Italian food is so popular in Glasgow that there have been reports that many children’s first words are not ‘Ma’ or ‘Da’ but ‘Amo la pasta’ or ‘I love pasta’.
Fire up your love affair with Italian food thanks to today’s Big Deal on authentic Italian dishes at Mediterraneo in Glasgow city centre.
Since opening in 2009, the stylish Mediterraneo restaurant on Ingram Street has won a loyal following among fans of authentic Italian food.
Recently, Mediterraneo came under the ownership of the family team who also run the iconic La Fiorentina restaurant in the Southside.
Combining Mediterraneo’s contemporary design and La Fiorentina’s kitchen know how, the new venture promises to be a culinary knockout.
Located in a renovated Victorian building in the Italian quarters of Glasgow’s Merchant City, Mediterraneo features a brilliant open plan kitchen so diners can watch the chefs at work.
This tasty offer is for a 3 course meal from Mediterraneo’s Take Me Out menu. Packed with all your favourite dishes, it reads like a play list of Italian cooking’s greatest hits.
Popular starters on the menu include the classic Tuscan dish of spicy Italian sausage, tomatoes and Borlotti beans in a special sauce; the house paté made with duck liver and spicy pork and, from the south of Italy, the Parmigiana di melanzane: tender slices of aubergine layers with baby mozzarella, fresh basil leaves, San Marzano tomato sauce – all topped with Parmesan and baked to perfection.
Among the main courses, dishes such as the pollo alla campagnola, chicken marinated with fresh herbs and lemon juice, are always popular. The marinated chicken is breaded, deep fried and served with pasta Napoli.
Another big seller is the frittura mista di pesce: a gorgeous selection of fried seafood in batter served with hand-cut chips, salad garnish and sauce tartare.
Or you might choose to keep it simple with spaghetti and meatballs or spicy penne arrabiata
Some of the dishes, such as the seafood risotto or baked salmon, will incur a small supplement.
Guests will receive a complimentary sambucca or limoncello to finish.
Available for lunch and dinner from Sunday to Thursday, this offer would be great for a family celebration; a shopping trip break; a pre-theatre meal or simply a mighty fine lunch. However, you choose to use your vouchers, this offer is an easy way to see what culinary successes the new owners can create in Mediterraneo.
Mediterraneo has put a smile on the face of many a customer. This is what a recent diner thought after eating there:
