Little Italy (West End, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

V: 15th May 2021


Today I was meeting friends for lunch, and a nice catch up. I have always liked the atmosphere in Little Italy, and the food so I knew it was going to be a lovely afternoon.

Stuffed Mushrooms £4.50

I ordered this thinking “I am not sure if I have ordered this before” and guess what I did the last time I was in….old age I guess…

Just like the last time the mix of the cheese and the mushroom etc all worked perfectly and I loved every bit.

The garlic bread was also very tasty, and worked great with the dish.

Focaccia £7.50
pesto, goats cheese, sun blushed tomatoes, caramelised onions

After my last visit here and having the Focaccia I wanted to try another one, and I love pesto and goats cheese so this one was perfect for me.

Ohh this was very nice, the sun blushed tomatoes and the pesto all worked really well together.

This is another Focaccia from here that I would easily order again.

Just like my previous visits, I enjoyed my time and meal today.

The staff are always very friendly, the food is always very tasty and Little Italy will continue to be in my Top Spots page.

Check them out 🙂

And I finished the lunch with a lovely and must have cappuccino.

Oro Italian Restaurant (South Side, Glasgow): Review

V: 20th December 2020


I have wanted to visit Oro for a while now, but I have never really been in the area.

Today I was meeting friends for lunch, so I was looking forward to seeing Oro, the friends and trying the food.

Venue

On entering the restaurant is split into two areas the main area when you walk in, and the back area down the stairs….this is where I was seated today.

First impressions really nice visually, and had a nice relaxing and cosy feel.

Where I was seated unfortunately wasn’t too bright, so my photos don’t do the food justice.

The Food

I had no idea what to order, so I just opted for the first thing that caught my attention as everything sounded really nice.

Next time I will try a pizza.

Appetiser

Crab Cakes £7.95

On arrival this looked really nice, and I liked the presentation….now time to taste.

Wow I was very impressed! the flavour was really good and I liked the mixture of the sauces with it.

The red sauce you can see was a sweet chilli so it added a nice subtle kick but didn’t over power the rest of the flavours.

  • Flavour : 5
  • Value For Money : 4
  • Overall : 4.5

Main Course :

Chicken Risotto £13.95

WOW this was a big portion! and look at how it was presented….for me this is a first to see risotto presented like this.

This smelled nice, and my mouth started to water so time to dig in.

mmmm this was a good risotto, the flavour, and perfectly cooked. My only issue was I wish I didnt have a starter, as I was full 2/3 of the way through so I had to take the rest home with me.

If you visit and love risotto I recommend you try this.

Visit Overall :

I am going to add Oro to my top spots list.

Fratelli’s (Cambuslang, Glasgow) takeaway via FoodHub : Review

GIFTED


The guys over at FoodHub gifted me with a wee voucher to order a meal and again check out their app.

The app is just like your other takeaway ordering apps, see my other review here

I wanted to try another place I have not used for a while, so I opted for Italian tonight.

The Food

I have ordered a takeaway from here a good few years ago, and enjoyed it at that point and as I said I felt like an Italian tonight so thought would check them out again.

Drink

187ml Pinot Grigio White £3.25

I am not a big wine drinker, it is an area I would like to learn more about so I cant go into loads of details about this.

For me this was very nice, light and worked perfect with my meal tonight.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Main Course :

Spaghetti Carbonara £7.80

Carbonara can be done two ways, the good way and the bad way with cream….this I was very happy to see was done the good way.

This was really good! the flavour and everything about it was really nice.

It was a massive portion, as I ate 2/3’s of the portion as it was very filling.

I would have this again.

  • Flavour : 5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Desert :

Biscoff Cheesecake £4.95

My eyes are always bigger than my belly….as the saying goes….and I had to check out this cake as Biscoff anything is ALWAYS really nice.

So after my Carbonara I waited a while till I wasnt feeling as full, and started to eat this.

This was really nice, I liked the flavour and texture.

Overall :

Note : Just because this was gifted, that has not influenced my thoughts in any way. The above is a 100% honest review of the food.

Firstly a big thanks to FoodHub again, the service from the app just like the last few times has been perfect!

Service and food from Fratelli’s was really good, I was very impressed with the quality and the portion size.

I have no issued recommending either FoodHub App (IOS & Android) and Fratelli’s.
