Further Information

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.

Excellent quality and variety of food and very attentive and friendly staff. A five star place to eat in my book. We had a birthday celebration there and the lady whose birthday it was said it had been her best birthday meal - ever! If you go, you will find an extremely extensive menu, but don't forget to ask to see the daily specials. The mussels, ravioli, and fillet steak were truly amazing! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. I am not in the habit of leaving tips but I did here, and it was very well deserved.

We had an excellent evening meal at Qua Italian. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are delightful and generate a very pleasant environment. We were introduced to the whole family who run the restaurant which was great fun. The meal itself was excellent - we had mussels to start which were delicious and were served in a wine sauce with freshly baked Italian bread. We followed with penne al pollo and pollo al diavola - both superb. Overall this was a brilliant meal and at a very reasonable price - and we will return.

The food, atmosphere and service were all excellent. This was our first time at Qua, but it will not be our last. Having spent years in Italy finding somewhere in Glasgow which strikes the balance of intense flavour and simple quality ingredients in a relaxed setting which still feels special for a celebration meal (it was our silver wedding) is not easy but Qua does this, reminding us of some of our favourite restaurants in Edinburgh, when we were first married, Silvio's and Pasquale. We might have found our new favourite.

Food excellent as always ,3 pasta dishes and a steak Rossini special plus desserts, husband got olive oil on his hands and waiter had a hand wipe for him within minutes without us even asking. Atmosphere relaxed. Would not hesitate returning and would highly recommend to friends. Waiter Stephen very informative regarding menu and ingredients, oh and lemonchello with Bill nice ending to meal.

A friendly welcome and the best seat in the restaurant was a great start to our lunch. The staff are so friendly and this creates a wonderful relaxed atmosphere but with very attentive service. The food was, as usual, lovely with some great Minestrone and Soup of the day and regular main course choices like penne arabiatta, pizza and Sea Bass. Our lunch was excellent value with coffees and a couple of drinks. This is still my favourite Italian Restaurant.

We had time for a full meal, instead of our normal pre-theatre fare (which we also like very much). Lots of choice, with some inventive combinations (melone alla Qua) and both a risotto pescatore and a spaghetti marinara which were flavoursome and loaded with seafood, including some excellent mussels. An unusual Italian rose wine turned out to be a hit. We like the authentic atmosphere of this place - the Italian staff are informative, friendly and efficient. This will continue to be a regular restaurant for us.
