As far as thrillingly fabulous gifts go, surely dinner for two in The Scotsman’s Best Restaurant of 2018 has got to be up there at the top?
Especially when that restaurant also features in both The Times Top 100 in the UK and the Waitrose Good Food Guide (and was recently given a 10/10 by Herald food critic, Joanna Blythman).
And did we mention that it’s an 100% Italian family-owned dining spot right in the heart of the West End of Glasgow?
So if you’d like to win major brownie points, then treat someone special to a two course meal for two at Eusebi Deli Restaurant (prosecco is included, obviously).
Popular West End Italian restaurant
Eusebi is in the leafy Woodlands area, a short stroll away from Kelvinbridge Underground and across from Kelvingrove Park. A big part of its popularity is that it combines the chilled out vibe of a neighbourhood Italian with a fine dining feel to the cuisine.
Eusebi actually started out as a deli in the East End 43 years ago, with this West End location opening in 2015, to major acclaim across the UK.
Inside, the feel is totally La Dolce Vita, with comfy diner-style seating, chic decor and a buzzing atmosphere (all that’s missing is laughing Italians zooming up to the door on mopeds).
Enjoy it all for yourself with this Big Deal on a two course meal for two from the 5pm menu, including a glass of prosecco each. It is available Sundays to Fridays for lunch and evening dining until 21st March 2019.
First class Italian dining
Eusebi’s ethos is cooking from scratch and slowing things down. All pasta is made daily at the restaurant and you can even ask to see the ‘pasta lab’ in action when you visit.
With this offer, you can enjoy a starter and main from the special 5pm selection.
Individual dishes can change, but expect starters such as the salt cod arancini balls with saffron aioli, the house-made ricotta with salt-baked beets & blood orange and the game & pistachio terrine.
For mains, you might find yourself struggling to choose between the handmade Sardinian gnocchi in slow-cooked venison ragu, the Shetland cod with langoustine brodo & borlotti beans or the pizza Calabrian spice with tomato, mozzarella, nduja, fennel sausage & mushrooms.
Dessert isn’t included in this deal, but expect to be tempted by the fresh Italian bakery goods on display. You have been warned.
Eusebi Deli Restaurant has been gaining rave reviews on TripAdvisor, so much so that it has earned itself a Certificate of Excellence. Here is a recent selection, edited for shortness:
‘...The menu, food, service and cocktails were all exemplary, and the ambience and surroundings really good. This is now my favourite restaurant in Glasgow!’
‘Amazing meal! Love this restaurant! Been a few times and it’s always fab. Tonight was especially great – due to our lovely waiter Yanis…all in all, a really lovely meal.’
‘Exquisite. Just the most beautiful high quality ingredients, simply but perfectly prepared. Fantastic food, wine and ambience. Neighbourhood Italian atmosphere with fine dining taste.’
A meal at a restaurant is always a welcome treat. But a meal at an authentic Italian that’s widely considered to be one of the best in the UK is really something special.
With prosecco thrown in as well, it’s everything you need for a dining experience to remember.
