“Great food, even better staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

This is a great wee place with freshly cooked food (no fast food here!). There is a great selection of dishes served tapas style, but note there is a wide variety rather than just Spanish dishes. The patatas arrugadas is well worth a try. However there is also a selection of mains including the wonderful brutti bread - a really thin based pizza. If you even remotely like pizza try one of these. The Zorba - with goats cheese - is to die for. The soups are almost invariably excellent and they also do a good breakfast.
The staff are not only efficient, helpful, courteous and smiling but have a funky stylishness that is in perfect keeping with the ambience of Brutti. Fridays and Saturdays can be really busy and the pace is almost frantic. Sunday evenings are usually a little quieter and you can hear the outstanding background soul music tape clearly.

“So glad I booked a table!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

I booked a table after checking on here for a restaurant. I'm so glad! The place was buzzing when we arrived. Staff were really friendly, food was fantastic! We had several small plates with a glass of cava. Turkish Delight Icecream and the Snowball dessert were both delicious! Will definitely go back next time I'm in Glasgow!

“exceptionally friendly place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My wife and I came in to shelter for the rain and stayed about two hours. We combined coffee and cake with a business meeting and were vastly impressed with the atmosphere and the amazingly friendly staff.

“Trendy, Friendly and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The food was excellent and the staff were all so friendly and attentive. Everyone seemed to be hipster ~ staff and customers. Made for a fun atmosphere. We had several of the small plates and one large plate (veggie burger). All were excellent.

Excellent choices for wine and beer ~ we went with the Pilsner Urquell and a nice glass of wine. If you're in Glasgow, definitely give the restaurant a try!
