Italian restaurants are a dime a dozen in Glasgow, but Don Costanzo is a name that really manages to stand out from the rest. A fixture in Glasgow’s Italian dining scene, Don Costanzo has been winning over hearts of foodies for over thirty years, first as the Caprese Restaurant in the city centre, before moving over to the West End. You’ll find this Italian gem located in a townhouse basement on the picturesque Woodside Crescent, just a short walk from Charing Cross subway station. Book a table now and head on over to Don Costanzo for refined Italian classics, from mouthwatering meat and seafood dishes to pastas made fresh from scratch – bellissimo!
Amazing!! Everything from the lovely staff, giving us a warm welcome, and tempting us with the fresh “specials menu”, a great selection on their ala Carter menu and the delicious wines. My steak with pepper sauce was mouthwatering. Can’t fault anything. We’ll be back very soon
The most authentic Italian Ristorante in Glasgow, no pizza here. Situated in a nice terrace with very warm and welcoming, friendly and engaging staff. The food is excellent, the specials to die for and the recommendations top class with the chef willing to discuss personal needs.
Great atmosphere. Fantastic friendly service. Wonderful food. What more would you want and they got us served in good time for the Panto! Always a fantastic restaurant.
Fab home made cooking & best home made tiramisu ever! Lovely family atmosphere and welcoming and attentive staff, well worth the visit. Will definitely be back!
The Caprese was long my favourite restaurant in Glasgow and then I moved away. This was my fist visit back for a while and my first visit to the replacement restaurant Don Costanzo. It was as good as the old restaurant. The welcome from Costanzo's daughter was warm and friendly, the pasta y fagioli (this time with lentils and not beans) was as good as ever and the chicken with mushrooms and tomatoes with sauté potatoes was superb. My wife's king prawns was first class. We now live too far away to be back regularly - but we will be back.
Good food, good service the ambience was just right everything an Italian restaurant should be right down to the owner himself. Who else but a chef patron could get away with both insulting his customers whilst making them laugh and feeling right at home. Cannot wait to go back.
Fantastic place, lovely staff and amazing food, couldn’t recommend it highly enough! The Chef came out to speak to everyone at the end of the meal and convinced us to have the cheesecake when we couldn’t eat a another morsel, great decision!
First time visit to the restaurant and we were not disappointed: food was superb, house vino was value for money; the service attentive and efficient. We will be returning in the not too distant future. Highly recommended.
Great food and service. The specials starter of aubergine parmiagiana was fantastic and the Spagetti vongole was one of the best I have had. Also the Spaghetti King prawns was equally good. Will definitely be back!
Excellent and a real hidden gem. Loved it and will absolutely be back soon for another visit. Best Vongole ever and the parma ham was great. Reasonably priced and great service. What more could you want.
