Paesano Pizza, already a firm favourite with pizza lovers thanks to their use of authentic Italian ingredients - from Caputo '00' flour from Naples to Strianise tomatoes from Sarna - Paesano recently launched their west end offering on Great Western Road in addition to their city centre venue. As well as authentic pizzas, desserts come in the shape of soft ice cream and a tart of the day, so what's not to like? If you need any more convincing, Paesano has also been rated as the UK's no.3 pizza restaurant on TripAdvisor too!
