Plans have been submitted to transform Sixty 6 on Sandon Road in Hillside into an Italian restaurant. The establishment will serve up pizzas and pastas, along with a range of bottled wines and beers.

John McDonald has submitted a planning application to Sefton Council for 66a Sandon Road in Hillside, next door to Diamond Boutique.

Proposed opening/closing times

Monday – Saturday

9am – 10pm

Sunday/Bank Holidays

9am – 8pm


The development proposes a change of use from A1 (retail ) to A3 (restaurant).

The proposed restaurant will contain around five tables, serving approximately twelve covers at any one time. The applicant would also like to put four tables comprising eight seats outside the restaurant for use in good weather.

As a family run business it will add a service to the parade that is not currently available, enjoying most of its custom from the surrounding neighbourhood. There will be a strong emphasis on developing a good relationship with the local community; whilst ensuring the restaurant avoids disruption or loss of amenity is key to its business plan and subsequent success as a venture.

Being small in scale we do not believe it will alter the overall function of the parade or replicate existing uses. The change of use has been proposed after carefully considering the neighbourhood in which it sits.


The menu will offer traditional Italian cuisine, based around quality pizzas & pastas. A range of bottled wines and beers will also be served, chilled in a standard refrigerator.
