Wonderfully Italian and just off Albert Square
Veeno is located just off Albert Square on the walkway between the Town Hall and Deansgate,passing the city's homage to Abraham Lincoln on route.
And its quite a discovery.
Nestled between 2 Manchester attractions, John Rylands Library and The Hidden Gem, Veeno has quickly established itself.
Remarkably simple in its layout, this new addition to the packed hospitality scene in the city offers an intimate, friendly hideaway slap bang in the centre of town.
With a maximum of just 70 covers(inc some standing)and an additional 20 or so outside in clement weather, the overiding feel is one of authentic independence.
This corner site,has a very open feelabout it with its combination of benches,tables for 2/4 and large 'barrel'tables all seperated by racks selling wine and selected Italian delicacies.
Veeno is most definitely a place for the more discerning drinker of wine.Its all about the quality and not just quantity,although the two are not always mutually exclusive..As we learned..
The list boasts exclusively Italian (Sicilian specifically)wines with 8 Whites,8 Reds,2 Rose's and good choice of Prosecco,Cocktails and Beers.
After our first bottle of a lovely Catarratto,we decided to snack and choose a house platter to share.The Bruschette platter.Beautifully presented and delicious to boot.
Although there was plenty for two, we also greedily ordered a Formaggi platter,encouraged by the Neopolitan Opera now playing.
By now we were in full swing.Enrico Caruso ,Gianluigi Buffon and Alitalia.We were completely hooked.
Veeno is unique in Manchester.It reminds us all of those trips to Italy over the years,but your are thinking 'yes but what about the weather'? Well on our visit it was a lovely, warm day..So there..
Price point was a very modest £45 (less 25% off with your card) and we both wandered into the streets of Palermo..Oops sorry Manchester.'Divertiti'.
