A luxurious new Italian destination opened in Wilmslow town centre last week.
Cibo Gran Café, which opened on Wednesday, 8th November, is a restaurant as well as a bar and patisserie
Cibo Gran Café is located on Grove Street where the owners of Cibo have combined two units, previously occupied by Holland and Barrett and TUI travel agency, into a single property. They were also granted permission to expand into the former Flame and Wok unit located next door to their Green Lane restaurant, and the Mobitechs Phone repair shop unit in the Grove Arcade.
The new Gran Café will trade independently from Cibo and be open seven days a week from 8am - 5pm serving breakfast, a selection of salads, sandwiches and grills as well as pastries and desserts for those with a sweet tooth.
A spokesperson for the company said "Whether you're in the mood for a crafted cocktail, a hearty Italian meal, or a delicate pastry, Cibo Gran Café has got you covered. Our commitment is not just to serve but to enthral, ensuring every guest gets a slice of Italy's finest offerings."
Meanwhile a second new Italian restaurant is preparing to open its doors in the town centre next week, marking a new direction for the chain.
Piccolino Grande will be opening in the former Brewhouse & Kitchen on Tuesday 21st November and the company has created an exclusive menu, bespoke to the new Wilmslow restaurant.
Mark Window, Head of Food Development at Piccolino, said "We're proud to launch an exclusive new menu bespoke to our most elegant restaurant yet, Piccolino Grande Wilmslow. Authentic Italian dining has been at the heart of the Piccolino brand for decades and the new menu stays true to our values of provenance, quality, authenticity, welcoming hospitality and honouring the Italian way of doing things."
