Visitors to the newly completed Quadrangle in Cheltenham will be able to enjoy authentic Italian cuisine as Bosco is confirmed as the refurbished building’s first restaurant tenant.

The Bristol-based eatery will offer a delicious selection of dishes from wood-fired pizza and pasta to Italian meats, small plates and salads; something to tempt all taste buds and appetites big and small.

With two restaurants in Bristol and another due to open in Bath next month, Bosco’s established pedigree for creating mouth-watering dishes, inspired by founder and owner, Miles Johnson’s trips to Italy, will make their new Cheltenham location a must visit.

Taking the 3,230 sq ft corner unit with frontages on both Promenade and Imperial Square Gardens, diners can expect the same warm and friendly welcome in a modern and vibrant setting. The fit out, which will include an open kitchen with a wood-fired pizza oven, is due to be completed and the restaurant open for both dine in and takeaway options by the end of the year.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing Bosco to Cheltenham,” said Miles. “And the Quadrangle is the perfect location for us, right in the heart of the town. There seems to have been huge excitement about the refurbished building too and it’s fantastic to now be part of that. It’s one of the reasons we were attracted to the space, it was exactly the right fit and knowing what’s worked so well for us in Bristol, we can absolutely see how our new home in the Quadrangle will allow us to do that too.

“Italy is somewhere I’ve been many times. My wife and I got married there and it’s where our children were christened. The simplicity of the food is something I love, without compromising on flavour, and that was the foundation on which I created Bosco. We’ll be offering Italian classics that are both comforting and tasty and are created using the very best ingredients. We pride ourselves on not only our renowned pizzas and pastas, but dishes including arancini, fritto misto and bruschetta too. People also come to Bosco for the atmosphere and that’s absolutely something we’ll be looking to replicate in Cheltenham; a place to enjoy good food and drink while soaking up the buzz and ambience of a bustling restaurant. We can’t wait to welcome people.”

“Bosco is going to be a fabulous addition to the Quadrangle and I’m sure it will soon establish itself as Cheltenham’s go-to Italian eatery,” said James Woodard from agents, Hartnell Taylor Cook who worked with Andy Smallman at ARC Retail, Bosco’s agent, to agree the deal. “Whether it’s heading for an after-work bite to eat or meeting with friends and family for a weekend lunch, local people are in for a treat.

“We’re really excited to be bringing new and exciting dining experiences to Cheltenham and feel like the Quadrangle can offer something special for tenants and customers alike.”

Terms have also been agreed with a prospective tenant for the rooftop restaurant which means there are two remaining ground floor retail units available at 3,511 sq ft and 1,174 sq ft.
