About Nonna Said
Worth a visit
Great service, menus not too big. Had nachos to start and spicy chicken and Mexican pizzas. Lovely. Not expensive and will go back.
Nice restaurant with good choices and service.
Quirky pizza bar in the Merchant City
Promising ‘Napoli-style pizzas like you’ve never seen them before’, Nonna Said also serves up delicious cocktails and memorable milkshakes.
Pizzas are decidedly on the no-holds-barred end of things, with a nod to both cult Glasgow cuisine and global flavours.
As all of the above is combined with a mix of 80s graffiti, hip hop beats and retro touches, you can expect a very lively dining experience. Best of all, the late opening hours mean that you never have to miss out on decent post-pub scran.
Italian pizza with a cheeky Glasgow twist
Napoli-style pizzas are known for their thin bases and crusts that balance crispness with airiness.
Try out one topped with choices like the Scottish BBQ (square sausage, Buckfast BBQ sauce, bacon and spicy mince); the Lamb Shawarma (spicy lamb mince with shawarma spices and sour cream), and the Spice Boi (mac & cheese, jalapeno peppers and buffalo sauce). Or you could opt for the Dae It Yersel and pile on any toppings that you like.
Sides and starters include popular Italian street foods like Roman suppli (similar to arancini rice balls but crammed with extra ingredients), as well as antipasti and a range of loaded bites.
What’s near to Nonna Said?
The pizza bar is at the Candleriggs end of the Merchant City, just a stroll away from the heart of Glasgow.
It is handy for venues like the Tron Theatre, Trongate 103 and City Halls & Old Fruitmarket, as well as the shops of Argyle Street. The Barrowland Ballroom is less than a 10-minute walk away.
