About Crossing The Rubicon
Have to give top marks as the new nan revaluation called ananzilla to hit the restaurant scene in Glasgow was totally amazing, the best nan and curry (all in one) I have ever experienced. Will be recommending to all my friends to try. Will definitely be back. Well done, guys.
Authentic Indian, low-key dining
Good quality Indian with Scottish twist. Food was too salty in our opinion though which was a big deal and took away from the great taste.
Hip pizza hangout in the West End
Crossing the Rubicon is a colourful bar and diner on Great Western Road that takes a creative approach to the classic pizza. Decorated with mirror balls and graffiti of flying elephants, it is the ideal spot to enjoy a chilled out meal. Many of its craft beers and ales are supplied by Glasgow’s Drygate Brewery, meaning there is an interesting, rotating range of draught and cask lines.
Regular Meet the Brewer nights add to the fun. This is a great spot for a lunch treat or an evening pizza feast with friends before hitting the bars of the West End.
Artisan pizzas and craft beers
Crossing the Rubicon’s innovative pizza menu offers many exciting and flavoursome combinations.
Choices include The Germanicus, a rolled stromboli pizza with bratwurst, onions, roast peppers and mozzarella on a tomato base; the Ostrogoth, topped with caramelised onion and bacon on a crème fraîche base, and the Vandal, topped with bratwurst, crispy potato and mozzarella on a curry ketchup base.
Vegetarian options include the Cimbri, an intriguing pickled apple, sour cream and mozzarella combination on a roast pumpkin base. Vegan cheese can also be requested.
