First look inside new Italian Caffe Tucci set to open on Ecclesall Road in Sheffield
Caffe Tucci is set to open on busy Ecclesall Road on Sunday, May 21, following the success of the first on Surrey Street in the city centre. The business is owned by brothers Salvatore and Stefano Capasso and has the slogan 'Naples in the heart'.
Salvatore said the new venue would offer hot food as well as the sandwiches, salads and cakes sold on Surrey Street. They chose Ecclesall Road because it was busy and many of their city centre customers live in the area. The new unit is in a former tea shop between Woody’s Sandwich Bar and K Tea Bubble Tea and Deli, near Hunter's Bar roundabout and Endcliffe Park.
Salvatore previously told The Star he was very excited at the challenge, which involves new plumbing and electrics.
He joked: “We’re not sure it’s going to work - but it’s going to work. Ecclesall Road is a busy area and 40 per cent of our customers come from there.”
Stefano added: “We are really grateful to Sheffield people, they have embraced and supported us in a such a beautiful way we cannot say how much we feel lucky to have decided to move here and start our business here.”
He urged members of the public to come to the opening to “celebrate the moment and try something new.”
The new cafe is creating two full-time and two part-time jobs, he added.
