Lovely starters but disappointed with main course as I asked if the lamb doner kebab was real lamb meat or actual doner which is offal. I was told it was actual lamb meat but it wasn't so I couldn't eat it. It was doner which looked like processed rubbish.

Ee have eaten at Zitano twice this week as we all enjoyed the first meal so much we had to go back. The food is fresh and delicious. There is a lot of choice and everything we tried was great. I really love the pizza.

We all loved the food we had at Zitano it was delicious. We will be going back for sure.
Getting 50%off food in Jan is also amazing value and a great offer.
The staff were friendly and helpfull.
I had the pizza and it was soooo good, but everything was fresh hot and tasty.

On a hot Wednesday, eating lunch on the large deck was most enjoyable. The food was excellent and this made up for the fact that it cost a little more than we normally spend on our weekly lunch out.

Choose to visit based on a recommendation, was a get together with friends for a birthday celebration. Easy online booking. The weather was great so we had a table outside which was great. Service was not the best, we were not offered the drinks menu while we waited for the rest of the group to arrive. They didn't bring one of the mains dishes..think they had forgot but offered no apology. It was a different waiter each time they came to the table, despite this we had to ask a number of times for table water. The food was average, donor kebab was very greasy, not the best value for money considering the fabulous choice in Chorlton

Food quality was very good but we experienced very disappointing service. We waited 30 minutes after being seated and had to ask to place our order. The waitress said they had a large group upstairs and we would have to wait 15 more minutes. She got our drinks and gave us one portion of hummus for the wait but only one small piece of pita each, which wasn’t much consolation. After 45 minutes we finally placed our orders and the starters came quite quickly. They were nice. Later on, one of the main courses was forgotten due to a ‘system error’ and would take another 15 minutes. Given the time we had already wasted, we cancelled it which meant one of our group didn’t eat. When the bill came it had incorrect items on it (overcharging us for 4 items) and they had to correct it twice. Eventually they knocked 1 drink off the bill and gave us 30% off which was appreciated but didn’t make up for the poor experience and the fact one person hadn’t eaten. The restaurant looks nice and the food was good but unfortunately I wouldn’t return because of the numerous service problems.

Great atmosphere. We did arrive late on Saturday.
Had lamb koftas but was only served up two, each those size of a small cocktail sausage. For £7.50 I felt as though this was slightly on the expensive side - considering the last time I had ordered this place I was given 4.

2nd time eating here and noticeably poor compared to last time. Waiting staff running around like no one was in control, missing food off orders and the bar area looked like no one had washed a glass all day. Massively disappointed and as a local resident I hope this place improves otherwise it won’t be long before people avoid it.

We went for lunch at Zitano to see if it was a good spot for a family celebration later in the week. We had looked on another website and it had got mixed reviews. We were sufficiently impressed by our meal to book a family dinner for six of us.
Service was efficient, friendly and quick. The house wine was very acceptable and, for a restaurant, not expensive.
I had steak, which was cooked to perfection and came with the usual trimmings, plus a sauce (even though I had not ordered one), the sauce was not charged for. The steak was supposed to come with chips but these did not arrive with the meal. I mentioned this to the waitress, who said that they were on their way. When we were asked, after a few minutes, if everything was OK, I asked about the chips again and they arrived shortly afterwards. They were very fresh and had obviously just been cooked, I was half-way through my steak by this time.
My wife had the Donner Kebab, something that she had not eaten since Prego closed in the 1980s, an unpretentious Greek restaurant (cafe really) that set a very high culinary bar. She thought that it was sliced rather thinly, which resulted in it being a bit too dry. The seasoning was perfect but the boiled rice was plain and came without any sauce.
Despite my criticisms, which I hope are taken as being constructive, we enjoyed our meal.
At less than £60 for both of us, including steak, one dessert and several glasses of wine we thought that pricing was reasonable.
The atmosphere was good and the background music was low enough not to inhibit conversation or be intrusive. I'll be happy to go again.

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague. We all ordered the Sunday Lunch and was told the beef would be rare ( which is great) 2/3 came rare but mine was very very tough and over cooked. The rest of the food was luke warm. It seemed it had been left on the side for quite a while. We were upsold the cauliflower cheese which was awful, frozen cauliflower (you could tell, it was rubbery and full of water when you bit or cut into it) and there wasn't really any cheese on it, it was just watery cauliflower.

My son had the kids meal which was great, it was the tastiest meal out of the lot. I had subscribed to the mailing list for 30% off but did not get the discount so we paid over £60.00 for cold food really!

Visited on NYE, the place was cold as was my meal which had to be sent back to the kitchen. This was the third visit and the menu seems to have shrunk from the fist visit in October which was disappointing. There was a shortage of staff. We were seated downstairs and we were showered wit broken glass from upstairs. The bill was adjusted to take into account the cold meal. Would have to think carefully before visiting again.

We were given a gift groupon voucher which stated we could choose a starter and main course up to a specific value plus a glass of wine. We arrived to be told that wasn’t the case and had to choose from a set menu. Service was very slow and meals came out at different times. The place is nice but seems very disorganised

Really enjoyed the evening. Zucca pasta was great, then the wood fired pizza was delicious. My only criticism is that the dessert menu is a bit limited. Service was very good and I would definitely go back.
