Doppio Malto Italian Restaurant (Glasgow) 2021 : Review


Visited 12/08/2021 (Invited)

The Event

The guys at Doppio Malto asked if I would like to come to their pre opening event for a fun filled night, I love finding new restaurants so I said yes.

Doppio Malto is at the former home of Jamie Oliver’s Italian, which is located on George Square. Its super easy to get to, as its in short walking distance to Glasgow Queen Street railway station, Glasgow Central railway station and Buchanan bus station.

Doppio Malto is popular and well known in Europe, and they have chosen Glasgow for their first venue.

Doppio Malto will welcome its first customers on Friday, August 13. I had a look at the menu and its massive offering a wide range of BBQ meats, pizza, burgers, pasta and desserts…some with a little twist.

They also offer 15 different craft beers which are brewed on site, and you can see the kegs next to the bar.

I got my invitation sent through the post, and LOVED how cool this was! such a great idea.

So I was ready for my Doppio Malto adventure.

The Evening

On arrival we were seated in what I will call for tonight the “departure lounge” for some drinks and snacks.

Inside from what I saw was very nice, and I loved how you could see the kitchen and the beer kegs. The decoration and layout was very good.

The snacks were honestly very tasty, they all had a great crunch to them and very flavoursome.

We got our boarding call to now go on a Glasgow Bus tour….how cool.

This was so random but really added to the fun, and we were very lucky we only had a very short burst of light rain but for the majority it was dry.

The Arrival

We arrived at our final destination the Doppio Malto.

The Inside

As I said earlier, it has been very nicely decorated. I loved everything about it as it felt very warm, cosy and homely…I was very relaxed.

I loved the umbrellas, it reminded me of a place in Italy called Noventa di Piave which is where I saw this idea for the first time. Its exactly as you would expect Italian décor, everything was perfectly placed and funky modern art work.

The Food

We were presented with this amazing platter, which had : Rooster, pork, Potatoes, dips, Steak and Italian sausages.

I started with the steak which was perfectly cooked, and not too chewy. Next was the pork…this was so so so so GOOD!!!!!

Everything was really tasty and cooked perfectly, but for me tonight’s winner was the pork.

Beer Tasting

Yes…and there was more…how cool was this event.

As I was driving I was more listening and watching, but my friend Chris participated in the tasting.

And ending the evening with dessert…

We got cannoli and Birramisù…yup you read that correct its not a typo.

I started with the Cannoli and WOW, these are the best I’ve ever had. The shell was a good texture and perfect crisp, and the cream inside was mega mega yum.

The Birramisu is just as you would expect, but rather than having a coffee flavour its more a subtle beer flavour. For me it was nice, but I did miss the coffee flavour.

Overall :

Firstly a massive thank you to Doppio Malto, this has been one of THE most fun events I’ve attended and one I definitely won’t forget.

I will be back soon to check out some of their other dishes so keep watching.

Guys check them out, and let me know what you thought and what you got.
