The Di Maggio Restaurant Group is to invest £2 million delivering a new restaurant and bar offering in The Registers development in Edinburgh, The Daily Record reports.

Restaurateurs Tony Conetta and Mario Gizzi, who operate restaurants under the Di Maggio’s Café Andaluz, Amarone, Atlantic Brasserie, Barolo, Cadiz and The Anchorline brands, will create a new 200-cover restaurant and two bars within The Registers development.

The Registers is the redevelopment of the former Royal Bank of Scotland headquarters building on St Andrews Square.

Property developer Chris Stewart Group unveiled plans in July to create 50 luxury serviced apartments as well as 200-cover bar and restaurant, retail outlets and a gym at the site.

Work on the restaurant is expected to begin in October 2017.

Tony Conetta, managing director of The DRG, said: “This is an incredibly exciting project for us, in both an iconic building and location.

“The Edinburgh Grand’s banking hall is rich in history, both for the capital and Scotland as a whole, and by carefully retaining and restoring the many original features we will bring this heritage to life.

“Our luxury restaurant and bar offering will have a Scottish influence at its heart and will make a significant contribution to Edinburgh’s vibrant food and drink scene.”
