It’s Official – Caprese Restaurant to Close Saturday 26th February 2011 Forever….

Well, I did say we would update you on when exactly we are closing our doors forever and today we are able to tell you that as of Saturday 26th February 2011, we will be no more.


It is good to know finally a date that we are closing but it has still come as a bit of a shock to realise that 103 days from now, we will be removing all of your photos, turning off the lights and pulling down the shutter for the last time, never to return.  It is so strange to think that we will not be there any longer. To think of our amazing little restaurant being flattened not long after we leave is heart wrenching.  It will be an extremely emotional day for all of us and those lucky enough to share our final day will witness a few tears with no doubt.  We have to go out with a bang though, we cannot let this occasion pass without making it a really special time for all of us!


Just because we are closing in February doesn’t mean our work is done though.  We have a big job ahead of us to get the new restaurant ready for opening.  We will be having a well-earned break to catch our breaths and work will then begin to transform Costanzo’s new restaurant in Woodside Crescent near Charing Cross.  No date as yet for opening but I will be updating the blog regularly with sneaky peek photos and news on the new restaurant. For those of you who are not regularly in Glasgow, I would urge you to subscribe to the blog to be updated on the latest news on when we are opening.  Alternatively, you can send your email addresses to me via this blog and I will email you all when we know of a date.


That’s all for now, off now to enjoy our only day off and devour some of Costanzo’s delicious cooking with perhaps a glass or two of vino to wash it down!  Have a lovely weekend everyone!

    Thanks so much for getting in touch. I’m not sure if I will be in Glasgow before your move, but I wish you so much luck with it all. Constanzo has always been an amazing host and I will never forget all the wonderful meals we had at Caprese over the years, especially with Philip.

    Thank you for getting back to me Sophie. Costanzo always speaks highly of you all and has many happy memories of the times you spent in The Caprese from your Citizen Theatre days. I have been in touch with Roberta and she is meeting with Philip and will let him know the news as we haven’t seen Philip for a while now. Take care and hope we see you soon, if not in the Caprese, then in the new place xx

  4. Very fond memories of Caprese – when possible, can you let me have opening date of Costanzo’s.

      Thanks for your message Marge. As soon as we have a date for opening I will post it on the blog, we are thinking around August will be the earliest date but we will know nearer the time. As long as you are subscribed to the blog then you will automatically receive updates to your email. Thanks again and hope to see you soon! Jo
