An Italian restaurant owned by Gino D’Acampo will close this month after more than four years in Harrogate.
Gino D’Acampo My Restaurant on Parliament Street is one of five of the celebrity chef’s restaurants to close.
After opening the business in 2017 Mr D’Acampo claimed it was the only “proper Italian” in Harrogate.
His comments sparked a furious backlash at the time from a number of Harrogate’s Italian restaurant owners.
The closures follow the news from the start of the year that his My Pasta Bar chain entered liquidation amid problems with coronavirus.
Piccolino will take on the former Gino D’Acampo My Restaurant in Harrogate, which will reopen after a rebrand on Monday, January 24.
