The Kitchen is calling – but you don’t have to cook

Don’t think that Mother Nature got the first day of spring memo this week.  It’s cold – too cold for cooking in my own kitchen.  And so we head to another.

The Italian Kitchen’s welcoming space is just what we need.  It instantly warms the soul and treats our senses to the most delicious of smells and lovely looking food.  And there’s choice galore.

We start with their mozzarella, basil and tomato salad perfectly complimented by freshly baked focaccia.  It just may be the best in town, sprinkled with fresh rosemary and infused with flavour,  it literally melts in the mouth.

Italian kitchen's mushroom Tagliatelle If you can manage to resist the impressive and appetising selection of pizza, their creamy dreamy tagliatelle with pan-fried mushrooms in garlic, sage and parmesan is absolutely amazing.

Happily stuffed, we give dessert a miss but  cappuccino and a baileys coffee is the perfect end to a spectacular meal.

But what’s good food without exceptional service?  Nothing.  But that’s not a concern here.  Our lovely server is attentive, knowledgeable and totally accommodating.  Our glasses are always full and our food is absolutely perfect.

Looking around the packed restaurant, it’s clear we’re not the only ones that know about this culinary gem.  So do make a reservation to avoid disappointment.

While I’m hopeful that spring will make an appearance in Glasgow soon – having comforting scrumptious food helps to brighten the dark cold days.
