About Alla Italia Ristorante Italiano
Visited with 6 friends for a pretheatre meal. We chose a variety of dishes and we all enjoyed our food. The food was well presented and to a good standard. The staff were friendly and the surroundings are nice
One of our favourite restaurants
Yet again we had a beautiful lunch here. Excellent value for money, beautifully presented food, and service that a lot of places could learn from. We will be back!
Cosy city centre Italian
Opened in early 2014, Alla Italia is a Italian restaurant on Pitt Street in Glasgow city centre. As well as the welcoming dining room, it has a cocktail bar where guests can enjoy drinks while listening to the live background music played at weekends. It is very handy for the nearby King’s Theatre but just as popular with lunching office workers, shoppers, parties and dining couples.
Authentic Italian classics with fresh produce
The chefs at Alla Italia take great pride in locally sourcing as many ingredients as possible. From the dishes on the set menus to the a la carte, everything is freshly prepared and cooked daily. All diners are given complimentary focaccia, olive oil and olives to nibble while selecting their meal.
As well as a good selection of classic Italian pasta and pizza, the menu includes dishes such as the scallops with lemon butter and the poached egg, Parma ham and Parmesan on garlic bread. The carefully chosen wine list ranges from Italian Pinot Grigio to New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc.
Perfect for pre-theatre meals
Alla Italia is situated on Pitt Street, a short distance from the O2 ABC and just around the corner from the King’s Theatre. Taxis to the Hydro and SECC will take five to ten minutes. There are numerous bus routes and taxi stands on Sauchiehall Street. Queen Street and Central railway stations are both within a fifteen minute walk.
