Tuck into top-class Italian food at Blackburn's restaurants. During the 1970s, Blackburn's buses received a makeover, giving them a red, white and green colour scheme - and the nickname 'the Italian flag'. These days, the tricolour has gone, but Italy's presence in the centre of town remains strong, mainly thanks to Blackburn's superb array of Italian restaurants. From Darwen to Belthorn, Italian restaurants around Blackburn serve up some exquisite creations, with seafood, pasta, meat, salads, pizzas, and decadent desserts there to enjoy. And with Quandoo, reserving tables couldn't be easier.
