THE future of the Tutto restaurant site in Weston's pier square has been decided after an agreement was reached over its new tenants.
Bristol-based Italian restaurateurs Salvatore’s has been chosen as the new occupant for the site, having previously owned a site in Redland.
The move puts an end to months of uncertainty over the future of the £1.8million building, which first opened its doors in June 2012 and won a civic society award for its design a year later.
North Somerset Council agreed to allow current owners, Mead Ellis Ltd, to sublet the property to the new tenants, who say they grew up in a small Sicilian town and will serve dishes ‘passed down the generations’, relaunching the brand as a restaurant, pizzeria and ice cream parlour as when it first opened three years ago.
The building had been listed through agents Hartnell Taylor Cook since last Autumn, quoting an annual rent of £110,000 and business rates of £27,715.
