A Brand New Restaurant Dedicated To Just Lasagne Is Opening In Ancoats This Week

A ‘slab shack’ is coming to town.

When it comes to Italian cuisine, Manchester has it down to a fine art. Not only are we home to the UK’s best pizzeria, but our thriving restauranteurs have absolutely nailed the likes of Sicilian cuisine, delicious pasta and summer-worthy antipasti that brings the flavours of the Amalfi coast to our beloved city. But there’s one dish that’s been often left behind. The lasagne.

A layered masterpiece made with our favourite carb (pasta), and usually filled with beef, white sauce and tomato sauce, the lasagne is an absolute classic, but it’s completely underappreciated, too. Until now, that is. Finally getting the limelight it deserves, Lazy Tony’s Lasagneria is set to open its doors this week – and it’s a beautiful homage to the hearty Italian dish.

Described as Manchester’s first and only ‘slab shack’, the lasagneria will join Ancoat’s booming dining scene, which has become a destination in itself over the last half a decade. Situated at 23 Radium Street, Lazy Tony’s will join a number of highly successful dining destinations such as Rudy’s, Sugo Pasta Kitchen and Elnecot in Manchester’s coolest neighbourhood.

Made fresh daily, Lazy Tony’s will serve a menu based around the classic lasagne, with both a beef and a vegan version available to try. If that wasn’t all, there’ll also be fresh focaccia to try, mozzarella sticks, and their ‘unofficially officially the best tiramisu in the world’.


Pre-orders are open now for takeaway from this Friday. Lazy Tony’s will be open on weekends only, between 6pm and 10pm Friday-Sunday. Get your order in here.
