The owners of Michelin-starred Bristol restaurant Casamia will open a new pizza restaurant in Portishead this winter.

The 60-seat family-oriented restaurant and bar called Pi Shop will open at an undisclosed location in the town's marina area in December.

Award-winning chef brothers Jonray and Peter Sanchez-Iglesias will devise the menus for the restaurant, including a unique sourdough base for the pizzas, which will have seasonal toppings using local produce as much as possible.

The restaurant, which will have an open-plan kitchen and wood-fired pizza oven, will operate seven days a week and open all day, serving coffee and cakes in the morning.

Jonray said: "We've had the idea for a pizza restaurant for a couple of years and we did look at central Bristol, but we both live in Portishead, we love the town and the restaurant scene there is really coming up.

"Casamia is a fine-dining experience, but we wanted to create a stripped-back, relaxed pizza restaurant for families and a wider audience. We wanted to create the sort of place where we can take our families on our days off. We want Pi Shop to complement other restaurants in the town but also complement Casamia."

Casamia was ranked 39th in the latest Good Food Guide's top 50 best restaurants in the country.
