A new Italian restaurant is set to open in Chesterfield town centre.

Ugo Marrone has applied for a premises licence to open the eatery, called Ciuri Ciuri, at the Stephenson Place building which used to occupy the Save the Children charity shop.

The application states: "The premises will operate as an Italian restaurant which may occasionally hold private functions where the occasional playing of live music, recorded music or films may take place.”

Mr Marrone told the Derbyshire Times that the opening hours would be from 4-11pm, Monday to Saturday, with possible functions on Sundays. He said it would be a traditional, Sicillian family-run restaurant.

Earlier this year, Chesterfield Borough Council approved planning permission for the building to be transformed into a coffee shop.

However, it appears this plan has now been shelved.
