The original Piccolo Mondo was set up by two brothers from Tuscany back in 1974, and re-emerged in its current premises some 15 years later. It’s still a family business and has become a fixture of the Glasgow scene with its brand of well-tried trattoria cooking and Tuscan flavours. Antipasti of insalata caprese, beef carpaccio and hot potted prawns with grissini (a house speciality) lead on to soups, pasta and main courses along the lines of cappelletti ‘in brodo’, escalopes of veal in creamy mushroom sauce or grilled sea bass with rosemary, garlic and white wine. Steak Diane, tagliolini with king prawns and crêpes Suzette are given the flambé treatment, and the food is backed by a big list of Italian regional wines. There’s an offshoot at 63 Hairst Street, Renfrew.
