Here at 5pm, we’ve come up with one magic question to make Christmas gift buying a lot easier.
When you’re trying to figure out what to get someone, just ask yourself – ‘Do they love pizza or pasta?’
If the answer is ‘yes’, then how about sticking a three course meal at Di Maggios into their stocking?
With this Big Deal, they will have a choice of six restaurants to dine in, making it the perfect gift for any Italian food fan.
Tasty Italian American meal
Di Maggio’s restaurants have a well earned reputation for taking great care of their guests. No wonder they are so popular with Glaswegians.
Dedicated to offering great dining for all the family, it will come as no surprise that Di Maggio’s have twice won the ‘Best Family Friendly Restaurant’ title at the Scottish Restaurant Awards.
This tasty Big Deal is for one person to have three courses from the special 5pm menu at any Di Maggio’s restaurant.
Available Sunday to Friday at five of the Di Maggio’s restaurants (Sunday to Thursday at the city centre branch on Royal Exchange Square), the diner can enjoy a starter, main course and a Di Maggio’s 99 dessert.
Great choice of dishes
Packed with tempting options, the menu includes seven starters, eleven different pizzas and a choice of a dozen pastas.
Starters include old favourites such as bruschetta alongside more surprising choices like nachos served with ground chilli beef, hot cheese, sour cream and jalapeños. Our personal favourite is Di Maggio’s Bad Ass Wings, basted in spicy Louisiana sauce and served with celery sticks and blue cheese dip.
A great variety of pizzas are available, including the Americana (spicy ground Italian sausage and salami Milano with roasted mixed peppers), Cajun chicken (chicken fillets marinated in Cajun spices with roasted mixed peppers and sweet white onions) and the Verdi (margherita with melted feta cheese, topped with spicy Roquito chillies, fresh spinach and rocket, shaved Grana Padano and a drizzle of garlic oil).
From the twelve pasta dishes, choose from options like the fusilli Espanola (pasta spirals with sliced chicken breast, Spanish chorizo and fresh spinach in a cream sauce), ravioli salsa rosa (filled with spinach & ricotta and served in a tomato sauce with a touch of cream, wilted spinach and fresh cherry tomatoes) and the Lasagne Famoso – the Di Maggio’s all time best seller.
And, of course, we have to mention the Di Maggio’s spaghetti and meatballs in a classic Napoli sauce.
Please note the menu is subject to change.
Lots of happy customers
The Di Maggio’s restaurants are a massive hit with 5pm customers and their Big Deals sell like hot cakes. Here are a few recent quotes left by diners at the Royal Exchange Square branch (edited for shortness):
‘Superb. As always… simply the best experience. Staff so efficient. High standard of food.’ 5/5
‘Excellent value. Perfect location… lovely meal and great, prompt service… we’ll be back soon… thanks.’ 5/5
‘Was a great day catching up with friends. From the moment we arrived we were well attended to by the friendly staff who took our drinks order whilst we decided what to eat from the 5pm menu. We all had different starters and 3 out of 4 of us dined on pasta whilst our vegetarian friend chose a pizza. I had a lovely vegetable packed minestrone soup followed by the penne Positano pasta with chicken and bacon in a white wine sauce. Very filling meal so no need for a pudding…’ 5/5
Christmas gift for Italian food lovers
Let’s face it, a three course meal is always going to be a more popular present than a scarf or scented soap.
Especially if it’s at a popular Glasgow restaurant serving a delicious range of Italian American cuisine. Seriously, what more could you anyone ask for from Santa?
