A bustling Dennistoun treat, all decked out in blue and gold with crystal chandeliers, tempting chip shop and well-stocked deli.
The formula that’s kept Coia’s busily trading since 1928 shows little sign of losing its appeal. They serve hearty portions of Glasgow-Italian favourites at a brisk pace to family groups, date nights and gaggles of friends jostling elbows at closely packed tables. A birthday will be celebrated with the ringing of a handbell and the whole restaurant joining the waiters singing happy birthday to the lucky/embarrassed soul. The menu has something for everyone, with a huge range of pastas, pizzas, burger options and traditional Scottish homely offerings. A specials board expands the choice even further with speciality tortellini hand-filled in Italy, a pizza of the day as well as meat and fish dishes. Old favourites like spaghetti Bolognese and minestrone sit alongside Isle of Mull scallops with microherbs, or tagliatelle with porcini mushroom and spicy Italian sausage. Homemade gooey lasagne is rightly famous. Desserts run the gamut of sundaes, cheesecakes, bakes and Italian specialities, with Coia’s own ice-cream in its myriad flavours often playing a starring role.
