DiMaggio's, Royal Exchange Square, Glasgow

Got dragged to the Debenham's sale after work last night so, thinking we might as well grab a bite in town, we ended up in DiMaggio's in Royal Exchange Square (map). For Italian food, we'd normally have gone to Sannino Pizzaria or Dino's but the service in both gets surlier every time we go in so we've written them off. I should also mention that we also sometimes go to the excellent Amalfi Pizzeria but we hadn't tried this particular DiMaggio's restaurant so thought it worth a try.

DiMaggio's is almost a Glasgow mainstay for Italian food (with an American influence) as they've been around for over 20 years and have several restaurants around the city and surrounding towns. The West End restaurant is just beside our work and we've been there many a time with no complaints.

As usual, we weren't disappointed here either as the menu has a pretty comprehensive range of pizzas, pastas, salads, seafoods, meats, burgers and sandwiches. I had Papperdelle Rustica and Lorna had Tagliatelle DiMaggio and we scoffed the lot with a side of chunky garlic bread. Not exactly a huge meal but then I ain't getting any thinner and I had to drive home as well so no wine either.

They set out outside seating in the square when the weather is good as well so you can dine continental style and it's always pretty busy.

Cuisine: Italian/American
My Rating: 7/10
