Established in 17th May 2021, L’Aquila is a small restaurant in Manchester. Focused on core values such as quality, taste and sustainability, our mission is to bring delicious recipes to life using seasonal and quality ingredients sourced from small, artisan producers as much as possible.
Our homemade food is accompanied by an ever changing selection of natural, organic, biodynamic wines from small Italian producers, local craft beers and sustainable soft drinks and spirits.
All the team at L’Aquila is fundamental in delivering a good service to the diners. We all work together to make customers feel welcome, treating them with great care and respect while gracefully serving an excellent meal in a friendly and inviting atmosphere.
Using only the freshest seasonal & regional Italian ingredients, the menu is uniquely inviting and delicious, freshly made pasta and risotto alongside delicately prepared fish and heartier meat dishes. Something for every day and something for every special occasion. As the Italians say… food is how we express our love.
Thank you for a lovely evening. The food was beautiful and the staff were all very helpful & friendly. It is by far the nicest Italian restaurant in Prestwich. We live nice and local, so we will be back soon to enjoy more food and drinks, thank you again L’aquila!!
Wow! The food here is amazing, we went for the first time and it was so good we went again the next night. Highly recommend the steak Al pepe, and the meatball starter. Staff were very friendly and extremely welcoming, the food was well prepared and seasoned. Cannot wait to go again, our new favourite Italian restaurant!
From the staff to the food. I love this place, my family loves this place and my fussy 14 year old too. Have always had a 5 star experience. The only down side is so much choice is what to choose. As each dish is exquisite and have never been let down.
Our first visit to the restaurant. We were welcomed by extremely friendly staff. The decor and ambience was fantastic and very pleasant dining environment. The food was fantastic and the service equalled this. Would highly recommend L’Aquila.
Such a lovely restaurant and honestly really nice people. Also they absolutely smash the food in here every time I go. Always get a warm welcome and feels so chilled. Very lucky to have Laquila in Prestwich.
What a delightful place. Recommended by a friend who came with us. Staff are amazing- warm, welcoming and just lovely. Atmosphere was great. Food first class. Will be back very soon. Thanks for a lovely evening.
We had a meal there for my nice Erin and wow what can I say the staff were excellent in every way they went above and beyond the food was to die for so for anyone reading this it’s a must and I will 100% be going back.
We have now been 3 times to this restaurant and have never been disappointed. The food is excellent and the staff will go the extra mile to make sure you have a memorable experience. In our opinion, the best restaurant we have ever been. Would absolutely recommend.
The service outstanding, the food amazing, the space a little cramped but worth it for the experience, really good quality food and flavorful to say the least and a nice extensive menu and decent cocktail menu as well.
