Don Marco restaurant is only a few minutes walk from the Castlefield hotel. Really pleasant staff and it has seating inside or out and outside is covered by a high glass roof. Our food came to us quickly and was absolutely fantastic. Plenty of choice on the menu and extremely well priced. Will definitely call back again. Thank you Don... More

Fantastic Italian restaurant in the heart of Manchester. Always a good sign when an Italian restaurant is run by Italians - You know that the style and food has proper Italian passion in it. Key points - Excellent food. Very high standard and from what we could tell others were thinking the same. Staff were friendly, polite, well-mannered and accommodating.... More

We were holed up at the Hilton due to a 27hr flight delay and didn't fancy hotel food. This place is 200m away and we ordered a takeaway. Both Margarita and Picante were delicious and the dough / crust were fantastic. All pizzas between £7-10ish. Also looks great to eat in. Staff were great - friendly, efficient and good looking,...

Highly rated the garlic bread with cheese! The calamari is very nice with its garlic mayo dip. Both are great starters to share. The seafood special was okay, nice seafood, mediocre spaghetti and sauce. Good service.

When choosing our 5 restaurants for our anniversary break I must admit I thought long and hard about Don Marco, regularly checking my fellow reviewers up to booking (several weeks ahead). Having sold the idea to my dear wife the night we arrived we joined 3 other parties who had bookings and none of our tables were ready. The atmosphere... More

Came here last night for a family meal for my grandmas birthday weekend and it was absolutely beautiful! Everything about the restaurant I love! We were sat outside in the terrace area under a heater which they got working for us so we were warm. It was like being in Italy! There is a great atmosphere and ambiance about the... More

Overall this restaurant was good, however they really need to lay off the oil... The pizza was plain in some spots and then super oily in others, however the pasta was good but filling. Service was great but not sure I'll head again!

I love it at Don Marco! We only ever visit on special occasions and have NEVER been disappointed. The prawns to start with are my all time favourite. I cannot rate this place highly enough. Sitting outside is lovely in the covered seating area. The staff are attentive and the service is impeccable. If I had a granny, I would... More
