Our Story

The Story of Via Italia

Via Italia was created from an idea formed on a trip to London to check out new food ideas. We wanted to start an Italian Street food idea, we could sell from a West End burger van we had our eye on. After a Summer holiday in Miami and seeing the way the American street food was expanding, Marco, Mario and friends put their heads together and with inspiration and ideas formed over the last few years came up with Via Italia.


Although with all new ventures, we had our set backs, not being able to acquire the burger van being our biggest disappointment, but that led us into looking at retail units making all our ideas bigger and the launch of Via Italia Glasgow at our debut site at Union Street, just next to Glasgow’s Central station.
