The Scotsman reports:

A FAMILY-run Italian restaurant in Glasgow has been named among a host of Michelin starred eateries as one of the best in Britain in a poll which saw Scotland claim three of the top 10 places.

Piccolo Mondo, on Argyle Street, in Glasgow, was second only to Restaurant Martin Wishart in Leith in the poll of more than half a million diners across the UK.

They achieved the highest ratings on the online booking website Toptable, which claims to conduct the largest survey of diners in the UK, ahead of eateries run by celebrity chefs like Albert Roux, Gordon Ramsay and Alain Ducasse.
