evolution of Barbarossa

the evolution of Barbarossa

Barbarossa Restaurant first opened the doors in 2001 when proprietors Enzo and Elizabeth Longo turned their passion for high quality food, wine and dining experience into their own reality: a fine dining restaurant in the Southside of Glasgow.

With an extensive wine selection and a contemporary Italian-Scottish kitchen, Barbarossa had an exciting menu that saw people travel from all over Scotland to sample.

Throughout the years, with changing trends, the kitchen evolved as did what Enzo and Elizabeth wanted from their business.

2007 saw an extension to the original Barbarossa, with a classic Italian wine bar opening in another part of the building as well as a more casual dining area, offering Italian grill and spuntini kitchen.  Making great use of each of the five floors, the team now had a variety of intimate yet relaxed areas for you to enjoy a drink, a coffee or a meal with family and friends

Owner Enzo, who is from the South of Italy and as such, got itchy feet and followed a dream to serve traditional pizza in the Southside of Glasgow, put a pizza oven in the kitchen and brought a pizza chef over from his village in Italy to create an authentic, Italian experience in a little corner of Cathcart.

As the hospitality industry evolves, so does Barbarossa, however, consistently taking a pride in service, food and layout, Enzo and Elizabeth keep bringing quality to the Southside of Glasgow.

Thank you from all at Barbarossa
