“Buonissimo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

Wah! Why are there only 2 reviews?!

Celino's is by far my favourite restaurant in Glasgow. It is so reasonable, the food is sooo good and the staff and friendly and welcoming. As someone who used to live in Italy, I know my Italian food (most Italian restaurants in Glasgow don't really seem to) - and so do these guys. The atmosphere reminds me so much of a wee trattoria in Bologna - they have Italian MTV on with big Eros Ramazotti or Tiziano Ferro playing in the background, actual proper espressos and limoncello and lovely wine.

We eat here once a month or so and have never had a bad meal. The deli is really good too!! The chicken liver pate is the best I've ever had.

Celino potentially not being in our lives is an actual deciding factor of where we are going to purchase a home, haha. (Not quite, but almost!).

You should go. Buon apetitto!

“Best Italian in Glasgow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Went to Celinos for the 1st time recently and the Pizza's have to be the best in Glasgow! Staff at the restaurant and deli section were fantastic. The Tiramisu is amazing. Great value for money. Will definitely return.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

Had lunch here the other day and it was brilliant. Prawn starter was the best I have ever had. Great offer for a set menu which had a good choice. The added bonus is it has a great delicatessen in store in which we could buy the wine we had just had with lunch.
