I booked a table here for my wife and I after reading about the accolades this restaurant has won over the past few years and opted for the winter deal which includes a glass of Prosecco upon arrival, three courses with a bottle of wine and coffee, all for £55. The restaurant itself is downstairs below Hope Street and feels... More

Very good food from the restaurant which won awards in 2013 for Italian food. A bit posh - no pizza for example - but not pretentious with it. Expect to spend about £25-£30 per head.

Our hotel recommended this place. It was just around the corner from Central Station. I had the pre-theatre 2 course dinner deal with calamari and spaghetti carbonara. Heaven!

Felt compelled to write a short review as I have now lost count how many times I have eaten here on Business with clients. My favourite restaurant I'm Glasgow without question. Always excellent quality food, perfectly cooked, interesting specials, nice ambiance and a good wine selection. I can't say it's inexpensive but you can eat well for not too much.... More

Visited with my family for my sister's 20th birthday and can honestly say this was the nicest Italian experience I've had in Glasgow. Food was spectacular, beautifully presented and incredible taste. Whilst it was quite expensive we weren't overly bothered by the price as the food was so good it felt worth it. The staff were attentive and helpful and... More

An extremely good experience! The best pasta I've had since a specific black pasta dish I ate in Milano Mestre in May 2001! I tried the “Spaghetti all`Arragosta con Gamberoni” - Spaghetti with lobster tail, king prawns, cream, white wine & garlic, mmmm… . My colleagues had different courses and their food also looked delicious, and they were all pleased.... More
