My friend had booked a table here on a recommendation. We were really impressed with this place. The food and service were excellent. This is a lovely vibrant restaurant bustling with activity. The staff were very efficient and friendly and the gentlemen at the front desk a real character who made our evening. My husband and I shared the italian... More

My Husband and I have been here a few times and we love it. The place is warm, friendly, and very inviting. The staff are friendly and very attentive too. Service is fast. The Maitre D' is very observant on what's going on and very friendly, he always makes sure to stop at every table and speak with the customers.... More

Dropped daughter off at o2 Ritz for a concert and needed somewhere nearby to while away the evening. Service location and food were all fantastic and the choice and prices exceeded our local Italian. ,

Looking for somewhere to eat before going to the theatre, came across this place. Very friendly welcome, and polite efficient staff. Although it was busy, the service was good. At £12.95 per head for 2 courses, it was very good value. The choice is good, but the starter and mains my wife had were much better than the choices I... More

Great food, great atmosphere, lots of choice on the really good value (£12.95) pre-theatre menu. 3 minute walk from the Palace theatre.

We booked a meal between Christmas and New Year as we were going to a concert at the Bridgewater Hall. We booked for 5.30pm. The concert started at 7.30pm. Firstly, they had written the booking down on the wrong day. Eventually they found it and we were seated. We ordered drinks but nobody came to take our order so in... More

First visit here on a trip to the theatre with Mum... what a fabulous find! Managed to snag the last seats in the restaurant and was treated to an excellent 2 course meal for only £13, which is a special pre theatre offer. We enjoyed a huge starter of garlic mushrooms, which were piping hot and followed this with a... More

Booked by phone beforehand, but when arrived booking was a bit messed up if they had it. Did get a table though. It was busy. Meal was acceptable but not outstanding but for £12.99 OK. The price you see is not what you pay they add 10% to the bill. No reference of this is made on the website or... More

This is our first choice restaurant when in Manchester. NY Eve matinee at the Palace and table booked for 7pm. Place packed as usual but our table was ready. Service was slick but not rushed. Olive and bread starter was nice and the mushrooms in garlic and white wine was almost a main size portion! Mains of Venison and creamy... More

We went after a theatre matinee so still got the fixed price menu on offer before 6.45pm. We were in the back room which isn't as nice as the main room but the staff we nice and friendly. The choice was ok and covered all 6 of us including a child, starters were a little limited but the usual options... More
