Rush Green restaurant Faraglioni’s brought back to former glory

A restaurant owner has returned to his last business to restore its former glory.

Vincenzo Passannante formerly owned the traditional Italian restaurant Faraglioni, in Rush Green Road until 2000, when he sold it to take an early retirement.

But he came back in June and re-opened on Tuesday.

He said: “I originally took over the restaurant 20 years ago, and sold it 12 years ago.

“I hope to bring it back to how it was before, with good food, good service and a very friendly atmosphere.
