Gino DAcampo sets record straight on reports restaurant has gone into liquidation

Celebrity chef Gino D’Acampo has shared a rare video to his Instagram to “set the record straight” to his 1.4 million followers on recent reports his restaurant chain has gone “into liquidation”.

It was reported earlier this week that the popular chef’s chain My Pasta Bar has fallen into liquidation after owing £5 million.

The 45 year old took to his Instagram to share a rare video of himself in his kitchen with fans addressing the claims.

He said: “When I got back I saw a lot of c**p about my restaurant.

“Apparently, my restaurant had been into liquidation.”

He went on: “Now, I don’t usually do stuff like this, but I thought, let me set the record straight here.

“About 10 years ago, I opened a business called Pasta Bar, which is serving Italian food very fast in the centre of London, three little shops.

“And we tried for 10 years, and then Covid came around and I thought, do you know what? We had to close.

“There was no point to pursue with the idea, which, by the way, I absolutely love and I will continue with that with another business.”

The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! star made it clear to fans that the Pasta Bar was “a stand alone business”.

He continued: “So the Pasta Bar business has got nothing to do with my restaurant business, with my import business, or any other business that I do, it’s a stand alone business going into liquidation.

“We have to move on, this is what business is all about – sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

“Now, let’s talk about the restaurant business, which is growing really, really well, so much so that this year alone, I’m going to be opening three mega sites and one I’m going to be opening in Italy!"

The popular chef went on to speak about his latest venture in Alderley Edge in Cheshire, telling fans: “If you live around the area, the restaurant used to be called Piccolino, so what I did, I kicked them out and now it’s called Luciano, like my son.

“I’ve invested thousands and thousands of pounds into the restaurant, a brand new kitchen, all everything all kitted out, and I’m going to be there on the 24th of January to celebrate the opening of a new restaurant.
