Eighteen new jobs are set to be created when a new Italian restaurant opens its doors in St Annes later this month.

As revealed by The Gazette last month, Prezzo opens its doors next Tuesday, December 16, at the site of the former Sandhills pub in St Annes Road West.

The restaurant has cost £650,000 to develop and has seating for 106 guests.

Bosses say the restaurant has a contemporary design, and there is also a nod to the art deco era with geometric oak panelling, chequerboard mirrors and black and white marble tiles.

Prezzo chief executive Jonathan Kaye said: “We are looking forward to opening our new restaurant, and are confident that it will be an excellent addition to St Anne’s social and dining scene.

“Hopefully, it will also act as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in the town too.”

Prezzo will be open from noon until 11pm throughout the week.
