Italian restaurant in Pontefract enters voluntary liquidation

An Italian restaurant in the historic market town of Pontefract, West Yorkshire has entered into voluntary liquidation, after 25 years of business.

Ristorante (Pontefract) Limited, which traded under Mamma Mia, was opened by Alfonso and Louise Pisciotta in 1990.

A notice regarding the appointment of liquidators was posted on the official public record site, the Gazette, yesterday (9 November), along with a resolutions for winding up notice.

The restaurant's website states: "Mamma Mia is now closed. Sorry for any inconvenience". Both Alfonso and Louise Pisciotta have always worked in the catering industry within restaurants and hotels in the UK and abroad.

A meeting of the creditors of Mamma Mia was held at the offices of Begbies Traynor in York on 27 October. David Adam Broadbent and Rob Sadler of Begbies Traynor were appointed liquidators as a result of the meeting.

The 80-cover restaurant at 61 Northgate offered traditional Italian dishes including pizza, pasta, meat and seafood, along with a range of desserts.
