How Italian restaurant looks after its Covid safety revamp



Cumbernauld company Paul M Designs has been supplying restaurants with bespoke glass screens to help them prepare to reopen this week.

The firm has provided Il Pavone Princes Square, which is to open on Wednesday, July 15, and its sister venues in the city through its The Safety Screens division.

Like many venues, the Glasgow restaurant has put Covid-secure measures in place including the wooden and laminated glass screens and booth dividers. Paul M Design has also worked the group’s other restaurants, Nonna Gina’s and Primavera in Newton Mearns.

Paul M Design owner Paul Martin said: “We understand that it’s a challenging time for those in hospitality and leisure and we all need a safe solution to get customers back out spending. That’s why we decided to offer screens from £90 to help our clients and friends creating spaces that are welcoming and adhere to government regulations.

“It’s a long road ahead and we’ve got to work together as an industry to help each other move out of lockdown as safely and comfortably as possible. All our products are manufactured in Scotland using local suppliers with safety guaranteed.”

Il Pavone will have with hand sanitisers on tables and allow extra time between bookings for essential cleaning. The screens will allow it to operate at 85% capacity.

Mariangela Marini, who founded Il Pavone almost 30 years ago with Guerino Marini and Marco Di Meo is excited to reopen.

She said: “The versatility of the safety screens has allowed us to have a reopening plan in place with the safety of our customers in front of mind. Maximising our capacity is essential to keeping our business viable.

“We were worried about the 2m rule impacting the flow of our dining room and reducing our capacity by half. With our new social distancing measures in place, we can maintain the excellent service and vibrancy our guests know and love us for while still operating at an 85% capacity.

“It’s been devastating not being able to open our doors these past few months and we’re excited to swing them open safely and welcome our guests back to Il Pavone.”
