“Miserable Friday night . .”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Got back in Glasgow Thursday night, got settled in my new flat so all cosy in kevinbridges, pop out in the old neighbourhood and decide to try Gambrini's . . sounds like an alco-pop and the decor is about as new in concept . . miserable greeting, grumpy minimal service, luke warn main dinner, shockingly high price vs quality and the final insult over coffee watching a couple who were 'regulars' breeze in to smiles, something on the house to drink, anything we can do . . well you could stop the pretence of serving the public and admit that you are a cheap tavern for your friends, at least the rain lifted my spirits on the walk home !

“Great, freshly cooked, delicious meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Came here on Saturday for lunch and had the 2 courses for £12.95 (I think) menu and it was delicious. Large variety to choose from and not one of us out of the 7 had a complaint. We all finished with empty plates. The pizzas were freshly cooked and delicious and the pasta dishes also looked amazing. We will definitely be back to eat at Gambrinos.

“Great”

Food service music good the rest of this review is rambling drivel because trip advisor insists. Enough said - apparently not

“Tasty, serene, Italian!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Had a lovely time here, the food is super fast but freshly cooked, I had clam pasta and Italian flatbread with a nice strong Peroni. Came out in as much time as it would take to cook from scratch. Super clean simple flavours cooked perfectly. Had ice cream with shot of espresso for dessert and left as a rather full, but exceptionally happy bloke.
Oh. Staff were really nice, smiley and there when you needed them.

“The best Italian food in Glasgow!”

It was packed when we ate here but the food arrived quite quickly and it was amazing! The atmosphere and service were fantastic too, and they played nice Chrismassy music!
