QUA Italian Restaurant
Ingram Street, Merchant City, Glasgow
Welcome to all visitors from our staff at our top-rated restaurant

We are not a multi-national company nor a chain restaurant and do not pretend to be affiliated to nor adopt the
name of a celebrity chef. Instead, our modest aim is to have a busy and bustling restaurant packed with happy satisfied
customers who have been served tasty freshly prepared food by our hardworking staff.

We are, always have been and hopefully always will be a family-run restaurant.
Our head chef, Angelo, hails from Palermo on the Island of Sicily and and our head waitress, Francesca, has been living in
Glasgow for the past 11+ years after moving here from Sorrento. Both have worked with us for well over 16 years combined
and because of such our menu and atmosphere contains an unrivalled and inspired Southern Italian feel. We are
the Merchant City's only truly authentic Italian restaurant with Sicilian and Pugliese kitchen staff, a Sorrentine
head waitress and a Molisan proprietor.
Large parties are regularly catered for and special set menus
are available on request to suit all dining requirements. If you are one of the guests who shall be dining
with us as part of one of our great many large group bookings in the coming weeks then we are looking
forward to welcoming you to our beautiful, comfortable and modern restaurant.
Excellent location only
minutes from George Square, the Gallery of Modern Art, the Tron Theatre, the Ramshorn Theatre, the Old Fruitmarket and City
