre is this Italian restaurant and thanks to a Living Social voucher we found it
The staff are very friendly and welcoming the place is spotless with crisp white tablecloths and real napkins
The service was very good as was the food and nothing was too much trouble
This was proper freshly made food and was a delight

We had lunch here on a Living Social voucher. The food was incredible. It was one of the best Italian meals I have ever had. The service was great too. Really friendly staff who can't do enough for you.

Well definitely be back!
