We’re not going to say which is which but Glasgow and Italian food go together like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.
Get dancing with today’s Big Deal on a superb Italian meal at Barolo Grill on Mitchell Street.
Featuring a stylish interior and authentic Italian cooking skills, Barolo Grill is a popular Italian which is regarded by many as one of Glasgow’s finest.
The city centre hotspot was named the Best New Restaurant in the 2012 Entertainment Guide Awards while Tam Cowan gave it an awesome 25/25 when he reviewed it for the Daily Record.
As if that’s not enough, we’ll also mention that Joanna Blythman of the Sunday Herald gave it 9/10 when she reviewed Barolo Grill shortly after it opened.
Today’s Big Deal is the perfect way to see why so many people are raving about Barolo Grill.
The offer is for one diner to enjoy a three course meal from the 5pm Big Deal menu. With a range of six starters, six main courses and two desserts to choose from, diners can experience a wide selection of all that Barolo Grill’s kitchen team have to offer.
Typical starters on the Big Deal menu include crispy calamari with a garlic and limoncello-infused aioli; breaded wild mushroom risotto balls with a truffle sauce and pasta e fagioli, the traditional Piedmontese pasta and borlotti bean soup made with fine vegetables, black kale, garlic croutons and shredded Prosciutto.
Among the main courses on the menu are the spicy grilled Tuscan sausage with creamy celeriac mash, Fontina cheese and a black truffle sauce; sea bream with a mixed Italian herb and garlic salsa or the chicken supreme which is roasted with porcini mushrooms in a wholegrain mustard sauce and served with sautéed potatoes.
For a £5 supplement per person, diners can also order the bistecca di manzo – eight ounces of prime Scottish sirloin steak, cooked to your liking and served with chunky hand cut chips and a peppercorn sauce.
For dessert, choose between the chef’s dessert of the day or, for a supplement of £2, the house cheese platter, a great selection of fine Italian cheeses served with oatcakes and homemade chutney.
Right in the heart of the city, Barolo Grill is two minutes walk from Central Station, Queen Street Station and the Buchanan St Underground Station.
But its handy location is not the only reason why more than 400 5pm diners who have eaten there have given it a cracking combined rating of 4/5.
