Family –run Italian in West End
Opened in 2014, Casa Russo is a family-run Italian restaurant on Byres Road. The Russo family run several, award-winning Italians throughout Glasgow and have developed a reputation for warm, relaxed hospitality and authentic Italian dishes.
A first floor restaurant, Casa Russo is invitingly decorated in a rustic style – terracotta colours, villa style shutters, Italian rural scenes and even a lemon tree.
Tuscan recipes made with Scottish produce
The chefs at Casa Russo mix Italian culinary flair with fresh, seasonal Scottish produce. Their dishes aim to showcase traditional flavours as you might find in a Tuscan home.
As well as fixed price lunch offers, Casa Russo has a full a la carte. There is a wide range of pasta, pizza, gnocchi and risotto choices as well as chicken, beef and seafood dishes. Among the recommended starters is a dish of fresh Italian smoked cheese and aubergine slices. These are breaded, deep-fried and stacked with fresh basil then topped with a tomato and oregano sauce.
Among others, the kitchen recommends main courses such as the seafood soup and the house chicken dish – a supreme of chicken marinated with garlic, rosemary, chillies and extra virgin olive oil. It is served with a sauce made from tomato, fresh basil and wild mushrooms, shallots and Chianti wine plus roast potatoes.
