Description: Veeno is an Italian Wine Café based in the UK serving our family produced Sicilian wines & authentic Italian spuntini. All of our wines come from our award-winning family vineyard in Sicily where 3 generations of our family have produced wine. This allows us to ensure the highest quality from the grape to the glass. We source all our cold meat cuts, breads and cheeses from Italy too.

Poor Seda (our lovely waitress), it may have been her first time working at Veeno and she did her very best in the face of some adversity. She gave us a lovely welcome and was very accommodating (probably pleased to see us as we were the only patrons). However she did manage to drop what sounded like a bottle of wine (or something significant anyway) not the best first impression to her new employers!
Food was simple and excellent, especially the delicious fresh bread.
Shame about the extremely loud noises emanating from the toilets! Not what you’re thinking! They had ‘maintenance’ going on so lots of drilling and grinding!
Would return to see it on another day and hopefully to see Seda having a better one!

We’ve been to Veeno this afternoon......
We were served by Indre and she was lovely, very personable and attentive. Nothing was too much trouble.
However, the lady who appeared in charge of Veeno looked and sounded completely stressed out (although it wasn’t overly busy but it was nearly full) and wasn’t nice to her staff.
This was uncomfortable to witness. She was barking orders at them at top note which could be heard by all and seemed totally unnecessary given the number of people in there.
In addition the size of olive oil and balsamic is very stingy!!!
We had to ask for more on two occasions and at that point Indre brought us the bottles rather than the tiny bowls that came with the bread.

My Fiance booked us in for a Selezione Wine Tasting on Saturday afternoon.

We were running late due to typical Manchester Traffic but I rang ahead and let the restaurant know, they were absolutely fine and on arrival we were greeted by the loveliest bubbliest lady I have met in a long time, Seda.

She sat us down at our table, explained how it all worked and set about getting us a glass of Prosecco to enjoy whilst waiting for our sputini (food board) to be made as this needed to be eaten along side the different wines.

Each wine was explained by Seda and we were advised which food to pair it with. We weren't rushed but the service wasn't too slow either and even when it got incredibly busy with a hen party, Seda still continued our wine tasting with a big smile of her face.

All in all, a lovely afternoon. We'll be back very soon! :)

We went to Chester earlier in the week and tried veeno , we like it that much we had to visit the one in our home town .
We both love wine and over time we have tried some real awful ones so to find a wine bar that seems to serve endless amounts of wine we like we feel we have hit the jackpot !
Inore attended to us and was VERY helpful and knowledgeable, we both went for a wine tasting and shared a meat & cheese board .
We will definitely be returning and if your in Manchester an fancy a change please give it a try it’s really so lovely .

I used to love this bar but I’ll be very wary from now on. The waitress brought our drinks and offered us a complementary bowl of olives. When we asked for the bill the olives had been added. When we questioned it, the waitress went to check then came back and said they weren’t free after all.
