As a couple, and an extended family,we are regular visitors for both drinks and food. The atmosphere,/ambience is great, always lively and friendly. It is the ideal setting for a glass of wine with friends, a great Italian meal, or a family celebration. On many occasions there are celebrations of christenings, birthdays, anniversaries etc and staff go the extra mile to ensure that a great time is had by all. There is something to appeal to all ages - live bands at weekends, great outdoor space to enjoy the sunny weather (!) and a warm welcome extended to all. The number of regular customers is testament to the popularity of this establishment.

This is a very popular place to eat and after your first meal here you will know why. The food is great with fast, friendly service and a good range of wines and beers. The restaurant is family friendly and is always lively at any time of the week.
If you go at the weekend there is live music in the bar area and a small dance floor, so no need to go anywhere else for entertainment after dinner.

I've meant to write a review of this "Bearsden favourite" for a few years now. This is one of the very best bistro's in the west and also one of the most popular as well. With great service, friendly attentive staff, great Italian food and drink, and a brilliant atmosphere for family and friends to get together, what more could you want?? Kids are made more than welcome and can wander about within the safety of the bottom lounge and beer garden area whilst mums and dads (grans and grandpas) have a bite to eat or a drink. Sensibly, Dino has chosen NOT to have football blasting out of televisions all around the place, so it's a relaxed family feel as opposed to the tension often felt in other places when football's on the box! Visited on many occasions and love it!!

Have eaten here a few times. Family friendly and lively. Food is good, if a little too pricey although portions are large. There is live music at weekends in the bar area and this makes for an interesting night out. Mainly regular customers.

A really popular place to eat and the reasons are obvious. If you enjoy freshly cooked food, lively atmosphere in a restaurant that welcomes all ages then this is the place to go. The owners are always on hand to give you some personal attention. Their pizza and pasta dishes are outstanding. Want to omit or add extra ingredients? No problem. Just ask. Excellent non pasta/pizza dishes too. There is also a bar area and live music at the weekends. All round fun place.

Happy loyal customer .
