Following their massive success with Amore Merchant City and Amore d’Italia on Alexandra Parade, the Perella family have now opened Glasgow’s very first Enoteca restaurant with the opening of The Italian Caffe. After impressing the Glaswegian dining public for over 10 years with their authentic Italian cuisine and warm hospitality, this enterprising Italian family decided it was time to introduce the city to the concept of fine wine at great prices accompanied by small plates of the most deliciously innovative and classic Italian cuisine.
Wine plays a huge part in the offering at The Italian Caffe and the wine list is a well-chosen selection of Italian reds and whites along with some great Proseccos too. As for the food, expect small tapas style dishes that are brimming with flavour and deliciousness. The Italian roasted pork stuffed with garlic, rosemary, thyme and sage with a sage gravy is simply heavenly whilst seafood lovers will adore the mussels cooked in either a tomato broth or with white wine and cream. Little crab cakes comes with a lemon and fennel salad and a roasted pepper and chilli sauce for an extra kick whilst the grilled fresh green asparagus with creamy lemon and chive mascarpone cheese sauce is a true taste of spring. Mini pizzas and small plates of the most delicious pasta accompany a glass of wine perfectly and make for the most wonderful meal.
The Italian Caffe is a chic and stylish dining room, just like its elder siblings, with cool leather banquettes and a well-stocked bar. The vibe is buzzing and prices more than reasonable for the quality on offer.
