Open all day, every day Café Italia is a family run business which brings a taste of Italy to Bolton. It’s close by Doffcocker Lodge nature reserve and is open right through the day from 8.30am (10am on Sundays) for breakfast, coffee and a cake, a light lunch, afternoon tea or a full three-course evening meal - the choice is yours. The main menu covers all the Italian classics with a great choice of pizza, pasta and risotto as well as plenty of meat and fish main courses. And Naples-born chef-patron Vito has recently redesigned the menu adding in some original Neapolitan dishes. There’s also a Bambini menu for kids and an in-house baker whose signature treats range from Nutella cheesecake to classic Victoria sponge. Cafe Italia has al fresco dining too and an upstairs function room that can seat up to 60 with private bar and great views. Fully licensed, Cafe Italia is open until 9pm Monday to Friday, 9.30pm Saturday and 8pm Sunday.
Cafe Italia hosts quarterly Italian evenings with a 3 or 4 course meal and entertainment for a set price. These are advertised a couple of months in advance through the website and Facebook.
