Espresso coffee, Versace dresses, Ferrari sports cars – pretty much everything is better when it’s made Italian.
So why not take the most British of traditions and give them a festive Italian twist? Dimora, in Glasgow’s Newton Mearns, has cottoned on to this great idea this Christmas, serving up an afternoon tea with a difference.
Experience the fusion with today’s Big Deal for festive afternoon tea for two with a Prosecco cocktail.
Themed afternoon tea

Bruschetta with prawns and Marie Rose sauce
Sandwich with turkey, rocket and cranberry

19th century villa
