An independent family-owned Italian restaurant in the centre of Lincoln will transform into a tapas and cocktail bar with a new name next month.
Pomodoro E Basilico, which is located on Guildhall Street next to the William Foster pub, closed in May for a full refurbishment.
At the time the restaurant said it would re-open again late June to early July, but this has been delayed.
It isn’t just a refurbishment of the decor, as the restaurant will also change its style of food when it re-opens as Cicchetti in mid-July.
It will serve a mixture of Spanish, Greek and Italian tapas and there will also be a cocktail lounge.
Owner Saied Bakhshalian confirmed to The Lincolnite that there are a lot of Italian restaurants in Lincoln, so they wanted to try something different.
Pomodoro has two sister restaurants in the Bailgate area of Lincoln – Cafe Zoot and Tequilas.
