According to a highly scientific survey carried out around the Big Deal water cooler, nine out of ten Glasgow residents would seriously consider a tattoo saying ‘I heart Italian food’.
Show your love for Italian cuisine with today’s Big Deal at La Fiorentina on Paisley Road West.
For almost 25 years, La Fiorentina 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 per person offer is for a starter and main course from La Fiorentina’s ‘Come Dine With Me’ 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 pâté 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.
Vegetarians are well catered for with starters like the Parmigiana di melanzane – a traditional southern Italian recipe made from tender slices of aubergine layers with baby mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, San Marzano tomato sauce, topped with Parmesan and oven baked to perfection.
The main courses are just as exciting. Try the pollo forestiera – fillets of chicken breast in breadcrumbs topped with melted baby mozzarella and San Marzano tomato sauce garnished with basil dressing.
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.
