A Milan bistro in Glasgow

Food is consistently great, good portion sizes and cooked to perfection. Desserts are lovely, especially the shortcake sundae. Waiters are friendly and helpful but the manager, Alan is amazing! Always there to help out if needed and so attentive and cares about his customers. Love this place.

Had a nice family meal there this evening. Really quaint, authentic place, busy for a midweek night and easy to see why. Food was great, service just right and atmosphere just right. Menu had a great choice and being a Wednesday had a special tapas menu - this was clearly popular as they were flying out the kitchen. Thanks for... More

My boyfriend and I visited Celino's one saturday for breakfast and loved it! He had visited before and said all good things about it and I wanted to try it for myself. He ordered the full breakfast which is great value for money, and I ordered the pancakes with fruit which were delicious! It is such a quaint little traditional... More

I had my sister's family up from England, so based on my past experiences I knew Celinos was the place to go when treating them for a meal...and I was right. Thanks to the headman-Alan- and the rest of the staff, for top notch food and service that contributed to making it a great night. Plus I was able to... More

Decided to eventually visit after reading all the superb views on tripadvisor. Had an average lunch which consisted of a bland portion of the "famous" lasagne. To say I was let down is an understatement as it was made up of soggy pasta and overpowering tomato paste? I really wanted to enjoy the experience but the restaurant is very cramped... More

Celino's did the catering for a party of 70 people for us recently in a bowling club. It was our first time using caterers and Claudio could not have been more helpful in making the experience as simple and smooth sailing as possible. I gave him a rough idea of what we were looking for and he created a fabulous... More

Was working in the east end of Glasgow when a friend recommend I stop here for some lunch. Authentic, delicious and so friendly- ended up taking away an entire bag for our evening meal that night from their attaches deli, full of antipasti, meats, breads and homemade desserts!
