Drawing on a grand tradition of Scottish-Italian cooking, Qua Italian in Glasgow’s Merchant City brings a taste of Tuscany and Rome to the Dear Green Place. They offer a set lunches, a pre-theatre selection and full a la carte menu in the evenings, allowing them to cater for all eventualities. Their location on Ingram Street places them close to countless bars and nightspots, so you can be sure of giving your evening the best possible start when you visit.
Eating Italian food is always a pleasure, given the shared history and migration between the West of Scotland and Italy, and Qua Italian on Ingram Street in the Merchant City, stands proudly in this tradition. Their menu features a wide range of dishes from the bel paese, particularly from Tuscany and Rome, and often with an authentically Scottish edge. The squid in their calamari is local, their lamb chops are also locally sourced: even the house pate is served on traditional Scottish oatcakes.
Of course, all your Italian favourites are featured on the menu at Qua Italian. Pizzas, pasta, risotto and steaks are all available down on Ingram Street, alongside lesser seen regional dishes such as penne alla paesana, a house-speciality of oven-baked pork, Italian sausage and cinnamon. Qua Italian is certainly a welcome addition to the already-excellent restaurant scene in the Merchant City, and the discerning diners of Glasgow agree – so make sure you book your table in advance.
Highly recommend!! Fantastic food, fabulous service and great cost atmosphere - also fab background music playing! Lovely late lunch and reasonably priced. Would highly recommend and will definitely be back! 😄
Food was excellent, value for money, service outstanding as always. One of our favourite restaurants in Glasgow and the service and food are the reasons we return again and again.
We had the lunch menu which was a very varied choice, the food was excellent and portion size very generous. The service is like a small family business, difficult to achieve in a larger city centre restaurant. We will definitely return.
