Promising to bring back the excitement to Italian cooking in Manchester, Sugo Pasta Kitchen has done just that at its Altrincham restaurant. Since opening next to foodie haven Altrincham Market in July 2015, rave reviews have come thick and fast for Sugo’s southern Italian heart-warming pasta dishes. The menu boasts many authentic creations with two house specialities: orecchiette maritate with a beef shin, pork shoulder and nduja ragu; and cavatelli with king prawns, baby squid, mussels, cherry tomatoes, chilli and ginger – with specific instruction for this only to be eaten with a spoon. Sugo has decided to open up its second restaurant in Manchester’s original ‘Little Italy’ neighbourhood in Ancoats. Home to a large community of Italian immigrants in the early 20th Century, the area’s food offerings used to reflect that with a number of Italian eateries and gelato shops – Sugo is set to resurrect that cultural heritage. Adding to the blossoming foodie scene in Ancoats, Sugo will open early next year. The new 60-seater digs will be in Sawmill Court, one of Ancoats’ still-under-construction buildings just off the square home to Se7en Brothers, Second City and Rudy’s Pizza, and soon to open fish and chip shop Street Urchin.

Opening early 2018, Sawmill Court, Ancoats, Manchester. Follow @Sugo_Pasta for updates.
