A new boozy pasta pop-up is coming to Manchester next week, bringing wine-infused dishes to Deansgate Square.

Called Nonna’s Pasta, the concept will be moving into the kitchen of The Green Lab on Owen Street and taking over the day-to-day running of the restaurant until Christmas.

With prices starting from just £4, starters include the likes of taleggio and pesto arancini, white wine-infused gamberoni (prawns), freshly prepared mussels and plump burrata with truffle cream, proscuitto ham and rocket.

As for the main event, mouthwatering pasta dishes are infused with red wine, white wine or vodka – offering a tasteful twist on some solid Italian classics.
