Salvi’s has opened its new restaurant and deli on Deansgate Square

Much-loved Italian Salvi’s has opened its brand new branch on the posh Deansgate Square development. The new spot combines a restaurant, deli, bar and an exhibition space too.

It also boasts a large covered and heated terrace area for year-round al fresco dining and drinking. Owners say that the new site is in a ‘pre-launch’ phase, before getting up to full speed in the coming weeks.

Run by the Cecco family, owner Maurizio Cecco is celebrating 10 years of being in business in the city. It opened its first restaurant on High Street in the Northern Quarter. It was then followed by another site in the Corn Exchange, its ‘mozzarella bar and restaurant’ with a deli store adjacent to it.

The new branch, at the foot of one of the Deansgate Square towers, features a huge new pizza oven, and will serve everything from cicchetti - Italian small plates - to authentic Italian gelato. It will also specialise in protected ‘DOP’ products, which are produced only in certain regions and under certain conditions across Italy, from tomatoes and hams to parmesan cheese.

The new site is among a number of new openings for the development, including The Green Lab, a spin-off restaurant from the health studio and takeaway salad and juice bar in the Northern Quarter. Run by Nikita and Kanika Banga, it opened its doors last week.

There’s also a General Store, which also has branches in Ancoats and Stretford, as well as the cocktail bar Atomeca, founded by the Schofield brothers who run Schofield’s on Little Quay Street.
