I was visiting Scotland and wanted to seek out a favourite restaurant that I had not visited for a number of years. Don Costanzo's, formerly Caprese Restaurant in Buchanan St Glasgow, has re-located to Woodside Crescent and has been re-named Don Costanzo's in recognition of its inimitable and rambunctious owner and host.
To eat here is about more than just food, it is a total enjoyable experience. Costanzo is a superb host and with his daughter Ilia provides excellent and 'entertaining' service.
The food is European but specialising in Italian dishes. Try the mouthwatering veal T-bone and the fish is always fresh, superbly cooked and presented with style.
I was delighted to discover that Don Costanzo's is back in a great new location and offers a wonderful taste of Italy in the heart of Glasgow.
