Amazing food and very nice staff, well done! I went to Azzurro last week to complete an "italian restaurand round" across the Great Manchester area, it was a very warm dinner and atmosphere, well done!

Lovely, family friendly and welcoming. Moderately-sized menu with a big focus on fish and other seafood. Still, there's steak and various veggie and meaty options on the menu. Desserts are great too. Beautifully freshly cooked and it's as simple as that. I recommend you go and give it a try. Can get very busy, so book a table and go... More

We had a family dinner at Azzurro Friday evening. Our first visit. The food was delicious, the most amazing pasta and seafood. So fresh and beautifully prepared. Wine choices limited, but good value & quality. Busy place, great atmosphere.

Had a really excellent meal at Azurro on Saturday evening - as always! Food and wine was good and reasonably priced, service was friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed - buzzy but we could still hold a conversation without shouting. How lucky we are to have this restaurant nearby, which is run by someone who really... More

Visited last night having walked past a few times. Really enjoyed the food, was really tasty. Great wine and all in all reasonably priced. The service could have been faster - but if you're not in a hurry, would highly recommend.

Came last Friday, I loved the whole feel of the evening - i had some great gilled sardines and a sea bream for my main, and the others with me loved their choices, we loved the wine, no room for pud, great service, and even when my dad's partner asked for a cushion they found her one. Loved it.

The passion the owner and chef has for this little Italian is always clear to see. High quality food and ingredients are cooked with care and imagination. The mozzarella al forno starter is a personal favourite, as are the steak and various fish specials. I'm allergic to shellfish but friends and family rave about the seafood linguine and blackboard seafood... More

We first visited Azzurro a few years ago at the recommendation of my brother who lived round the corner - Since then we've revisited on numerous occasions, most notably for our wedding anniversary on New Years Eve a couple of years ago. The welcome is warm and friendly, the restaurant itself always immaculately clean, comfortable and inviting, there's a perfect... More

As a resident of north Manchester I was amazed when my boyfriend, who lives one street away, told me he had never visited Azzuro. Any excuse for me to eat there!!! As always the service is excellent, a lovely friendly welcome every time. The man loves fresh fish so he was on his element and couldn't make his mind up,... More

I came here after hunting around for an authentic Italian, somewhere between your bog-standard, paper tablecloth, no-frills establishment and a more high-end, polished, if-a-bit-soulless (and often chain) restaurant. It certainly fits the bill, boasting a single, intimate dining room, with pared down furnishings and a simple menu. I had the linguine marie and a side salad, which were both pleasant... More
