The larger, warehouse-y Ancoats spin-off to the popular Altrincham original is “an exceptionally good place for dinner”, based on “the freshest, tastiest pasta you can imagine” and wine “served in delightful ceramic jugs”“great fun” by all accounts.

“Extremely authentic pasta from Puglia” (“you smell how fantastic it is going to be”) has been successfully duplicated from the Altrincham original at this larger Ancoats spin-off, where “the wine is great value, served in painted jugs”. “The minus has got to be the huge warehouse-y, new-build space, which is of a type that’s abundant in Manchester, but cold and samey”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
