Sheffield Restaurants News - December 2023

La Scala Restaurant Removed

We have removed La Scala restaurant, formerly of 1 Abbeydale Road South in Millhouses, as it has closed down. We will add its successor in due course.

One of Sheffield's newest eateries, Dodona on Sharrow Vale Road, previously known as Otto's, has been instructed to remove a £40,000 extension. The denial was based on the extension's appearance and potential noise disturbances for nearby residences. This marks the second unsuccessful attempt for approval, as a similar proposal was rejected last year. Restaurant owner Adriatik Likaj plans to appeal, emphasising his intent to restore the building to its historical state, with a veranda that used to exist 200 years ago. Likaj asserts that the restoration aims to preserve heritage and denies any illegality, expressing his desire to create the best restaurant in Sheffield.

Likaj also hopes to open the venue (excluding the veranda) after a recent visit by Sheffield City Council officials.

Simultaneously, he faces a dispute over the restaurant's name with another Dodona restaurant in Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria, which claims to have trademarked the name. Likaj argues that Dodona is the name of an Greek temple and insists that no one has the right to purchase the name of a temple, as it belongs to all. He and business partner Rendy Constantin took over the restaurant after Otto's restaurant closed in April 2022.

Otto's Restaurant Removed
