So in a bid to wave goodbye to £6 stale paninis with one slice of cheap ham in, Caffè Nero has decided to revamp its menu to make on-the-go eating a lot more fancy - with every item in the new menu still costing less than £5.50.

Caffè Nero makes big menu change - and it means you can now buy whole hot pizzas

What is the difference between “revamp its menu” and “revise its menu”? Are they interchangeable here?

    "Revamp" has a positive nuance that "revise" has not.
    The idea is to make the menu better, maybe more modern.

    I agree.

    I think also that "revamp" suggests a complete overhaul of the menu and is far more comprehensive than "revise" which might entail just a few minor changes.

    We are revising our menu to include three new dishes and a daily special. We hope this will generate more business.

    We are revamping our menu, cutting down the total offerings from 92 to just the 28 dishes that are most popular. This should speed up service and reduce waste.
