Italian Restaurants in Hale
1. WOOD Restaurant British, Modern restaurant in Manchester Jack Rosenthal Street - M15
MasterChef 2015 winner Simon Wood opened his debut open-kitchen concept two years later, offering only tasting menus. It is achieving solid ratings now that the initial hype has died down, with fans largely agreed that it’s “expensive, but great for a special night out”. A data manager from Oldham before his TV triumph, Simon is still refining his venue, most recently converting its private dining room into ‘Homage’ (rhyming with ‘fromage’), a tasting bar to pair cheeses and chutneys with wine and beer. A spinoff restaurant ran in Chester for two years, and the WOODKraft daytime café operates in Cheltenham.
2. Sugo Italian restaurant in Altrincham 22 Shaw's Rd, Altrincham - WA14
“A real asset to Altrincham”, near the market, serving “authentic pasta dishes” with a Puglian slant (plus wines by the carafe) “in a canteen environment”. (In 2018 they launched a spin-off, in Ancoats, that’s double the size and while “both branches are great, the original just has the edge”.) “Some of the dishes, especially the strozzapreti, are just to die for”.
3. The Creameries Italian restaurant in Manchester 406 Wilbraham Road, Chorlton - M21
“A good-value short menu, which makes clever use of seasonal produce, plus an imaginative wine list” have created a strong local reputation for this restaurant, wine bar and bottle shop (named for the Edwardian creamery it occupies), where you eat on benches. Many of the wines are of the hip, low intervention variety.
