Salvi’s invited kids from the BGreen area of Oldham, where Forever Manchester has been working to design their own pizza.

Salvi’s, a family ran restaurant based on John Dalton Street is expanding and will join a whole host of delicious restaurants in the revamped Corn Exchange in December.

The restaurant, which opens on 11th December approached Forever Manchester to send some well-deserving kids to their restaurant for a special treat.

Two families from Oldham, where we’ve been funding lots of activity this year, such as Breakfast Clubs, Craft Clubs and community parties, headed to Salvi’s Cucina restaurant on John Dalton Street at the weekend and took over the kitchen!

Harmony Turner, 3, Faith Jones, 6, Chloe Jones, 9, Dotty Sullivan, 9, and Chelsea Jones, 13, all from Oldham (pictured) – formed a great team and designed a pizza, which will be added to Salvi’s new restaurant’s menu with 50p from every sale coming to Forever Manchester. They worked with owners Maurizio and Claire and the Salvi’s chefs to design, create and name the new pizza, which will be served on the Corn Exchange menu when it opens next month.

The pizza will be a specialist kid’s pizza, so owners Maurizio and Claire thought who better to decide a kid’s pizza than kids themselves?

All five youngsters will be invited back to the restaurant for the grand reveal to try their creation for themselves.

Owner Claire said: “We’ve always been a family-friendly restaurant at Salvi’s – Italian dining is all about family after all – but we’ve never really created a dedicated dish for the kids before. This group were fantastic mini master chefs and have really helped us to perfect the ultimate kids’ pizza – all shall be revealed at The Corn Exchange when we open on the 11th!”


The pizza and its name will be revealed at the opening of the new restaurant.

Salvi’s is Manchester’s authentic, Italian, family run food business,

Founded and operated by husband and wife team Maurizio and Claire, Salvi’s is everything that traditional, Southern Italian eating is about – rustic, comforting, generous, fine food made from the best, carefully sourced Italian ingredients.

If you’d like to try the delicious pizza for yourself, be sure to head down to the Corn Exchange on or after 11th December when Salvi’s opens its doors to the public.

Big thanks goes to the team at Salvi’s, who invited these youngsters for a very special day out in Manchester. They all had a ball and cannot wait to try their masterpiece, nor can we!
