Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra, Kim and Kanye – some love affairs are written in the stars.
However, few love affairs are quite as strong or as steady as the bond between Scotland and Italian food.
Fall in love with la cucina Italia all over again with today’s Big Deal at Il Posto restaurant in the luxurious Mar Hall Resort.
Five star resort
Mar Hall is a luxury, five-star, golf and spa resort located within a tranquil 240 acre woodland estate.
Just fifteen minutes from Glasgow, it has played host to everybody from Neil Diamond to Kylie and, more recently, Beyoncé and Katy Perry.
Head Chef Marc Honeyman serves delicious and authentic Italian food in Il Posto while the views over Mar Hall’s golf course and the Kilpatrick Hills, especially from the decking area, are gorgeous.
A new addition to Mar Hall’s attractions, Il Posto serves much loved Italian classics with an emphasis on freshness and bold flavours.
Available Thursday to Monday, from noon to 6pm, this splendid offer is for two people to enjoy two courses (starter and main course or main course and dessert) at Il Posto.
As part of the offer, diners will enjoy a glass of wine or beer as they admire the views and make their choices from the following menu:

Set in the grounds of the 5 star Golf & Spa Resort, this offer would be fantastic for a relaxing lunch for a family of four or a day out with friends.
Il Posto is attracting enthusiastic reviews on TripAdvisor. This is what one diner had to say of their experiences:
‘Contemporary and stylish Italian. Good choice of dishes but concise enough to avoid the trap of pages of options. Reasonable choice of wine either by the bottle or glass. The restaurant is warm, friendly and contemporary. The service was excellent and well paced and the food was beautifully prepared. Can’t fault our meal which we considered good value for money and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.’
On Il Posto’s 5pm page, one reviewer left this comment just last week:
‘First time visit, won’t be the last. Lovely food in a great location.’ Rating 4/5
If Italian food makes your heart beat that little faster then today’s Big Deal with Il Posto should set your pulse racing.
