Best Italian Restaurants in Glasgow

The tastiest pasta, pizza and more authentic Italian food in Glasgow

Best Italian restaurants in Glasgow


Glasgow’s Italian dining scene may have never been more diverse. While the classic trattoria-style restaurants are still thriving, there’s a lot more to the city’s eating-out options than pasta and pizza. Many places now have a focus on smaller dishes and equal importance is placed on the wine list, with more unusual regional Italian wines available by the glass. Alongside an eclectic array of delicatessens offering imported Italian produce, Scottish ingredients are also very much to the fore, with a fair few menus bringing flavours of the Mediterranean to fresh, local meat and seafood, as well as adding an Italian angle to traditional Scottish dishes.
