Nonna's Woodfired Pizza
Nonnas is a class act. Long before he ever opened the doors of the original branch, on Spencer Road, Darren Bradley was renowned in the North west as a pizza master – a true pizzaiolo – a guy who mainlined the traditions Italian pie with real verve and imagination.
Now, with the new destination on Shipquay Street also opened, Mr Bradley can bring his love affair with Italian pizza to even more people and, happily, he has also fashioned two lovely, artful, Italianate rooms in which to enjoy these cracking pies.
So, maybe begin the evening with some cicchetti, or some peperoncini, or some sourdough bruschetta with tomatoes, and then bring on the classics – the classic margherita, the Fungi; the sublime Spagnolo with local Corndale Farm chorizo, or the beautiful N’Duja. Thin bases, tactile with heat and sweetness, these are terrific pizzas.
There are some side dishes – black truffle fries; Caprese salad; crispy garlic bread – and there are great North West beers from Northbound, Lacada and Kinnegar, and great wines. Only problem is getting a table, but these pizzas are worth the wait.
