Close to Kelvingrove Park, this no-frills wood-fired pizza takeaway makes authentic and impressive pizza – plus a great-value house wine for sit-in diners.

Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

For connoisseurs of quality pizza, the sight of La Favorita’s bright yellow delivery Fiat 500s on Glasgow’s streets can only be welcome. With two-day-matured pizza dough and an emphasis on authentic Italian ingredients coupled with high-quality Scottish produce, the pizzas that are fired over wood in their custom-built ovens cannot fail to impress. Well-chosen side dishes include crisp light calamari and sweet potato crisps, dusted with parmesan and rosemary, which seem too good to be gluten-free. Pasta dishes are made to order, too, such as rigatoni alla norma of aubergines and basil baked in the oven and topped with creamy ricotta – and, if you choose to sit in the bright and cheery downstairs seating area, the food can be enjoyed with a bottle of wine for a blink-twice £7. Generous deals on different weekdays are worth looking out for, and the desserts are made in-house, too. There is no table service and only one beer on tap, but it is Birra Moretti. Simple but top-quality all round – a winning formula.
