About Tinto - East Kilbride
Into is a little hidden gem in East Kilbride
The restaurant was really busy but service was excellent. Three tapas each, from the main menu, & a large glass of wine each. Food was really tasty & beautifully presented.
Had a brilliant lunch. I asked my friends to be bridesmaid & Josh from Tinto went out the way to help make it perfect.
