San Carlo CicchettiItalian
As the first San Carlo Cicchetti, the Manchester restaurant had a lot to prove on opening in 2010. Seven years and several awards later, it’s still going strong. Why? We think it’s attention to detail. Founder Carlo Distefano is a stickler for quality and you’ll find the same passion for produce and impeccable service at every San Carlo. Let’s just say it runs in the family.
Located on the ground floor of House of Fraser, Cicchetti is ideal post-shopping. But the restaurant has become a destination in its own right, known for expertly-crafted small plates washed down with a beer or glass of wine. Cicchetti is a Venetian custom, much like Spanish tapas. Enjoy one or two as a snack along with drinks, or several as a meal that’s bursting with variety. With relaxed yet sophisticated surroundings, San Carlo Cicchetti gives everyday dining a sense of occasion. Don’t miss the homemade potato gnocchi with parmesan and black truffle, or house risotto, all served in portions made to share.
