Manchester City star Mario Balotelli isn't too keen on his local grub.
The Italian striker has been snubbing delicacies such as chips and gravy in favour of more familiar cuisine.
He has become a regular customer at Italian restaurant San Carlo in the city centre.
Mario eats there so regularly he has even been given his own dedicated table.
A source said: "Mario pops in practically every night.
"He brings his mates along with him for a meal whenever they are over from Italy and he also comes in on his own a lot.
"The waiters love him and he is always good fun when he pops down.
"They are even helping him to improve his English - he's their favourite guest."
