Beautifully prepared meal as always. We both ate the vegetarian option on the pre theatre menu this time as I enjoyed it so much last week
Always a glorious meal!
Consistently wonderful food at Oscars. The pre theatre menu changes weekly and the dishes are expertly prepared to order by the skilled chef and his team.
Popular Newton Means Italian restaurant
Oscars is a friendly Italian restaurant tucked away on Ayr Road in the Newton Mearns area of Glasgow’s south side. The atmospheric basement restaurant is comfortable and offers a warm welcome to guests and effortlessly maintains its reputation for great service and freshly prepared Italian cuisine. Oscars is a popular choice for locals and those from out of area for celebrating special occasions, a romantic dinner for two, as well as relaxed family meals with highchairs available for children.
A varied menu with Italian & European dishes
As only fresh ingredients are used by the chefs at Oscars the menus can change, but still include items to satisfy all palates. The classic bruschetta and stuffed mushrooms often feature, with the tempura sole and sweet chilli dipping sauce a particular hit with guests. Pasta dishes include the favourite lasagne al forno, penne carbonara, as well as the spaghetti pescatore with an abundance of mixed fish & shellfish.
Other main courses worthy of mention are the restaurant’s thin and crispy homemade pizzas along with the veal alla Romana (pan-fried, topped with Parma ham & mozzarella, finished with sage, sherry, demi glace and cream); the scampi poached in Pernod & tarragon cream sauce, served with steamed rice; and the chargrilled sirloin steak served ‘Oscars style’, topped with baby spinach, capers and garlic butter.
