Who fancies a taste of sunshine while we wait for the Scottish winter to sling its hook?
Snap up some Mediterranean flavours on today’s Big Deal on tapas for two at Casa Italia Ristorante on the corner of Clydebank’s Montrose Street and Kilbowie Road.
Housed in a converted church, Casa Italia Ristorante is a welcoming, family-run restaurant, offering classic Italian cooking with a subtle emphasis on southern Italian flavours.
Simple Italian classics
Fresh, locally sourced and seasonal are the watchwords in the Casa Italia kitchens and the chefs are guided by carefully handed down family recipes.
Available noon to 6pm, seven days a week, today’s offer is for two people to tuck into a selection of six tapas plus one focaccia from the a la carte menu at Casa Italia.
Wide range of authentic dishes
There is a great range of dishes to choose from.
Try the traditional garlic focaccia with marinated chopped tomatoes, rosemary and rock sea salt or the focaccia formaggio – garlic focaccia topped with melted mozzarella cheese.
The tapas menu includes seafood options such as the calamari, deep-fried white bait and steamed mussels in an arrabbiata sauce.
More meaty options run from the beef meatballs to the chicken and black pudding in a Napoli sauce.
For something a little different, you might choose the Kilbowie bon bons – battered black pudding and haggis balls in a brandy sauce.
Veggie options include grilled halloumi cheese; pan-fried mushrooms in creamy garlic sauce and frittata – the ever popular Italian omelette flavoured with roasted peppers and potatoes.
Casa Italia Ristorante is a relative newcomer to 5pm Dining but is already garnering happy reviews:
‘Lovely lunch. We had the selection of meats with olives and mozzarella to share as a starter with some warm, home-made focaccia, this was superb. We had the La Scala Burger which was very good but too much after the starter. We took a doggie bag home. Food and service very good. Would recommend and will visit again. Give it a try!’
There is on-street parking by Casa Italia Ristorante and the restaurant shares a car park with the pub across the road.
Nearby attractions include Clyde Shopping Centre and Kilbowie Retail Park so this offer would be an ideal way to break up a shopping trip.
It could also be used for a catch-up with a friend; an alternative to eating lunch in the office or a leisurely weekend treat.
