For melt-in-the-mouth marvels, make Rotolini your go-to
HEAVEN is a place on earth, and that place has recently been extended – from Altrincham to Bramhall and now onwards and upwards to Ramsbottom; all three locations of southern Italian eating experts Tre Ciccio. The ‘chubby friends’ are dishing up great roast chicken and properly delicious pizza, with both classic and gourmet toppings.
Following our first delightful encounter with Neapolitan-style foldy-uppy floppy bases, we didn’t think pizza could be improved upon.

Sounds like just the man to rustle up a sweet version for the Dolci section of the menu. We’re waiting, Luigi, we’re waiting…
