Gusto aiming to bring a taste of Italy to city centre food lovers

A former bank in Glasgow is set to become a glamorous new Italian restaurant following a £1.3million makeover.

Food lovers will have the chance to visit Gusto Restaurant and Bar on Bothwell Street from 11am on Saturday, April 11.

The A-Listed former Clydesdale bank building has been revamped into the city's newest sophisticated Italian restaurant.

The 150-cover venue, which includes an outdoor terrace space for 30, serves a modern twist on Italian brasserie classics.

There are 12 types of pizza (including a truffle infused flavour) and tasty pasta dishes plus less common offerings such as butternut squash ravioli and artichoke tortellini.

There will also be a selection of exclusive mains and specials which are only available at the Glasgow venue.

The building's interior design is a throwback to the grand cafes of Europe with plenty of nods to modern Italian culture, including solid parquet flooring, tan leather booths and marble table tops.

Elegant brass accents and touches of art deco styling are used throughout, while there is a square central bar where you can enjoy one of the 100 cocktails on offer.

Gusto's Business Development Manager, Gordon McGuire, said: "We're very excited about Gusto opening as Glasgow is such a vibrant and metropolitan city.

"We've put a lot of time and effort into getting all the little things with the venue spot on, so hopefully the people of Glasgow will enjoy what we've got to present.

"There's a real touch of class and elegance mixed with a lively and energetic atmosphere.

"We see ourselves as more than just a restaurant and style bar; we aim to be a hub of social activity for the people of Glasgow."

Bookings are now live via the website or by calling 0141 227 6270.
