Italian Restaurants in Manchester
1. San Carlo Italian restaurant in Manchester 40 King Street West - M3
“Big and always buzzy, San Carlo sails on as ever” – this traditional city-centre Italian is “a celeb-magnet” in these parts, and its “bustling”, see-and-be-seen style carries much of its appeal. The food is by no means incidental though – “choose well from the menu, and it can be excellent, and it’s never less than pretty good”. Service takes different people different ways: one or two reports say service can “leave much to be desired” seeming “over-attentive” or even “insincere”, but most reports are of professional staff with “great front of house skills” (“helpful and always on hand”).
2. San Carlo Cicchetti Italian restaurant in Manchester 42 King Street West - M3
On the ground floor of Kendal’s (and with its own entrance), this “light and bright and airy” city-centre branch of San Carlo’s more informal brand is “always packed”, thanks to its “terrific, rip-roaring Italian small plates for sharing”; good for breakfasts too.
3. Rosso Italian restaurant in Manchester 43 Spring Gardens - M2
Nearing its first decade, Rio Ferdinand’s glitzy Italian-and-cocktails venue, in a smartly converted grade II listed building, is as big a hit with its foodie fans as it is with local celebs, winning solid ratings all-round.
