Family-run pizzeria Tutti Pizza has opened in Stirling’s Dumbarton Road.
The restaurant, run by Mark Crawford and his son Lewis, specialises in
authentic Neapolitan pizza.
The family have managed pizza restaurants for many years and previously owned Papa Joe’s, also at 21 Dumbarton Road, whose name was inspired by Mark’s grandfather Giuseppe Dora. His grandparents, who came from Italy, were also in the pizza restaurant business.
Mark says: “We’ve been renovating the premises for a while and have now reopened as Tutti Pizza with the concept of a relaxed family restaurant serving pizza and ice cream.
We’ve been working hard on getting the pizza toppings right and finding the right cheese – we’ve been trying different things and we aim for a friendly and relaxed vibe where you can try whatever you like.
We’ve had a very positive reception so far with five-star reviews and social media driving footfall and we’re looking forward to a strong first summer.”
The restaurant opened on February 10 this year and is already proving popular with customers who enjoy the fresh authentic pizzas and range of toppings.
One Trip Advisor reviewer writes: “To have such a high-quality stone-baked pizza now in Stirling is fantastic. From the clean bright well-spaced out quirky restaurant to the speedy service and the excellent flame stone-baked pizza that was exceptionally light and flavoursome certainly did not disappoint. The pizzas were excellent value for money considering the quality and flavour.”
There is a gas and wood fired oven from Verona, which can cook a pizza in 90seconds, and poetry and Italian-themed photographs decorate the walls.
As well as tasty pizzas, the restaurant, which seats 80, features unique and unusual décor including a white 1967 Fiat 500 and a 1966 iconic Vespa scooter which customers can sit on and take photos.
The restaurant is open from 5pm until 9pm seven days a week and offers deliveries via Deliveroo as well as takeaways. There are also special offers to look out for – such as the current deal of a sit-in pizza for just £6 before 6pm.
