1. Paesano

Evening Times:

IF you are prepared to queue out the door, it's hard to beat for authentic Neapolitan pizza, which is prepared with simple and fresh ingredients and no fancy toppings. Don't be surprised if you spot the odd Celtic footballer carb-loading in front of the open-plan kitchen. With prices starting at just £5 and a 'tart of the day' for afters what's not to love?

2. Basta

Evening Times:

HOT on the heels of Paesano, Basta in Partick is gaining rave reviews from restaurant critics. Strianese tomatoes and extra virgin olive oil are imported from Italy with other produce sourced as close to home as possible, including the Sandy Road Community Garden. Options include a special 8-hour Harrissa Spiced Lamb and diners can also 'make your own' pizza.

3. Dal Pizzaiolo

Evening Times:

OPENED its doors in Finnieston on April 1 last year but you wouldn't be a fool to choose this eaterie for you pizza fix, breakfast or Cafe Latte. With the SSE Hydro Arena and SEC just five minutes away it's the perfect place to fuel up before a gig.

4. Tony Macaroni

Evening Times:

The family-friendly restaurant at the bottom of Byres Road does a mean Margherita that is included in the exceptionally good value Presto lunch menu, available from Monday to Friday from 12 - 6.30pm, priced from £4.95. The service is superb with a healthy dose of Italian charm.

5. Baffo

Evening Times:

THIS popular pizzeria, which is just across the road from Kelvingrove Museum has been rated 'excellent' by 70% of Trip Advisor reviewers.. Diners will be spoiled for choice with 14 varieties of pizza to choose from. Owner Enzo Trapanese from Salerno insists on 48-hour proving for his pizza dough which when baked creates a thin, crunchy, wood smoke-infused crust.
