Manchester's refurbished Piccolino Caffé Grande reopens

An Italian chain restaurant in Manchester city centre reopened its doors on Saturday (23 March), following the venue's complete refit and refurbishment. 

Located pride of place on Clarence Street, overlooking Manchester Town Hall, Piccolino Caffé Grande has operated in the city for 23 years. 

As part of the 250-seater restaurant's transformation, Piccolino's classic blue hue interiors have been adorned with gold accents. Refurbished furnishings include new booths, tables and chairs, as well as floral installations, a renovated statement brass ceiling and a decadent bar. 

Guests can watch chefs prepare food in the new open kitchen, while the new private dining room caters for up to 40 seated guests or 80 standing. 

'An iconic institution'

Andrew Garton, CEO of Individual Restaurants, which owns and operates the brand, comments: "Piccolino Caffé Grande is truly an iconic institution in Manchester's vibrant hospitality scene and has been the go-to for authentic Italian dining for two decades. It's our intention to be the most sought-after restaurant for the finest Italian cuisine in the most elegant setting with the greatest hospitality for decades to come and the latest refurbishment reaffirms our commitment to delivering that."
