“What a little gem of a place”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

This is somewhere we've passed every day walking up and down Byres Road, but only recently have they starting serving wines by the glass. From our first visit, we were made to feel very welcome by the proprietor, Susan. There is a great selection of fantastic Italian wines on tap and she is happy to tell you about them.
Luckily for us, there was a wine and cheese evening a couple of days after our first visit, and there were places left so we availed ourselves. And what a great experience it was! There were 3 whites and 3 reds, with a cheese perfectly paired with each of them, all followed by a liqueur and gelato. The Italian wine sommelier, Aldo, made the evening really enjoyable and fascinatingly interesting. He was really passionate about wine and very informative, but ensuring the evening was not a stuffy affair.
The selection of wines to buy is excellent and they really do have some very special Italian wines. Can't wait to go back and hopefully we shall be seeing more wine and cheese evenings!
