A fire-hit Italian restaurant in the heart of Aberdeen will reopen today.
Amarone on Union Street was forced to close almost a year ago after a blaze tore through the basement of the property.
More than 50 firefighters were involved in tackling the incident on November 10 last year.
However, following a remodel the restaurant is expected to welcome its first customers through the door after an exclusive event last night.
As well as new decor throughout, Amarone now features a luxury cocktail bar as well as intimate booths and an open pizza kitchen.
The restaurant can accommodate around 200 dinners and also includes two private dining areas.
Amarone – which is owned by the Di Maggio’s Restaurant Group – has been teasing customers ahead of today’s opening with videos on social media.
