Looking for a tasty spot to use your tastecard in Manchester? Well, you're in luck because we've put together this handy guide to showcase a few of our fave independent restaurants. The best news? They all offer discounted dining with 2 for 1 meals when you dine with us. 

Cibo – An authentic Italian restaurant on Liverpool Road.

If authentic Italian cuisine gets your tastebuds tingling, you need to take a trip to Cibo. Pronounced chee-boh, the restaurant sits just off Deansgate and brings a taste of Naples to Manchester's city centre.

With stonebaked pizzas, fresh fish delivered daily, flame-grilled steaks, vegan takes on Italian classics, and so much more, we guarantee there's a dish for you whether you're a veggie, vegan, pescetarian or straight-up carnivore.

Wondering what to order? We love a dish that comes with theatrics, and when you order @cibomcr's Penne Reggiano, that's precisely what you get. The indulgent pasta dish is flambéed in a giant cheese wheel right at your table to create a creamy cheese lover's dream – our mouths are watering at the thought. 

2 for 1 meals - Sunday to Thursday.

Pie & Ale – Hearty grub on Northern Quarter's Lever Street.

There's nothing quite as comforting as a tasty pie, and Pie & Ale are professionals when it comes to the delicious baked good. Tucked away in the Northern Quarter, their range of home-cooked pies are all hand-made, stuffed with top-notch ingredients, and baked fresh on-site.

With plenty of fillings to pick from – Chicken Balti, Pork Apple & Cider, Four Cheese & Onion, and Mushroom Stroganoff, to name a few – and just as many tasty toppings and sumptuous sides, @pieandalemcr make heart-warming meals for diners with any dietary requirements.

Not a big pie fan? Don't worry; why not give their light bites a go? We're big fans of the Pork & Chorizo Bites. Oooh, they're good. 

2 for 1 meals - Sunday to Thursday.

Evuna – Spanish delicacies on Deansgate.

Take your tastebuds on a trip to the Mediterranean and tuck into Evuna's delicious tapas dishes. Their main menu serves up all the mouth-watering regional food styles that sunny España has to offer.

If you don't know your patatas bravas from your paella, don't fret; tapas is all about picking away at things you haven't tasted before. And with so many meat, fish, and veggie dishes on @evunarestaurants' menu, it won't be long before you find your new fave dish. We absolutely love the Chorizo al vino tinto – aka chorizo with potatoes and padrón peppers to us Brits. 

2 for 1 meals - Sunday to Thursday.

Sangam – An enticing Indian restaurant on Portland Street.

Turn up the heat and get stuck into something spicy at Sangam. It's the perfect place to tuck into exquisite Indian cuisine in Manchester's city centre (they also have restaurants in Didsbury and Bowdon too). Their seasonal menus burst with exotic flavours, fresh ingredients, and delicious recipes handed down from generation to generation. 

If you really like your food with a kick, you've got to try @sangamrestaurants Lamb Jalfreizi. It's made with tender chunks of lamb seasoned with curry paste and tossed with roasted capsicum, onion, fresh coriander, and spicy slit green chilli. Caution, you might need some milk.

2 for 1 meals - Sunday to Friday.
