Paul Stevenson is rolling out his popular independent pizza joint Paesano Pizza to Glasgow’s West End with the new site scheduled to open in March 2017 at the former Costa Coffee at 471 Great Western Road.
A £500k refurbishment of the premises will see the same design and same menu as Paesano’s flagship city centre restaurant on Miller Street, replicated in the new 120-cover restaurant.
Paul told DRAM, “Miller Street has been a great success so the next logical step was the West End. We’re recreating what we did in Miller Street but the new place is listed so the interior will have a slightly more polished look but still have that industrial feel.”
He added, “I’ve always looked at that shop and thought I could do something with it. There’s been a lot of positive reaction on social media. A lot of people are looking forward to it and so are we.”
