Italian restaurant chain Prezzo has opened its new Grantham outlet - eight months after the plans were first unveiled.
The new eatery, in St Peter’s Hill, has 137 covers and has 16 staff.
The plans to bring the restaurant chain to Grantham were first announced last July.
Prezzo is situated across two units once occupied by Santander bank and the Scope charity.
Prezzo, which will also feature a bar area and a dedicated party table, will be open from noon to 11pm throughout the week.
Manager Karina Rucka said: “Prezzo will serve the highest quality food in comfortable and stylish surroundings.”
The restaurant opened at about 3pm yesterday.
