If Italian food didn’t already exist then Glasgow would have invented it.
Take up today’s Big Deal with La Fiorentina Restaurant on the Southside and you can celebrate Glasgow’s love affair with la dolce vita at one of the city’s best loved Italian restaurants.
For over twenty years, La Fiorentina on Paisley Road West has served generations of happy customers with its authentic Italian dishes.
Not for nothing was La Fiorentina the first restaurant to scoop the Auchentoshan/Spirit of Glasgow People’s Choice Award two years in a row.
More recently, it also won the Family’s Choice Restaurant at the Scottish Entertainment Guide awards 2012.
You can taste a wide selection of the dishes which have made La Fiorentina so popular with today’s lip-licking Big Deal.
This fantastic offer is for a starter and main course from La Fiorentina’s Big Deal menu. With eight starters and eight main courses to choose from, the only difficulty will be deciding which dishes to enjoy.
Starters range from well established favourites such as chunky minestrone soup or the house paté to interesting fusion dishes such as the haggis Toscano – the finest Scottish haggis served on toast and topped with poached egg and crispy bacon strips.
If you like charcuterie then you will love the mixed anti pasti: Parma ham, mortadella, salami and pancetta garnished with char-grilled vegetables.
Alternatively, try the restaurant’s classic Caprese salad with a twist – fresh baby mozzarella, slices of vine tomatoes, fresh basil leaves and rocket salad drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and house balsamic dressing.
The main courses are just as exciting. If you like a little spice, try the supreme of chicken breast marinated with garlic, rosemary, chillies and extra virgin olive oil.
Or you might choose to keep it simple with a meatball pizza or penne arrabiata. For a taste of the glam life, order the scaloppini Sofia Loren – escalope of veal cooked in extra virgin olive oil with wild mushrooms and pancetta in a cream and white wine sauce.
Whichever dishes you choose, there is the option to round off your meal with tea or coffee. Guests who buy a tea or coffee with this meal will receive a complimentary sambucca or limoncello – the perfect end to a beautiful Italian meal.
As well as their many awards, La Fiorentina is a massive hit with the people that really matter – its customers. Over a thousand people have booked into La Fiorentina through 5pm and, together, you have given it a great combined rating of 4.3/5.
