Explore Harden's - The restaurant guide created by you for you

survey result


Built in 1914 (and once described as Scotland’s most glamorous tram stop), Marco Giannasi’s quirky-looking Southside fixture was restored in 1994; and serves a large and affordable Italian menu, also incorporating pizza and pasta. Feedback is limited but very enthusiastic. Top Tip: good pre-theatre deals.
