First the positives: The food was excellent and there was certainly a lively atmosphere. Also, one of our party was suddenly taken unwell (nothing to do with the restaurant) and the staff handed it well and managed to cancel the food order. The negatives: The lively atmosphere was verging on a frenzy more akin to a fast food outlet. Our... More

I returned for a 2nd visit (Live in the South East) but was back in Manchester for a meeting, and decided to return - so pleased we did. We had booked a while ago, and good job we did, as it was very busy for a Monday eve (even though its December). We received a welcomed greeting, and seated immediately.... More

I dined here recently with some friends, and overall we were disappointed. We've dined here previously, several times, some years ago, It is a lovely restaurant, with great atmosphere, but the quality of the service and the food is not as it should be, I think they are living off their reputation. It is an up market quality Italian restaurant,... More

It is not unusual to see sports stars, actors, actresses, singers or a sprinkling of people from one of the many reality tv shows, dining at San Carlo. This is all well and good but what about the food, service, decor and ambience? They, too, have star quality. Everyone is treated well, prices are no more than most restaurants in... More

Started with a cocktail at the bar, delicious! The food choice is excellent, and delicious. It's a big place and the ambience is good. I think we got a dodgy host, he didn't really know when to stop talking, or singing! Plus he poured our wine out to the next table, and we never had it replaced, just some limoncello... More

I have eaten at most of the San Carlo restaurants in England and can only say that this lived up to all the others. Food, service, staff all 5 star. Great place to eat.

Description
Set in the hub of Manchester's King Street West, this brand-new concept restaurant is the feather in the cap of the San Carlo group's award-winning chain of Italian restaurants. A departure from the regular San Carlo formula, the dining room boasts an open, light and airy all-white space with red accents, and a stylish bar and lounge area perfect for pre/post dinner drinks. The menu is an lavish celebration of traditional seafood-led Italian cuisine, and favourite dishes include the Scallops San Carlo; Tagliatelle Monte Carlo – pasta served with sautéed shallots and diced monkfish in a creamy tomato and white wine sauce; and the traditional spiced Italian sausages cooked with Borlotti beans.
