Mocha was perfect, so was the lemon tart, so I had them again after demolishing the Special goat's cheese ciabatta. Owner and staff switching between speaking Italian and English is part of the charm here, despite a review suggesting otherwise. Mocha here is far superior...More

One queen Margaret Drive Glasgow and again with a deep Italian connection. We had soup, two ciabattas, coffee, tea and some cake. Just lovely being so fresh and flavoursome. It is difficult to leave without taking some carry out cakes. Well worth a visit.
