“My wife and I launched Tutti before anyone had even heard of the credit crunch let alone recession,” said Mr Reeley. “We’re really pleased to have kept our hardworking team and would like to thank them for delivering excellent customer service day after day.

“We’re also proud of the work we’ve undertaken in the community supporting local schools and teaching kids how to cook. But overall we’re delighted to be the only thriving independent restaurant amongst all the High Street names at Freeport.”
