We recently visited with a small party for a birthday celebration. The welcome was friendly and we enjoyed having a drink in the bar before being shown to our table. We all had pasta, which was well cooked and very tasty. We look forward to returning.

Over-worked staff, under-serviced customers. Uncomfortable atmosphere. Food unremarkable. There are other Italian eating places that would be worth giving prior consideration to in Penarth.

Recently visited the restaurant whilst on a weekend away in Cardiff. The main reason for going was it was the restaurant used in the Gavin and Stacey series. I booked a table a couple of months in advance. We arrived 30 minutes before our booked time and had drinks in the bar area. Our orders were taken in this area and a specials list of 6 starters and 6 main meal were also available.
The service was very good at what was a busy time with nearly all tables full. The staff were polite and attentive to anything we required. Food wise we ordered a variety of starters Bruschetta Fiorentina, Bruschetta Gallese, Fungi Villa Napoli and spare ribs. As a party of four these were more than adequate and all very tasty. One thing i would say is we would have been better ordering maybe 2 or 3 between 4 as the main meals are of decent size.
Main meal wise we ordered The four cheese pizza with salami, surf and turf steak, grilled sirloin steak with peppers,onions and chilli's which was superb, and pasta with salami. The steaks came with a bowl of veg which consisted of roast potato,cauliflower,broad beans and carrots. None of our party had a problem with the food which was enjoyed. I particularly enjoyed the steak with chilli and peppers. The food was plentifull and not all plates were cleared.
Desert and only 2 people ordered and there was a substantial list, they opted for death by chocolate and cheesecake which ended up being shared between 4.
All in all a very enjoyable meal. I would go back if ever in the area!!!!

We've eaten here a few times, and the food can be of a good standard. It's not the best in the area (Da Genaro in Barry is better), but it's pretty good. We have found the staff to be a bit rude on occasion!

I had a meal yesterday at the Glendale and it was fantastic, the food was delicious as always and the staff was helpful and friendly. I've been going to the Glendale for many years and I have to say, the quality of the food and service is always excellent. We had a small problem with a starter but we spoke to the manager who was very helpful and the problem was resolved within minutes. Tony and his sons run this business and they look after their customers very well.
I just read the review below and I am quite shocked, Dave, you should have spoken to Tony's son, im sure he would have done something for you. Maybe next time.
I will always enjoy a meal at the Glendale
