Its post said: “Thank you Restaurant Guru for awarding us with Best Food Delivery in Liverpool.

“It’s been a challenge, but worthwhile seeing our customers happy through such unprecedented times! Don’t forget we have 20% off all collection and delivery orders until Jan.”

At the height of the pandemic, Casa Italia made some big changes in order to continue to serves its customers best.

Its team opened a dedicated delivery unit on Regent Street, close to the city centre. This means customers unable to get to its restaurant can still enjoy their favourite dishes.
