While staying in Glasgow recently we did some research onTripadvisor to identify places to dine. We decided on Don Costanzo, a family run Italian restaurant which had good reviews. The restaurant is located in a basement and has a pleasant ambiance.
The starters and mains comprised traditional pasta, meat and fish dishes. This is not a destination for pizza lovers. The quality of the food was in the main Ok with good quality ingredients but I would not rate it as highly as many of the other reviewers. My partner found that her starter was smothered in a vinaigrette sauce. I must also agree with other reviewers who pointed out that the specials for the day were not priced so we had to ask the waitress to provide prices for the starters which we considered to be on the high side.
The service was very good and attentive. The staff take care to top up your wine glass, personally I prefer to do this myself and had to ask the waiter to stop. The only aspect of our dining experience which caused some dismay was the behaviour of the boss who takes time to interact with customers. We got the impression that he tends to ingratiate himself with regulars and has less time for those who may be passing through which can irritate.
