Casa Italia Didsbury is an Italian restaurant but there’s not a pizza in sight. The focus here is on quality pasta dishes with a few other main dishes thrown in for good measure. Expect classics like lasagne and cannelloni as well as specialities such as orecchiette with ‘nduja and taleggio or tortelloni filled with scallops and prawns.
The real highlight, though, comes via the deli side of the business with platters of Italian cheeses and cold cuts as well as beautiful olives, artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes and the like.
Pizza lovers needn’t be too disappointed as you can still get an approximation of your fix with piadine, Italian flatbreads topped with all sorts of goodies such as mortadella, aubergine and ricotta.
The atmosphere is laid back and with its location on Wilmslow Road in the heart of Didsbury, Casa Italia makes an ideal spot for lunch. Especially as the coffee is so good.
