“nice surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

great lunch at Pesto and lovely staff, small tapas style dishes but this lets you try different dishes for the price of a main course in other restaurants, my wife and I had five between us and all were fantastic, cant wait to go back.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

We went to Glasgow for the football match "Scotland - Belgium" and came here by accident. At first we didn 't know it was an Italian tapabar. After our first dishes we looked at the prices and figured it out.
Food and concept are really good if you like Italian. It give you the possibility to try different courses. Prices are ok and qualtity of food is really excellent.

“Tapas the morning to you !”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

I visited this restaurant with a couple of friends and their wives. It was my first experience of "Italian tapas", basically small versions of Italian meals. We ordered 18 between the 6 of us. It was very reasonable at less than 4 pounds a dish, which were about the size of a large starter. There was a good selection to choose from and all were delicious It was really nice sampling most of the dishes. A new and rewarding experience that I would repeat again.
Staff were all young and very friendly and attentive without hovering at your shoulder. Restaurant was dimmed and moody though we did have our meal interrupted by an errant fire alarm.

“We keep coming back.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

We've been here many many times and each time we are never disappointed. Food, staff, atmosphere everything is just right. We love the tapas idea as we can all try a bit of someone else's. So many great dishes, the bruschetta, the salads, the chicken dishes they are all so good, sticking to two or three is very difficult. Pesto can be very proud of itself and the cleanliness of the restaurant and the toilets, always clean. A brilliant Italian in Glasgow that should definately be visited on more than one occasion.
