Paesano is a Glaswegian pizzeria that has made Italians sing O Sole Mio since its opening in 2015. This spot has all the good stuff; wood fire ovens, sourdough-proofed pizza bases, full-fat cheeses and spicy salamis. Paesano has an open kitchen allowing you to see the busy chefs in action, while the restaurant creates a casual atmosphere with rustic interior in a food hall set up.
Every single ingredient is sourced directly from Italy, and so are their menu descriptions. Unless you are chef, or fluent in Italian, you might have to bring your culinary dictionary along when ordering, as you will have to find out what menu items such as sugo and evoo are (for the curious: tomato sauce and extra virgin olive oil).
When walking in to Paesano, you are met by a range of delicious smells, as well as a handful of locals waiting for a table or a takeaway. There is no doubt you are in for a mouth-watering experience at this spot, but make sure to reserve a table in advance to avoid an hour long wait in the rain with a growling belly.
