Launch of Paesano Pizza, 94 Miller Street, Glasgow

Paesano pizza - busy launch night

A taste of Napoli in Glasgow

Mrs Foodie is still moaning about her sore leg (pulled her calf muscle) so Mr Foodie got the chance to have a night out on his own at the opening of Paesano Pizza on Miller Street where CF Nash used to be years ago.

The Gianni Acunto of Napoli ovens cost £20,000, so these better be good pizzas!

Inside the décor was hip and modern but didn’t tick too many hipster boxes!  Benches enable everyone to get cosy together and create a relaxed beer-hall style atmosphere.

It’s also surprisingly big (well Nash’s was a big cavernous space from what we can remember) stretching back and to the left – it’s much much bigger than Piece next door for example.

Mr Foodie settled down to an Italian lager, Messina, that he’d never had before (a fairly typical pils).

And perused the menu opting for the spicy salami pizza (click pic for menu).

and here it was – a very thin soft base with puffy doughy edges, it wasn’t crispy at all (if you prefer that style) with lots of tomato sugo and meat on top.

And he had room for some soft old-school vanilla ice-cream.

 

They open officially at lunch time today (06/08/15) and we shall return again soon for a proper review once they’ve settled in, until then read more on their website: paesanopizza.co.uk
