    What a lovely little place. We went in for cocktails and desserts. Firstly the staff were lovely, second the cocktails were fab and the desserts super tasty. The best thing was watching all the delicious food go out and wondering what we would have next time we go! Lovely little place with a great atmosphere and authentic food

    Amazing visit to this restaurant, this was our first trip and I would recommend it to anyone. Fabulous food, amazing service and wonderful ambiance. Always good when there are a table of Italians sat behind us. This is the best genuine Italian food we have found outside of Italy and we will definitely be back.

    This experience was very bad since on January 1 I went with my family to the restaurant, for which at first they accepted the first dishes, for which 5 minutes passed and then there were no things, regarding the wines they were very bad, the menu is very limited due to lack of products, as well as the taste of the food, very bad, I do not recommend and I would not go

    Sicilian NQResponded on January 11, 2023So if the taste of food was very bad and the wine as well..why you didn't complain at the moment and obviously not eat and not drinks?!?!? You and your family ate everything on the plates. We run out of some dishes, this is true and normal for a small restaurant after a very busy new eve night. The girl who served you, did a mistake and gave you the full menu instead of the reduced one, you got mad and from there you started saying everything was bad but the plate very empty

    Me & my daughter was so looking forward to going to a good Italian restaurant for new years as we had travelled a long way to celebrate the New Year. On arrival staff were friendly and nice altho a couple of them looked very tired which dulled the moment for us. Therefore, we got our drinks and yes we were happy until we tried to order food. The choices we made was then later told they had run out. It was then a case of settle for what they had left in the cupboard!! The table next to us was served frozen food that had not been thawed or cooked!! The excitement of travelling soo far just diminished rapidly. The staff did apologise and discounted what we ate but the fact it was the last day of the year this will be a meal not remembered.

    Sicilian NQResponded on January 11, 2023Hello Pete excuse me but why you talk about the table next to you?!? I didn't receive any bad review, complain or anything from them. You eavesdrop wrong. It was the new eve night you come very late and we run out of something. This can be only a good sign because it means food it is fresh and if we run out we run out. That''s our policy and we go with the rest of the dishes. You had still plenty of choice. We are not a multinational company with 30 dishes in the menu or a big restaurant.

    Food was fantastic, service was okay- a little slow but considering the day it was understandable, the room was very warm to the point the window was condensating, and the layout was poor as we were sat at the bar eating our meal as they were over booked. Overall w good experience

    Sicilian NQResponded on January 11, 2023Hello Tom I'm glad you appreciate our food. I need to highlight we were not overbooked. On the new eve night people was able to choice if they wanted to sit at the Bar and you booked for Bar. Our place is very small and got only bar stools so anything really change from table to bar table, is very similar. We have only 5 tables for 4 to 5 people, 1 table for more than 5, 1 table for 3. We 6 BarTable for party of 2.

    I’ve been to Sicilian a few times now, and the food is always delicious. Usually the service is great too however this time it wasn’t. The waitresses seemed fairly new and the one that served us was chewing gum with her mouth open the entire time, at one point kissed her teeth, and was just rude. Really let the experience down and they’ve bumped the prices up since the last time I went.

    Sicilian NQResponded on January 11, 2023I'm glad you loved the food:-) We had some temporary new staff during December :-( Prices are higher because everything went up from ingredients, electricity/gas, staff wages, etc. We import a lot directly from Sicily and this is expensive now so we have been obligated to put the prices higher as every other business in the uk a part from the ones they want to go bankrupt in a couple of months. Over Christmas who is not doing expensive fixed menu needs to put a bit higher to offer a la carte

    Food was mediocre. Service was good, staff was friendly. The puff pastry with spinach and cheese fondue had way too much spinach and not enough fondue. The lemonade had some kind of after taste. The risotto ball was actually quite good, as were the chips. The gnocchi with clams was ok, just not to much flavor. The red wine was not good. Prices were fine, just wish the food would have been better. The staff was attentive and very nice. If the food can be better, the place would be fantastic.

    Sicilian NQResponded on December 30, 2022Hello Jen you are the first one who didn't like our red wine, why you didn't tell anything on the day. I can take actions and give you another wine if I know about that. Same for the lemonade or the food you didn't like. Basically it seems you didn't like anything from the lemonade to the food to the red wine. I think you should tell me in that day directly and give me the opportunity to correct something. Writing the review without saying a word at the restaurant doesn't help

    Really tasty meal. Food, service and staff were good. Thoroughly enjoyable. Would definitely return when in Manchester again. Only comment is that I should have checked out the seating as sitting on bar stools is not good for me as I suffer with my back. My fault, not yours.

    Sicilian NQResponded on December 30, 2022Hello Linda grazie for your review, I'm glad you liked the food. You are right our bistro got only bar stools without backrest so it's not so comfortable. It's more a wine bar with kitchen than a restaurant. I write a lot this information on our socials and when I reply to comments in this way people are aware before coming. Thank you for taking the topic out.

    We booked the offer through open table of £25 for 3 courses, which is a very good deal. We chose Arrancini for starters which were really good. Main course of Gnocchi was very average. The flavours were just disappointing after such good starters. The portion since for Gnocchi was quite large so I could only eat half. We ordered the mini cannoli for pudding but couldn't manage to eat them so took them home. The staff were lovely and really helpful. Drinks were also good. Our only real issue was that we felt cold much of the time as the staff kept opening the door to let air in.

    We booked a table for 7 people at 7:30 and were sat on 2 separate tables for the first 45 minutes because the table we booked was not available. We had to wait a long time for our food and when it arrived half the meals were cold. They reheated our meals by putting both in the same pot and then reserving meaning the vegan option and the cheese option came back mixed together! The vegan meals were no longer vegan and no member of staff came to apologise they proceeded to ignore our table until we approached them to ask for the bill. When the bill came there was no discount and we then had to repeatedly ask for a discount because we were not satisfied with our experience. The staff didn’t know the menu and the choice of wine was poor - unheard of in an Italian restaurant. They ran out of wine and when we asked our waiter for her suggestion she said all the wines are the same. One train station quality toilet. The olives were good.

    Great little place in NQ, We went for a works Xmas Meal booked 7 weeks ago and paid up front, table for 11 people at 5.30pm Positives - excellent and tasty food, friendly and helpful staff. Negative - - food order had to change several times on all three courses due to restaurant not having some of the menu options available - if this was 9pm i'd perhaps have understood, but given it was 5.30pm on a Saturday afternoon this was quite surprising. Aside from that a minor quibble that multiple drinks requests were missed and we had to ask on several occasions. Again understand that the restaurant was busy and a table of 11 is a lot, but it was written down on a few occasions so... but the staff were very apologetic and sorted it eventually so this is a minor thing and probably more to do with such a large group than anything else. Overall we enjoyed it, thanks again

    Sicilian NQResponded on December 7, 2022Hello Daman..thank you for your understanding. We had the electronic communication system from iPad to the bar going up and down because of internet so some drinks didn't arrive to the bartender but the waiter thought they were sent. About the items missing you are completely right it is not normal at 5.30 on Saturday night but again we got a problem with a delivery who didn't come so we ended up not having some dishes Overall I'm happy you liked the food. Really sorry for any inconvenient

    Disappointed with our meals, both starters and mains came cold and we had to send back to kitchen, but they just heated them up so came back overcooked. Waitress coughed on our food before handing us the dinner. She didn't know what plates she was giving us and just said it was 'pasta' so we had to guess. Overall lovely atmosphere, but maybe drinks only.
