Amore More More...

No sooner had I blogged about possible changes afoot in the old Silks shop unit than a banner has gone up proclaiming the imminent arrival of 'Bellini' - bar, cafe, restaurant.

A few months back I asked you what type of restaurant you would like to see join the illustrious list of local eateries. The responses flooded in - Greek, Spanish, Mexican, Thai, Korean and British restaurants were amongst your suggestions.

As it turns out we have ended up with a third Italian restaurant (the fourth if you count Pizza Express, which I don't).

I suppose that in a small suburban town in the middle of an economic downturn it pays to play it safe and go for a tried and tested cuisine, but do we really have the appetite for yet another Italian?

Time will tell. In the meantime, I am officially disappointed.
