staff were great, good menu choice and the wine was good, I had a vegan meal of Bruscetta followed by the Arabiatta and both were delicious, well worth a visit

Very disappointed to find that none of the 10% service charge, automatically applied to the bill, goes to the staff! As it is optional, we got the charge removed, and gave the waiter a separate tip in cash, which I think they deserved. Also, hand dryer in loos didn't work, and had to ask for paper towels. The toilet entrance... More

I ate here with my daughter during a recent visit to Manchester. The food was really good and we would eat here again if we were staying in the area.

My wife and I visited this restaurant pre theatre on a Saturday night. Arriving at 17:30 for an 1800 booking they had a table for us and were turning others away. Good start. So - worth booking if you want a reasonable but unspectacular meal. We had the 2 course pre theatre menu and added some garlic bread to come... More

Visited here for a pre-Theatre meal with a lot of worry. As someone who is not a huge fan of pasta if it's covered in sauce, or cheese in general I was worried I wouldn't find anything to eat. But I was proved wrong! I had Cod with vegetables and it was divine, if not a bit on the small... More

My mother in Law and I were going to see Billy Elliot and had been to this restaurant once before and enjoyed it so we decided to go again. We pre booked our table over the phone but there seemed to be plenty of walk ins too as they do a specific pre theatre menu. It is very reasonably priced... More

Authentic Italian restaurant. Friendly, bustling, good service. We had a pre-theatre menu: Insalata caprese, good in a standard way Leek & potato soup....Not one of my normal favourites and I was happy that the waitress supported smothering it with parmesan....no cheese paring here! Mains were Risotto misto - a fine vegetarian dish Pizza mafiosa - excellent combination of fresh cooked... More

We found this restaurant by accident looking for somewhere to eat before a show. The staff on the door were helpful and found us a table immediately. The food was delicious but unfortunately as it was such a small space I was almost sat on 2 tables as once and felt rather squashed! Would definitely recommend the food but not... More

All was good BUT this restaurant adds a compulsory service charge which the staff DO NOT GET. This I feel is a rip off as the staff asked me did I want to leave a tip. Won't go again.

The fact that this restaurant is located underground adds to the atmosphere. This is helped by the waiters, who make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in. The food is fantastic, i had the pasta special with prawns and it was gorgeous. For dessert i had the chocolate fudge cake which was delicious. Overall a fantastic experience.
