Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Duke Street's former Bank of Scotland building has undergone a transformation – coin-counting has made way for pizza paradise, spurring on locals to see if the rumours are true: that a slice of Napoli is being whipped up inside. Wooden booths sit alongside the windows, while tables go two-by-two down each wall. Lights, minus their shades, sit above your head, so you’ll have an actual lightbulb moment as you decide on your order. Waiting staff are laid-back, making guests feel similarly so. They vehemently describe the menus: 'Did you hear we had this amazing haggis special last week? But the pesto one was the besto'. Every ingredient is sourced from Naples, meaning that the word ‘authentic’ hasn’t been thrown around lightly along with the pizza dough. And that dough – it’s lean, light, and surrounds a valley of toppings as pure and simple as tomato and mozzarella, or as potent as olives and anchovies. No bite is wasted – the restaurant's filled with diners mopping up chilli oil with their final morsels, suggesting that this pizza parlour is on the path to becoming a Dennistoun mainstay.
