Italian Restaurants in Manchester
In the late 1800's, thousand of Italians made new homes amongst the mills and factories in the run down area of Manchester city centre called Ancoats, or 'Little Italy' as it became affectionately known.
Whilst the inhabitants became the pioneers of the modern day British ice cream industry they also introduced generations of Mancunian Italians to the city.
Today there are over 120 Italian restaurants and pizzerias in Manchester and the surrounding area.
Successful Italian Restaurant chains like San Carlo, Piccolino, Gusto, Croma, Felicini, Pesto, The Olive Press, and Est, Est, Est all started in the area, whilst there's hundreds of excellent independent Italian ristorantes in Manchester too.
Whether you're looking for fine dining Italian cuisine or a cheap pizzeria, fresh made pasta or gluten and wheat free doughs, there are Italian restaurants in Manchester to suit everybody's requirements.
