Described as a “modern cosmopolitan restaurant and bar” with “the essence of Italian glamour,” the 150-cover venue – which includes a private dining room for up to 35 guests and an outdoor pavement terrace – is inspired by the Italian region of Piedmont and has been redesigned to include marble, brass and leather finishes and new blue, rose and gold branding. The previously covered glazed cupola has also been exposed to brighten the interior.
The fresh food offering includes a new breakfast menu which is served from 9am, Italian tapas (cicchetti), on the bone steaks, pizza made with dough proved for 48 hours and fresh pasta. Wines from Italy’s northern regions and cocktails including aged negroni, pear or Aperol spritz and espresso martini are also available.
Tony Conetta, director at the DRG, said: “Barolo is one of Glasgow’s oldest and most reliable restaurants, newly transformed into a colourful, warm and inspiring restaurant to
be seen in. Our team at The DRG have always strived to make people feel at their most comfortable, with our genuine hospitality and desire to provide the best welcoming service.
“With a new look and interiors and a menu rich with fresh ingredients sourced directly from Italy and from the best local suppliers, Barolo will aim to serve our customers great food, wine and cocktails of Italy’s famous Piedmont region.”
Barolo on Mitchell Street is open seven days a week from 9am until 10pm.
