The Vittoria Group has set out plans to re-open all its restaurants in a phased way. Taste of Italy, La Favorita and Vittoria on the Walk will open their doors on Wednesday 15th July. Vittoria on the Bridge Bertie's Restaurant and Bar will reopen on Wednesday July 22nd and Divino Enoteca will be the final restaurant to re-open on Friday 31st July. All the restaurants will operate with a reduced capacity and this will be monitored continuously in line with Scottish Government guidelines. Hygiene measures have been prepared to make all the venues safe for all customers in accordance with government recommendations. Staff will be wearing gloves and safety masks. All surfaces that could possibly be touched by both the staff and guests (tables, menus, plates, cutlery, serviettes, chairs, door handles, serving trays, glasses, card machines, toilets etc.) are cleaned & disinfected between sittings, every 1.5 hours/2 hours. All staff members have completed on site training on COVID-19 safety within the workplace. The company, owned by Tony and Angela Crolla and their sons Alberto and Leandro will also celebrate their 50th anniversary later this year and plans are currently being drawn up by the Crolla family for 'something special' to thank their loyal customers. Leandro Crolla said; "Our staff have been outstanding and pulled together to make sure the restaurants are ready to welcome customers back safely. We are all excited to get back to business and once again serve authentic Italian cuisine to our customers."
