La Fiorentina Ristorante (Glasgow) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I visited not that long ago but that visit was to be a judge, I spoke to the guys here and said I would be back and I always keep my word.

Today I was at Falkirk doing a charity event, and I felt like pizza so I decided to pop back and visit.

The Food

FOCACCIA AL ROSMARINO (v) £5.50
Baked focaccia bread with sea salt, rosemary and extra virgin olive oil.

I remember trying this on my last visit here and had to have it again.

WOW, this time it was a massive portion! it’s probably a good sharing one or if you are a very hungry person.

I took a bite and mmm great texture, and a perfect balance of salt and rosemary mmm so good!

I loved every bite!

4 Formaggi £13.50
White piazza topped with buffalo mozzarella, cheddar, gorgonzola and parmesan cheese

When I visited Italy I always had a few of these and loved them, so when I spotted they did them here I had to go for this and see how it was here.

On arrival, this looked and smelled amazing and I couldn’t wait to dig right in.

Ohhh this was soo good! the base was nice and thin and the flavours of all the cheese mmm it took me right back to being in Italy.

I finished this and loved it and will be getting it again on my next visit.

Visit Overall

Tonight’s visit was really good, the service and the food were just the same as before.

My favourite was the pizza as it took me right back to sitting in Italy watching the people walk by while I enjoy the pizza.

I will be adding here to my Top Restaurants page, soo do check them out.

Joia Italian (West End, Glasgow) 2021: Review

The Visit

I recently visited a lot of Italian restaurants, and had really great meals and said I would be back…I always keep my word and today I was in the West End and decided to visit one of them.

The Food

I really enjoyed what I got at my last visit, I had to order it again.

Starter

Olive Ascolane £5.95
Deep Fried Stuffed Olives / Truffle Mayo / Pulled Beef & Pork

On my first visit here which was also my last, I had these and instantly loved them.

The slight crunch then the burst of flavour followed by the slight olive after taste it was perfect and extremely moreish!

So I had it again at tonight’s visit.

Tonight it was exactly as my first time, and highly recommended.

Rigatoni Carbonara £11.95
Rigatoni Pasta/Black Pepper/Egg Yolk/Pecorino/ Guanciale

This was anther dish I had last time, and loved it so much I had to try it again tonight.

This was exactly as I remembered, the pasta perfectly cooked, and the guanciale just melted in my mouth and added massive amounts of flavour.

This is now one of my favourite pasta dishes.

Pannacotta £6.95
Bone-Marrow / Saffron / Red Wine Caramel / Cherries

I said to the guys here last time that on my next visit I would try this….and I kept my word

I have never tasted bone-marrow before so I didn’t really know how this would taste but its always fun to try something new.

hmm ok so it was a nice taste but different…I think its one you either will love or just think is so so.

Would I have it again? hmm maybe but I will try some of their other dishes next time.

Overall :

As I said I had visited a few Italian restaurants recently and all had great food so I thought I would pop back to them all and share their great food with you.

Tonight’s visit was very nice, the staff very friendly and the food was amazing.

Little Italy (West End, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

V: 22nd October 2021


Tonight I was meeting a friend for dinner here, and we both felt like pizza, and we both knew what we wanted so it was going to be an easy order.

The Dinner

10″ Pepperoni Pizza £8.95

I tried the pizza slice of this ages ago, but never the full pizza so I was looking forward to trying it.

I do like a good Pepperoni pizza, and a nice thin base but did they do that here?

This was perfect, the base was lovely and thin, and the topping was very tasty.

I enjoyed every bite!

Visit Overall :

Tonight was a really nice meal, and catchup and looking around everyone around us was having a fun and enjoyable night.

Ciao
