Our parent company wins Hospitality Group of the Year

Our parent company, Iliad Group, has won Hospitality Group of the Year at Liverpool’s inaugural Lifestyle & Hospitality Awards.

Thursday 10 September 2015 marked the launch of a new award ceremony founded by business-to-business membership organisation Downtown Liverpool to recognise organisations that play an instrumental role in the city’s flourishing lifestyle & hospitality sectors.

Iliad Group is responsible for establishing some of Liverpool’s most exciting dining concepts since 2003, having earned their reputation in the city’s hospitality sector due to an exceedingly passionate commitment to meeting a real demand from the people of Merseyside for high quality, entertaining dining experiences.

Iliad Group comprises popular venues: Sapporo Teppanyaki, Il Forno Italian Restaurant, P&D Italian Deli, as well as us here at Manzo Grill House in Liverpool One.

Group Leisure Operations Director, Theo Tsiolas, commented on the achievement:

“We were delighted to have been included in a shortlist alongside such industry identities as Thai Leisure Group, Individual Restaurants, Living Ventures, and The Know Collection – whose respective venues have become recognised brands among Liverpool’s plethora of eateries. Most of which have opened within the last 10 years. This makes our win all the more meaningful as it recognises the amount of hard work, genuine passion and determination our team have put in since day one.

“Since we started in 2003, we have had the privilege of not only providing over 150 positions of employment across our venues, we also actively encourage fellow restaurateurs to consider introducing unique, international dining concepts in the immediate vicinity of our flagship Teppanyaki and Italian restaurants, both situated in Iliad Group’s East Village in the RopeWalks.

We see this area as a thriving community which only flourishes further with friendly competition. This tight-knit community really is propelling the city’s bustling leisure offering!”

Manzo On The Green

MANZO IS EXCITED TO ANNOUNCE ITS EXPANSION IN LIVERPOOL ONE FOLLOWING A SUCCESSFUL FIRST SIX MONTHS TRADING

Our long awaited ‘MANZO ON THE GREEN’ is finally here and has seen a new timber-framed deck erected onto Chavasse Park, overlooking the Albert Dock, complete with outdoor seating and lounge areas for up to an additional 50 guests.

This is the first time Liverpool One has granted permission for a brand to expand permanently onto the park and is testament to their commitment to see local independent businesses like us thrive.

The new terrace has launched just in time for summer BBQ’s and outside music. Manzo are currently looking for local performers who would be interested in performing during these relaxed summer nights to an audience looking for good vibes, great cocktails and honest food.

Owner Donato Cillo adds, ‘When my brother Paolo and I decided to open up our second venue, Liverpool One was an obvious choice for us. Looking back, there are probably lots of things we would do differently but the response from Liverpool has been phenomenal and we are about to launch our new menu, with more choices and a wider variety of price points. Liverpool One has been a great complex to launch MANZO and we are very grateful for this opportunity to expand, creating 5 new jobs and launching a bigger platform for our summer BBQ’s and music nights.’
