Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

With a central marble bar as its focal point, this busy, modern Italian in Glasgow’s Finnieston is a great little spot for cocktails and snacks, or something a bit more substantial. Having recently moved away from the ‘small plates’ approach to dining, the menu now takes a more traditional starter/main format. Sizzling chilli and garlic king prawns and carpaccio of beef with rocket and parmesan are two particular highlights from the starters. Invoking authentic Italian flavours, their osso bucco, a rich veal shin ragù, is oven-baked for no less than eight hours and served with a classic accompaniment of creamy risotto alla milanese. Zuppa di pesce is more of a stew than a soup with an unctuous tomato sauce. Desserts can be a bit heavy-duty with cheesecake, tiramisu and chocolate lasagne among the offerings, as well as pear cannelloni – sweet ricotta encased in crêpes, with a deeply flavoured pear and caramel sauce. The wine list suits most tastes and budgets, with all available by the glass, alongside a list of expertly blended classic cocktails and flavoured bellinis.
