To the locals this iconic business has been the ‘go to’ destination for authentic Italian cuisine for over 25 years – from Friday night dinner or Sunday night takeout to special events in the private function room. Eric Mancini’s dream to bring a fresh look and improved functionality to his established business, but with minimal loss of trade. This led to Impression Projects realising his vision in a very tight construction schedule. Extensive demolition, structural and remedial works enabled a reformatting of the layout of the existing tenancy and with careful management of a staged construction schedule the kitchen, bathrooms and function room reopened in 7 weeks followed by delivery of main dining area, bar area outdoor seating / alfresco and mezzanine areas in 5 weeks – a total project schedule of 12 weeks! Challenging? Absolutely! But the team at Impression Projects rose to the challenge and made Eric’s dream a reality.
