“At Don Giovanni we integrate traditional Italian culture into every dish we create, making all of our own pizza, bread, ravioli, and desserts freshly in-house.” Don Giovanni is Manchester’s oldest Italian restaurant, established in 1984. Located on Oxford Street, in the heart of the city centre, these guys serve salads, antipasti, fishes, pastas and risotto, meats, and awesome pizzas. We’re personally obsessed with the prosciutto e funghi pizza, and if you like mushroom, you’ll be obsessed too!
They say home is where the heart is. I think home is where the good pizza is. HOME is Manchester’s centre for contemporary theatre, film, art, and music. They’ve got lots of shows and movies on, live concerts, and some of the best pizzas in Manchester. From quattro formaggi and florentina to four seasons and la reine, they’ve got all sorts of delicious pizza cooked with an English influence. Head for lunch or dinner before a movie or a show, or just grab a drink on their roof terrace for all those sunny Manchester days. Home is one of Manchester’s best institutions and one you don’t want to miss out!
This one’s a traditional Sardinian restaurant offering regional dishes based around the Mediterranean cuisine, and amazing pizzas.

It’s located within walking distance from lively bars of Altrincham, and it’s doubtless one our top spot for the best pizzas in Manchester.
Keep on with your Italian trip and travel to Naples. Tre Ciccio serves up a huge meny of classic, gourmet, and Neapolitan pizzas alongside Italian roast chicken and traditional antipasti dishes. It’s located in the charming Bramhall neighbourhood, a quick 40 minutes ride from the city centre, and trust us, it’s so worth it! The venue is decorated like a classic Italian restaurant, all brick walls, low lighting, and a warm atmosphere. Little tip: try the calzone Napoletano, it’s a folded pizza with salami, prosciutto cotto, fior di latte cheese, and basil – a real delight.
