Iconic Leeds Italian restaurant to reopen following £2m revamp

Legendary Leeds Italian restaurant, San Carlo Flying Pizza, reopens its doors tomorrow (Friday 24th May) following a £2m refurbishment.

San Carlo Flying Pizza, part of San Carlon Group, has been a mainstay of Roundhay’s heritage since first opening its doors in 1974. The refit, which has been designed in-house and is custom to San Carlo Flying Pizza, draws on concepts set out in the Group’s successful Alderley Edge establishment, while acknowledging original features of the well-known and loved San Carlo Flying Pizza.

As part of the new refit, visitors can expect refined interiors with the introduction of retro elements, new neon signage and a complete refurbishment of the bar. Inspired by the traditional Italian villas of Lake Como, new terrazzo floors will be laid throughout the site too, emphasising the brand’s Italian heritage.

Customers can expect to see more bespoke artwork celebrating local artists, there’ll also be a new shellfish instalment which plays homage to San Carlo Flying Pizza’s longstanding display.

Marcello Distefano, CEO at San Carlo, commented: “San Carlo Flying Pizza is such an iconic restaurant within the local community, it was only right we give it the revamp it deserved. We have such a fiercely loyal customer base within the local area and beyond, so the aim of our refurb is to ensure we maintain our status as Leeds’ most renowned Italian restaurant as we cater to locals and those who travel from afar to dine with us.

“We can’t wait to reopen our doors and welcome regulars and new customers. We hope our guests have a true authentic Italian dining experience with us – conveyed not only through our carefully crafted food and drink, but through the décor and ambience too.”

With up to 130 covers, San Carlo Flying Pizza guests can expect to enjoy San Carlo’s new summer menu, available across all San Carlo sites now.
