About La Fiorentina
still amazing restaurant
I haven't been to La Fiorentina for some time because I moved out of Glasgow. But boy I now remember why I went quite often it was everything and more of what I remembered about it to be. The staff was still the same gentlemen I remembered their hospitality and service was fantastic. 10 out of 10 La Fiorintina.
Great restaurant. Have visited La Fiorentina many times and each visit has been excellent in every way. We usually go for the early evening menu which has a very good choice and is great value for money. The staff are very hard working and helpful. Favourites are stuffed mushrooms s and sea bass. Worth visiting.
Quality Italian restaurant in Glasgow’s Kinning Park
From its iconic location in the Angel Building on Paisley Road West, La Fiorentina has been serving quality Italian food to appreciative locals and visitors since 1989. A Southside landmark, the restaurant has maintained its considerable appeal by respecting the heritage of Italy’s cuisine while continuing to create a fresh take on Italian classics. La Fiorentina has won several awards over the years, notably for being family friendly.
Innovative Italian food
La Fiorentina uses Scottish ingredients such as beef, lamb and seafood to create innovative Italian dishes. Italy’s different regions, Tuscany in particular, are the inspiration for many of the dishes. A starter of spicy sausage and borlotti beans is a northern speciality while the aubergine and baby mozzarella dish looks to the south of Italy’s culinary map.
From the pre-theatre to lunch via family roasts and weekend specials, there are several menus available at La Fiorentina. As well as pizza, pasta and risotto options, there are baked salmon dishes, garlic prawns; veal in wild mushrooms and beef in a red wine sauce.
The desserts include favourites such as tiramisu and profiteroles as well as a Scots-Italian fusion in the form of the gelato Rob Roy – honeycomb flavoured ice cream covered in Scotch whisky, cream and fudge sauce.
