My husband and i have been to puccinis a few times for lunch. All of the times, the staff and owners were very friendly, service was quick and food was yummy! I've had the seafood risotto from there and the prawn linguini..both excellent. I kind of liked the decor as well..with autographed footie tshirts..i know my hubby did! Wish my hubby still worked in swinton! But i think its worth making a trip just to go to puccinis :)… Read Full Review

HI.IN THE LAST WEEK I HAVE BEEN AT PUCCINIS WITH MY GIRLFRIEND. EVERYTHING WAS GOOD,GOOD FOOD,VERY GOOD SERVICE,FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE.BUT THE PROBLEM STARTED LATER,WHEN I HAD TO PAY THE BILL.THE BILL WAS VERY EXPENSIVE FOR THE LOCATION(SWINTON PRECINT),BUT THIS IS NOT THE REAL ISSUE. WHEN I ASKED THE WAITER IF THE STAFF WOULD HAVE GOT THE TIPS,HE TOLD ME NOT TO TIP BECAUSE THE PROPRIETOR GIVES TO THE STAFF JUST £5 A SHIFT,AND HE(MR MICHAEL PUCCI) WILL KEEP THE REST. THAT'S VERY SHAMEFUL.I DID… Read Full Review

I hadn't been to puccinis for a while- used to go regularly years ago when it was a small trattoria on the corner of the precinct - it was very good value for money back then - lovely food at a price suited to its surroundings. Have visited the relocated Puccinis a few times before and found it to be ok. However on my most recent visit (Friday 23 March 2012) I was most disappointed. My Husband and myself were shown to our seats and ordered a drink each - the seats in Puccinis have always been… Read Full Review

Puccini's Swinton, Manchester:
'Puccini's never disappoints', - This 'very genuine & friendly Italian' gem has been a favourite with 'discerning local foodies & football stars alike (Gray Neville & Ryan Giggs even has a pasta dish's named after them)'. Much of Puccini's success is down to the 'blessed presence' of proprietor Michael Pucci and his friendly staff that know their way around the menu, & are happy to give chapter & verse on the ingredients. Pasta is always a good shout -… Read Full Review

it gives me great pleasure in saying that puccinis is by far the best italian manchester has to offer, i have been to others around the area and none of them can even come close to the superb service and fantastic food that you will recieve at puccinis. The retaurant is well known in the local area and its great to be able to advise people to go there for a special or even casual occasion. All in all my favourite restaurant and i will continue to eat here for many years to come… Read Full Review

What a great restaurant. Although there are many Italian restaurants, you wont find many that are able to match Puccini's. Puccini's have everything from excellent food to excellent service. From the moment we entered, we were warmly greeted and were regularly asked if everything was ok by various staff and the management.
Definitely will go back… Read Full Review

We tried Puccinis for my partner's birthday, based on its excellent reputation, and am sorry to say we were a little disappointed. It was extremely busy when we arrived but we were quickly shown to our table, this was very cramped as other reviewers have said and we both spent much of the night being bashed into, or leaned over etc..We did not have a specific waiter or waitress and so the service was a little disjointed. The meal started well with an excellent garlic bread, and the starters… Read Full Review

Puccini's is a bit of an institution in Swinton. It's a bustling family-run affair that has been around for a long time. It has been frequented by Manchester United footballers (not hype, there are pictures on the wall!), and they in turn have brought the England squad along when they stayed down the road at Worsely. Puccini's, Swinton, is friendly, great food, chances of seeing footballers here, very reasonably priced.
The food is very good, and varies light meals like a host of pasta and… Read Full Review

Puccini's is a family run business with very friendly staff and excellent food. Never rushed and always made to feel welcome.
In my opinion, the best Italian restaurant in Manchester… Read Full Review
