A couple of weeks ago I was talking to my little brother about the food options in Scotland, and he was horrified that there were not that many good pizza places. Before speaking to him, I had only eaten from the local St Andrews Dominos to fill my Italian cravings.
So, I rounded up a friend and we headed to try Pizza Express, an Italian chain in the UK.
I ordered the Fiorentina, which consisted of spinach, free-range egg, mozzarella, tomato, garlic oil and black olives, and finished with Gran Milano cheese.
This was obviously much better than Dominos, and the salty olives reminded me of Bertucci’s back at home. However, the dough was quite thick, and next time I think I will get their Romana style, which is stretched thinner. The atmosphere was family friendly, and it was nice seeing kids running around with their parents.
You can make reservations online, to make sure that you get a table.
Up next on my list of restaurants to try is Little Italy, the last Italian restaurant left in St Andrews!
