About Amore Cucina and Bar
Stylish Italian dining in Whitefield
Amore Cucina serves contemporary Italian food in an airy, elegant restaurant space.
Situated north of Manchester city centre in Whitefield, this is the ideal spot for dining that balances chic with relaxed. The restaurant showcases chef Jacques Hilton’s take on classic Italian dishes, both via the main menus and the ‘Venetian tapas’ (cicchetti) menu.
While dining, you can enjoy the view from the curved floor-to-ceiling windows or watch waiters shake cocktails in the central bar.
Italian classics and Venetian tapas
At Amore Cucina, Chef Hilton aims to blend the best of British and Italian ingredients to create a food experience to remember.
The main menu includes Italian favourites such as Pizza Margherita, Veal Milanese and Tagliatelle Napoletana, plus a range of steaks with sauces. Desserts include much-loved treats like Tiramisu, Crostata di Limoncello and gelatos.
If you’re keen to try out tapas, Italian style, then the cicchetti menu offers small plate dishes to share. Options include veal sausages, parmesan chicken, brushetti, mixed cheeses and olives. It’s obvious that cicchetti was born in a waterside city, as seafood nibbles like crispy squid, sea bass and clam linguine play a starring role.
The restaurant bar serves authentic Italian beers, specially selected wines and original cocktail creations, plus aperitivos (Italian pre-dinner drinks).
