We ate here for the first time last night based on the other reviews we had read. We ate at 5.30pm so the restaurant was fairly quiet although there were a few tables filled. The staff were very friendly all through the meal and the food was excellent with what we thought was a good varied menu. The only negative... More

Made a reservation and arrived at 7.30pm with a party of 6 & the whole thing was a car crash from start to finish. Have seen a lot of reviews about the poor customer service and definetly agree. We were pushed into a corner and had to wait for someone to turn our outside heater on as it was freezing... More

I ate here last night with some friends whilst visiting Manchester on the back of a friend's recommendation. We were a little disappointed that there wasn't space for us outside but that was our only negative. The food was fantastic - I had the seafood pasta dish and it was some of the freshest tasting seafood I've had. Service was... More

We were recommended by friends to try Don Marco.....arrived just after 5pm on a busy Saturday evening, and despite having not booked we were quickly seated by friendly staff. A lovely atmospheric Italian restaurant, the food was delicious, fresh and very tasty....the service excellent, friendly and made us feel very welcome. I had the calamari, followed by chicken with gnocchi,... More

We had been recommended by a friend so gave it a try. What put us off massively was seeing the kitchen staff sat on the step to the left of the entrance smoking. So we only had a drink. Shame as we had heard good things. The venue itself looks great. A kind of courtyard dining experience

8 of us turned up without booking and we're welcomed warmly. Tables were quickly pushed together to accommodate us. All of the starters and main courses were generous and very tasty. All dishes including alcohol were reasonably priced.

The whole restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. Great setting for romantic meal. I had a carbonara and Panna cotta both were tasty. Quite large portions, overall very good value for money.

Me and my partner had the lunch offer which was any pizza, pasta or salad with wine for £10. What an amazing deal this was and certainly worth the visit inside. We felt welcome and you really do get that Italian atmosphere. The food was amazing too. The pizza was the best I have tasted (that's a lot). Cooked on... More

Pre-booked prior to a show, which was wise as it's very busy. The service was very good, lots of friendly staff. The food was really good quality & decent portion sizes. Would definitely go back.

Have been to Don Marco's a couple of times, on both occasions food was amazing and plentiful. We were a big party on the second occasion and it did appear though the staff got a little bit flustered which was a shame. We had to ask for drinks and then had to wait for them. Perhaps it was new staff/training,... More
