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 .

Staff at Linguine were friendly and welcoming as usual and our meals lived up to our expectations. We will no doubt be visiting Linguine again, and would be happy to recommend this Italian restaurant to our friends and family.

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!:))
