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!

“Very Good,could be Perfect with more light”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

We visit this restaurant often espesially weekends. This time my wife and I with another couple went on friday night, food was good as always. The Italian lad with the other chap in charge and the rest of the staff are friendly and responsive. The only thing we find inappropriet and have complaint about more than ones is the lighting, very dark for a restaurant.... but we love the food and service and will keep visiting!!!

“terrible”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

went in on a saturday evening wasnt very busy so didnt expect to wait to long. starter came and went ok bit we were then left for around 40 minutes without a mention of our main course. eventually i got hold of one of the elusive waiters who asked a manager to come and tell us there had been a mix up and to compensate they would sort something out with desert etc. our mains came and had obviously been rushed through. we were then left for another 20mins with no desett menu being even shown to us. In the end id had enougj and we left having been given two free cokes to make up for it. Family next to us were also unimpressed as their orders had been mixed up. wont be back in a hury.

“Enjoyable Food, Average Service”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

The reason my other half and I have eaten in here so often is because she loves the lasagne. On this occasion, she raved about it which is why we went. I opted for a bacon and cheese burger and cleared my plate. Peroni is £4.95 and a pint of Coke £2.95 - we know the prices so not complaining but it's useful for others to know that drinks can be rather expensive before visiting perhaps. A tad disappointed that on the day of our visit there was no lunch menu.

Service-wise...as I've mentioned previously, it's average - no check back to ask if everything was ok (basic!) and it just seems like it's an effort for the staff. Will we be back? So long as the lasagne remains as it is I would imagine so!

“Awful”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I ordered a DiMaggios takeaway via Justeat on Thursday 20th December. I ordered the meal deal 1 with pepperoni pizza, potato toppers, ice cream, onion rings and 2l of coke. I waited an hour and a half for the food and when it finally arrived the pizza was cold as was the potato toppers, the onion rings had gone soggy because of the grease they had been lying in, the sour cream had curdled because they were in the bag beside the onion rings and my ice cream had melted. This meal cost £19.85 and I would like some sort of compensation for this. It is ridiculous that the food was left to lie for so long before being delivered. If the driver is that busy food will not be taken once it is ready, sort out your timing so the food is coming out of the oven and sitting for maybe 5 minutes MAX before the driver takes it away. There is no reasonable explanation for the quality if the food we received.

“The Best in the Sothside”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great food and the prices are reasonable.
Service can't be faulted and there is a good atmosphere in the place.
I wouldn't go anywhere else in the south side.
