An Italian cafe and coffee shop in Burnley has been ranked among the best in the country according to global review group TripAdvisor.

Bellissimo’s in Parker Lane has been shortlisted in the final seven of The Italian Awards for best cafe and is now relying on a public vote to reach the final and a chance to cook for famous Italian chef Aldo Zilli.

The family cafe, which has been open for seven years, has won a clutch of awards int hat time but owners John and Lynn Scibetta feel this would be the most prestigious.

Lynn said: “We are so proud to have been shortlisted. It is especially pleasing because we were nominated on the back of kind comments from our customers on TripAdvisor.

“We are a Burnley family and are proud to serve our town. We feel this is a great boost for Burnley as well as ourselves.”

If Bellissimo’s secures enough votes it will reach the final five to cook for Aldo Zilli in Manchester on October 4th. Voting closes on August 7th. For more information visit www.englishitalianawards.co.uk.
