“The restaurant will be decorated and we’re going to go all out,” Mattoni’s owner, Goretti Lobato, said.

“We want to make it as memorable as possible. It’s all going to be themed around the Queen’s Jubilee. The staff are going to dress up for the celebration - and our customers can also if they like.

“We’ll offer a free glass of house red or white for people who dress up for the occasion.”

Mattoni Italian in Eye celebrated its five-year anniversary recently.

Owner Goretti said that the new Italian-inspired mural on the outside wall of the Grade II listed building has “brought much attention” to the restaurant.

“We love it and couldn’t be happier,” she said. “Nathan is a genius - he’s the best out there.

“You've got to be there to appreciate it. It’s unbelievably stunning and when you’re sitting outside you can’t help but look at it.”

Claudia Sleight - Mattoni Eye’s general manager – said the restaurant hopes to expand its outside dining area this summer.

"We would like to add more tables to our outdoor area to create an Alfresco dining experience for our customers this summer,” she said.

"We would like to host more outside events in the future.”

Mattoni will kick-start its bumper Bank Holiday weekend of celebrations with live music from acoustic duo ‘You and I’ on Thursday June 2, from 6pm.

It will serve traditional afternoon tea on Friday and Saturday (June 3 and 4) from 11am – 2.30pm before rounding off the weekend with a choice of Sunday roasts or the restaurant’s a la carte menu on Sunday (June 5).
