Directly across from the Tron theatre, Esca is in the heart of Glasgow’s artistic quarter and enjoys a keen following of pre-theatre diners as well as couples, family groups and large parties – a particular speciality. Romantically lit by candles at night, the popular Italian offers and intimate dining experience and has an eye-catching interior which reflect the Tuscan influences.
