    Amazing place with great food. The staff are friendly. However because it was a Friday night and busy, there didn’t seem to be enough staff. We were placed in the corner near the bar, and were forgotten about or overlooked due to staff being busy. This could just be a one time thing due to staff shortages or just being very busy. Will still come again, as the food was great.

    Absolutely amazing! The best Italian food I’ve had in Manchester. The restaurant is small and cosy, and really feels like you could be in an Italian backstreet rather than the Northern Quarter. It is not cheap, but this is reflected in the quality. Backless seats only (for anyone with bad backs!) but otherwise our experience was perfect. Will be back.

    Food was so so, very small place and really hot when we got there - like stepping into an oven! Thankfully they opened the front door after a while to cool the restaurant down a bit. My food was pre made and heated up. I wouldn’t go back for their food as it was 2/10 in my opinion. The bill came and we thought it was a lot of money for what we actually had so again I wouldn’t go back for food, maybe would go back for a drink at a push but the restaurant is tiny and the seats are hard stools so probably not going to return.

    Food was very good and would highly recommend it- especially the meat and cheese board to start. Its a smell menu of good and fresh choices which are reasonably priced. A couple of issues came up with drinks but staff were happy to correct them and remake the drink again which was great. One thing I’d like to point out is the restaurant is tiny and there’s very little space between tables which meant it wasn’t that comfortable because you’re almost touching the people behind you.

    First visit here and it most certainly won't be our last. A cute and cosy little restaurant that is ran by amazing staff and offers unbelievable sicilian food and desserts. You couldn't get any closer to being abroad in sicily unless you were actually their. A fantastic experience.

    Excellent food and service, energetic atmosphere. Happy staff always smiling. We had the ham and cheese tagliere with focaccia as starter to share and then I had Trinacria, perfect combination of swordfish ravioli with cappers and black olives in tomato sauce and my friend had a delicious aubergines layered parmigiana. Desserts here are to die for. I tried the coppa della casa gelato, so huge with how many flavours you like. I had a flavour called the setteveli cake pistachio (basically their most famous cake done as a gelato tray), hazelnuts and coffee. my friend instead tried the cassatina cake with sweet ricotta and green marzipan. This place is an hidden gem in the Northern Quarter..portion are big and prices are fair for the quality and quantity you got.

    Firstly, our drinks were forgotten and took 20 minutes to arrive. When we finally got attention to order food, the waiter was very quiet and disengaged. We ordered a starter to share, two mains and some olives on the side. The olives arrived first and then our mains arrived 15 minutes before our starter turned up! As we didn't want our food to get cold, we started eating which was also disappointing to say the least. My pesto gnocchi was nice but didn't have any depth of flavour, and my partner's Portobello tagliatelle was one of the worst, most bland dishes I have ever experienced in a restaurant. There was no sauce whatsoever, no pepper and the pasta was slightly stiff, almost like it was recooked dry pasta. We could tell the staff noticed we weren't happy, and we were then avoided and once again had to try get attention to get the bill. DO NOT GO HERE!

    Lovely food but felt as though we were rushed to order and pay, as we were in and out within 40 minutes. Our food order was being taken before our drinks even arrived, and my empty plate was taken away even though my partner was still eating. We also had to sit at the bar whilst eating our main meals, which made it a more uncomfortable experience. this also meant we could not fully enjoy the atmosphere of the venue, as we had our backs to the room the whole time.

    Unfortunately we were not impressed with this resteraunt. We booked a table in advance at half 8 and we’re not given our table till 9.30pm. We had to wait an hour and I think this is unacceptable when you make a reservation. We were offered some complimentary snacks / our drinks for free on our bill but when the bill actually came they only gave us 10% off the drinks and a few of our snacks off free. The server didn’t seem to have any authority to give us anymore and said the manager lives in Sicily so couldn’t check to see what compensation we could be given. Won’t be going back.

    Some of the food was great!! All presented really well!! Some portion sizes small and had to get extra dishes and bread. Which was costly. We were a table of 10, which Im not sure they should accept in the future as we were told to quiet down as it was a small place.

    Amazing breakfast. We tried the Sicilian version of Egg Benedict with Parma Ham and Full Italian, Italian version of Full English with small arancini ragu' in the middle, fried eggs, italian spicy sausage, creamy mushrooms, potatoes crocchetta with mozzarella, focaccia and Parma Ham with 2 Bloody Maria. All delicious. Then we tried a pancake with gelato, we choice the gelato called Setteveli pistachio cake basically it is their best seller cake done as gelato tray. Food and Dessert here is amazing. Highly recommended.
