The ever popular Godfather take-away in Darwen has opened its doors as the towns newest Italian restaurant. The Godfather in Darwen has always been proud to be a favourite with local residents for their fine take-away pizzas and kebabs but the owners are keen to stress that the restaurant is completely separate.
"The pizza dough used for our restaurant pizzas is made using different ingredients and the whole menu is brand new for the restaurant with plenty of additions which are unique to the restaurant side. We hope people will enjoy our food and keep coming back to experience our friendly and relaxed atmosphere" one of the owners, Keyvan, told us.
The Italian restaurant, which opened for the first time lat weekend, is split over two floors in the building next door to the pre-existing take-away shop in Duckworth Street, Darwen. To help encourage people to call in for the first time they are offering free corkage when you bring your own bottle of wine for a limited time.
"We will continue to allow people to bring their own wine in future, but we plan on introducing a corkage fee at some point." Keyvan explained.
Darwen's new Italian restaurant is ideal for functions too and they will happily take bookings of 50+ people for Christmas parties, works parties, christenings etc.
Keyvan told us how the restaurant will be family orientated and children are more than welcome with a special "early bird" set menu for those who wish to dine a little earlier (4pm-7pm), offering 2 courses for £10.50 and 3 courses for £12.95.
The Godfather Pizza House was established in 1990 and has always been a family run business which prides itself on its relationship with their customers. To tie in with the strong family relationship, the restaurant features pictures of the owners' Grandfather, Ervardo, who was born and raised in Naples, Italy.
