Marco Vanuzzo and Laura Reed, who run Non Solo Vino Italian Restaurant and Deli, are looking forward to the expansion of outdoor dining along the Nepean Highway.

Frankston City Council’s popular Do It Outdoors outdoor dining campaign is being expanded to Nepean Highway hospitality venues. The council has collaborated with businesses and stakeholders to implement parklets and extended kerbside dining along the highway; the parklets will use existing carparking spaces along with seated dining areas on the footpath.

Installation of the parklets was scheduled to start last month and will be followed by the kerbside implementation this month. The new extended dining areas will cater for up to 188 patrons outside 13 hospitality venues on both sides of the highway near Davey St and outside Quest, and entertainers and musicians will be invited to perform.

Business partners Marco Vanuzzo and Laura Reed, who run Non Solo Vino Italian Restaurant and Deli, said they were looking forward to being able to offer dining outside their Nepean Highway venue. “We are so excited,” Ms Reed said. “We’re looking forward to the potential this is going to bring for more customers and increased foot traffic.” Mr Vanuzzo said they had stayed positive during the lockdowns, adding: “We love Frankston. We believe in Frankston. It’s an amazing place.”

Cr Liam Hughes said the parklet design was the same as for those on Wells and Beach streets in the city centre and in Station St, Seaford. “However, this is a larger area and council is supplying all outdoor furniture for parklets along with furniture and umbrellas for kerbside dining areas,” Cr Hughes said.

The expansion has been paid for with $200,000 from the State Government and $135,000 from the Frankston Revitalisation Board. The outdoor dining program is an initiative to help Frankston hospitality businesses recover from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
