One of Victoria’s favourite restaurants is renovated and ready for business.

Pagliacci’s announced its triumphant return with a simple Facebook post yesterday:

The one-word announcement has received over 400 reactions and plenty of comments and shares.

Pagliacci’s replied to a few comments, confirming that hungry Victorians were welcome to stop by for dinner.

Much to the chagrin of hungry locals, the popular restaurant has been closed since mid-January. But their social media has been as active as ever, keeping everyone up to date with the reno’s progress.

This summer we will have air conditioning!

Among the highlights was the discovery of a century-old horseshoe beneath the restaurant’s floorboards.

We’re guessing it’s from back when Skip The Dishes used calvalry to get their orders to customers on time.

Just kidding. We actually wrote an article about the discovery. It’s more puzzling than you might think.

We found this 100 year old + horse shoe under the floor today!

Ahead of the re-opening, Pagliacci’s also revealed a brand new tea from Silk Road!

Right now, the specialty blend is exclusive to Pagliacci’s, but there are plans to make it more widely available.

Thank you Silk Road! Very exciting stuff!

So, if the hype surrounding the newly-renovated interior wasn’t persuasive enough, now they’ve also got an extra-special tea to try.

Personally, we can’t wait to experience the new interior and taste some wonderful food!

We missed you too Pagliacci’s… We missed you too.

We missed you. Come for lunch.
