Top Italian chef Maurizio Cecco has revealed plans to open a third Salvi’s location in Manchester, this time on Deansgate Square, as his successful restaurant brand marks ten years in the city.

Spanning a swanky new restaurant, bar, deli, terrace, and exhibition space, the new site is all set to become a brilliant new hub for Italian foodies.

Located in the luxury new Deansgate Square towers development, it joins successful new openings Atomeca and Deansgate General Stores in what is fast becoming a new must-visit quarter for gourmands.

Serving up a variety of southern Italian cuisine, from gelato to pizza and cicchetti alongside Italian wines, beers, spritz and a deli for takeaway ‘sfizio’, the new restaurant, bar and deli will make an excellent addition to the southern end of Deansgate.

New dishes will draw upon original family recipes created by Maurizio’s mother, Nonna Teresa, as well as from his native Naples. whilst others will nod to Salvi’s two pre-existing Manchester sites in the Corn Exchange and the Northern Quarter.

What’s more, there’ll even be pasta-making classes hosted here with the main man himself, taking place in the new covered and heated outdoor private dining space on the terrace – the first of its kind to be built in Manchester.

Guests will also be able to book the one-of-a-kind outdoor private dining space for their events and parties.

Having first begun life as a deli in the Corn Exchange a decade ago, Salvi’s has come a long way indeed: bringing an authentic slice of southern Italy through its restaurants and annual Italian food festival Festa Italiana.

Speaking on the new opening plans Maurizio Cecco, Managing Director of Salvi’s, said: “Manchester is our home and we’re always looking for new potential sites so this seemed too good to miss! Deansgate Square gives us the opportunity to bring together all the best aspects of Salvi’s, plus we can now roll out some new ideas that we’re really excited about.”
