Incredible value, lovely food and great service
Had the 3 course lunch menu for family of four. Fabulous value at £7.90 each. We had bruschette, calamari and deep fried mushrooms as starters, arrived very quickly and tasted great. Mains of spaghetti azzurro, chicken breasts in mushroom sauce, pizza and penne arrabiatta were lovely. Perfectly cooked. Desserts were Victoria sponge, carrot cake, profiteroles and ice cream, every one really tasty. Coffee included in the price. Possibly the best value lunch I've ever had. We booked but it wasn't busy on Saturday lunchtime, only 2 minutes from Sauchiehall Street. Will definitely go again, dinner menu only £5 more. Shame I can only give 5 stars for value.
Great food at great price
We had come with friends and had a lovely meal. Staff were friendly and attentive
