Hilton Smythe welcomes to the market Rustico Italian Bistro. The business was originally established by our clients in 2018. Though our clients have really enjoyed creating and growing their beloved Bistro, they are now looking to sell due to the desire to move back to Italy and be closer to family.

This lovely Bistro offers a range of dishes including artisan breads, pastas, paninis, deserts, a selection of Italian wines and speciality coffees, along with chef specials.

Since establishment our clients have built up an excellent reputation for the quality and dining experience offered. Along with the abundance of online, 5-star reviews across google, TripAdvisor and social media, the business also holds a 5-star hygiene rating.

The restaurant is open for 2 sittings lunch/brunch and dinner, with dinner reservations nearly always fully booked. The business has a fantastic, informative website with an online booking system.

As per 2019 accounts the business generated an advised turnover exceeding £150,000 with a gross profit of 63%. This is a great turnover that could be increased even further by maximising opening hours, pushing advertising.

The property has recently been refurbished and so this would make a great opportunity for a purchaser looking for a walk-in trading opportunity.

** The business also has an alcohol license and can serve till 11:55am **
