Tony Crolla’s £300k investment has enhanced his Vittoria on the Bridge unit in Edinburgh with an extensive refurbishment across both floors. Michael Dunn of MD Hospitality was the project’s design consultant.
The Italian restaurant didn’t close for one day while the refurbishment took place.
GM Alberto Crolla told DRAM, “The interior design has gone from quite a dark to lots of Mediterranean colours – principally light blues, yellows, and there’s lots of marble on the walls.
“The £30k marble-top bar is a real design talking point, really world-class, and its installation also means that customers can now pull up a stool and eat and drink at the bar.”
he continued, “The floor has been tiled in a mixture of mosaic style flooring and wooden floorboards. The seating, meanwhile, has been upholstered in blue and yellow leather. There’s new equipment in the kitchen plus the toilets are also brand new.”
Alberto continued, “We did the top floor while downstairs was open and then flipped it so that we were still able to trade to with no disruption to service. Upstairs the focus is now on smaller groups and big comfy chairs while downstairs caters more for big groups.”
