Due Amici – two friends in Italian, as we’re sure you’ll already known – is an Italian restaurant in Walkden that, frankly, you’ll want to bring a few more than just a pair of pals to. Their food is considered to be right up there among the best Italian found anywhere in Salford, and if you take the trip into the centre of Walkden and their outlet on Bridgewater Road, it won’t be hard to see why they are held in such high regard. They deal in the big hitters and the favourites of the Italian canon: bruschetta, beef carpaccio, calamari and mussels to start, pasta and risotto to follow – we’d go for the traditional classics of lasagna, carbonara and spaghetti with meatballs – and a top notch main to crown it all off. Pizzas come with all the trimmings, fish includes Scottish salmon, roast monkfish and grilled seabass and meat specialities are everything from sirloin steak to lamb shank and crispy roasted duck.

An excellent restaurant. The staff were, again, very friendly, helpful and gave a real happy feel to the place. The food was quite superb. I had calamari for starters as well as a lasagne for my mains whilst my wife had mushrooms and a fillet steak and salad whilst our son also had the mushrooms but chose the cannelloni. All the meal were excellent. I can't criticise the restaurant, staff, food etc... at all. A lovely experience and one we will repeat sooner rather than later.
Our party of seventeen visited Due Amici on the 30th December and all commented that the food was excellent and that the service at this very busy time was good.
The restaurant is lovely, the staff are great and the food was excellent. We visited early on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant itself felt a little chilly on arrival otherwise everything was perfect. The mixed fish kebab with scallops and halibut is fantastic.
