A four-star hotel in Anglesey has unveiled its new Italian restaurant following an investment of £15k, and is bringing in a new concept for the discerning diners of the area.
Tre-Ysgawen Country House Hotel and Spa near Llangefni has opened II Giardino – meaning The Garden – its second restaurant and first with an Italian heritage, but also introducing a new dining space to Anglesey.
The hotel is already home to the Noëlle’s restaurant, which has earned a reputation for excellence across the UK and now this latest launch has been hailed as a valuable boost to the local economy.
Hotel chief executive Neil Rowlands said they had been looking at the idea for a long time, and careful consideration was given to the interior design to make sure the food and look of the place complemented each other.
Tre-Ysgawen Hall hotel director, Neil’s wife, Emma Rowlands, said the restaurant came as a positive response to increasingly high demand at the hotel’s spa bistro.
Speaking to the daily post, she said: “We realised an expanded menu and increased space was needed to meet that growing demand, but at the same time we wanted to maintain the casual atmosphere of the spa restaurant to provide guests with a real alternative to our more formal Noëlle’s.”
Head chef Iwan Williams, took about three months to devise the menu from scratch, using locally sourced quality ingredients including herbs grown in the hotel’s own gardens.
