Best food Best Friendly in Glasgow

I Love this small friendly cafe/bistro. The staff are so friendly and welcoming and the food is always excellent - all freshly made. It has a buzz about the place, relaxed & very welcoming atmosphere and if you want to practice your Italian, then look no further.

North star is my second home, every recipe feels like it has been handed down through the generations to Mauritzo ( owner ) there are different specials every day ranging from carbonara to really special dishes using fish, chicken or red meat. The soup is always great & the cakes always hit the spot with they're awesome coffee. You will... More

What a find! Coming from an Italian family myself we are always an Italian restaurants worst nightmare, as it's always difficult to find authentic Italian cuisine unless you're actually in the country it's self. I stumbled across this restaurant while visiting a friend in the West End. I had the Pappardelle with wild mushrooms and blue cheese...it was amazing! I... More

Living nearby I have been into the North Star many times and can honestly say that each thing I have ordered has been among the best I have ever had. If I was to recommend anything I would say to go for one of the daily specials as they are always top notch and just a little bit different from... More

Visited The North Star for lunch, with my student daughter, having read another review describing it as "a gem of a place" and totally agree. The food was fabulous - I could have eaten everything on the menu but wanting to watch my waistline I went for a delicious goats cheese salad - freshly made and a great portion size.... More

I have been working locally for the last few months and have been meaning to review the North Star but have just kept coming in to get genuinely meant friendly service and sometimes breathtakingly good food. The standard menu is wide ranging and consistently excellent. However what really sets it apart is an ever changing list of specials which really... More
