Further Information

Always a joy, Linguine’s zuppa del giorno is also always vegetarian and a great place to start your meal at this new Italian restaurant in Sale, south of Manchester. The house king prawns are also a winner, sauteed in garlic, chilli butter and dressed with a lemon sauce. Keeping the fresh seafood theme going, indulge in some fresh mussels cooked in a rustic chilli and tomato sauce, or go for the smoked Scottish salmon with pink peppercorns and dill. If you’re here at Linguine’s Northenden Road restaurant with a larger group, go for the antipasto misto platter, loaded with Italian meats and cheeses, grilled Mediterranean vegetables, served with salad and freshly baked bread.

The main event at the latest addition to Sale’s clutch of quality restaurants is just as authentic and simply composed, with a long list of pasta and risotto dishes regional character that puts similar Italian restaurants in Greater Manchester to shame. Linguine’s namesake pasta comes in two forms: the Altino combines king prawns, cherry tomatoes, fresh chilli, olives and capers, while the linguine al granchio uses crab meat, spring onions, ginger, sundried tomatoes for a robust, piquant dish. Capping it all off, pizza, chicken, fish and meat dishes round out Linguine’s comprehensive offering.

I book Linguine's for last Sat night as I had been there before with a friend about six months ago and had a nice meal and the food was great. I took my family this time , two adults and two children ( teenagers ) . We booked as its normally really busy but this Sat it was really quiet . We were given a table that was near the bar area so I asked could we taken another table as it wasn't a great place people walking past all the time . They then went to put us on the table right next to the door when there was a table closer to the window and away from the door so I did ask could we have this one and they were happy to give it to us so that was fine . We then waited for someone to come and take our drinks order for about 10 mins. both my children only drink water so I asked for a jug of water and had to wait over 15 mins to get it and asked four times . In the end I had to get the managers attention to ask for the water. I could understand if it was a cocktail and they were really busy ! When the food finally came it was ok the starter was nice - ribs and garlic bread. Both children had Pizza which was ok but wouldn't rush back for one if im honest I have had better from the supermarket so was disappointed. We had a chicken salad and had to ask for the dressing which seemed to be missing which they did bring in the end. The service was slow and the food was ok but nothing great and wouldn't rush back which is a shame as the last time I went it was lovely . When we paid the bill the lady came over with a bottle of wine and apologies for the service and the delays which was nice of her but didn't change the fact that the over all experience was poor. I think they must have had new staff or new owner not sure but wouldn't rush to go back at this stage .

We are regular visitors to Linguine. We love it !! The food is excellent and the service is warm and friendly. The only suggested improvement would be to update the dessert menu - they are lovely but the same choices have been on there for a while now.

We both had a steak with a cream peppercorn and brandy sauce, which were cooked to perfection the space was fabulous , the vegetables perfectly cooked and the service was both friendly and efficient. We had gone to rest the place out with a view to having a family occasion there, we booked for a party of 10 based on what we saw and what we had. The owner has promised us he will make us a tiramisu for our party. We love this restaurant.

We really love this restaurant. The food is wonderful and it has a personal friendly feeling that you don't find in many places these days. This time I had these amazing polenta fritas and garlicky dip to start with. Just so delicious and herby. If you book on line we would recommend double checking your reservation by phone, as its popularity means it could be oversubscribed at busy times. Truly it is well worth treating yourselves and cracking open a bottle of Prosecco!:))

Lovely service as usual in the buzzing Linguine. Reservations essential. The cheesy garlic bread was delicious as ever and 1 portion is perfect for two. My friends chicken marsala and my chicken cacciatore were delicious and contained huge portions of chicken.

The restaurant did not have our reservation which meant that we were asked to move tables after we were initially seated. This wasn't ideal but they did compensate that by offering a bottle of champagne for the price of a bottle of prosecco. The service was overall good and attentive. The food was excellent. After a shaky start to the dining experience, the food was the highlight which is what you want from a restaurant. The inslata caprese was served with rocket rather than basil but it was still enjoyable. The linguine was excellent, full of flavour, fresh and cooked incredibly well.

The restaurant was buzzing on a Saturday night and booking is essential. The garlic bread with cheese starter we shared was the best I have ever tasted and the chicken risotto was delicious with lots of chicken. Service was friendly and we will certainly be returning. The only reason I didn't give 5 out of 5 is the lighting which is incredibly bright diminishing the atmosphere somewhat!

Food was excellent and, service (at the table) prompt and efficient. Portion size sensible and not too large. However, seating arrangements not satisfactory. Seated next to entrance door with draft blowing in...however door needed to be open as it was a very warm evening and no 'air con'...thus other customers having to fan themselves to keep cool. We booked about 6 weeks ago and told, on arrival, we had to sit next to the door as no other table available........which of course from the customer perspective is not acceptable. Being seated so close to the entrance (against the entrance door) is not a welcoming approach from the management. Finally, in trying to pack the restaurant so full, customers were almost wedged into seats. Thus, in summary, as far as 'the meal experience' is concerned.... the manager/owner needs to consider comfort of customers....just as much as the food itself. Restaurant dining is not solely about the food, but the whole dining experience.

A lovely restaurant, with polite and attentive staff. The food was excellent - Mussels, huge ribs, fillet steak, pasta and pizza were just some of the choices made by our party - and every one delicious. Prices are very reasonable - party of 8, for starters, main course, a couple of deserts, wine, beer and coffees - £163. Very impressed and will certainly return.
