Take a bite out of city business

Glasgow restaurant in ‘enviable trading location’ on the market

An established Italian eatery in the heart of Glasgow’s Merchant City has come onto the market.

Qua Italian Restaurant, on the corner of Ingram Street and Albion Street, is for sale to allow the retirement of the current owner.


The ground floor level of the outlet has a capacity to seat 100, while two separate mezzanine levels can cater for a further 60 covers.

There’s also a bar area and commercial kitchens over two levels.

Property firm Bruce & Co, which is marketing the leasehold of the property, described Glasgow’s Merchant City as “one of the most enviable trading locations in Scotland” and claimed the restaurant is in “walk-in condition” after being well maintained by its current owner.

The turnover of the business is said to be in the region of £16,000 a week.

“The sale of Qua Italian Restaurant offers a fantastic opportunity for a new buyer to acquire a lucrative and highly popular business, who can take advantage of its established reputation, yet still have genuine scope to grow the business,” said a statement from the company.

Bruce & Co is marketing the leasehold of the property for £425,000.
