Sorella Sorella wins Best Team at the English Italian Awards 2018

On Sunday 7th October we travelled to Manchester to celebrate the English Italian Awards 2018 ceremony.

The award ceremony was held at The Principal Hotel in central Manchester. It was a black tie event so we all had to be very dressed up! The night started with aperitivo where plenty of beer, prosecco and spritzers were consumed! We then headed to the ballroom where 450 guests sat to enjoy the awards ceremony, entertainment and a lovely 3 course meal. The awards we were nominated for weren’t until the second half of the evening so we had to sit and wait patiently until then!

The presenter announced the nominees for ‘Best Team’ shortly followed by the runner ups, and finally the winner which was US, Sorella Sorella! We simply could not believe that we won and were so overjoyed and proud that we had won this prestigious national award! We still can’t believe it nearly 2 weeks on! We are so grateful to all of our staff and customers who made this happen for us, we are so overwhelmed!

We were delighted that The Chronicle covered our news and you can view the article here.

English Italian Awards 2018

At the start of the summer we decided to enter Sorella Sorella into the national English Italian Awards competition. At this point we had done some research on the awards but had no idea how big it actually was! We entered the restaurant into four categories; Best Pasta, Best Team, Best Family Owned Restaurant and finally England’s Best ‘Cuoco’ of the Year.

For us to get votes and get to the final, we had to turn to our customers to vote for us! This was through social media and promotion of various things around the restaurant. We found out in early September that we had been shortlisted to the finals out of hundreds of restaurants around the country for; Best Pasta, Best Team and England’s Best ‘Cuoco’ of the Year. We were ecstatic about this and very grateful to all of our customers who had took the time to vote for us! (more…)
