Nonna’s Pasta has hung up its apron only three months after announcing it was taking up permanent residency at Deansgate Square.

The American-Italian restaurant and bar, famed for its freshly made pasta, originally launched in Manchester City centre’s affluent neighbourhood as a temporary pop up in October last year, but proved so popular that in April they announced they had decided to stay.

A new menu was even crafted to celebrate the news. New additions included lobster carbonara, lasagne spirali - spiralled lasagne for two people to share - and chicken ate the pizza - a chicken parmo - with buttermilk fried chicken coated in marinara sauce and topped with melted mozzarella and pesto. They also launched a new cocktail menu to coincide.

Located at the bottom of East Tower at Deansgate Square, the homely restaurant claimed: “Innovation is our specialty. Give us a normal carbonara and we elevate it to a Carbonara with lobster bisque, prawns, scampi and grated cured egg yolk.”

But the restaurant recently posted on social media that “Nonna is hanging up her apron for now and taking a break.”

The restaurant alluded to it not being quite the end for the restaurant saying: “We are not sure when and where but Nonna will be back.”
