The title says it all ! Tapas style Italian lovely staff great atomsphere and the food is amazing..... You'll struggle to find better for the same price have been twice with two groups of people ... Not one person had anything to bad to say . What I will say is don't get carried away order two or three dishes.. And if you want more just ask !

This is a formula Italian restaurant that serves small dishes at around 4 GBP each. The venue is quite spacious and has lots of tables.

The quality-price ratio is quite good. We paid 40 GBP for 2 persons. Diner consisted of some garlic bread, 5 dishes to share, deserts and a drink each.

You can choose various type of dishes such as pastas, pizzas, meat dishes, salads.

Overall not bad and quite good considering this is a formula restaurant.

We came across Pesto a few weeks before visiting, had a look around, had a chat with head waiter and liked what we saw and booked for a few weeks later.
Nice spacious dining area, up and downstairs. Good atmosphere, nice crowd on a very busy night.
We had nice bottle of wine along with several small plates off each category.
Food was delicious, nicely presented. We were served by 2 or 3 nice young waiters / waitresses, very attentive.
A couple of friends have since visited and loved it.

Now I am a grazer...I like small portions of several different thins rather than a big plate of one thing so when I happened upon Pesto on a recent trip to Glasgow and realised I could combine tapas style dining with Italian food I thought it was too good to be true!

It did not disappoint! I had three dishes from the lunch menu - a bargain at £7.95. Fettucine carbonara had the right balance of pasta and sauce, the shrimp were cooked to the right texture and the Caesar salad again had the right ratio of dressing which was very tasty.

Pesto would be great for a family lunch or dinner with picky eater children as there's bound to be something they like on the menu. Also strikes me as a good place for a group of friends for dinner.

Service was fast and friendly and the house white was lovely and good value per glass. I hope to visit again next time I'm in Glasgow.

Thank you for your lovely review of Pesto in Glasgow and glad to hear you enjoyed our concept of authentic Italian 'piattini' that's great to share with friends and family. We look forward to seeing you again at the restaurant soon.

Lunch deal was great value, we took one meal from it and one from the main menu. Salad had some browned leaves but the dressing was good. Arancini was poorly executed and flavorless. Stuffed pepper, pizza and calamari were excellent. The prawns in parchment were excellent in flavor although the prawns were clearly not king prawns. Service was great. Building and atmosphere was great for a lunch time and we will likely return for an evening meal.
