RESTAURANT general manager Giuseppe Esposito is looking forward to welcoming guests to a new terrace this weekend as Piccolino Alderley Edge reopens.

Giuseppe said: “After what has been and continues to be a difficult time for everyone, we are pleased to share a little good news, and announce we will be reopening on Saturday, July 4.

"The welfare of our guests and our people is our number one priority, and we have worked really hard over recent weeks to create beautiful, safe dining spaces for everyone to enjoy.

"We look forward to welcoming the return of our loyal guests at Piccolino Alderley Edge and to invite them to enjoy our incredible new terrace which, inspired by Italy's piazzas, is the perfect setting in which to dine alfresco."

Restaurants confirmed to reopen on July 4 include Piccolino at Alderley Edge and Knutsford.

Giuseppe Pinto, regional operations manager at Piccolino, said: "We look forward to welcoming the return of our loyal guests at our restaurants across Greater Manchester and Cheshire, and to inviting them to experience our new summer piazzas.”

New opening times will be in operation across all restaurants to ensure compliance with all safety and wellness protocols. For details visit the restaurant's website.
