Have been here a few times now since moving to south side of the city. Lovely wee cafe. Have tried many of their dishes now but have to recommend their Sunday roast. Beautifully cooked beef, juicy and tender. Food has always been delicious. Staff are very attentive. Has always been busy when I've been in, surely a good sign. Very good prices too. Last time I was here I took my parents who were delighted with the food. The staff had advised they were now opening at night at the weekend which I will certainly be trying out. Couldnt recommend it more. One of Glasgow's hidden gems.

Passed by here so many times and never bothered goin in for lunch before, decided to pop in with the girlfiend and i can only say ive been missing out for so long.

An authentic wee italian cafe, reminds me of when i've been in milan and venice.

Opted for the Italian Sausage Stew, what a dish was great, and the girlfriend had no complaints about the minestrone either , both then had toasted Panini and Ciabatta, I would recomend the Milanese.

All in all a cracking wee cafe that also does fantastic coffee, great staff, and even the TV is in italian, giving it that bit more of an authentic feel.

Theres also a Deli selling fresh meats / cheese and other italian products

I totally agree with the other top ratings. I have enjoyed their great pasta, meats, & nice wines - the house red is recommended. They are now open Thursday, Friday, & Saturday evenings with last orders for the kitchen taken at 8.45pm. the only drawback for me was the music was a a bit loud but that's an age thing! I must try their breakfast sometime.

Located on the busy Paisley Road West, Bella Fresca is a great little lunchtime spot for locals (and passers-by) in the Cardonald area. Not open for dinner.

Certainly not a quiet option, Bella Fresca is always busy, and offers a bustling Italian cafe atmosphere for shoppers on the PRW. Pavement seating is available for those looking for the al fresco dining experience (if you can tolerate the smoke drifting by from neighbouring tables).

The cafe also operates as an Italian Deli, with a variety of genuine Italian fayre on sale.

Went here two weekend ago with a friend for lunch. I decided to try the spaghetti arrabiata this time which was lovely. The service, atmosphere and quality of food is always spot on - I'll be back again soon!
