AN Italian restaurant in Great Yarmouth is set for big things when it features in a TV series to be screened on BBC3 early next year.

Camera crews visited Lazzarella restaurant in Howard Street South to film scenes for an episode of the programme Freaky Eaters - about people with food allergies who sometimes have to avoid entire food groups.

Restaurant co-owner Antonio Zarro said: “It is the dream of every restaurant owner to have a camera crew visiting their restaurant. It is really exciting to be appearing on TV.”

He added: “There must be a million Italian restaurants to choose from in England, but they chose mine - we are on top of the world.”

The documentary's camera team visited the restaurant on October 18 after finding it on the internet and filmed a man with eating allergies sitting at a table without ordering while his girlfriend ate a Margherita pizza.

Mr Zarro said the camera crew filmed the couple as they walked into his restaurant from Howard Street South and then as they sat at a table by the window to eat their meal, staying for an hour-and-a-half.

The restuarant which Mr Zarro, 62, co-owns with his wife Margaret, 58, was closed to other customers during

filming.

The show is due to appear in January.
