A restaurant in Glasgow's popular west end area has gone up for sale just two years after it changed hands.

Farina, a pizzeria located on Argyle Street, is looking for new owners after it took over from the previous restaurant Baffo - also a pizza restaurant - in September 2022.

The venue is described as being "well established as an Italian restaurant" with "a great reputation" despite having only been trading for a short time. It is up for sale with Smith & Clough with an asking price of £79,000.

The description of the restaurant reads: "Farina was established by our clients just over a year ago, and prior to that had traded as Baffo for approximately 6 years, so the business is well established as an Italian restaurant, and despite Farina still being very much in its infancy, in this time it has developed a great reputation for its quality Italian cuisine and service, in a first class location.

"The business enjoys a good regular clientele from the surrounding residents and businesses, however benefits greatly from its location, taking advantage of museum visitors, tourists & day trippers, as well as people attending concerts at the Hydro and SECC etc."

While Farina specialises in Italian cuisine, including pizza, pasta, bread, and desserts, sellers say it could "easily be adapted to suit a wide range of cuisines and concepts".

The description continues: "The business specialises in freshly baked traditional artisan Neapolitan pizzas and freshly cooked pasta, as well as a good selection of starters and desserts including soft serve ice cream which is freshly made on the premises, complimented by a selection of wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks.

"Whilst the business is established as an Italian restaurant it is felt that the premises could easily be adapted to suit a wide range of cuisines and concepts.

"There is further potential to increase turnover by increasing the capacity by developing a mezzanine level, which has been granted a building warrant, as well as by extending the opening hours to capitalise on the enviable 1am licence which allows bar trade and live music, which is not utilised at present."
