Many French people think that their cooking is the best in the world.
It is a presumption that makes most Italians chuckle quietly into their glass of Valpolicella.
Have the last laugh with today’s Big Deal on a two course lunch or dinner for two with a bottle of wine to share from Marcello’s.
Situated across the road from Glasgow’s King’s Theatre, Marcellos is a modern Italian restaurant which serves freshly cooked dishes made from the finest seasonal ingredients.
Conveniently flexible, this Big Deal would be ideal for a working lunch; a romantic dinner or a quick bite before catching a show at the SSE Hydro, SECC or King’s Theatre.
