We've eaten here several times now and it has always been excellent with good service and delicious food. The homemade Italian sausage is very good, and the pastas delicious. Desserts are less impressive with only two homemade but they are the classics - Tiramisu and Panna Cotta - and they are very open about the others being manufactured. Very convenient... More

Located directly next door to the Holiday Inn Express Riverside, this restaurant is quite convenient and has an extensive menu and wine list. They have early bird specials before 7 PM. However, when we arrived before 7 PM, we were told that those specials were finished. We pressed the issue, stating it was still before 7. The waiter reluctantly brought... More

On a recent flying visit to Glasgow, we stayed in the city centre. Next door was a gem of a restaurant. After a long day driving we dropped into Al Dente, this was a great decision. The food and the service was excellent. Please do try this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

My mum and I visited this Italian restaurant for our joint birthdays as we were staying in the Holiday Inn next door. We arrived around 6pm so the restaurant was quiet and we were served by the attentive staff and propietor. We decided on the two course meal which very reasonably priced. I had the mussels and my mum had... More

Had a Meal at Al Dente last night, not sure of the cost as it was included in the package. However both the Meal & the Wine which we paid for was excellent. Good food, good wine, good company, what more can one require. We had Minestrone Soup for a starter, it wasn't out of a tin but was obviously... More

My husband and I visited during a trip to Glasgow having looked at reviews for places that deal well with food intolerances. We can seem rather difficult customers I am lactose intolerant and he is gluten intolerant! We rang in advance to check whether they'd be able to adapt things for us and were assured it wouldn't be an issue.... More

The food was excellent at this first class Italian restaurant next to the Holiday Inn Express in Stockwell Street, Glasgow Riverside. The Italian owners from Capri take great pride in the presentation of their dishes, and it was a pleasure to eat there. It deserves to be well placed in the list of Trip Advisor top restaurants in Glasgow.

I ate here with my husband, our daughter-in-law and grandchildren the last time we passed through Glasgow. This time I was on my own and tired after a long train journey from West Yorkshire. I popped in and asked for a pizza to take out to eat in my hotel room next door. The lovely owner remembered me and my... More
