Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

If you like pizza you will love Paesano, which adheres to the do-one-thing-but-do-it-really-well principle. In contemporary canteen-like surroundings that would not be out of place in Shoreditch, Paul Stevenson (formerly of the Italian Caffè and the Italian Kitchen) has established something of a Glasgow institution. An efficient line of artisan chefs conjures up perfect pizzas in minutes. Following a traditional Neapolitan recipe, slow-proved sourdough is spread with San Marzano tomatoes and topped with soft, tearable, creamy mozzarella di bufala and then placed into fiery-hot wood-burning ovens, which take seconds to char the base and puff up the crust. The process transforms the erstwhile Italian sidebread into an indulgent feast – and for around £7 a head. It is pizza or pizza on the menu (although fantastic super-size and loaded salads can be requested). The topping combo list is kept short – but daily specials introduce extras such as scamorza (smoked mozzarella), wild boar salami, or seafood. For afters there is cake with soft swirls of ice-cream – but staff won’t be offended if you abstain. It really is all about those pizzas.
