Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Waited 30 minutes to be served half cooked pasta on our 2 mains. Did not have time to wait for a fresh replacement as had plans. Very disappointed.

Food was good though took quite a while to arrive. But no flexibility on the menu items which is slightly odd for freshly cooked food. Difficult if you have food allergies. Staff not particularly interested once they had your order. Cashless restaurant. 10% service charge...automatically added to the bill. No interest in returning to this restaurant.More

We are big fans of Sud and were excited/bit nervous to try the new menu last night! Absolutely loved it! Really enjoyed being able to try all the starters which were delicious, followed by our favourite pasta dishes and still had room for desert! Lovely...staff and great service as always. Highly recommended!More

We have been going to Sud around once every couple of weeks for years and it has been an absolute favourite of ours they have an awesome FOH team too. Whilst the food is still excellent the new concept of small plates pasta dishes seems...confused. Understandably they needed to raise there spend per head as it’s a business that is growing with a new site just opened up in Manchester. However personally I would have rather just paid more for the same hearty comforting food they were so well respected for. The dishes have decreased by 1/3rd in size which is slightly annoying as if it was 1/2 I would have just doubled up on everything to get the usual order. A real shame that a restaurant that is such an integral part of the neighbourhood has made this decision. Unfortunately until they return to a format similar to what they had pre small plates I don’t think we will be visiting any time soon.More

We came last minute without a booking and it was very busy but they kindly fit us in at a table outside which was lovely as it was a warm evening. The food was absolutely beautiful, an absolute hug in a bowl and even the...olives were flavoured beautifully. Well worth the hype I've heard. I'm sorry but I didn't catch the name of the gentleman who we met first and advised us to come back in half an hour but he was lovely and friendly, and Lola and Beatrice were with us for the rest of the meal who were both so welcoming and kind. Lola in particular was our main host and helped us to choose a wine and complementary sides. Couldn't have asked for a nice meal and people for my best friend's birthday meal. Thank you!More

I'm not usually a pasta fan...but, Sud Pasta changes that!! It's food for the soul, made by souls. Unequivocally the heartiest plates of food in Cheshire that will run a fierce riot of an explosion of taste buds. You will not find better pasta anywhere....Guaranteed. You will also never in the whole universe and galaxy and everything in-between find a better bruschetta either. Visit this place, eat the pasta and devour the bruschetta. Your world will be the better for it as is ours for having Sud Pasta.More

We visited here on a Saturday afternoon, it was a busy but not overly, we had prebooked the table and on arrival shown our table and all was good, however we was about to receive our main meal when another couple joined our table and...the staff said 'Oh its a sharing table' and apparently this happens at other venues so beware if you are looking for a quiet meal out as other people will be joining you! There was other tables available too!! We even saw another couple looked as shocked as us when they had to join a table of 4. Noone had mentioned this, it wasnt on the website (that i saw) or on our booking. It should have been advised straight away!! Highly disappointed!! Food was amazing but due to this we wouldnt return!! Seemed like a bit of a cash thing, ie: Get as many bookings in as you can!! Oh and they add on the tip, when asked to remove they question why!!! Really???More

Really disappointed with the service. We booked table online and submitted card details. It all went through. However we didn't get an email confirmation. When we called the restaurant to chase, they said they didn't have the booking and the website can fail! They made...no attempt to accommodate the booking!More

Hmm the food excellent, we both had house sugo pasta very tasty. Slightly disappointed it was served on a chipped plate! The garlic sour dough was beautiful. The thing I would mark them down on I was disappointed at sharing a table with another couple!...I didn’t enjoy that and, as a result didn’t stop after having mains as felt uncomfortable having others eating right next to me. It was a real shame as for this reason I wouldn’t rush back. Don’t like service charge added, but that is just me as think you pay for that and to be honest I always tip if I am happy with service. Staff a bit uninterested in you but that could be because it was a busy service. Also they don’t take cash!!More

Having finally got rid of the small people for a friday night, we managed to get an early table at a place we had been meaning to try ever since they opened up! being Altrincham residents for many many years, having our ears bashed about...how great this place was (and having done many a Hardens Guide review, having read about its success), we bit the bullet. managing to get the Bench seats near the window, we had great chatty staff who were genuinely interested in talking to us, super smells coming from the kitchen and a really good "busy" vibe. Managing to people watch all the Alty Market crowd across the way hoovering their Aperol Spritz, we ordered lamb meatballs and the fava bean and greens bruschetta to start. Both were brilliant, looking back we could have ordered them again just for the pea broth that came with meatballs and the way all the flavours of the bruschetta just oozed into the sourdough... by this time i had had a refreshing beer and my wife was happy with her non alco beer, but there was no way I was passing up having a jug of red wine with my house sugo pasta. we both ordered this and on reflection dare i say we could have shared one! The plates of perfectly cooked pasta, the slow cooked 8 hr ragu of beef shin and pork shoulder (the best way to cook these meats) with an extra side of sourdough with garlic and rosemary butter (Don’t you dare just call it garlic bread, the difference is night and day), was that unctuous and satisfying we didn't talk to each other for about 15minutes... it was that good. By comparison, yesterday I went to a fine dining place in manchester and spent three times the amount and enjoyed myself half as much... you do the maths. Forza Sud!More

I’d wanted to visit the restaurant for a while so decided to book online 2 days prior. There was hardly any availability so make sure you do book in advance. The website said only the outside covered and heated area was available. I was really...sceptical of the only available part of the venue but decided to give it a go. It was well-heated, well-lit and comfortable so if visiting again I would happily sit there if the inside wasn’t available. The waitresses were all really helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. The service was fairly quick but didn’t make us feel like we were rushing our food which we appreciated. In terms of cost we paid £78 for: 2 starters 2 mains An extra piece of bread (steep at £1.50!!) Olives (again, steep at £4!!) Garlic bread A medium bottle of sparkling water 1 beer 1 medium glass of wine We thought this was quite reasonable in general considering as the portion sizes, particularly the mains, were generous. We would recommend the burrata, garlic bread and pasta. It was tasty, of excellent quality and the ingredients were carefully considered. The only reason for which I haven’t given 5/5 is that I wouldn’t rush back. I would only go back if the menu changed as due to the nature of the restaurant, the menu is very limited but this is how the place operates. Also, we spent a lot of time in Italy last year mainly Bologna and Sicily and despite not being from the same region as the dishes from the pasta kitchen, the food we had abroad was so much better in terms of taste.More
