A CHERISHED Italian restaurant in Somerset has gone on the market in hopes to find new owners.

Pizza Pasta Mondo, based in Yeovil, was first established in 2011 and has since built up a strong reputation and loyal customer base, with a Google rating of 4.4 stars from 260 reviews.

The business has now been put up for sale with an asking price of £149,995 as the founders hope to relocate and pursue other business interests, according to BusinessesForSale.com.

A spokesperson for Cogogo said: "Pizza Pasta Mondo Yeovil is an authentic Italian restaurant that uses the freshest ingredients. They cook all their pizza, pasta, and salads from fresh and their authentic menu is available for both delivery and collection.

"They also serve breakfast, fantastic coffee, cakes, savoury Italian treats, wraps and Focaccia paninis.

The online menu allows customers to either eat in, takeaway or get it delivered."
