I've visited pesto in The Trafford Centre and must admit that the food is absolutely beautiful and the service is excellent, the Manageress ( Small Black curly hair) was an excellent host, we will go back soon.
I would strongly recommend a visit to Pesto, everything from the starters to the coffee's could not be faulted. The service was excellent and I will certainly be revisiting shortly
I went to Pesto last week and had a great meal - especially the meatballs, peperoni pizza and prawns - yes I know it sounds a wierd combination, but I loved the variety - like a tapas meal. The staff were friendly and the food arrived promptly. Quite a refreshing change from the usual 'big plate of pasta or pizza' type Italians.
Went for a girl's afternoon out, and absolutely loved it. Staff were great, we didn't have to ask or shout out, they just saw us look in their direction and made their way over. There were six of us, we ordered 3 dishes each and we all shared! The food was devine and I have not stopped thinking about it since! We got a taste of everything and went through loads of wine. I recommended Pesto to a friend and she went to the Trafford Centre restaurant and she and her friends loved it and vowed to go back. All the waiters are gorgeous, if that helps!! Can't wait to take the husband and kids
Tiny portions (even for Tapas), expensive, disorganised.
Maybe I went on the wrong night but I won't be going back to find out.
Some people just love to moan. I loved this place. Went with a few friends and the atmosphere and service were excellent. We had the fest Menu and the amount of food that came flowing out was unbelievable. I'm telling you, if you can manage a dessert after the Festa Menu, you have some kind of appetite. It was great value for money!!
Didn? really know what to expect really as I have only had tapas a few times and with our party having the ?esta Menu?we didn? really know what the script was.
The place has a lovely vibe to it and the staff were really nice. Were very helpful in helping us make a change to the set menu.
As we had the Festa menu for 7, we got bowls of food, however no serving spoons, our plates weren? changed between the 2 courses so we had pesto covered plates then ate lamb stew off it. We asked for more napkins and they never arrived. I would have thought there would have been salt & pepper, Parmesan etc etc on the table, which there weren?.
The big disappointment though was the big chunk of what seemed like plastic bag in the gnocchi. We brought this to the attention of our waiter who had a word with the kitchen staff. We asked what was the outcome and he never got back to us.
Think I would go back but avoid the gnocchi and only for a table for 2, as our table for 10 was a bit unorganised. We had 7 for the Festa menu and 3 ordering separately. Granted this could have been a bit awkward for the kitchen staff but not rocket science either.
Having been recommended by many friends to try pesto, i must admit i didn't know how italian tapas would work, (being a big italian food lover), however i was extremely pleased with the range of food choice and the way it was presented! the decor i thought was gorgeous creating a romantic but stylish ambiance, in a completely different league from la tasca! 10/10
I went here with a few of my brother friends on his birthday party.
Although they forgot our booking they managed to fit us in on a very busy night!
The service was good considering how packed it was, and was always attentive and the food came very quickly and was fresh and tasty and the idea of italian tapas is good one.
I'd say this is one of the best italians in Manchester.
Ate their for the first time last week and will definitely be eating there again ! Was lovely :-)
