About Pulcinella Restaurant
Excellent food and friendly service as always.
Our party of 7 were seated in an excellent table adjacent to the front window. Once seated we were given the menu and asked what we would like to drink, and were advised that since we had booked through 5pm the house wines beers and soft drinks would have a 25% discount. This meant a bottle of excellent wine cost just over £12. The food we chose, from the pretty extensive menu was excellent and the service was faultless. We are already planning our next trip to this excellent restaurant.
Independent Italian restaurant in Glasgow city centre
An independent restaurant on Hope Street, Pulcinella has long been a city centre favourite for Italian food lovers. Decked out with Italian flags, checked table cloths and large murals, the decor is charmingly traditional.
The set lunch and early evening menus are popular with local workers, shoppers and theatre-goers. As you might expect in an Italian restaurant, a warm welcome seems to have been embedded in the DNA of Pulcinella’s staff.
Italian classics cooked from scratch
At Pulcinella, the food is freshly prepared and served in generous portions. As well as a wide range of thin-based, crispy pizza and traditional pasta choices, Pulcinella serves a popular selection of antipasti, meat and fish classics.
From chicken Parmigiana to steak in a brandy and peppercorn sauce via the house veal, cooked with onions, mushrooms and a cream, there are plenty of carni dishes. Fish lovers are just as well looked after whether diners choose a simple king prawns in garlic butter and white wine or the Mediterranean fish stew which is served with garlic bread.
