This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
The 'Philly' has been a towering presence at Kelvinbridge for longer than most locals can remember. Easy to spot by its New York cab colours of yellow, black and white it has served many a student, school kid, drinker and busy worker over the years. Owned by the same family who run La Parmagiana and the Big Blue on the same block, who oversee a continuous throughput of Scottish favourites and staples such as black puddings, smoked sausage and above average fish suppers into the early hours at weekends. As befits their origins, they also produce a nice line in fresh crusty pizzas with a wide array of toppings while a mere four quid can pick up a choice of freshly made pastas delivered from next door's kitchen – a creative pitch for lighter dishes which may help influence those tetchy family arguments about where to buy a takeaway.

Neighbourhood Watch: Great Western Road, Glasgow19 Dec 2011
Including The Captain's Rest, The Belle and Lupe Pintos
What’s it like? One big road full of pubs, cafés and little shops. Flats are mostly old tenements above the bars, restaurants and stores which go up most of the road. Where’s it, like? In the West End, a stone’s throw from Woodlands and Byres Road.
