The soft launch of Stocco Ristorante in Norden
Over 200 guests enjoyed a special three-course dinner at the soft-launch of a new Italian restaurant in Norden on Monday night (2 October).
Stocco is the latest eatery to open in the village, situated at the former Mezbaan on Edenfield Road.
It’s the second venue under the Stocco name, following the first successful venture in Oldham, which opened around eight years ago.
Owner Ben Govori said he had wanted to open an Italian restaurant in the area for some time, and really liked the venue when it became available.
Of the launch, which was patronised by local councillors and businesses, Mr Govori said: “It went really well for a first night. I think we’ll be very happy here and very busy!
“It was a good night and we are already fully booked up for the first weekend.”
Norden ward councillor and Mayor of Rochdale Mike Holly said: “Stocco will be a great addition to Norden’s thriving retail and hospitality scene. The refurbishment is stunning, the staff are knowledgeable and friendly and the food is fantastic, a really lovely experience on their pre-opening night.
“I wish them every success in their venture and thank them for bringing more investment into the village.”
Former Man of Rochdale and NEEVA (Norden Environmental & Economic Village Association) chairman, Paul Ellison, said: “Stocco is the latest to join many new and long-running businesses which are thriving here in Norden.
“Thank you so much for hosting this great evening, and I wish you all the best.”
Stocco is open seven days a week from 12-noon, and offers both a lunch-time menu and a full evening menu as well as à la carte options.
