Established in 1995 by Guiseppe and Margaret Pia, the family-run restaurant has been given a complete make-over to include upgraded kitchen equipment and a new website and menu.
Marco Pia, who now runs the restaurant in partnership with his wife, Joanne, since 2009, said: “We felt that the decor in the dining area was getting a little bit tired, so we wanted to invest in refreshing it. The fact that it’s also the business’ 20th anniversary is a happy coincidence.
“As well as the dining area, we invested in the kitchen and on refreshing our branding. We’re now serving even better food to even more customers so the development has been a real success.
“We’ve also installed more booth seating upstairs which makes it has further enhanced the customer experience.
