About Pulcinella Restaurant
Review of Pulcinella
Had a lovely evening. Food and service were excellent
Really excellent food with great portion sizes. Staff were just the right balance of attentive. It's a lovely restaurant, too. A little quiet, but then we did go on a Wednesday night. Great value for money, will definitely go again.
Independent Italian restaurant in Glasgow city centre
An independent restaurant on Hope Street, Pulcinella has long been a city centre favourite for Italian food lovers. Decked out with Italian flags, checked table cloths and large murals, the decor is charmingly traditional.
The set lunch and early evening menus are popular with local workers, shoppers and theatre-goers. As you might expect in an Italian restaurant, a warm welcome seems to have been embedded in the DNA of Pulcinella’s staff.
Italian classics cooked from scratch
At Pulcinella, the food is freshly prepared and served in generous portions. As well as a wide range of thin-based, crispy pizza and traditional pasta choices, Pulcinella serves a popular selection of antipasti, meat and fish classics.
From chicken Parmigiana to steak in a brandy and peppercorn sauce via the house veal, cooked with onions, mushrooms and a cream, there are plenty of carni dishes. Fish lovers are just as well looked after whether diners choose a simple king prawns in garlic butter and white wine or the Mediterranean fish stew which is served with garlic bread.
