Pesto Restaurant – Trafford Centre


On Friday evening hubby and I decided to go to Pesto which is in the Trafford Centre. This was the very first time we had visited a Pesto. I was looking forward to it as I had heard good things about it from my best friend. When we got there, we were quickly seated and handed our menus. What I love about Pesto is that it is an Italian restaurant, but the portions are served on small plates. Like an Italian Tapas ! Ideal restaurant for those people who want to try a few different dishes as they can never make up their mind….. yep that is me !

We decided we would have 2 dishes each and then 1 to share. I decided on deep fried Risotto balls and Hungarian beef stew. Hubby had a Risotto dish and Meatballs, and we shared a spicy potato dish. The dishes were typically priced under £4.00 which I thought was really good value. I have to say the food was delicious, and we quickly polished off our 5 dishes between us. And we even had room for dessert. I opted for the 3 mini puddings on one plate and hubby had a chocolate dish. Again all delicious and fresh tasting.

With soft drinks the bill came to £37.00 which I thought was good value for the quality of the meal. Our server was friendly and attentive throughout, and I loved the overall atmosphere of the restaurant. We will definitely return to Pesto next time we visit the Trafford Centre, and I think it will also be a good place to bring the kids as they can try different dishes.

I actually thought Pesto was a huge national chain, but they only have 6 restaurants, and we are lucky that 3 of them are local to us. Looking forward to trying the restaurants in Widnes and also at Cabbage Hall in Tarporley in the very near future. Thank you Pesto for a lovely meal and service.
