San Carlo confirms Alderley Edge opening date

Coming Soon San Carlo Alderley Edge

San Carlo Alderley Edge will open on 17th August following a £3 million renovation of the site.

The transformation is described as a contemporary take on traditional Italian dining with interiors inspired by Grand Milanese villas and gardens.

The 164 cover restaurant includes a more spacious dining area, thanks to the relocation of the former kitchen, and a Venetian inspired patterned terrazzo floor throughout. Whilst the terrace features a white interior pergola strung with Italian crystal pendant lights, a bespoke Moroccan plaster and marble open flame fireplace. Here customers will be able to enjoy post dinner drinks and late lounge music on Friday and Saturday nights.

Additionally, work is underway to create a first floor private dining and event space complete with marble and brass detailed feature bar, chandelier, terrazzo patterned flooring and a range of tables and seating which can be configured to suit different occasions.

San Carlo's traditional Italian menu will be on offer along with some new summer dishes including Baccalà e Patate - salt cooked cod served with potato and Taggiasche olives dressed with lemon oil; Insalata Finocchio and Formaggio Caprino- a fresh summer salad served with broad beans, fennel and goats cheese dressed with extra virgin olive oil and lime; Risotto capesante e piselli - Carnaroli rice risotto with garden peas, broad beans and cream, served with pan fried scallops; Grilled lamb cutlets marinated in sundried tomato and thyme and a grand sharing pasta for two, Paccheri con coda di rospo e gamberi - large tube pasta served with San Marzano tomatoes, monkfish and prawns.

Commenting on the news, Managing Director Marcello Distefano said: "This marks a significant personal milestone in our family's journey as we venture into this vibrant and thriving community – it's where my siblings and I grew up and went to school; it feels like coming home. It's also a perfect location for us as many of our loyal customers in Manchester reside in and around the area.

"As we gear up for the opening, we wanted to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Alderley Edge community for the overwhelming support and enthusiasm – we've taken our time with the remodelling and design; we wanted to ensure we did this great location justice and deliver a destination we feel has been sought after for some time. We cannot wait to open the doors and welcome in our regular and new diners."

Sadly Nick, the Council will require them to conjure up a car park underground. That will be an engineering achievement!
