SquareMeal Review of San Carlo Manchester

Part of the big-city San Carlo group, this immensely popular Italian rocks even when tumbleweed blows through the rest of the city. At weekends, star-spotting at the huge bar is a regular pastime, as punters see if they can espy Rihanna, Ant & Dec, Sir Alex Ferguson and other A-list regulars. Apart from the glitz and the excellent cocktails, the main attraction is the combination of good trattoria food and sparky service transplanted to a sleek urban setting. Top shouts on the menu include beef carpaccio, richly sauced steaks and pasta – perhaps linguine with clams or garganelli with spicy Calabrian sausage and porcini. Otherwise, fish specials from the blackboard go down a treat with plenty of Champagne – why not? Overall, the cooking is much better than you might expect from a branded venue.

The title pretty much sums it up. I regularly travel to Manchester for business and football and this is the restaurant that I always book. It may be part of the San Carlo chain but that belies the family values behind it. Great food, excellent service and as good an atmosphere as any restaurant you'll ever find. I wouldn't advise it for a quiet romantic meal – for example, you'd have to shout if you wanted to propose and whilst this would most likely be met by the rest of the diners shouting and whooping there approval, your intended might be less flattered. Apart from the food and service, this is the place to go to see and be seen. You'll be rubbing shoulders with TV stars, footballers, businessmen, stunning ladies and probably a villain or two. Quite simply, go to San Carlo. Do not pass Go, do not collect £200.

I love the atmosphere at San Carlo. There’s always a great buzz, last weekend we went we saw some Corrie stars dining a few tables away! We’ll make sure to bring a camera next time!
