About The Italian Retro
About the restaurant
Newcastle may have no shortage of Italian restaurants, but The Italian Retro is a name that stands out from the rest, offering gourmet Italian cuisine in a stylish setting. Located on Stanhope Road over in South Shields, The Italian Retro attracts diners from all over the area with is menu full of Italian favourites with a fine dining twist. Before tucking into your main, try some slow-roasted pork belly or the pesce misto (sauteed garlic king prawns, scallops and mussels on a bed of mixed leaves). Then feast on some pizza, pasta or a rustic meat or seafood dish like the pollo diavola (strips of chicken breast simmered in a spiced napoli sauce with peppers, mushrooms and chorizo), rounded off with one of The Italian Retro’s decadent and beautifully presented desserts.
