Here are a few Italian words which may come in handy at Christmas: il panetonne or cake; Babbo Natale or Santa; la castagne or chestnuts.
Finally, we have Viva Ristorante which can be translated as ‘lively Italian restaurant in Glasgow city centre and I bet that a meal there would make a lovely Christmas present for Mum and Dad, Bob and Fi or even my undeserving little brother etc’.
If you know someone who would say ‘Mille grazi’ if they found a voucher for Viva Ristorante in their Christmas stocking then this Big Deal is perfect for them.
With vouchers valid from early January to late March, this offer would make a welcome present for family or friends.
We all like having a treat to look forward to as the new year begins.
City centre Italian
A short walk from Glasgow’s railway stations and city centre theatres, Viva Ristorante is a welcoming Italian restaurant.
It looks exactly the way an Italian restaurant should: warm terracotta colours, dark wood and candle-lit tables.
A la carte
Available seven days a week, this offer is for two people to each enjoy a pasta or pizza dish from the a la carte menu at Viva Ristorante.
With eighteen different pizzas and over twenty pasta dishes to choose from, the most difficult part of your meal will be deciding which delicious dish to eat.
We like the look of the Giuseppe pizza which is topped with marinated beef strips, tomato, mozzarella, fresh chillies, onion and mushroom but could also be tempted by the classic Puttanesca, topped with anchovies, capers, tomato, mozzarella and black olives.
From the pasta dishes, we predict that the spaghetti carbonara, made with bacon, egg, Parmesan, garlic and cream sauce will be popular.
However, we reckon that the lasagne or meatball fusilli might run it close.
There is a £3 supplement on all ravioli and seafood dishes. Gluten-free dishes are available.
