Messages of support have poured in after a popular restaurant has announced its closure. Enzo's Italian Bar and Restaurant opened its doors for the last time on Sunday (June 23), the ME.N. understands.

A much-loved spot on Castle Street in Tyldesley, Enzo's was known for its Italian dishes, atmosphere and friendly service and was named after owner, Enzo Siggia. Over the years, it has become a staple in the community, and was recognised by its striking design of Italian flag colours plastered onto a renovated pub.

The spot was where celebratory meals were held for school leavers from the area. News of the restaurant's closure was made on social media where many regulars took to the comments to voice their shock and disappointment.
