Glasgow has a fine tradition of Italian restaurants. This reflects their strong community in the city... and our love of the sun!

For four years running I couldn't rip myself away from Italy for trips and holidays. In fact I remember pressing my nose up against a few estate agent windows peering at the little bolt-holes on offer and dreaming up my new "vida loca".

So, still in Glasgow for now, I do love to fuel these passions in the only way I can - and that's to "eat my dream".

Sometimes you're in the mood for a quick pizza. Other times, the thought of bruschetta buried under sweet tomato, mozzarella, garlic and olive oil is enough to make you potty!

Glasgow's best places sparkle and shine, full of happy locals getting stuck into family sized pizza, or getting cosy over a romantic dinner.

To say that eating the best from Italy here in Glasgow means you've got it all, really is true.

I LOVE their food. And wine. And... (well, I'll leave the rest to a proper feature for later).

Hop aboard your scooter and let's find something dripping in basil and olive oil...
