Today at Cafe Bar Arighi (where the food is always lovely and the service always exemplary), I was lucky enough to sample two of the best cheesecakes I have ever tasted, created and served by the talented and charming James. Gorgeous! Thank you, what a great start to the weekend.

Have really liked this place for years but hadn't been for a while as I hadn't enjoyed last couple of visits. Thought I might return though as menus change regularly.. What a difference. Not for the better. Gone are the constant coffee top ups. Gone are the bowls of vibrant side salad with strawberry melon pineapple grated carrot and breadsticks... More

Super food, great service, really accommodating for our party - it was a little special occasion lunch with a few friends and they were more than happy for us to bring a couple of balloons and a bit of table confetti! Couldn't fault it to be honest today!! Thanks a lot!! 😁👍

My wife has been here regularly and now I got an invite for once! I certainly want to return. the sea bream on a prawn and crab risotto was excellent. good size portions. no room for a pudding but next time... Attentive and friendly staff. It deserves its top position in Macclesfield

We popped in on the off chance that we could get a table. The cafe was busy and the staff very helpful and friendly. We had the lamb and all the trimmings and fish and chips. Both were excellent. We were too full for dessert but they kindly packaged up a couple of slices of cake. We noticed other guests... More

We always go here for breakfast, a good choice of dishes & all of them are top quality & taste amazing! Would definately recommend for breakfast/brunch and I'm sure they're main meals would be equally as good but we haven't had chance to experience them yet.
