When eating Italian, you need a chef who can manage macaroni, take care of the tortellini and confidently wrangle his rigatoni.
Take up today’s Big Deal at Arcaffe Italian Kitchen on North Claremont Street and watch a real pasta master in action.
A bustling Italian restaurant which is tucked in between Kelvingrove Park and Sauchiehall Street, the family-run Arcaffe Italian Kitchen prides itself on using fresh ingredients and making as much as possible on the premises.
Today’s Big Deal is for two people to each have any pizza, pasta or burger dish from the a la carte menu.
Stone baked pizza
From a simple Margherita topped with buffalo mozzarella to the spicy Inferno, the stone baked pizza at Arcaffe are always a hit.
They even offer a pizza Scozzese topped with black pudding and pancetta.
The pasta dishes are just as appealing. Arcaffe’s spaghetti Bolognes is made with 100% beef mince to a secret recipe while the spaghetti gamberoni is made with plump tiger prawns in a creamy Napoli sauce.
The burgers are made with lean Aberdeen Angus beef and feature winning Italian flavours. The Caprese is topped with buffalo mozzarella, beef tomato and pesto sauce while the piccante burger has spicy mayo, provolone cheese and optional jalapenos.
With twelve different pastas, twelve pizza and three burgers on offer, the only difficult part of this deal is deciding what to eat.
There is a £1.50 supplement on lasagne and seafood dishes.
Available Thursday to Saturday from 3pm to 7pm, this tasty offer would be ideal for a late lunch during a shopping trip.
It could also be used for a pre-show treat – the Hydro and SECC are a short walk from Arcaffe.
