A new Italian restaurant will open on a busy shopping street next month.

La Piccola plans to open its doors at 55 Main Street in Bothwell on December 14.

Bosses revealed that they had anticipated to open earlier but experienced delays.

The team teased that they will be serving customers with 'delicious pizzas, sides and soft drinks' when they open.

A spokesperson said: "While we had hoped and tried to open for this month, we’re afraid that due to a number of delays that we will not be able to open our doors until next month now.

"Although, we are super excited to let you know that our official opening date will be December 14 from 4pm.

"The La Piccola team will be serving up the most delicious pizzas, sides and soft drinks to the people of Bothwell, and we can’t wait to meet you all.

"Thank you for your patience and we will see you all next month."


Staff had been teasing the opening of the new eatery for months, creating a social media page back in July and saying they were 'coming soon'.
