Two new businesses have opened in Belfast's Victoria Square Shopping Centre with the creation of nearly 30 new jobs.

Italian restaurant chain Prezzo opens its first restaurant in Ireland in the centre, employing around 20 people.

UK-based Prezzo has spent over £550,000 redeveloping the second floor site formerly occupied by La Tasca.

It will cater for over 140 diners, including a large seating area on the mall itself.

Meanwhile, casual clothing brand Fat Face has opened in a previously unoccupied unit in the complex after relocating from Fountain Street, bringing eight new jobs.

Centre manager Hugh Black said: "It is a testament to the success and profile of the scheme that Prezzo has chosen Victoria Square as the location for its first Irish restaurant.

"Fat Face's decision to relocate to Victoria Square reaffirms our position as the city's leading fashion destination and will further strengthen our diverse retail offering."
