It’s very hard to fault Al Dente when it comes to authentic Italian food. Situated right in the heart of Glasgow City Centre on Stockwell Street, this may not be the first place you think of to get truly traditional Italian fare – but it will be the first one you recommend to anybody once you’ve enjoyed a meal here. Run by a pair with decades of combined experience running an exclusive Italian restaurant on the Isle of Capri and former Merchant City favourite La Piazzetta, Al Dente is a place you can be sure of getting authentic traditional food done to the highest restaurant standards. The hearty pastas and proper Italian pizzas are safe bets, or you could try one of Al Dente’s fabulous fresh seafood specialties, though whatever you choose you’ll be in for a treat and a great experience in Al Dente’s atmospheric Stockwell Street setting!
Lovely prawn starter followed by penne arabiata....nice staff made me comfortable as I was on my own. Quiet when I was there but still a good experience
Authentic Italian food and wine, served by friendly but not obtrusive staff (mainly Italians) in a nice atmosphere despite the slightly 'modern' feel. Very quiet on a Wednesday evening but deserves to be the 'go to place' for reasonably priced pizza, pasta or main courses.
Delicious pasta, kind service. Definitely returning. The clam mussel pasta and small salad make an excellent combination. Fun servers, just ask and they’ll make it work out.
