There’s no shortage of Italian restaurant to try on the Fylde Coast but here’s five to try with a difference:
With its checked tablecloths, straw-clad bottles of Chianti, a Venetian mural and liberal doses of red, white and green, Mammas is the ultimate in traditional Italian dining. It first opened its doors in 1980 and has been under the same ownership ever since. Great deals on offer too.
There’s nobody else doing Italian food quite like this on the Fylde Coast. Father Tony handles front-of-house with son Salvatore ringing the changes in the kitchen. Try the five-course ‘Passion’ tasting menu with an optional wine flight for a modern, fine dining take on Italian food.
Light and Bright
This bright and modern Mediterranean and Italian restaurant is part of the brand new Mill Farm Sports Village, home to AFC Fylde. There’s a great outdoor terrace for the summer months and just below is probably the best sports bar in the north west, Bradleys.
It’s all about the atmosphere at Tiggis with an open kitchen running along one side of the main dining room. Romano has been running the show here since 1981 and with the buzz at every service you could be in Sorrento, not St Annes.
Take a trip out to Guy’s, south of Garstang, and enjoy a pre- or post-prandial stroll along the banks of the Lancaster Canal. The restaurant is part of Guy's Thatched Hamlet, a leisure complex that incorporates , a cricket ground, crown green bowling and accommodation in 65 rooms.
