Manchester’s favourite Italian is now doing a Sunday roast with unlimited gravy

Don Giovanni’s new Sunday lunch menu launches this weekend - and it sounds epic

It’s the oldest independently-owned Italian in Manchester, having recently celebrated its 36th year serving authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of the city.

Don Giovanni’s classic Italian dishes include all our favourites, from creamy spaghetti carbonara to eye-catching seafood platters, all cooked with Mediterranean flair and wonderfully fresh ingredients.

And now comes the news we’ve all been waiting for – they’re about to launch a Sunday roast menu.

From Sunday 4th October, you’ll be able to tuck into arguably the best meal of the week in the stylish settings of the St Peter’s Square restaurant, with huge windows offering captivating views of the bustling city. 

And, in true Italian style, they’re not doing anything by halves.

The new Sunday roast offers a choice of one or two courses (£16.95 or £19.95), and comes with unlimited gravy. Oh yes.

You can choose from succulent lamb shoulder, chicken supreme or topside tenderloin of beef, served with crisp golden Yorkshire puddings in a sharing platter heaped in the middle of the table, so you can pick your own.

It’s served with all the traditional accompaniments, too, including thrice cooked roasties, creamy cauliflower cheese, sauteed shredded cabbage, parsnips and imperator carrots, and accompanied by an unlimited amount of Don Giovanni’s special gravy.

Then if you want to go for pudding – which you surely do, because it’s Sunday, after all – you can choose between three classic options.

Don Giovanni’s sticky toffee pudding is made with sweet dates and raisins, topped with chopped sugar-coated walnuts and drizzled with a sweet warm toffee sauce.

The classic Italian tiramisu, meanwhile, is made with homemade savoiardi biscuits soaked in coffee liqueur, layered with a creamy mascarpone mousse. Tiramisu means “pick me up” or “cheer me up”, and you’ll see why.

Or chocoholics might be tempted by the rich chocolate fudge cake, served with a scoop of classic vanilla ice cream.

The Sunday lunch will be served until they run out – which from the sound of that menu could be sooner rather than later, so you might want to get in quick.

And if you’re still worried about eating out in public, it’s worth noting that Don Giovanni has implemented rigorous safety measures to ensure guests can dine without risk. 

There’s a one-way system throughout the restaurant as well as hand sanitisers, plus the staff will be using gloves, visors, temperature checks and screen shields between the booths, making it one of the safest places in Manchester to enjoy a meal out. 

There’s no better way to spend your Sunday.

Don Giovanni’s Sunday lunch launches on 4th October, priced at £16.95 for one course or £19.95 for two courses.
