The food here was very good. Sharing anti-pasto plate for starter was very generous and really delicious. Main courses (steaks, pizza, sea bass) were also excellent. The service was perfect - friendly and helpful without being intrusive at all. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others.

Me and my family eat a cucina regularly and enjoy it very much! To start we had the garlic bread, bruschetta and mozerella sticks which were delicious! For our mains we had the carbonara which we have every time. Unfortunately my gran never enjoyed the carbonara as much as usual because she found it very rich. Myself and daughter also felt it was different although still enjoyed our meal. When It came to paying the bill we found out that they did not charge us for our deserts as my gran never enjoyed the meal. We were more than happy to pay for them however they insisted. It was an excellent night and we were very grateful for them not charging us! The staff are extremely friendly and food is excellent!!

First class Italian restaurant at Balooch, Loch Lomond: Cucina* Ristorante.The menu is composed in a perfect way and besides that, you choose your very own pizza. The lasagna is well prepared, and comes to you with very fresh salad.
The restaurant inside is high-classed designed in a perfect way and doesn't compare at all with the colours of the website!
The staff is very friendly. They asked twice if everything was ok. Well done, girls!

I wouldn't go over the top about this place as some people seem to have. It was ok.

We got rather small portions of pasta for the price and our bread and butter with olive oil dip came sans plates to eat it off.

I'm not expecting Pavarotti etc but it would be nice if there was more of an Italian feel to this restaurant. It lacks character.

Thank you for your comments. I'm sorry to hear on this occasion you seem to have recieved a smaller portion of pasta than is standard as our portion sizes are normally generous. It's a shame you did not enjoy the atmosphere and complimentary bread but hope this will not put you off visiting us again in future.
Thanks

I live near Balloch and I would choose this restaurant above any other local restaurants or even one's in Glasgow city centre. An absolute gem of a restaurant.

Staff are lovely and the food is fantastic. Definitely recommend a visit.
