“Tired and untidy”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2011

Where to start , sat at the back of the downstairs restaurant area, to my left through a doorway were dirty towels and clothes just lying everywhere, staff not happy and slow , food quite good but overpriced , basic italian food in an old tired environment , for price not good enough.

“Cosy Little Resturant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2011

You go down below ground to this resturant which is small and cosy, not much room about it but a good selection of wines and the food was excellent. Great service from the staff and prices are keen. Would definately return.

“The best Italian in Manchester”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2010

Ciao Bella (as it is now called) is my favourite restaurant in Manchester. I have been there many, many times and the service and food is always second to none.

Prices are very reasonable for a busy city centre restaurant, with a very extensive menu.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and the atmosphere is always relaxed.

When I last visited I ordered the Sardine Fritte for a starter which is a small meal in itself, two sardine fillets battered, drizzled with a balsamic sauce and a side salad. Absolutely delicious.

My main this time was Pasta al Salmone which never fails to disappoint, though I can rarely manage to finish it, the portions of pasta are so large.

The pizzas too are huge and are large enough to share for a light lunch/tea.

Ciao Bella also have an excellent wine list with the Merlot never failing to disappoint.
