Marco's grandfather arrived in Glasgow from northern Italy in 1911, soon he had opened a cafe on Parliamentary Road. His parents had L'Ariosto in Mitchell Street; its reputation stretched as far away as Italy and was a "must see" destination for visitors to the city. Marco, the third generation of innovative restaurateurs, bought the derelict Battlefield Rest tramway bundy in 1993 and set about its restoration and development into perhaps the finest bistro restaurant in Glasgow. He is uniquely placed to tell the club about how this enriching part of Glasgow's culture has developed over the last century.
