in Glasgow’s Princes Square will open on Wednesday with new freestanding booth dividers and screens – a mixture of timber and laminated glass that ensure social distancing and allow the restaurant to operate at an 85% capacity. Hand sanitisers will also be provided on tables with extra times in between bookings to allow for essential cleaning.
Said Mariangela Marini, who set up Il Pavone almost thirty years ago with Guerino Marini and Marco Di Meo, “The versatility of the safety screens has allowed us to have a reopening plan in place with the safety of our customers in front of mind. Maximising our capacity is essential to keeping our business viable.
“We were worried about the 2m rule impacting the flow of our dining room and reducing our capacity by half. With our new social distancing measures in place, we can maintain the excellent service and vibrancy our guests know and love us for while still operating at an 85% capacity.
“It’s been devastating not being able to open our doors these past few months, and we’re excited to swing them open safely and welcome our guests back to Il Pavone. Our bookings are now live . ”
