*International cuisine spreading in smaller cities
*Quarter of Glasgow's restaurants are Italian
Culinary snobs take note: it is not London but Glasgow that is the true home of Italian dining, while the English capital comes top of the kebab league, according to a new survey.
The Frequency of Overseas Dishes (Food) study, conducted by MSN Local Search, found that Glasgow has more Italian restaurants per square mile than anywhere else in the country. More than a quarter (26%) of the city's restaurants have an Italian theme.
