Popular Islington restaurant reopens two weeks after being gutted by fire

A well-known restaurant has reopened in time for Christmas - just two weeks after being ravaged by fire.

Gallipoli, a Turkish and Lebanese cafe in Upper Street, was gutted by fire on December 6.

NO one was injured in the fire, but it meant the restaurant was out of action during their busiest time of year.

But the Gallipoli teams have pulled out all the stops to get the place ship-shape and refurbished in time for Christmas week.
