In Manchester for just one day, and desperately in search of a place to have lunch, I walked into this place. I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was extremely friendly, and the food was authentic and really good. I tried a Tuscany soup, it was simply delicious! Prices are fair. I would recommend it!

I've been here numerous times and always had excellent food and more importantly had a fun time ! I've been to the main one across the road but I think the food is much better here

We visited for breakfast on a Sunday after an overnight stay in Manchester to see a concert. Lovely authentic surroundings and a nice relaxed atmosphere, perfect for Sunday breakfast. We had eggs Benedictine and scramble eggs on toast, both were delicious and just the right portion size. Staff were all very friendly and efficient and it was reasonably priced. Will... More

Great idea to have Italian tapas - gives the diner the chance to try many different flavours - We had 13 dishes between 4 and it was plenty- Every dish was very tasty - Good service - The dishes could of been spaced out a little but well recommended .

We have been visiting San Carlo for a number of years but our last visit a couple of weeks ago for my wife's birthday was really disappointing, there were four of us and one of the party order 3 items on the menu and none of them were available, we couldn't remember one item not being available in the past...

Me and my friend went here and we've never been before. Wow the food was absolutely gorgeous especially seabass. The service was very good as well (the waiters were extremely handsome especially one of them) wine was nice (we had the house one) £77 for 6 dishes and drinks and starters and dessert and coffee for 1 not bad really....

Dined here this evening for the first time. It wasn't busy but there were plenty members of staff around. This is a tapas style Italian and they recommend 5/6 dishes between 2 people. The beauty of this is that you don't order all at once, you order when you finish what you are eating. There were 7 of us dining... More
