I think this restaurant has changed hands once again (with the exception of the chef) as the service this time was impeccable. They have changed the early bird menu so there's not much choice now which is disappointing but the food is as good as ever. Glad the service has finally improved!

This place is such a gem, amazing staff, so helpful and friendly, booked a table for 6pm but picked my sister and brother in law up from Piccadilly and train was late so rang them and explained, got there at 6.30pm and even though the place was packed we were seated by 6.45pm, food amazing as always. Lovely atmosphere.

Although the food itself was decent enough when we visited, we were firstly placed on a table in the middle of the floor and couldn't relax as the staff were continually barging past us, despite other tables being available. Secondly after asking for the bill we had to wait for over 45 minutes for it, which really put us off... More

What a wonderful restaurant, that is as good if not better than the majority of Manchester restaurants. We went for the first time on a Friday night. The decor is great, and the service from when we walked in the door to when we left was exceptional. The quality of the food was brilliant, from the pasta dishes to the... More

Always a joy to visit. Delicious authentic Italian food, lovely setting, attentive staff, great value for money. If you know what decent quality food is then you'll be choosing Il Vecchio.

We had booked a table for 20.30, and on arrival there was a further 5 parties waiting in the doorway to be seated all had booked tables. Looking into the restaurant it was very busy and all tables full. But not one member of staff came to apologise or explain that there was a delay on tables. We stood for... More
