Italian restaurant in Partick
Rossini brings traditional cuisine from the Apulia region of Italy to Glasgow’s West End. The restaurant is run by husband and wife team Maurizio and Ester Rossini, who moved from Italy to Glasgow twelve years ago. Having previously helmed the popular North Star cafe on Queen Margaret Drive, Rossini is the result of their dream to bring the dishes of Maurizio’s home region, Apulia, to the streets of Glasgow. All dishes on the menu are authentic and the wine list is chosen by the couple themselves.
Traditional dishes from Apulia
All of the dishes on the menu at Rossini are authentic to the region of Apulia. These include Orecchiette Alla Barese, a home made small pasta shapes tossed with Evo, turnip tops and pecorino cheese with a hint of chilli, and Tiella, an arborio rice, potato and west coast mussels casserole served with cherry tomatoes slow cooked in the oven.
Guests will also recognise classic Italian dishes like arancini, caprese salad and lasagna.
Those with a sweet tooth can indulge in the dessert menu which includes Italian favourites like tiramisu, pannacotta and artisan Italian ice cream.
