evolution of Barbarossa

the evolution of Barbarossa

Our doors first opened in 2001, offering Glasgow’s southside a high quality dining experience. With an extensive wine selection and a contemporary Scottish-Italian kitchen, there was enough to ensure everybody’s palate was catered for. Throughout the years the kitchen evolved and the dining scene started to change.

In 2007, the original Barbarossa extended it’s offerings by opening a Wine Bar area. Set out as a casual dining area for guests to enjoy the Italian grill & spuntini kitchen, you are able to sample one of the massive choices of wine by the glass, enjoy an espresso or make use of the private wine room for that special occasion. We made use of the intimate sections of the building to create five floors of dining areas for our customers.

May 2013 saw more evolution of Barbarossa. Changing with public demand and peoples dining habits, the restaurant and wine bar menus were both amalgamated, giving guests “the best of both worlds”. Added to this was the vital ingredient of a new pizza section, overseen by a new pizza chef, Enzo, who arrived direct from the owner’s village in South of Italy to bring with him the authenticity of an original italian pizza.

The changes have been well received with our existing customers and bringing in new ones from all over the city and country.

Thank You from all at Barbarossa.
