Update - January 2015

Here's a lovely piece of news. Did you know that Azzurro is one of Manchester's Top Ten Italian Restaurants? Well, it is - and here's the proof...


Back in 2004, Emil and Anna converted an old barber shop in bohemian West Didsbury, and opened Azzurro's doors. As Didsbury's only independent Italian eatery, this small, intimate venue makes a welcome change from the Italian chains.

Chef Patron Emil personally prepares every plate of food that is served. His hearty, flavoursome Italian fare is beautifully presented but never pretentious, and it’s not hard to see why Azzurro has become a firm favourite of so many.

In this unique family-run restaurant, the blackboard plays an important role as this is where market-fresh fish and seafood dishes feature. Keeping these specials on the board and not on the menu means that only the freshest produce available is used. Take a peek at an example of their blackboard specials.

Azzurro is Harden's Guide recommended and recently featured in the Manchester Evening News as one of the top ten Italian restaurants in Manchester.
