Search begins for Italian Restaurant of the Year 2018
We are on the hunt for the best Italian Restaurant of 2018.
A pasta or a pizza? Spaghetti or penne? Pepperoni or anchovy? We all love to sit down to an Italian meal and, with thousands of Italian restaurants in the UK, we all have our favourite.
Now we want YOU to tell us which local restaurant gets your pick.
It could be because of the fresh and innovative cuisine, traditional-style dishes, select and exclusive dishes you can find in the only restaurant you use.
Perhaps you love the friendly staff, the traditional style or the outrageous decor of the restaurant?
Maybe it’s so much more than a place you go to for a pizza or a pasta?
We have drawn up a shortlist of restaurants and eateries that will compete for the title of Italian Restaurant of the Year 2018. The details of eligible restaurants will be published online until Friday, November 23, 2018.
