You’ve been working hard for months and haven’t had a proper knees-up with your colleagues since Christmas, so why not get together and celebrate the summer? At this grand restaurant on Manchester’s King Street, you’ll be perfectly placed to enjoy a feast of Italian food. Owned by one of the country’s most successful celebrity chefs, this place serves up hearty food full of the flavours of Italy.
In a magnificent grade II listed building that was formerly a bank, the restaurant is set over three floors – the former Banking Hall, with old booths to dine in; the mezzanine level, with its spectacular view of the whole restaurant, and the original Vault in the basement, which has been converted into a super-cool private dining room.
Once you’re shown to your spot, its time for the feasting to begin. The first course of this special summer menu is a feast of antipasti served on planks, perfect for sociable sharing to get the party started. Munch on crispy squid or our famous seafood linguine. The choice of mains if full of hearty and tasty rustic Italian fare like Jamie's personal favourite chicken dish and of course, the pasta dishes are a strong point, served in the Italian way.
Be sure to leave room for one of the indulgent desserts – from squidgy chocolate brownie to light and refreshing sorbet. Of course you can order your choice of drinks to accompany the meal – from carefully selected cool beers, to sparkling prosecco and the excellent house wines. Here comes summer!
