Cafe Antipasti Glasgow lasagne dish

The restaurant is situated on the famous Sauchiehall Street, just a short walk from Buchanan Street and is within walking distance of Glasgow's West End. 

The menu is full of Italian favourites along with other popular modern dishes with an Italian background. The restaurant was designed by Scottish craftsman, Paul Hodgkiss and has a fine balance of intricate ironwork along with individual woodcraft on every table. Café Antipasti provides a relaxing, warm and friendly atmosphere complete with extremely efficient service and, most importantly, delightful Italian food.
