    Have a meal to remember at Sunderland's Italian restaurants

    When it comes to Italian restaurants, Sunderland has something for everyone. For a quality meal, head down to Bellini on Dovedale Road in the Seaburn neighbourhood. Seaburn, as its name suggests, is located right on the coast of the North Sea, and that means pescetarians are in for a true treat. Why not sample the fruits of the sea with the gamberoni con aglio – gorgeous, fleshy king prawns made in a delicious parsley, white wine and garlic butter sauce. If you'd prefer something a little more meaty, you can always go for a true classic like spaghetti carbonara, or the beautiful penne della casa if you’re vegetarian. Traditional Italian pizzas like pepperoni, pesto chicken and spinach, and chilli-infused calzones are all also on the menu, so you really will have plenty to choose from at this jewel in the crown of Sunderland's Italian restaurants.

    Indulge in dessert at Sunderland's Italian restaurants

    The North East is known for being a little bit chilly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some delicious Italian ice cream all year round. Sunderland’s Italian restaurants offer gelato in a huge variety of flavours including chocolate, pistachio and lemon, alongside more substantial Italian desserts like tartufo and tiramisu. It’s safe to say that even the most discerning dessert fanatic will have a hard time deciding what to have at Sunderland's Italian restaurants! But if you're already too full from the delectable starters and main courses on offer at Sunderland's Italian restaurants, then why not simply ask your server for an Italian coffee as a pick-me-up? And should you fancy a tipple, an after-dinner liqueur such as a limoncello or an amaretto is ideal for cleansing your palate and satisfying that urge for a post-meal treat.
