ITALIAN restaurateurs Marco and Matteo Iacobelli have brought their Osteria del Tempo Perso brand to Glasgow in a joint venture with restaurant chain Tony Macaroni.
The new restaurant in the city’s Italian Centre (pictured) was previously a Tony Macaroni venue.
Tony Macaroni owner Giuseppe ‘Sep’ Marini said he suggested it to the Iacobellis as his own brand was “outgrowing” the space.
“The location is perfect and as soon as Sep showed us the space, we knew he shared our vision in creating somewhere people could come and relax over delicious food and drink and lose themselves in the atmosphere – the very essence of our restaurants,” said Marco Iacobelli.
The brothers, who are celebrity chefs in their native Italy, launched their first restaurant, in Lazio, 12 years ago and opened in Edinburgh last year.
