Serving fresh, authentic Italian cuisine since 1978, A Little Taste of Italy Ristorante Teatro brings a slice of continental life to Glasgow city centre. Just across from the King’s Theatre, the restaurant is the ideal place for a pre-theatre meal, and hosts live music at the weekend.

On the Ristorante Teatro menu, freshness and Italian authenticity are both treated importantly. Ingredients are locally sourced, with key items imported directly from Italy, giving diners the best of both worlds. From antipasto platters perfect for sharing, there is also a selection of fresh pasta dishes, fresh Scottish beef, and vegetarian options. If there is a desired dish that does not feature on the menu, the chefs will do their best to prepare it. All items on the menu – from bread to desserts – are made freshly in the restaurant each day.

As well as a selection of Italian and international wines, Ristorante Teatro Glasgow also mixes up a range of bold cocktails, and serves beers and fine spirits.

A Little Taste of Italy Ristorante Teatro is just 3 minutes’ walk from Charing Cross (Glasgow) Rail Station, and a 7-minute walk from Buchanan Street Station.

    We were booked through the website however due to being overbooked we’re then booked into the sister restaurant, the food was of great quality however drinks over filled with mixer, not enough staff and felt like we had been squashed in. Was ok even with the good quality food we won’t be back to either restaurant

    We choose this restaurant every time we visit the Kings Theatre. Booking online is was and straight forward and the confirmation phone call is appreciated. The food and wine are always lovely- patè & lasagne is my personal favourite. It is always busy and can feel quite crammed in but it adds to the friendly atmosphere. On our past couple of visits there was a guitar player which added to the ambience. Would recommend and we will return.

    My dining companions were disappointed with the chicken arrabiata and the sponge in the tiramisu was very dry. The tables are too close together, everyone was packed in like sardines but felt particularly sorry for those seated along the wall as they were subjected to customers squeezing past to access the toilets. I noticed that every single person accessing the toilets, including me, felt obliged to apologise to the customers they were so obviously disturbing. There was a constant flow of traffic going in and out of the toilets, it must have been dreadful, particularly for the young couple seated literally inches from the toilet door. How they even managed to hold conversation beats me, everyone was constantly apologising to them. So... squeezing people in like sardines to earn as much as possible defeats the purpose because I, for this reason alone, will not be back and neither will my friends. The food was average but that can happen on a particular night and then be brilliant on another night so the chef is forgiven but not the restaurant owner whose greed has compromised customer comfort and possibly safety as well.

    Had a lovely pre theatre dinner , restaurant was very busy but staff were brilliant. Food was good we all had something different & each dish enjoyed. They had a man playing a guitar which sounded great but a little bit obstructing as he was sat on staircase ? Great location for the theatre & out in plenty of time for our show .

    Busy, wee restaurant. Good is fab - wine is delish and the service is first class. My favourite pre-theatre go to.

    Had an excellent pre theatre dinner here with 4 friends prior to going to a show at the Kings Theatre. It is a small restaurant with a great buzz about it. The menu offers a varied choice and the staff are very friendly and the service is excellent. Will definitely return if going to another show at the Kings.
