The Italian chain opened its first UK restaurant in the 8000 square feet space after Jamie's Italian, led by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, closed in 2019.

Their CEO and founder, Giovanni Porcu, previously said: "At the very heart of Doppio Malto is our motto “un posto felice” - a ‘happy place’.

"Everything we do is designed around feeling good - from the food and beer to the service and physical space, and we are so excited to bring this unique concept to the UK for the very first time."

Doppio Malto has dozens of locations in Italy, some in France and one in Newcastle. 

The menu offered a wide selection of Italian dishes such as homemade pizzas, pasta, speciality meats cooked on the grill and desserts.
