Lupo Caffe Italiano

142 Chapel St


M3 6AF

Great news for those of us who lamented the loss of Lupo Caffe Italiano from Chapel Street after their landlord served them notice. Owner, Nico Pasquali, has bounced back on the banks of the River Irwell in a radically transformed Nineties office block within easy reach of MediaCIty. An award winner in the 2015 Manchester Food and Drink Awards, they still serve perhaps the best coffee in town and a range of homely food such as the lasagne, above.

This daytime cafe (closed Sundays) cooks simple but succulent dishes on the premises that might include lasagne (pictured), Er Provola (toasted bread topped with asiago cheese, Italian ham, double eggs, grilled courgette and cherry tomatoes), pasta with caramelised radicchio and mushroom and the creamiest tiramisu in town. And it's not going to cost an arm and a leg.
