Pesto Glasgow in Line for Award
Pesto Italian Restaurants Glasgow has been nominated for a top award only seven months after opening for business.
Our 300-seat restaurant is a finalist in the ‘Best New Restaurant of the Year’ category at the Scottish Entertainment Guide Awards 2012.
“We are very pleased to be in the running for such a prestigious prize,” said General Manager Francis Carr.
“The nomination says a lot about the hard work of everyone at Pesto Italian Restaurants Glasgow to make the restaurant a success with its innovative approach to Italian cuisine.
“We came ahead of 2,000 other restaurants to win a short-list place so now we eagerly await the judges’ final decision.”
Pesto Italian Restaurant Glasgow is situated in the landmark former John Smith Bookshop building in St Vincent Street after an exquisite £1 million refurbishment.
Owners, Neil and Sara hate being ripped off in restaurants that charge fancy prices but don’t deliver on the food or service so they set out to give customers great value for money through freshly cooked food in a warm relaxed atmosphere.
“Sara and I love Italian food, but just not in traditionally large portions of one dish,” said Neil. “We hit on the idea for Pesto where you can order five or six dishes between two diners and enjoy a selection of different tastes in one meal.
“We are pleased with the progress of Pesto Italian Restaurants Glasgow and, obviously, excited to be considered for this award such a short time after opening up in the city.”
The Scottish Entertainment Guide Awards 2012 awards ceremony takes place on Sunday, April 22nd in Glasgow’s Thistle Hotel. For ticket information, event enquiries and table bookings please call 0141 332 1143 / 0141 420 1333
