Square Meal Review of Cicchetti ?

Manchester’s most glamorous in-store restaurant runs independently of its home in the Kendals department store, with a separate entrance & a buzz that’s all its own. Greeted by a bounteous display of fruit, veg, bread & pasta, first-time customers might be expecting something rustic but apart from the service (which can be gruff & charmless), Cicchetti is super-sleek. Amid brass rails, marble & leather, closely-packed tables are laden with the restaurant’s signature small plates; steak tartare made at the table, lentils with basil & burrata, pasta with meatballs, marinated vegetables & filled flatbreads are all shared, although full-size dishes are served, too. Staff will assist in wine-list navigation, although with so many flavours at play, a Peroni might do the job.

Italian small plates as opposed to the usual starter and main format however the portion sizes were bigger than expected but we just about polished off all of the dishes.

    The first dish to arrive was duck salad, it was flavourful with pancetta and the apple balanced the dish really well with the sweetness coming through the saltiness...
