Italian food is so popular in Glasgow that the city has developed its own version of the Italian language called Glastalian.
For example, in Glastalian, the phrase ‘I intend to Di Maggio tonight’ means ‘This evening, I am going out for some authentic Italian food in a fun and friendly setting’.
Parliamo Glastalian with today’s Big Deal on a delicious meal at any one of the seven popular Di Maggio branches.
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 award at the Scottish Restaurant Awards.
Italian American dishes
This tasty Big Deal is for a three course meal from Di Maggio’s special Big Deal menu.
It’s available in all seven Di Maggio’s but you might want to check out the sleek new look of the West End branch on Ruthven Lane.
Recently refurbished, it now features a cosmopolitan mix of comfortable booth seating; iconic Life magazine covers and an eye-catching, raised open fire.
Great choice of dishes
Packed with the dishes which have made the Di Maggio’s restaurants so popular, the Di Maggio’s Big Deal menu includes starters like the baby back ribs; traditional prawn cocktail; deep fried mozzarella cubes, nachos, loaded skins and, of course, the unforgettable Bad Ass wings: crispy Louisiana hot wings served with celery and a blue cheese dip.
Pasta & pizza
As well as a chicken and mushroom risotto, there are seventeen different pastas to choose from.
Alongside old faves like the spaghetti carbonara or New York style meatballs and spaghetti, there are options such as the roast chicken rigatoni and the veggie mezzeluna salsa rosa: pasta filled with ricotta cheese and spinach topped with a creamy tomato sauce.
The range of thirteen pizzas on offer include the classic Margherita; the Suzannah made with smoked chicken and bacon; pepperoni and the ever popular Palermo, topped with Italian sausage, Canadian bacon and caramelised onions.
Tea or coffee are included in the Deal and you can finish with a tasty Di Maggio’s 99: a scoop of Italian vanilla ice cream served in a wafer cone and topped with a flake.
Lots of happy customers
The Di Maggio’s restaurants are a massive hit with 5pm Restaurant customers and their Big Deals sell like hot cakes. Here are a few recent quotes left by Di Maggio’s diners on the 5pm site:
