Rockliffe Hall Choose Fiorenzato

Rockcliffe Hall and Golf Course

Fiorenzato are proud to have been selected to supply and install two Fiorenzato Ducale 2 group espresso machines at the Rockliffe Hall hotel and Golf course.

Rockliffe Hall is a new 5-star luxury hotel situated in Darlington and is being hailed as one of the finest resort destinations in the North of England. Rockliffe Hall is set in 375 acres of spectacular countryside, on the banks of the River Tees, within a picturesque village of Hurworth, offering a championship golf course and one of the largest spa's in the country.

Rockcliffe Hall Restaurant

The Fiorenzato Ducale was the machine of choice for the Rockliffe Hall as its style and elegance best suited the environment it would be working in. The coffee it produced was the overall deciding factor and it even managed to convert Managing Director Nick Holmes at the club and a self-confessed non-espresso drinker much to the delight of his espresso loving colleagues.

Valentina Fine Foods

Valentina's Seduced by Fiorenzato

Valentina Restaurant. Fine food since 1991.

Valentina’s of London have reinforced their relationship with Fiorenzato UK by further investing in two Piazza San Marco espresso machines which are to be used at their new site, located in Putney.

Valentina’s, an authentic Italian delicatessen and restaurant based in South West London has been operating for nearly 20 years. Their management and staff take pride in offering a range of fine foods, wines and catering services which are a testament to its popularity and success. It is a company who believe in quality and understand by investing in the right equipment and using only the finest of produce it will leave customers wanting to return for more.

The owners of Valentina’s believed there was only one place to go when purchasing their espresso machines. “The coffee from the Piazza San Marco is as good as the coffee we have back in Italy, it tastes fantastic and our coffee sales have continued to increases as a result.

The lever machine adds theatre to the restaurant; it intrigues our customers and captures their attention. If the coffee aroma and recommendations fail to sway their interest then they see our barista pulling an espresso and that usually does the trick. It’s attractive, easy to use but most importantly our customers love the coffee it produces.”
