About Ristorante Pieno
We had another lovely meal yesterday, the staff are so friendly and engaging. The food is delicious and also great value for money. I can’t see past the lasagna and the cherry ice cream. We had a few cocktails too which were great a bit pricey but they were well made. Can’t wait to go back again.
A Lovely New Italian!
First visit to this new Italian at the top of Hope Street, Glasgow (although was in it when it was a Chinese Restaurant!). Warm welcome and excellent service. We were the only customers for a time but others soon arrived and some atmosphere to a well laid-out and spacious eatery. Food was very good as was the wine (though a tad expensive) and we received a farewell drink of Limoncella! - a nice wee touch.
Family-run Italian in the city centre
Ristorante Pieno is a cosy Italian eating spot on Hope Street, right in the heart of Glasgow city centre. Opened in 2020, it offers lively vibes and delicious Italian aromas. Diners can choose from a range of dishes, from firm favourites to house specials.
Classic pizzas and pastas
All of the 12-inch pizzas at Pieno are stone-baked for extra flavour before being topped with fresh ingredients. Choices include the Calzone Di Carne stuffed with pepperoni, spicy chicken & ham, and the Pizza Vegetali with mixed roast vegetables, mozzarella & tomato basil sauce. For a bit of national pride, opt for the Pizza Scozzese with Stornoway black pudding.
A house speciality of the pasta section is the Penne Pieno with tender strips of chicken, pan- fried mushrooms, broccoli and red onion in a creamy sauce. Other choices include the spaghetti cozze with fresh mussels, served in your choice of sauce. If creamy risotto is more your thing, then you might enjoy risotto fungi with sautéed mushrooms in a garlic & white wine sauce. Meat lovers can tuck into choices like a 10z ribeye steak with peppercorn sauce or pollo Milanese with breaded chicken breast fillets.
