The tastiest pasta, pizza and more authentic Italian food in Glasgow
Italian was once the only option for a night out and the city's reliable family restaurants are good crowd-pleasers for inter-generational occasions. Pizzas, however, like burgers a few years ago, have now spiralled off on their own and the city now has some exciting venues taking this peasant food to new heights. Here's our favourites places for Italian food in the city:
Socially conscious Partick pizza bar mixing quality Italian ingredients with local produce for their range of tempting toppings, accompanied by top tunes.
Traditional trattoria bringing beautifully cooked Italian favourites to Dennistoun, with the option to take home treats from the deli counter.
Bringing a half-century of experience to their West End venue, Eusebi Deli is simply one of the best places to eat in the city.
Long-established, family-run Italian restaurant with delicious, skilfully prepared food that is by turns traditional and inventive.
Mora Bar & Kitchen
Family-run Italian that's both modern and traditional, hip and welcoming, with pasta favourites and cocktails that'll plaster a grin on your face.
Delicious and authentic, the flagship Paesano dishes out incredibly affordable artisan pizzas fresh from its wood-fired ovens.
The folks here, formerly of North Star café, draw on chef Maurizio's home region of Apulia and the Scots larder for a show-stopping restaurant.
