Ancoats Little Italy

A canalside neighbourhood that’s suddenly become the place to be. With a wave of a regeneration wand, this former textile district is now a hit with resident and visiting foodies.

Way back before it became a favourite hang-out for food-obsessed Millennials, Ancoats was known as Little Italy in honour of the many Italian immigrants who came to live here during the late 19th century. Honour that heritage with superb pizza at Rudy’s Neapolitan Pizza, one of the first transformational eateries to set up show here in recent years. Or, if pasta is more your Mediterranean dish of choice, load up on lunchtime pasta at Sugo Pasta Kitchen. For those more in the market for morning coffee, head to Pollen and grab a cruffin while you’re at it (that’s a croissant-slash-muffin, btw). Independent bakeries are another highlight of the area, so think ahead to tomorrow’s breakfast and grab some sourdough en route to meet your mates at a low-key bar.
