Fratelli Sarti is a Glasgow institution. All three city centre branches of the Italian outfit are endlessly popular thanks to their reputation for good-quality Italian cooking and warm familial service. The grandest of these is the flagship Renfield Street branch, housed in a restored Victorian banking hall lit by crystal chandeliers. It is an impressive high-ceilinged wood and marble marvel. The semi-basement Bath Street branch houses an eye-catching collection of Italian decorations, from hanging salamis to shelves laden with wines, while the Wellington Street branch is smaller, with a pleasing European timelessness and red and white checked tables outside to catch a bit of the sunshine. The menu features all the usual suspects, consisting of mainstay pizza and pasta dishes all cooked with high-quality Italian ingredients and executed extremely well. Seafood and meat offerings tread into more unfamiliar territory with equal success. Slow-cooked rabbit with black olives, rosemary and white wine is aparticular highlight showcasing the skill of the chefs at work in the kitchen. In keeping with the family atmosphere, the Renfield Street branch offers movie mornings and pizza-making classes for kids. Wines are well selected and reasonably priced, with knowledgeable staff on hand to give advice on matching them to particular dishes.
