We love this place. I'm tempted to write a bad review - so it doesn't get too busy ;-) It just feels like such an authentic Italian Café / restaurant - even with the Italian TV's on in the corner. Yes you can get most of the standard Italian fair - but there are several things on the menu that... More

This southside deli cum restaurant is a bit of a find in an area not normally known for great food options (although this is slowly changing). The pizza was excellent with a proper made from scratch base and the Italian bean stew was pretty authentic. There were a couple of things that prevented a higher rating. One was not being... More

Have been a couple of times and always thought the bill was a bit stiff for a local restaurant. So breakfast couldn't break the bank...could it? Fifteen quid for a couple of coffees,a tea, scrambled eggs and French Toast with bacon.... Eggs were average, French toast ok, but adding 2 rashers of bacon at 90p each was a bit hard... More

The cousins Luca & Toni have worked hard to make this the go to Italian cafe / restaurant in the southside of Glasgow. Menu has got more and more extensive without losing quality, now are doing evening meals.....worth checking it out if you are in the southside. Check opening times

Wow, I love Italian food, and this will be my new 'go to' place for Italian food in Glasgow from now on. It's been right under my nose-I live about two miles away, but I've passed it by- no longer! I could have been in a Tuscan local restaurant. Monday lunchtime, bustling atmosphere,marvellous- and cheap- home style Italian cooking, and... More

Visited for the first time with family, food was good. Starter to share the Antipasto bread came first with a couple of minutes delay for the rest of the starter. Place was busy but expect the starter to share all to come at the same time. We all enjoyed our main courses. The tables are tightly packed together with not... More

Felt very unimportant stuck away from restaurant area!!! Waitress was happy to find us a new table, service friendly, food fabulous! Would return, with a decent table!! When leaving felt very very sorry for the couple sitting at the bright excluded table :-( Think that table should have a discount attached to it!!

Super wee cafe with a super choice of menus, maybe too much to choose from but all the same great offerings without the glitz and glamour of some of the more expensive Italians . Very good food indeed.

Been coming to bella Fresca for years now, and even if just popping in for a coffee , or out for lunch, the service and quality of food is outstanding. Always busy, so best to book a table .

This is my favourite Italian in Glasgow. The food is traditional and of a quality standard. Even the take out deli section is lovely.
