In some parts of Italy, children don’t open their Christmas presents until the day of Epiphany on the 6th of January.
Fortunately, around these parts, we don’t have to be so patient before celebrating the season at the Di Maggio’s restaurants.
Available from the 1st to the 22nd of December, this offer is for one person to enjoy a fantastic three course festive menu at five of the hugely popular Di Maggio’s restaurants in Glasgow, Hamilton and East Kilbride.
Lively, friendly and welcoming, the Di Maggio’s restaurants have a well earned reputation for taking great care of their guests.
