Inviting Italian restaurant on Argyle Street
A second generation family-run Italian, Ristorante Piccolo Mondo has a long and successful tradition in Glasgow if not always on this exact site. In various capacities, the staff have run, owned and worked in several of Glasgow’s notable Italian restaurants and they have brought all of that experience together at Ristorante Piccolo Mondo on Argyle Street. It is a smart but inviting space with Tuscan murals, a warm colour scheme and glittering chandeliers all matching the warm and sparkling welcome of the staff.
Delicious, varied menu choices
The menus at Glasgow’s Ristorante Piccolo Mondo cover several Italian bases from traditional classics to what the owners term ‘new lifestyle Mediterranean dishes’. A quick lunch might consist of a starter Italian sausage and borlotti beans cooked with spices and tomato sauce followed by pasta tossed with fillets of chicken breast, Parma ham, white wine, petit pois, fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and cream.
Alternatively, take your time to explore Ristorante Piccolo Mondo’s seafood specialities like the potted prawns and the grilled seafood platter. If you like a little theatre with your evening meal then take a look at the flambé section of the a la carte. The staff will be happy to whip up a classic steak Diane in front of you, or wait until desserts and watch the burning liqueur dance around your crepes suzettes.
City centre location, close to Central Station
Whatever menu you choose from, Ristorante Piccolo Mondo is an impressive Italian in Glasgow city centre. The restaurant is a short walk from Central rail station as well as bus stops and taxi ranks.
