More about Giuliano-Manchester, Wilmslow

While Giuliano offers everything you’d expect from an Italian kitchen, the restaurant likes to keep things interesting with a host of special deals and events and it’s this approach that makes Giuliano an important part of the life of Handforth and not just another Italian. There’s live music every week, the chef’s change up their specials on a weekly basis, and deals like discounted bottles of prosecco on Friday nights and a kids-eat-free Sunday afternoon offer make deciding on where to eat easy if you’re in and around this town near Wilmslow.

Giuliano’s menu is curated by a Sicilian chef with over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry, a pedigree that means you get to begin your authentic Italian feast at this Handforth institution with stuzzichini as well as antipasti – Tuscan ciabatta, focaccia, and garlic dough balls served with aged balsamic vinegar and aromatic EVO as well as antipasto misto (chef’s selection of Italian cured meats, veggies and more), Sicilian pate, spicy king prawns and so on. Giuliano’s stonebaked pizzas are a family favourite at this Wilmslow Road restaurant, but the real magic happens with the incredibly on point pasta dishes and, moreover, the meat main courses and grilled steaks, poultry and fish.

Fantastic staff and food. Great choice of authentic Italian cuisine. Very reasonable prices and usually some specials available. The early bird Monday to Thursday before 7.00 pm is particularly good value.
