This “buzzy” and “friendly” two-year-old, in a city-centre Scottish baronial landmark Cathedral House, is a “nice addition to Glasgow” by all accounts. It was launched by Anna Parker and chef-husband Dan (ex-of London venues Darby’s and The Dairy), who fell in love with Italian cooking on their honeymoon and have brought “a different kind of Italian” to Anna’s hometown. Expect much “sourcing locally from small suppliers”, as well as a focus on fermenting, preserving and curing.

Summary

Native Glaswegian Anna Parker and her chef-husband Dan (ex-head chef of London’s Darby’s and The Dairy) launched this city-centre newcomer in August 2021. It occupies the Scottish Baronial landmark, ‘Cathedral House’, with a restaurant seating 32 and a covered garden seating 40. The seasonal menu is Italian-inspired and ambitious: from home-cured salamis to almond milk gelato.

"This restaurant in an elegant building serves Italian food with a modern twist rather than the stereotypical choices found in more traditional Italian establishments. Thus, linguine with lobster and cod cheeks was followed by monkfish with wilted greens and seaweed butter, completed with an excellent affogato for dessert."
