There will be a distinctly nos­tal­gic feel when The Pizza Par­lour opens for busi­ness in Peter­bor­ough city cen­tre, hope­fully next month.

The look and feel of the place, cur­rently tak­ing shape be­hind hoard­ings in Cow­gate, will be very retro 1960s – you might just spot an iconic Vespa scooter, much-loved by the Mod scene, adding to the decor for in­stance.

And the swing­ing six­ties will be re­flected in the mu­sic. So you can ex­pect your pizza, from the wood fired oven (be­ing built on site), to be ac­com­pa­nied by soul and Tamla Mo­town favourites from the golden era of mu­sic... and on spe­cial oc­ca­sions played live.

So while the decor will be any­thing but rus­tic Ital­ian, the food will be tra­di­tion­ally made pasta dishes, sal­ads and piz­zas.

And there will be a fa­mil­iar face fronting the 50-seat restau­rant, in Andy Rowan, who many reg­u­lar city cen­tre din­ers will recog­nise.

A spokesman said: “We didn’t want to open just an­other place to get a pizza in the city cen­tre, we feel the at­mos­phere we are look­ing to cre­ate will have wide ap­peal. It is not just the baby boomers who en­joy this mu­sic and are into the style that goes with it.”
