A popular pizza restaurant in Bristol has pushed back its reopening date because of coronavirus.
Pizzarova on Gloucester Road had hoped to welcome customers indoors from tomorrow (July 7) after more than a year of being closed due to Covid restrictions.

“Our Park Street and Wapping wharf sites will still be continuing as normal so if you plan to order for takeaway or collection please come to see us in this part of town!”
It continued: “Our thoughts are with everyone that are still feeling the effects of the virus.”
It comes just days after the restaurant announced it was ‘very excited’ to open back up.
Pizzarova follows in the footsteps of other hospitality venues which have been forced to temporarily close because of Covid.
On Saturday The Kensington Arms in Redland announced it is closed for one week as staff are self-isolating.
Last week, the Old Fish Market on Baldwin Street shut for two days for the same reason.
Bristol’s Covid infection rate is the worst in the South West, and case numbers are rising.
The latest data shows that 511 further infections were recorded in the Bristol region in the last 24 hours.
