It could be argued that the Italians invented banking.
But only a fool would count that against them when they also came up with the pizza and perfected pasta.
Raise a glass, and a fork, to the genius of Italian cooking with today’s Big Deal at the ever popular Esca restaurant on Chisholm Street in the Merchant City.
A cosy, candle-lit space, Esca has been making its customers very happy for well over a decade and they know exactly what sort of dishes make their customers smile.
Freshly prepared on the premises each day, their dishes showcase genuine, rustic and regional Italian cuisine.
Perfect pizza, pristine pasta
With today’s offer, two people can each enjoy any pizza, pasta or risotto from the a la carte menu plus a large glass of wine or a bottle of Peroni each
With a dozen pizza, thirteen pasta and five risotto to choose from, there is a lot to tempt diners.
Will it be the nocina fungo pizza topped with onion, Italian sausage and wild mushrooms or will the classic lasagne or spaghetti carbonara win out?
Mind you, it’s also hard to see past the crab risotto. Or the chicken, bacon and Gorgonzola version.
There will be a £1.50 supplement on all prawn, veal and Parma ham dishes.
Great night out
Available from the 1st of March, seven days a week from noon to 9.30pm, this offer is incredibly flexible.
You could use it for a night out with friends or family; a working lunch; a shopping trip break or for a romantic evening with someone special.
Of course, with the Tron theatre just across the road, Esca is also perfectly located for a pre-show meal.
Esca just keeps on attracting glowing reviews from 5pm Dining customers. At the time of writing, just under 2000 of you had given it a cracking 4.3/5.
This recent review says it all:
‘Fab night at Esca. We were going to the Tron theatre across the road for a gig and the six of us all had different starters and most of us had different mains. My pate was fantastic but my top mark goes to the funghi risotto… Creamy tasty bowl of goodness!!’ Rating 4.2/5
Pick up today’s Big Deal with Esca and choose from a fantastic selection of pasta, pizza and risotto plus a large wine or a bottle of Peroni.
