A new look for Barolo

BAROLO, the Italian restaurant in Glasgow city centre, is to be transformed ahead of a grand reopening later this month.

The 150-cover eatery, which is owned by multiple operator The DRG, is being completely refurbished, with a new colour scheme of blue, rose and gold and new marble, brass and leather fixtures inside.

Currently known as Barolo Grill, the name will be refined to just ‘Barolo’ and specialise in what the company described as “classic Italian cooking alongside fine wines and signature cocktails”.

DRG director Tony Conetta said the revamped venue will specialise in “fresh pasta and classic Italian cookery but where understated Italian style gives a sense of occasion – whether you’re dropping in for breakfast, cocktails or a fresh pasta lunch”.

The updated menu will include dishes such as fresh buratta on sourdough with shaved black truffle and extra virgin olive oil; and charred sliced fillet of beef, pickled walnuts and horseradish cream.

The DRG’s other venues include Di Maggio’s, Café Andaluz, The Anchor Line and Amarone.
