We have been several times to Celino's which is easy to find on Alexandra Parade, Dennistoun, Glasgow. The staff are always very welcoming and friendly and the choice of menus and food is good. The pre-theatre is especially good value. The delicatessen is a feast for your eyes. We have booked again for the early evening before we walk from... More

As a local resident, I have visited this place 4-5 times; usually because I am lazy to cook. I have taken away a Pizza, Calzone, Garlic bread and Panini on separate occasions. The Garlic bread is two big slices of toast smeared with garlic spread. No more, no less. Nothing italian about it. The Pizza and Calzone bread was doughy... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants in Glasgow and we try to go at least every two weeks. The menu is changed slightly with some regularity so we regulars don't have to order the same all the time. Having said that, there are some dishes that I wouldn't mind having over and over. I was hooked as soon as... More

I decided to treat my boyfriend to a meal to cheer him up after failing his driving test. After looking at menus and reviews, we decided to give Celino's a try. It is very local for me, only 5 minutes away in the car and I must say, I have wasted 19 years by never visiting! We made a reservation,... More
