The Enoteca

The Italian Caffe is the first enoteca restaurant in Glasgow. It's a place to come and enjoy fine wine by the glass accompanied by mangiare al forno – food straight from the oven. And it's right in the heart of the Merchant City.

A particular style of Italian Caffe

Glasgow has long had a reputation for being home to some superb family run Italian cafes and restaurants. But the enoteca caffe is different to anything that's come before – in Glasgow that is.

Enotecas have evolved from the tavernae vinariae of classical Rome. These were places Romans would stop and enjoy a glass of wine and pass the time with other citizens. We think we can offer slightly more comfortable surroundings. 

By giving our customers over 50 wines to choose from, 28 of which are available by the glass, accompanied by small plates, piccolo piatti , of great Italian food we've created a haven for lovers of Italian restaurants. Have a look at our wine list and menu on this site.

A place to unwind

It's no coincidence that our enoteca is where it is. We want people to treat our Italian Caffe as a home from home. A place they come to relax in a busy but unobtrusive atmosphere, a real caffe society. But we can only say so much. It's our customers who make our enoteca restaurant a success – a group of people as varied as our wine list. People who want to enjoy a good glass of wine, fine food and good company. That's what makes our enoteca.
