Description: The new ‘PARMA’ opened in February 2013 under new management - is an authentic Italian eatery – the only one in Knutsford owned and run by Italians! Offering authentic Italian style 12″ pizza and ‘al dente’ pasta to eat in or take away as well as a wide range of tapas (assaggi), salads and chopping boards (taglieri). We celebrate the great hams, cheeses and products of the Parma and Emilia region which is a theme throughout the menu and we bake our own bread for great panini and bruschette! All our food is made fresh to order so you can choose your own toppings or sauces or even have gluten free and fresh pasta. Come and try one of our Italian cocktails or draught Moretti beer at the new bar whilst watching your pizza being prepared in front of you by our expert pizzaiolo! We are the only ones in town to do a half a meter party pizza to share at only £15.50! Every other dish on the menu is under £10 and we have the most sensibly priced wine list for miles around with Pinot Grigio and Montepulciano at just £11.00 a bottle. We are open 7 days a week from 8am for breakfast, and throughout the day and late into the evening. We have offers throughout the week including all coffee at just £1.00 weekday mornings (or free is ordered with food!) and live music and happy hour at weekends. You can pop in just for a coffee or a glass of wine and a tapas or you can have a full three course Italian feast; everyone gets a big warm Italian welcome! Parties and group bookings also welcome and we are also available for private hire and outside catering. Our Italian products are directly sourced from selected producers and suppliers in Italy and are also available for sale from our deli and shop on the premises or on our market stool once a month. Our menu is constantly updated and the wine list changes every season; our Specials Board also changes daily depending upon what is in season using local farms and suppliers. We also have a children’s menu and a Sunday roast at just £7.50 per head so why not bring the whole family? Vi aspettiamo a presto – Ciao!

I visited with 2 friends and we ordered a mix of salads, pasta and pizza. Specials weren't available, only 4 wines from the promoted list were in stock. The food was very disappointing. The chicken in the Caesar salad was completely overcooked, the pizza crust was solid and the pasta dish was just uninspiring. As the decor is lovely and the olives and cheese on the table were delicious I was really looking forward to this meal but sadly it did not come up to expectations. It was redeemed in part by the excellent macchiato.

We enjoyed really excellent authentic pizzas here. They are huge and the toppings extremely generous. I had parma ham on mine which absolutely covered the entire base - this is NOT a complaint! The wine was very good too, and staff were friendly. The interior is a bit sterile for my personal taste. but when busy I can imagine it has its own buzz about it. Can't report back on any other courses as we were both totally incapable of eating another mouthful after the monster pizzas.

We did enjoy our visits to Parma every time .
I share one of their huge pizzas with my husband . They helpfully provide two plates and the pizza is usually already divided into sections - most practical and quite delicious !
I can also recommend their superb Sicilian wine.
The staff has always been friendly and efficient and we certainly shall go there for lunch again very soon.

The restaurant has had a change of ownership, new name - it is now Parma and a new patio outside. The staff were very efficient - the chef came out to check something with us, the waiter and waitresses were friendly and quick. The food was lovely, very fresh and tasty.
My son was a bit disappointed by the size (not taste) of his pasta dish - but was able to share his sister's very big pizza so all was well :)
