George Orwell fans will instantly recognise Wigan from his classic The Road to Wigan Pier, but the Orwell landmark isn't the only reason to visit this vibrant Lancashire town. Wigan's rich history stretches all the way from Roman times to the English Civil War, the Industrial Revolution and beyond. And like the rest of Great Britain, it's clear that Wigan has the same deep and abiding love of Italian restaurants that has held the entire island in thrall for decades.
Italian food is a real crowd pleaser, so booking a table at an Italian restaurant in Wigan is a quick way to make everyone happy and stop endless debates over where to eat before they even start. It truly has something for everyone, from comforting carb-filled classics like pasta and risotto, the deep smoky tang of grilled meat or fish, healthy salads, and everyone's favourite infinitely variable pie: pizza. Italian restaurants are also quick to cater to special diets and restrictions, with everything from vegetarian to gluten-free offerings so that nobody ever needs to feel left out.
Everyone has their favourite Italian dishes and restaurants, and while Wigan's Italian chefs are happy to cater to your usual cravings, why not give different dishes a whirl? If you normally go for a pizza, try a fish course or a variety of antipasti for the table. If Italian food usually means a quick bowl of risotto on the go, why not book a table at one of Wigan's Italian restaurants and linger over several courses, from antipasti to dolci.
Many of Wigan's best Italian restaurants can be found dotted along Wallgate, right in the city centre, near to both of Wigan's rail stations, as well as its excellent shopping and nightlife. In fact, we can't think of a better way to start off a fun evening out with a fine Italian meal, or rest your tired feet after shopping with a soothing bowl of risotto and a glass of wine.
