Hip pizza joint in BAaD – bringing art and food together in the heart of the Barras.

Eating & Drinking Guide

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

Magnificent 7, part of the Barras Art and Design (BAAD) outfit which is bringing hip diners to the Calton, is the second phase of a bold plan which started with the award-winning A’Challtainn – the respected fish restaurant upstairs. This trendy pizza joint offers more informal dining, based on the rule of seven: seven pizza choices, each costing seven pounds – even the seventh pizza is free as part of their loyalty scheme. The dining area is decisively utilitarian chic, a penchant for the upcycled, retro-vintage style obvious throughout the large space. The bar area serves both Magnificent 7 and A’Challtainn, which means a great selection of beers and wines are available. The pizza – complete with funky names to reflect the neighbourhood or ingredients – is crispy based, covered in a deep filling of sweet tomato sauce, with toppings including spicy chorizo and buffalo ricotta (aka the Beast of Calton), or vegan options such as Dear Green Place – loaded with squash, tofu and pine nuts. With live music and film nights, and ambitious plans for a bakery, this enticing spot has plenty to keep interest piqued.

These family-friendly and child-friendly eateries in Glasgow are great for parents and their entourage, there's an excellent chance of **whisper it** ice cream too.
