Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

For most Glaswegians who enjoy Italian food, Giovanazzi will be a familiar name. La Parmigiana was opened by the family in 1978, and run until 2017 by Sandro, while brother Stefano has managed the Paperino’s brand, which at one time had three prime-site restaurants in town. Stefano's latest operation, Caffè Parma, proudly declares itself part of the Paperino’s family though it’s now the sole outlet. It’s a striking set-up, sitting between the tennis courts on Hyndland Road, with its crisp, clean and modern interior illuminated by huge windows that showcase the bushy, well-heeled part of town. A mix of lunching ladies, families and sporty types come and go, sampling the accessible menu of enjoyable pizzas, pastas and a few mains. There’s also a blackboarded selection of cicchetti, or snacks, with the likes of crostini with peperonata, pleasantly spiky pork ragù, focaccia with ham, or a rustic Italian sausage – costing a tenner for four, and presented on a wooden board, they're an enjoyable way to sample the offerings of this enticing Italian.
