When a friend of mine once brought me into Osteria on John Street in Glasgow, I remember I was floored by the simplistic beauty of the Italian diner. This charming little eatery has two floors, and a lovely glass conservatory area illuminated by fairy lights.
They sell a variety of Italian dishes, including a beautiful range of gourmet pizza. I would make a booking for their pizza alone – from the different flavours and the thickness of the bread, it’s evident that a lot of craft goes into making their pizzas and that they prepare each meal with care and attention to detail.
Because of this, and because of the unique and fresh ingredients they include in their dishes, the food is a bit more on the expensive side.
It is a lovely treat for a night out, and the employees are incredibly polite and friendly. I once brought my at-the-time partner there, who also thoroughly enjoyed the food (being a pizza enthusiast) – although he was admittedly a little more excited than I was that they also do takeaway!
This said, the venue is so lovely, it is definitely worth booking a table with some friends for the evening. It is immediately adjacent to a bar named Katie’s bar.
