There are some who would say that the classic Scottish afternoon tea can’t be improved upon.
However, a certain Italian restaurant team in Glasgow might argue with that. In fact, they feel that afternoon tea is much better if you throw in things like salmon focaccia and tiramisu.
We’re not arguing. In fact, we’re currently swooning at Rossini’s Italian afternoon tea menu (arancini balls, here we come…)
So why not try out this Mediterranean-themed delight for yourself with today’s Big Deal for two people?
Italian afternoon tea for two
This Big Deal from Rossini in the west end offers an Italian twist on a British classic.
It includes afternoon tea for two with your choice of tea or coffee.
The offer is available six afternoons a week until the end of September. If you are veggie, please let the restaurant know in the comments section when you book.
Individual items can change, but expect mini Italian savoury bites such as arancini, focaccia with salmon and deep-fried pizza with vegetables.
There will also be treats like classic scones with cream and jam, delicious homemade tiramisu and mille-feuille Caprese cake.
Feel free to add on the likes of a glass of fizz to round off the experience, payable directly to the restaurant.
Authentic West End Italian
Based just off Dumbarton Road in Partick, Rossini brings traditional Italian cuisine to Glasgow’s West End.
The welcoming restaurant is run by husband and wife team Maurizio and Ester Rossini, who dreamed of bringing authentic dishes from the Apulia region to Glasgow.
Rossini is just a few minute’s walk away from both Kelvinhall underground and Partick train station.
