Attentive, pleasant staff. Nice decor, over 2 floors. Busy, yet service was fast. Good wine selection. I had the Xmas pizza which was lovely, followed by a mince pie. Very reasonably priced. Great cocktails.

Went here on a Saturday night as we were visiting the city. Tried to book table in advance but was told to just turn up as they didn't do bookings. Arrived at possibly the busiest time on a Saturday night - just after 7. Told there was a 30 minute wait and was shown to the bar area. The bar... More

We went here for lunch on a Sunday with a friend that is allergic to gluten. We had heard that they prepared gluten-free pizzas but we wanted to make sure and we asked when we arrived. The waitress that received us was really nice and assured us that she would tell the kitchen staff to be really careful to avoid... More

Nice looking restaurant but all in all just average. Food was good without being memorable in any way. Same for the décor. Service was good.

My partner and I popped in for a light Sunday lunch and as always we were not disappointed. We choose from their lunchtime menu and had two pizzas (one Peking Duck and one Chicken Caesar) a glass of house wine and a glass of coke and came away with change from £20. The food was freshly prepared and arrived at... More

Have visited this little gem on a number of occasions. Attentive, friendly staff and a good menu, though not massive and not overly expensive. If you do go, try the tomato garlic bread - it's to die for.

This restaurant is one of our favourite places in Manchester and certainly remains so. We went on a busy Saturday night (table can be reserved if 6 or more) and the atmosphere was excellent (maybe a bit noisy for some), food great & the service couldn't be faulted. Lasagne, pizza's, tiramisu and the other desserts were all excellent.

Not been for a while but pleased that the place is still very good. Great venue with tasty food, reasonably priced and great service. Will aim to return soon.
