San Carlo review
***Updated July 2010***
Since opening San Carlo has built a reputation of being the best Italian restaurant in Manchester, as well as a certain infamy for being a favourite of many of the region’s celebrities – the presence of two premiership football clubs in the city helps this along nicely. Even the recent arrival of a few pretenders to the ‘best Italian in Manchester’ crown don’t seem to have bothered San Carlo too much – Rosso and Don Marco spring to mind – as they have maintained a faithful client base and reputation for top quality food in warm, sophisticated surroundings. Rumours of a Jamie’s Italian in the King Street area may make things interesting for Italian restaurants in the areas but it seems cert ain San Carlo is to remain Manchester’s favourite for the foreseeable future.
A "nu breed" Italian that shuns the traditional interior design for a more modern layout. This restaurant has certainly hit the right notes with the local 'glitterari', as it counts Sven Goran Eriksson as one of its favourite clients (be that a good thing or a bad thing, he is a self proclaimed expert on Italian food), and it's ideally located on King Street West, close to the trendy shops and almost opposite Kendals (Manchester's House Fraser).
There are two issues that have been noted about San Carlo. Firstly this is no 'mom and pop, ?20 for two including wine' style operation - this is classy food and it comes at a price. The second is the service, which some reviewers, both on this site and external sites, have noted can be temperamental'. The complaints about San Carlo tend to steer away from the most important part of any restaurant; the food, and - to date - this is something that has been loved.
In conclusion: if you're after a swanky Italian and money is no object then this is well worth a try. If you've tried San Carlo before then why not drop a review below, and let everyone know about your dining experience?
