We were looking for a good italian restaurant in the city centre, and since we heard a lot about this restaurant we decided to give it a go. I am pretty sure that almost all staff is italian, which makes it even more authentic and the food was perfect, from the starters to the desert! We went for pasta, which... More

Visited here last Summer holidays with the kids. Having spent the morning and early afternoon at MOSI (5 min walk away) we decided to grab a late lunch. We didn't plan on eating here, but passed the menu and liked what we saw so fave it a whirl. Sat outside which is in a ginnel type tunneled area, basically a... More

We were on the way to Dimitris when my son spotted the word "pizza" so we made a diversion. It was the right diversion as we all loved the food at Don Marco. The portions are very generous(even my son's kid size spaghetti) so we went home with pizza for later.

We visited here after reading all the good reviews and we were looking forward to a good Italian. Starters were a mixed bag. My partners tuna starter was good but my crab cakes were pretty average and served luke warm. The main problem however was the mains. My partner ordered a medium fillet steak with peppercorn sauce. I ordered veal... More

We had dinner here on the 6th of February. I booked this restaurant after reading the reviews on trip advisor. It was great restaurant and I was intrigued that we would be eating outside on a cold February evening. There are plenty of heaters so I was more than warm enough. It was a good atmosphere, the food was good.... More

This restaurant besides being beautiful is really excellent. There is a heated outdoor area which is phenomenal. The food is cooked and prepared to perfection and the wine is good. The staff is very friendly, helpful and prompt. In short, it is a place that deserves to be "visited!"

I am from Italian background and eaten in many OK Italian restaurants but Don Marco is special. The atmosphere is spot on. We had the Antipasto which had Mortadella and Artichokes out of this world. I then had Penne Picante which blew my socks off, my wife had spaghetti del mare imperiale which she could not finish. All with a... More

What can I say about Don Marco other than it's just brilliant and a new favourite of mine within all of what Manchester has to offer. I took my girlfriend here over the weekend and we had an absolutely lovely meal. The atmosphere is wonderful, from the brilliantly Italian decor to the fact that all of the waiters (at least...
