Help us to find our Italian Restaurant of the Year.

We are on the search for Sunderland’s best Italian Restaurant of 2018.

Pasta or pizza? Spaghetti or penne? Pepperoni or anchovy?

We all love to sit down to an Italian meal, and, with thousands of restaurants in the UK, we all have our favourites.

Now we want you to tell us which Sunderland restaurant gets your vote.

It could be because of the fresh and innovative cuisine, traditional dishes, or exclusive recipes you can find in only the restaurant you use.

Perhaps you love the friendly staff, the traditional style or the outrageous décor of the restaurant?

Maybe it’s so much more than a place you go to for a pizza or a pasta?
