Visocchi's Restaurant


37 High Street

Now Visocchi's Restaurant

‘Established as the Kirriemuir Soda Fountain by Michele Visocchi and his wife, Marta, the business passed successively to his son Antonio and then grandson, Michael. The current owners, who took over from the Vissochi family when Michael sold up in 2009, refurbished this Kirriemuir favourite to create an Italian-style café and bistro serving evening meals with a good selection of pizzas and pastas.The ice-cream is still based on the Visocchi family’s original vanilla recipe – with an array of 20 flavours including a Peter Pan special (pineapple and marshmallow), as homage to the town’s famous son, J.M. Barrie.‘ From A McCreath Miscellany website

The Visocchi’s also ran a Picture House on the site.

In 1955 37 High St was listed as Michele Visocchi, shop, confectioner, and he also had a chip restaurant, restaurant and sitting rooms at 28a High Street.
