We ate at San Carlo on a Tuesday night, as we were staying at the Marriott prior to our holiday. What a gem it is, tucked away at the rear of the hotel. We started with Antipasti Meats for 2, and then I had the Sea Bass, and my wife had a Monkish Pasta. All very tasty. Washed down with a bottle of wine, Limoncello, Creme Brulee, and coffee, it made for an excellent meal.

My husband and I were enjoying a weekend away in the Marriott Hotel attached to this restaurant and rather than eat in the hotel restaurant we decided to eat here and we were not disappointed.

It seemed to be a busy happening place considering, it was not in the centre of Manchester, for which lots of celebrities had previously visited.

We were greeted with a warm professional welcome and were asked if we wanted to go straight to our table or have a drink first, even though we were 5 mins late for our reservation. We opted for a pre-dinner cocktail which was lovely.

The actual restaurant was busy, but we still felt we had a lovely table not on top of other diners which was nice, they had lots of intimate booths, which in hindsight I wished we had asked it we could sit in one of them, only for the experience!

I could not fault the service, the food or the atmosphere it was all lovely and friendly. Great Italian restaurant, although it was not a cheap experience, the whole package was definitely good value. Highly recommended.

I have only ever been to San Carlo in Manchester, so when my friend suggested we have a long awaited catch up at San Carlo in Hale Barns (as he dines there regularly), I was looking forward to it.
The service was excellent and the staff were attentive. The restaurant was busy and had a good atmosphere but the food was just not good enough.
My friend had a starter... king prawns in a sauce that was just bland & he left most of the dish. We both ordered a fillet steak in a butter sauce, it was well done rather than medium as we had requested and the 'sauce' with over '30' ingredients added to the butter was just a dribble over the steak! A real let down.
Really couldn't fault the service but I'm afraid I won't be running back.

As usual, fantastic service......extremely pleasant waiters........and fabulous food. Couldn't fault it. As there were 10 of us dining, had a round table, which was good. If you want to sample the Sunday lunch....they only serve that until 5 p.m., would advise you book well in advance. Our table was booked for 5.30 p.m., as they were fully booked before that time.
