Went here with my 3 daughters for a Saturday Lunch using "It Is On" vouchers. Really expected a mediocre small portioned affair, but to our surprise the food was delivered in what was a superb portion in what one would expect from the 'Normal Menu'...the food was absolutely lovely and we all admitted the best Italian we have had in...

Came here with a discount scheme through 5pm.com. Food was OK, but nothing particularly special. The starter I had - Bruschetta Pomodoro (basically garlic bread and a few marinated tomatoes) was overpriced at almost 6 quid - and the lasagna had been overcooked around the edges. The fresh orange was lovely though I have to say. Also, the service was... More

Stopped here later on last night for a solo meal whilst on business in Glasgow. The welcome and service was excellent and the food (from an extensive menu) was genuine rustic Italian. Very impressed.

Four of us visited this restaurant on our trip to Glasgow a few weeks ago. We all had 2 courses plus wine. The food was AMAZING and there was a good array of vegetarian options for myself. Staff were friendly, restaurant interior is lovely and the location is nice and central. Huge portions and reasonably priced! Would definitely return :)

18 of us had a cocktail masterclass on Saturday afternoon followed by a 2 course lunch. I have to say from start to finish we all had an amazing time. The cocktails were lovely and we had fun making them. The meal afterwards was also really nice. I would really recommend this to anyone else looking for a cocktail class.... More

Ate here as part of an 'it is on' deal in Glasgow. Ordered a starter to share and a pizza and pasta also to share. the restaurant was busy on an early evening because of the deal on offer, which helped give a nice atmosphere! Food was very tasty and the staff very nice and friendly. Only negative was that... More
