A busy place is always a sign of good food and this is no exception. Italian food with a Scottish twist served by attentive staff and at a price to please this Scotsman. Only downside in my opinion is that there are too many tables...More

This again is an excellent no frills Italian restaurant who serve the best minestrone soup. The mussels cod and chorizo are also lovely. The chicken with haggis and lamb ravine are more of my favourites.

A charming restaurant in a period building, formerly the place the Glasgow tram drivers had their rest breaks. Even if the menu were to be run of the mill (which it is most definitely not) the location itself would be worth the price of lunch...More

This is a nice venue for lunch or dinner. It's got an old fashioned Italian cafe feel to it, although it was once the bus terminus! It has been decorated nicely inside. I think it is a family business and there's a family friendly warm...More
