3 adults and 2 children dined on lovely Italian food while being served by absolute gentlemen. Arrived at 8pm and didn't leave til nearly 10 as it was so pleasant a place to be. Really appreciated the extra attention paid to the children as well as the complimentary drinks for us at the end! Grazie!

Friday afternoon lunch, was very quiet so not much atmosphere but that was fine. I imagine it's quite lively when busy. I had bruschetta then carbonara, both tasted great and portion size just right. My boyfriend had calamari then chorizo pasta which he said were both lovely. I tried his pasta and the sauce was tasty. He thought the calamari... More

I visited on a Monday lunchtime for the 2 course lunch and couldn't fault it! Was so full after this that I didn't eat a dinner that night. Served by a lovely man named Ricardo. My only slight bugbear is that the house wine is rather pricey- £18 for a bottle of merlot is not competitive in the city centre-... More

This restaurant is far too small for the number of tables. You feel like you are dining with the people on the next table. Disappointed by the pre-theatre menu as there were far to many items on the menu that were supplements. Food was OK. Service rather rushed. Then they got the bill wrong, There are far better places to... More

This is the perfect place for a pre-theatre dinner. Very close to the King's so this seems to be their main trade. Good deal through 5pm.co.uk. Very fast service (a bit too rushed for us, but you certainly won't miss the start of your show), nice enough food, lovely cocktails. Very busy and cramped so not the place for a... More

Would not recommend as much better choices available for authentic italian food in Glasgow. Tables far too close to each other and food not up to much. Tasteless and my husbands pizza was similar to shop bought. Not impressed .

I have eaten here on many occasions as it is very close to the Kings Theatre. Never had a bad meal here. Service, Staff, food is excellent. The only downside is that it is rather small and there is no natural light however you forget about that when the food arrives. Lovely choice of music also which adds to the... More
