Description: Situated on Pollockshaws Road at Shawlands Cross, our Shawlands restaurant was established in 1985. 25 years on it continues to serve Glasgow’s South Side community, providing home-cooked Italian cuisine in a family-friendly atmosphere that everyone can enjoy. Dining is a relaxed affair and like all Di Maggio’s restaurants, the Shawlands branch is very family-friendly with colouring sheets and games for the kids. The full Di Maggio’s Italian menu is on offer alongside great value lunch and pre-theatre deals and there is also a full carry-out and delivery service available. Di Maggio’s Shawlands is in the perfect location for a quick bite before a concert or match at Hampden Park. Book early to avoid disappointment!

We were rushed upon arrival, as though we were an inconvenience. Harassed to choose a drink 3 times in 5 minutes, there was just no need for that. Totally unprofessional.
My food had obviously just been blitzed through a microwave, and was of poor quality. Nobody checked back on us as we ate. We decided to eat as cheaply as possible, and get out, so didn't order anything alcoholic as an accompaniment. Managed to make it out only paying £18 + a very small tip ....which was all the experience justified.
We will - never - return there. Shame, great location, decent décor, just run terribly.

Went here as a 5pm deal in advance of circus visit with wife and grandson. It was just for a snack but I felt the place was too cramped with the staff on top of you and the pasta dishes although fresh were not up to the usual standard I have experienced at Glasgow, East Kilbride or West End branches. Nothing bad about the place maybe it was just too quiet and we felt 'over served'.

Thank Gordonm2

Great place what you would expect for a big name like Di Maggio's, would like a bit more of a personal experience but the place was busy at the time.
