Situated in one of Sheffield’s most popular hubs for drinking and dining, Maranello’s restaurant has burst on to the Ecclesall Road restaurant scene to much acclaim. This fabulous, family-run, restaurant is set to be present on Ecclesall Road for many years to come.
Maranello’s is comfortably stylish and features exposed brick walls, wooden tables and attractive bright linens to complete the bright and airy look. It is ideal for family get-togethers, intimate couples for two and special occasions. The relaxed ambience makes it a pleasure to dine here.
Headed by the vastly talented Chef, Lucia, the kitchen team are highly adept at turning out delicious, authentic Italian dishes time after time. Using the very best of British and Italian produce to ensure the freshest flavours, diners are also able to tweak their dishes to suit their tastes. As each dish is prepared fresh to order, a little less garlic in a sauce or a little more heart is easily done.
A great range of classic Italian dishes can be found on the menu and the high standards set by Vito and Lucia ensure that everything is cooked to perfection from the antipasto to the desserts. Highly recommended starters include the Polpette, homemade meatballs cooked in a slightly spicy tomato sauce; Caposanté, fresh scallops cooked with olive oil, parsley, garlic, black pepper and fresh lemon; and for vegetarians Zuppa di Fagioli, a hearty soup with cannellini beans, cherry tomatoes, parsley and lashings of black pepper. The mains include dishes ranging from steak, calves, liver and veal to chicken and lamb as well as a large vegetarian section. Popular dishes with regulars include Agnello Siculo, very tender lamb cooked in a slightly spicy Madeira sauce with brandy, onions, peppers, mushrooms and garlic; Vitello al Dolce Latte, escalope of veal cooked in a cream sauce with spinach, garlic, parsley and Italy’s favourite dolce latte cheese and béchamel sauce.
Maranello's Sheffield is a delightful Italian restaurant that features an incredibly reasonably-priced menu packed with Italian favourites and a healthy dose of family values. It is perfect for any occasion and will provide a memorable dining experience that you will want to revisit time and time again.
