Mario’s Fish and Chip shop has come runner up in the Scottish Italian Awards 2018 in the Best Fish and Chips category.

The popular family-run takeaway in Giffnock has been serving up the Southside’s favourite fish and chips since 1984 when it was started by the De Marco family.

Tracey, who owns the takeaway with her husband Michael, said: “We are absoultely delighted to win the award.

“It was a chippy in Edinburgh that scooped the overall award so it’s great to know that we are the best in Glasgow – and the city is absolutely saturated in chippies!

“We’ve never done anything like this before, but I thought, ‘why not?’.

“I think I’d like to enter the Fish and Chips Awards for all the UK, but it is quite stressful!”

Tracey is now looking at fundraising events for Crohn’s disease.

She explained:“I’d like to use the shop in someway to fundraise for the Crohn’s charity or the clinic which treats my son.

“That’s what I’d like to focus on just now.”
