Manchester is a long way from Milan – whether geographically, culturally, linguistically, culinarily...we could go on. At least their two football teams play in red and blue, to make people feel more secure, plus it does rain more in Milan than most people think it does. In Hyde they have Paglicacci Restaurant, a restaurant that makes the some thousand miles, the difference between opera and Oasis, Milanese and Manc, pizza and pies seem like a small hop, with an Italian menu that is as authentic as it is expansive. You can find them on Market Street – Strado di Marche, if you will – in Hyde, just a short walk from the Hydo Centrale train station, so head on over and try some of their pastas, pizzas and other Italian specialities. Remember to book a table though, as they can get very busy.
Never disappointed whenever I have eaten here. Fabulous food and attentive staff. Had a fillet steak medium rare which was cooked to perfection. Myself and both companions rate this place as one of the best restaurants in the area.
Food was of an excellent quality. I had pasta with salmon and my son had a calzone pizza. We were treated quickly and efficiently and we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
This is a lovely restaurant, enhanced by a beautiful grand piano which instantly creates a wonderful atmosphere. During our visit there was tasteful background music being played at just the right volume. We had a comfortable corner table and waiters were attentive and anxious to please. The menu is comprehensive and there is food for all tastes. As a pescatarian I sometimes find it difficult to find a suitable meal, but here I was spoiled for choice. There is food for all budgets, from the humble pizza and pasta to more sophisticated meat and fish dishes. The house red wine was delicious and our food very good. This was a very good experience
Been to this restaurant many times, as usual the service and the food quality is excellent. Would recommend this place to anyone who likes Italian or any wishing to try it for the first time.
Me and my fiancé where celebrating our 3 year anniversary and I have to say the atmosphere was good, the customer service as good and the food was good. The only issue is have is i ordered a stuffed chicken breast with salad and when it came it was literally a chicken breast and a bit of salad and it cost a whopping £15 I was still hungry after eating it and had to finish my partners meal off to try and fill me up. I would definitely recommend the garlic bread with cheese it was one of the nicest garlic bread I have ever had and if I'm honest i could have had a massive plate of that for my main course if I had known how good it was. I would give the restaurant a 6.5 out of 10 overall the only thing that let it down was value for money I felt certain things where more overpriced than they needed to be.
Good meal but poor attitude of main waiter (manager?) More bothered about being paid than looking after the guests. Last time we went, the waiters were fabulous, treating you like family. Now the smile and friendliness has gone and it wasn't that full. This was a special birthday celebration for my wife, which normally would have had the staff being attentive and responsive to make the most of the night and making the experience something to remember. Nothing like that now! There are other Italian restaurants, with equally good food, who treat you as though you're special. That got lost at Pagliaccis on Saturday 8 April. Shame!
Being Italian I am a natural born food critic and if the food does not match my mum's cooking it ain't good that said the food is excellent service is great atmosphere is superb only one thing lets it down .... pineapple on pizza esotica other than that I truly cannot fault it been going there for years never disappointed
From entering the restaurant, we were greeted with a very friendly atmosphere it was warm and welcoming. The staff were excellent both with service and professionally. The food was excellent very fresh and heat hot just what you want. If you want to go on a Saturday make sure you book. Can't wait to go again.
Fantastic food served by wonderful people. Hyde has a lot of restaurants and takeaways and we have tried most of them. Not one comes close to the experience we get when we visit. Top, top class and we cannot speak high enough. Keep up the good work guys, look forward to our next evening with you.
Good service, friendly staff and extremely good food. We arrived on time and was shown straight to our table, there was no rush to order although the drinks order was taken straight away. I had the lasagne for the main meal and it couldnt be faulted, delicious and extremely generous portion, will certainly visit again.
