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.
