Italian Restaurants in Glasgow
1. Battlefield Rest Scottish restaurant in Glasgow 55 Battlefield Road - G42
It is as a family-friendly option that Marco Giannasi’s quirky Southside landmark – occupying a 1914 building once described as Scotland’s most glamorous tram stop – attracts most nominations; on the large Italian menu: pizza, pasta and a variety of affordable dishes.
2. Celentano's Italian restaurant in Glasgow 109 John Knox Street - G4
Opening August 2021 in Glasgow's Cathedral House building, from Darby's head chef Dean Parker and his wife Anna; Italian small and sharing plates from a low-waste kitchen.
3. Eusebi Deli Italian restaurant in Glasgow 152 Park Road - G4
Phenomenal small Italian deli of over four decades’ standing, a few minutes from Kelvinbridge subway station, which has its “counters of prepared deli produce and cakes and patisserie” but is also a notable destination thanks to its “amazing” cooking – “unfailingly well-prepared pasta in particular”, alongside antipasti and more substantial dishes. “Seemingly busy at all times of the day”, “staff are always so friendly and happy to explain the menu” but “service seems to suffer a bit from being so popular, particularly on the cramped ground floor (downstairs is a little more sedate and, dare I say, comfortable?)”.
4. Paesano Pizza Italian restaurant in Glasgow 94 Miller Street - G1
“I’ve been back more than 40 times, which says it all!”. These “truly excellent” and “really buzzy” pizza-stops in Glasgow’s city centre and West End are “really hard to beat” – the dough uses both yeast and sourdough and is proved for 48 hours for maximum Neapolitan-style authenticity. In August 2019 they announced a new sibling, Sugo, to launch in the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Herald Building, specialising in fresh homemade pasta.
6. Gandolfi Fish Fish & seafood restaurant in Glasgow 84 - 86 Albion Street - G1
