This attractively designed and profitable Italian Restaurant has been open for over 20 years, with the present Owners having had the business for the past 7 years. The business is being sold because one of the owners has relocated to another Province. Over the past years, despite the Pandemic, the business has shown year on year growth, including 2022, with this past July being their busiest month the business has ever experienced in 7 years!!
Their Menu includes their now famous Pizzas and Pastas, (including baked pastas), a good selection of Veal Dishes, tasty Chicken Dishes, and excellent Oxtail. The business has garnered a reputation for top quality food, as well as excellent service, coupled with a lovely friendly ambience. They have an upstairs area, and are able to do a function in the one area while running the rest of the business as usual.
An excellent popular business that is still maintaining consistent growth and will soon start opening for Breakfast as well, which will add a whole new dimension to the store.
A well organised and well run restaurant which is a golden opportunity for a seasoned operator to continue growing the business, provided it is run 'hands-on' by the new Owner.
A top class opportunity!!!
