Images reveal a new ice cream parlour opening inside a 'famous' family restaurant after a £1 million makeover.

Di Maggio's in East Kilbride has undergone its first refurb since it opened in 1994 and this includes the launch of the town's first gelateria and churro bar, Churissimo.

The dessert space is owner DRG's first venture into a specialist ice cream shop and offers an array of treats including 12 ice cream flavours.

Chefs working at the bar will also be serving up the popular Spanish doughnut dessert, churros, after receiving specialist training in Spain and using sourced equipment costing over £20,000.

The new Di Maggio’s interior is modelled on its Italian heritage with nods to the brand’s Italian-American roots, and seats more than 220 diners.

Since it opened 30 years ago, Di Maggio's has served over a quarter of a million visitors and provided hundreds of local jobs.

Tony Conetta, who is the co-owner of DRG and the son of Di Maggio’s co-founder Joe Conetta, said: “We’ve been serving the community of East Kilbride for more than 30 years and this is a huge moment in our history in the town.

"A tremendous amount of love and care has gone into the refurbishment, and we’re sure the introduction of EK’s first authentic churro bar will go down a treat.

“We love being a part of East Kilbride, we’ve welcomed thousands of families through our doors, and we look forward to thousands more.

"It’s also about playing a part in bringing new people to the town, and we hope the new-look Di Maggio’s East Kilbride and Churissimo will achieve that for the next 30 years.”
