An award-winning Italian cafe forced to move out of Salford is keeping its former customers happy by making weekend deliveries.

Lupo Caffé Italiano had to relocate to Prestwich after five years in Chapel Street, Salford.

Owner Nico Pasquali was given notice by his landlord so the 33-year old from Rome has moved his café to Unit 65 Mountheath Trading Estate, Prestwich.

The café makes authentic Italian pizzas, pastries, cakes and provisions.

It supports local businesses by directly sourcing produce from Manchester veg markets and Lancashire farmers.

Mr Pasquali explained: “All menu items are popular, but especially the Zeppole di San Guieppe as you can’t find them anywhere else.”

Zeppole di San Guieppe is a filled choux pastry. The café fillings include custard and pistachio cream.
