Doppio Malto, which currently operates 28 restaurants across seven Italian regions - and one in France, will open its doors in June in the former Jamie's Italian site on George Square - creating more than 40 jobs in Glasgow.

The 8000sq ft site is currently undergoing a significant refurbishment, which will include the creation of a basement bar and a 180-seat restaurant.

Speaking of the new Glasgow restaurant Doppio Malto CEO and founder, Giovanni Porcu, said: "The past year has been incredibly tough for the restaurant sector, but finally there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

"Unlike more traditional Italian dining concepts, Doppio Malto represents modern Italy and its love of feel-good food, atmosphere and craft beer.

"I have no doubt that the people of Glasgow will embrace us with open arms and enjoy this unique new offering."

From beer-based bespoke cocktails to dishes featuring the best produce from Italy, Doppio Malto will offer a wide-range of drinks, food and activities for all the family.

In addition to the restaurant’s Italian-influenced menu, guests can also look forward to a comprehensive selection of highly-awarded Doppio Malto craft beers (16 variations), which have been developed and brewed in Italy.

Doppio Malto’s goal is to open 100 restaurants throughout the UK following the group’s rapid growth in Italy in recent years.

Giovanni Porcu added: "Each and every Doppio Malto is renowned for its motto “un posto felice” - a ‘happy place’ to enjoy genuine craft beers paired with hearty dishes.

"We are very excited to be bringing a flavour of modern Italy to the UK for the very first time.

"Glasgow is a wonderful city with a deep connection with Italy, so this felt like the natural place for us to lay our UK foundations.

"The dining scene is vibrant and exciting, so we are looking forward to being part of that and welcoming Glasgow customers through our doors."
