Vasco and Piero Enjoy Reduced Restaurant Noise

Vasco and Piero 1For most restaurateurs it is important for clients to have an excellent dining experience. Being able to enjoy food and company without any unnecessary interference, such as loudrestaurant noise is a crucial part to any eat out. Scientists have documented that unacceptable levels of background noise affects not only our dining experience but our taste in food.  Sonata Acoustics sound absorptions panels have been used often to tackle the problem of sound innoisy restaurants.

 Vasco and Piero’s Pavilion is an elegant and modern, 65 cover restaurant that has been serving quality Italian food for over 40 years. They are proud to count Gordon Brown, Clement Freud, Kirsten Dunst and Ken Livingston amongst their past patrons and regularly serve clients from the media, film and fashion industries.

The main dining space is a modern and stylish interior design, however contained many harsh sound reflective surfaces.  When the restaurant was full, the space had excessive reverberation noise and echoed. The managers at Vasco and Piero were conscious of the excessive restaurant noise and keen to improve the dining environment for their customers.

Working closely with the restaurant Sonata Acoustic’s colleagues at Sound Reduction Systems Ltdwere able to provide various options to Vasco and Piero’s considering overall performance, cost and aesthetics. Once the best overall package was selected specialist fitters arrived on site within 10 days of order.

Sonata Vario absorbers were installed on the ceiling of the restaurant, the work was carried out in the morning before a busy lunchtime service.

Feedback has been very positive, Vasco and Piero resturant owner Paul has commented:

“WONDERFUL! – We had 60 people for lunch and people asked why the ambience was so quiet. I told them to look up. The work was done early in the morning, outside opening hours, and finished within four hours. Good, clean job yet very effective outcome”

Sonata offers an extensive range of sound absorption panels. Panels are available in a variety of designs and sizes. Panels can be bespoke and made to order and come in range of colours to suit any environment. Once installed they provide a beautiful solution to any absorption problem.

Sonata Acoustics use an innovative non-shedding acoustic foam, as opposed to the mineral fibre materials found in most other absorbent products. The use of non-shedding , non-itching materials in environments such as education or healthcare is much preferred by end user and installer alike.
