* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Expanding again to highlight how popular it is”“this already vast Britalian restaurant on the outskirts of Preston has just added an enormous extension (primarily a bar) into which you could probably fit The Ritz’s dining room” – and “the whole operation is remarkable given its size”. It’s the “very good and reasonably priced food” that draws the crowds (“your favourite pizzas and pastas”) “but it’s the specials menu where the most interest lies”, plus “stuff they don't cook” – ie oysters and “Italian charcuterie imported direct from the owning Bragagnini family’s homeland in Friuli, as is much of the wine”.

“Considering the number of covers [300, 100 of which are in the glazed extension], even on a regular day, it’s quite impressive that the kitchen maintains the quality it does” at the Braganini family’s “welcoming” local landmark, which is “constantly packed and busy every day”. “All the Britalian staples are to be had (you can be in and out in 20 minutes having had a pizza or pasta and a pint or a coke), or you can linger for hours enjoying a large platter of charcuterie, Fassona beef, excellent veal chops, calves’ brains, osso bucco etc, and indulge in the wine list” (which boasts 200 bins).

“The flagship of the Bragagnini family’s small group of restaurants in and around Preston continues being all things to all people”: “some have a pint, a garlic bread and pizza and are out within 20 minutes”, while others “pick their way through the Britalian crowd-pleasers on the menu to find the excellent charcuterie and pasta specials”. “The scale of the operation is mind-boggling”, too!
