A popular family eaterie in Burnley has been nominated in three categories in the prestigious English Italian food awards.

Award-winning Bellissimo in Parker Lane has already seen great success in the competition in previous years, winning best café in 2015 and 2017.

Run by husband and wife team John and Lynn Scibetta, the family favourite will be looking to defend its crown this year, while also competing in the ‘Best Pizzeria’ and ‘Best Authentic Menu’ categories.

A proud Lynn said: “The founder of the awards, Alzo Zilli, asked us personally if we would like to enter these two further categories.

“It was a great boost to us as Aldo is so respected. He has been very supportive of us in recent years.

“Once again, we would also like to thank our lovely, loyal customers. We are proud of Burnley and we think this is a great boost for the town.”

Public voting is now open and can be accessed by visiting the Bellissimo Facebook page or by visiting www.englishitalianawards.co.uk/home/about-us/
