Luciano’s Glasgow (Burnside) Takeaway 2022 : Review

Todays Order

I have wanted to try here since it opened, but when I looked in it was always busy.

I spotted that it was on JustEat so I decided to do a wee takeaway

The Food

Marinara £8.50
Tomato sugo, anchovies, capers, garlic, olives

I didn’t know what to order but I thought lets start with either a pizza or pasta.

I decided to go for a pizza tonight, and this one jumped out at me so I had to order it.

I opened the box and oh this looked and smelled very nice.

Now it was time to dig in and take a slice.

The first thing I got was the fish taste followed by the olives then the tomato sugo…this really worked very well.

The pizza base was nice, though I did find the crust a bit too doughy…this could be due to delivery time? but that was the only small issue.

I would order this again as I really liked all the flavours.

Value for Money★★★★★

Patatine tartufo e parmigiano {v} {gf} £4.00
Skinny fries, Parmesan cheese, truffle oil

I wanted to try something small along side with the pizza, and chips came to my mind.

I opted for this as it sounded very nice.

I opened the box and the small was nice, and the texture of the chips was good but….where was the parmesan cheese?

I have had these at other places before, and also made them at home but I tasted no Parmesan cheese…I think they forgot to add which was ok as mistakes happen but most of the flavour was lost due to this.

As I said on their own they were nice, and tasty but the parmesan cheese would have made it much nicer.

Value for Money★★★★

Takeaway Overall

Overall todays order was good, I did like the pizza and the chips the only down part was the lack of cheese but as I said the chips were nice the way they arrived but that would have beer with cheese.

I will order again at some point soon and maybe even pop in for dinner so keep watching my blog.

La Fiorentina Ristorante (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I visited not that long ago but that visit was to be a judge, I spoke to the guys here and said I would be back and I always keep my word.

Today I was at Falkirk doing a charity event, and I felt like pizza so I decided to pop back and visit.

The Food

Baked focaccia bread with sea salt, rosemary and extra virgin olive oil.

I remember trying this on my last visit here and had to have it again.

WOW, this time it was a massive portion! it’s probably a good sharing one or if you are a very hungry person.

I took a bite and mmm great texture, and a perfect balance of salt and rosemary mmm so good!

I loved every bite!

4 Formaggi £13.50
White piazza topped with buffalo mozzarella, cheddar, gorgonzola and parmesan cheese

When I visited Italy I always had a few of these and loved them, so when I spotted they did them here I had to go for this and see how it was here.

On arrival, this looked and smelled amazing and I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

Ohhh this was soo good! the base was nice and thin and the flavours of all the cheese mmm it took me right back to being in Italy.

I finished this and loved it and will be getting it again on my next visit.

Visit Overall

Tonight’s visit was really good, the service and the food were just the same as before.

My favourite was the pizza as it took me right back to sitting in Italy watching the people walk by while I enjoy the pizza.

I will be adding here to my Top Restaurants page, soo do check them out.

Hectors Artisan Pizzeria (Dunbar, Scotland) 2022 : Review

The Visit

Today I took a drive with my best friend to see several spots along the coastline, and Dunbar was the first stop.

Here was mentioned a few times in a few videos I watched and also someone my friend knew also said to try here…so we did.

Todays Order

My friend and I decided to get two pizzas both that we could half and try.

Crombies of Edinburgh Belhaven Banger £13
Belhaven Banger (pork sausage with fresh herbs, spices and Belhaven Best) mozzarella, tomato

On arrival this looked so good! and had an amazing smell…I couldnt wait to dig right in!

This was a really really good pizza!

The base was lovely and thin, the crust nice and fluffy and the toppings very fresh and packed with flavour! I enjoyed every single bite!

Highly recommended! and if you do fancy this you have to visit here as its an exclusive to Hectors!

Linton Meatball £13
Linton Butcher meatballs (pork & beef with fresh herbs, chilli and fennel seeds), mozzarella, tomato

Another pizza that looked, and smelled great and we both couldnt wait to dig in to.

Just like the other pizza, this had a lovely thin base, fluffy crust and toppings mega fresh and very tasty.

The meatballs were packed with flavour, and just melted in your mouth!

This place does REALLY good pizza and worth a visit!

Choc-Board £5.00
Chocolates and a mini hot choc from Chocolate Tree, Dunbar

This sounded nice, and the girl today did explain it was small chocolates but said sure lets try it.

Yip she was 100% correct, but after a BIG pizza this was probably a good size.

Both chocolates were nice, and so was the hot chocolate…for me personally at £5 I think its a little too costly maybe if there was 4 chocolates…hmm hard to say.

Overall it was nice but maybe £4 is a better price.

Visit Overall:

I am glad we visited here as the atmosphere was nice, the decor was nice and the service was very good.

Food wise, the pizzas were so so good! and I am adding to my top spots page just for the pizzas!
