Franco Sotgiu, co-owner of Solita, has now confirmed that Solita are looking to maintain a site in Preston.
Speaking to the Lancashire Post said: “Our Preston restaurant has been a great success however the Winckley Square location has failed to attract the envisaged lunchtime business.”
He also confirmed that they are actively searching for a more central site, possible in Fishergate.
No further details are available at this time but Solita is expected to remain open at Winckley Square until a new site has been found.
