This busy little bistro offers fresh, flavoursome Italian cuisine. The service is welcoming and responsive. A limited range of wines and beers, but judiciously selected for taste and value. Excellent coffees.

Hands down the worst experience of eating out I've ever had. I wouldn't normally review anything but the staff/manager were so rude that I felt inclined to do so. Please avoid!

Been here fairly regularly both before and after refurbishment and it's consistently good every time. The pizza & pasta is very traditional and really tasty. We just keep coming back !

We've been here a few times and it's always good. We had the specials and they were delicious. The staff were friendly and the prices are reasonable. They have decorated since we were last there so it looks clean.

I've been going to little italy for a good few years. And never had a bad experience. The pizzas are my favourite that side of Glasgow. Not to thin, not to thick just perfect and always does the trick. 16" is very reasonably priced also....More

I love this place, but it’s not as good as it used to be. The recent upgrade has changed the atmosphere, and it feels as though it’s lost its identity. It’s still a takeaway but also a restaurant, but the lines are a bit blurred....More
