Across the UK, it’s always a close call as to whether there are more Indian or Chinese restaurants. I have no figures for this but, in Glasgow, it often seems as though Italian food might be more popular than either judging by the number of new places that keep opening.
One of the latest is Tony Macaroni’s at the bottom of Byres Road on the site where Café Francais once stood. It’s the sister operation to the more established Tony Macaroni in East Kilbride.
Evidently not a man who believes that less is more, Mr Macaroni’s menus cover a lot of ground. From bruschetta and focaccia through a couple of dozen pizza options (including a Cullen skink ‘blanco’ pizza) and on to the pastas, risotto, meat and fish dishes, the Macaroni menus leave few stones unturned.
They even have a tapas section just in case the thought of eating a full-sized portion is too daunting for a generation of diners who have been weaned on the tapas concept.
Being a Scots-Italian joint, the sundae section at Tony Macaroni’s is no less extensive. From a simple coppa Amarena the stakes quickly escalate to gargantuan Super Knickerbocker Glories, the Tony Macaroni Extravaganza and the explosive sounding Chocolate Honeycomb Vesuvius.
