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.

    Nice pre-theatre location. Good typical Italian food. We both had pasta dishes which were nice and service was good.

    Excellent restaurant been before and will be back - food is first class and best tiramisu I have ever had

  • ((*** 7 November 2017 by Jacqueline Kinnear from Ayrshire

    Ideal location for Pre-Theatre meal; food was good & reasonably priced however, the venue has a narrow, descending staircase into the restaurant, which itself, is extremely small with tables set very close together & some chairs positioned inappropriately, resulting in restricted access & awkward situations for customers & also for staff moving around.

    Lovely, friendly and well priced. The food was wonderful.

    Food was delicious. Staff were friendly. Choice was a bit limited on the pre-theatre menu.

    Booked above for pre theatre the following night, but they called me next day to say they were full and were sending me to sister restaurant Alla Italia on Pitt St.
    Later called me again to say my 5:30 table was not available but they would have table ready for mr at 6pm. They said they knew I was going to theatre and promised me I would still have plenty of time.
    My niece arrived at 5:45 to be told my table had been given away and we did not now have a booking. When I arrived at 6:55 armed with the booking text and call records, they said they realised they had made an error and I did have a table which would be ready in 2 minutes.
    15 minutes later after waiting outside in the rain, they again assured me table would be 2 minutes.
    They gave us the menus while we stood in tiny entrance to give our order and they would make sure we were served in plenty time for 7:30 show.
    10 minutes later we attempted to walk out when suddenly our table was ready. We sat down and all ordered immediately.
    After asking twice when our food would be ready, we again stood up to leave when miraculously our food arrived. This was at 6:57.
    We ate it and left at 7:10 having to ask twice for the bill.
    No discount or any apology was offered.
    Food was average.
    I would certainly not recommend this restaurant. It is far too crammed with tables, service is awful and food average.
    Definitely do not book a pre theatre meal, unless you enjoy gobbling down food at the last minute and rushing to theatre, with an after dose of indigestion!

    Good meal, good service, bit noisy, but that was just the large number of (mostly) ladies eating before the show at the Kings.
    No problem with booking.

    Excellent food and very friendly, helpful staff. Had booked a deal with 3 courses and a bottle of Prosecco and we were also given a complimentary champagne cocktail with the dessert. Lovely! Restaurant was busy but service excellent and a lovely atmosphere.
