Yesterday 7th April a new fruit and vegetable store opened in our square at Ponte a Serraglio which is great news for residents, tourists and visitors to the area.
Not only does it sell fresh fruit and vegetables but also cheese, bread, meats, Olives and a variety of other produce and household needs.
Annalisa and her staff at Bar Italia in the square at Ponte a Seragglio opened the doors to the “new look” bar last night. I have to say it looks great !! The local community came in droves to wish them every success. The new bar is now ready for the season to greet tourists from all corners of the world.
With food pastries cakes ice cream yoghurt coffee and of course drink we all look forward to many more great times in Bar Italia.
