We specifically asked for a window seat as there were 2 free but we were told “No” because there was only 2 of us and the window seats were kept for groups of 4 people, the booths were also taken so instead we were sandwiched between 2 other couples on the floor. Minus point #1.
The menu had changed since our last visit. For starters we shared the Antipasto (£7.95). It was ok, but to be honest the Antipasti we sampled in Bella Fresca,
see http://foodanddrinkglasgow.wordpress.com/bella-fresca-2093-paisley-road-west-cardonald-glasgow/ was far cheaper, larger and tastier. Minus point #2
For mains we went for the tried and tested Spaghetti carbonara (£8.50) and five cheese agnolotti (£8.95). Both dishes tasted fine, though for the price a few more agnolotti slices would’ve helped. Minus point #3. These were washed down with a white wine from the Orvieto region.
For desert, 3 scoops of Lemon sorbet with limoncello (£5.95), to be honest though, the lemon sorbet from Soave’s is (a) nicer and (b) cheaper. Italian Poached Pears, poached in prosecco wine & cinnamon. Served with ice cream & honey (£5.95) No taste of prosecco, just tasted like syrupy sauce 🙁 Minus point #4 Grand total was over £50 and I was still hungry! Minus point #5
Overall, a disappointing visit to a place that has supplied good meals in the past. Oh, and as we left all 4 window tables were taken. Each one was occupied by only 2 persons. Minus point #6!!! Grr! I shan’t be back in a hurry!
