About The Italian Retro

The Italian Retro is about as charming an Italian restaurant as you’ll find anywhere in South Shields. Exposed brick walls and rustic wooden flooring combine with low-lighting to produce a dining space that lends itself perfectly to flavours of the Italian kitchen. Each plate of food at The Italian Retro is nothing short of beautiful to look at and to taste, and the produce used to create them is always fresh and very often locally-sourced. To be found on Stanhope Road, this is a genuine South Shields gem and it’s worth the trip even from Newcastle. Reserve a table now and see what all the fuss is about.
