Twenty new jobs will be created in Felixstowe next week when a new restaurant opens its doors.

Italian restaurant Prezzo is due to open on the site of the former Candler & Sons furniture store in Hamilton Road on Tuesday and has cost £600,000 to develop.

The restaurant will have seating for 170 diners – with 106 in the restaurant, 40 in a rear garden courtyard and an additional 24 in a pavement seating area. It has an option to extend upstairs in future.

Contractors have carried out a complete refurbishment, including alterations and repairs to the building’s structure.

Prezzo chief executive Jonathan Kaye said: “The restaurant will serve the highest quality food in comfortable and stylish surroundings and I believe that it will be a good addition to Felixstowe’s social scene.”
