This is a nice Italian with a good atmosphere. I've eaten at better Italians, but the food is okay and reasonably priced for Manchester. Would visit again.

Good but not exceptional. Waiting on staff kept changing & service a little casual. Wine by the glass absurdly expensive for an average Rose'.£14 for 1.75 ml ! Disappointed after previous superior experiences. Are standards slipping ?

Rude staff, who have a chip on their shoulder. Indeed, they congregate out the back (near Mulligans pub) to smoke cigarettes - always turns me off a place when I see that. Food - not the greatest. It has a good reputation, but the place...More

Set in the hub of Manchester's King Street West, this brand-new concept restaurant is the feather in the cap of the San Carlo group's award-winning chain of Italian restaurants. A departure from the regular San Carlo formula, the dining room boasts an open, light and airy all-white space with red accents, and a stylish bar and lounge area perfect for pre/post dinner drinks. The menu is an lavish celebration of traditional seafood-led Italian cuisine, and favourite dishes include the Scallops San Carlo; Tagliatelle Monte Carlo – pasta served with sautéed shallots and diced monkfish in a creamy tomato and white wine sauce; and the traditional spiced Italian sausages cooked with Borlotti beans.
