A rainy day in Glasgow so me and my daughter bolted in to the nearest restaurant and got lucky as it was Cafe Antipasti. I'd actually been here before but many years ago. My daughter had Carbonara which was declared the best ever and I chose two fish dishes from their Small Plate section - smoked salmon and calamari, both... More

If ever a restaurant could rely on its head waiter to make sure customers will enjoy their visit and return again - this is it! Working between the open atrium end of the Cafe Antipasti and in the low ceiling beamed cosy back cafe this tall and energetic maestro made imperceptible that he had to duck to move quickly around...

Having been here before with my family on several occasions, we knew we were in for a good meal. The staff were able to make a dish to cater to my particular tastes which was lovely. We will definitely be coming back!

It was an ideal location for us before going to Kings Theatre. A very good 2 or 3 course pre theatre menu is available for around 11 or 12 quid. Four of us had a variety of dishes including seafood, pastas, and vegetarian. The portions were generous and all agreed the food was very good. The service was efficient rather... More

After a dreadful first visit to this restaurant (unhelpful, rude greeter), the manager dealt with my complain admirably and we decided to visit again. Our second trip was great from start to finish - attentive service and enjoyable food. Will definitely return for more.

I was a little disappointed- perhaps I expect too much from Italian Restaurants in the U.K. The minestrone soup was disappointing - simply because this is a dish which should sing Italian! It didn't. The seafood spaghetti was better. But overall it was a bit generic.
