Set in the iconic Cathedral House near Glasgow's bustling city centre, Celentano's is a relaxed Italian-inspired eatery. Husband and wife team Dean and Anna cook up snacks, bread, pasta, fish, meat, and veg as simple yet exciting sharing plates. There is a short selection of wines and cocktails for good measure. A versatile place, Cenlentano's can be a quick stop for a Negroni or a long evening of food and conversation. 

The menus are organised in the traditional Italian structure, with sections of snacks, antipasti, pasta, mains, sides and desserts. Snacks include fun creations like a smoked cod doughnut with kimchi, fried lasagne, preserved fennel with salsa verde or pork and fennel salumi. The starters here continue to show off fun takes on Italian food with the likes of charred leeks with stracciatella, rocket and fried breadcrumbs. The pasta at Celentano's is not to be missed, with entries like octopus linguine with black chilli and kombu butter. The secondi typically include large, hearty dishes like whole sole on the bone or slow-cooked glazed short rib. Affogato is the signature dessert here, made with Caravan coffee and malted barley.

Groups can enjoy the set feasting menu, which includes highlights from the main menu reimagined for sharing. Kick off with a seaweed cracker topped with pickled squash alongside house sourdough with Le Ferre olive oil, before moving to bone marrow agnolotti with wild mushrooms and Lanark white. Then, choose from dayboat turbot on the bone, slow-cooked glazed Dexter beef or short rib on the bone. Sides include cavolo nero with miso butter or beef fat potato strati. Dessert might then be a rye choux bun with yoghurt sorbet and Yorkshire rhubarb or Errington cheese with a seeded oat cracker and honey. 

Cocktails at Celentano's include classics like Espresso martinis alongside more unusual creations like house Kombucha Sours.
