Bottelinos pops the cork at Yate Shopping Centre
Well known and highly rated regional Italian restaurant operator, Bottelinos, has opened for trading in North Parade at Yate Shopping Centre.
With space to seat up to 160 covers and a further bar area capable of holding another 100 customers, the restaurant is a major boost to Yate Shopping Centre’s nightime economy and importantly brings back into use several long-standing vacant units.
Commenting on the opening, Andrew Lowrey, Shopping Centre Manager said: “Bottelinos opening in Yate is a terrific boost for the town and the Shopping Centre. They are a well-known local name and bringing these units back into use will help the centre as a whole. In addition, nearly 30 local people have secured jobs working there, thus reinforcing our role as one of the major employers in the town. “
Mike Botta, owner of Bottelinos, speaking at the opening, said: “It’s great to be bringing our wide choice of traditional dishes along with our famous restaurant classics such as pizza & pasta to Yate. We are also proud to introduce to our customers fine steaks & cuts of beef from our Argentine cousins, prepared to our usual excellent standards.
This, our fifth restaurant, is an exciting opportunity for us to give people the opportunity to explore our award winning Italian cuisine. Our presence on North Parade in such a prominent location will help to attract passers-by into the centre so that hopefully all traders will benefit.”
Bottelinos will be open to customers from Noon to 11.00pm, Monday – Saturday and Noon – 10.30pm on Sundays.
Bottelinos, a successful Italian chain of restaurants, was awarded the 2012 Independent Italian Restaurant Chain of the Year in the Pizza, Past and Italian Food Association Industry Awards. It has outlets in Clifton, Weston super Mare, Portishead, and Swindon.
