Eating & Drinking Guide

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

This trendy pizza place at the Dumbarton Road end of Finneston is the archetypal hip West End hangout, with neon lighting that artfully mirrors the colourful lights flooding Kelvingrove Museum. With the perfect view of the galleries from Baffo, a window table is an absolute must when visiting. The menu centres on well-known Italian-style classics. Starters include arancini, sizzling little balls of deep-fried rice, stuffed full of gooey, melting cheese and a selection of platters that are laden with salame, prosciutto and cheeses. The showstopper here is undoubtedly the enormous pizzas – half a metre of crisp dough, presented on a little stool atop the table which just adds to their imposing size, covered in tasty toppings like Parma ham and grana padano, or for spice fiends, the incazzata – rich tomato sugo with spicy peppers that leave a pleasing tingle. A great beer selection adds to the relaxed dining feel in this cool spot, complemented by the enthusiastic, friendly service led by Gaia and her team.
