“Italian Tapas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

First time for us and we enjoyed the experience - good customer service despite it being busy and
we enjoyed trying some new dishes. Would visit again although do try and use a non chain whenever possible but Glasgow was very busy when we were trying to find somewhere to eat before an event

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

I would like to share my lovely experience of this busy city center restaurant. It does small tapas style italian food and the service and quality of the dishes is one of the best you will find in glasgow. The prices for such quality can not be matched by longer more established italian restaurants. If you have not been to this restaurant i would recommend you go asap.

“very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

Visited here with friends. My first time having tapas. I like the variety of having several small dishes. Portion sizes generous. Food was very tasty, service good and a nice atmosphere. Would recommend giving it a try.

“Don't come here if you enjoy Italian Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

What a huge mistake this was. A chain of lowest common demoninator restaurants and I should, really should, have known better. Good service by nice staff doing their best with poor and inauthentic cuisine. If you like this sort of restaurant chain experience, then there are seven others in the North of England to enjoy too. We drank a glass each of our bottle of red wine over our starting "tapas" - mixed meats which might as well have come straight out of a packet from the nearby Tesco Express, were told we couldn't take the bottle out with us when we decided to give up on the meal -"company policy" - and so polished it off before going to eat somewhere else. Tipped the waitress - it wasn't her fault. I can't believe that anyone thinks this restaurant is excellent or good. No accounting for taste. Try Laterna instead. 100% better.

“Customer service atrocious”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

Myself & two friends visited at 9.pm on a Saturday evening. It was quiet and the Assistant Manager wouldn’t give us a table. (We think because he wanted to close early). I complained to HO and was advised to phone another Manager after leaving three messages I eventually made contact on fourth. The Manager I spoke to said he couldn't understand why we were refused table as we obviously ‘came from good stock -’ appalling how you can be classed over the phone!! (Did he think he was talking to an Oxo cube).I am still awaiting call back with explanation five weeks later. This place obviously wishes to be particular with clientele for now; however that won't last in Glasgow if restaurants can’t deliver good customer service. P.S. We went to Rogano for a delicious 4 course meal and fantastic service.
