There are plenty of amazing pizza places in Glasgow, but what about bars that just happen to sell amazing pizza?

That's the premise of new and just-about-to-open restaurant Nonna Said, situated in Candleriggs in the city's Merchant City.

Glasgow Live were lucky enough to go along today for a first look at Nonna Said, and whatever she is saying we can't wait to hear.

Currently operating from the city's west end, Nonna's Said is hustling in on Glaswegian's love of pizza - but with their own twist.

Dishing up starters, sides, mains and desserts, the suppli menu will see their take on arancini - with a big of haggis.

Burns Balls is haggis stuffed rice balls with whisky cream, or to go slightly more outlandish the Takoyaki ones which is Takoyaki style octopus fried rice balls, kewpie mayo, scallions and bonito flakes.

They have a carbonara stuffed rice and deep fried lasagna bites as well.

Nonna Said's take on pizza has the usual likes of plain margherita (playfully named 'Calm Down... Here's The Margherita') as well as the completely out there El Mexicano Loco complete with chorizo, jalapeno, crushed nachos, avocado and chipotle beef chilli.

'Scottish BBQ' has a buckfast bbq sauce, square sausage, bacon and spicy mince.

Their Fai De Te (translated as 'Dae It Yersel') is a margarita base with endless toppings selections, including the likes of crushed nachos, Haggis bites, fried chicken, mac and cheese and even the likes of a buckfast BBQ sauce.

Nonna’s side game is also strong, with fully loaded choices include fries, nachos, hash browns or mac and cheese.

As previously mentioned, Nonna Said also features a complete cocktail and milkshake menu.

Cocktails include Nonna's Negroni Remix, Papa's Old Fashioned, Tommy Boi and Kissing the Pink.

The venue itself is decorated with original murals by Glasgow artist Conzo.

Conzo has been steadily creating pieces for the past decade and his work spans multiple creative disciplines.

With an armoury of skills rooted in illustrative graffiti, his work and style are usually character based and features unique image-play on both the ugly and the cute.

Nonna Said have enlisted the talents of Glasgow based doodler and artist Conzo Throb who specialises in graffiti, street art, illustration and design.

Head Chef, Ryan Burns said “We make damn tasty pizza with the finest ingredients and we’re really proud of the menu. The great thing about our pizzas is that they travel well, like your Nonna we really care about what we do, how we do it and we like to look after all the family with what we’re cooking.

“For meat lovers, the El Mexicano Loco pizza with jalapenos, crushed nachos, chorizo, avocado and chipotle beef chilli is one of my favourites with a side of vegetarian jalapeno poppers is a full-on assault on the senses. Our Scottish BBQ with Buckfast BBQ sauce, square sausage, bacon and spicy mince is set to be a sure fire hit and will go down a storm in Candleriggs, Merchant City”.

General Manager, Douglas Coupland said “Candleriggs, Merchant City is looking amazing and we’ve enlisted the talents of Glasgow based doodler and artist Conzo Throb who specialises in graffiti, street art, illustration and design. His work is fresh and fly, he’s one of the UK’s finest artists in his field."

Nonna Said opens on Wednesday May 5. Find Nonna Said on Instagram here and Facebook here. Find Conzo Throb here.
