If there’s one thing about Paesano, it’s that they’re masters of pizza perfection. And it all starts with the dough. A dreamy combo, the coveted hybrid yeast is comprised of the finest authentic ingredients and sourdough proofed for over two days before cooking up a sensational storm in the artisanal wood-fired oven from Naples. And the result is beautiful — legit Napoletana pizza, the kind you’ll rave about for years to come! The trendy interior is mere collateral beauty.

Those who like their pizzas are in for a treat at Toni’s. Although each pizza is as life-affirming as the next, the Aldo Zilli pizza is legendary! Toni’s Pizzeria is authentic and ridiculously tasty, with the faultless food made with only the freshest, top notch ingredients. A must-try if in Giffnock. This is the kind of place you return to again and again. And again!

Bravo for Baffo! They do say never judge a book by its cover but be warned — one glance at the pizzas here and it’s love at first sight! And yes, the taste is as sensational as it looks. Strategically placed a stone’s throw from Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, this pizzeria caters to all needs — think perfectly crispy crusts, lust-worthy toppings and the perfect ingredient ratio. This fab wee eatery, with its adorable mustache, makes pizza like only your favourite Italian grandma could make.

A cracker of a pizza spot, Firebird soars high in the Glasgow foodie scene. Between the wondrous wood-fired oven, modern menu, appealing prices and fuss-free ambience, the whole scenario is a winner. The delicious sourdough lends itself to all manner of inventive toppings and enticing bites— including gluten and dairy-free options — and the vast floor-to ceiling windows allow you to watch the world go by. Overall, Firebird always adds a spring to any pizza-lover’s step.

A hole in the wall kind of place graced with buckets of charm, Sarti is a little slice of Italy in Glasgow. Housed in an atmospheric banking hall dating back to 1890, this dynamite pizzeria hits the spot. Loaded with all the good stuff from wild mushrooms and creamy gorgonzola, to black olives and signature recipes, the pizzas are as authentic as the ambience. The failsafe combo of buzzing crowd, knock-out tastes and wonderfully traditional decor, chandeliers and all, makes this one of the top eateries in Glasgow.
