Zizzi (Princes Square, Glasgow) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Tonight I was having dinner with a friend, then heading off to the new Vue cinema to see Rock 4 Directors cut.

The Starter

Garlic Bread £5.45
Brushed with garlic and rosemary.

On arrival this was a big portion, I was expecting something half the size.

It visually looked good, and smelled good and I was hungry so I couldnt wait to try it.

This was really lovely, the texture, taste and flavours all were perfect!

If you visit here, you have to order this!

Main Course

Rigatoni Pesto Rosso £12.25
A creamy sundried tomato pesto and mascarpone sauce with spicy pulled harissa chicken.

I was going to order a pizza, but then spotted this and thought lets give it a try.

This sounded really nice, and with the spicy harissa chicken should have a nice wee kick.

The pasta was cooked perfectly, but flavour wise for me was a little bland. I didn’t get any spiciness to it even a slight kick.

Overall it was ok, but just a little bland.

Desert

When Tiramisu Met Brownie £6.85
Chocolate brownie topped with coffee sponge fingers and mascarpone cream, finished with gold balls and hot chocolate sauce.

From the description I HAD to order this, two things I like brownie and Tiramisu.

Presentation was nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig in.

I tried it on its own without the addition of the chocolate sauce.

It was nice but flavour wise I was getting MUCH more brownie than Tiramisu which was disappointing.

I then tried the chocolate sauce on its own and it had a slight burnt taste to it, due to it being heated up too much…but I poured it over and took a bite.

This was nice with the sauce, but still I missed the Tiramisu flavour .

On paper this sounded great, and very yumm but due to poor execution it should have been more 50/50

Overall

Tonights visit was a bit of a mixed bag, I really loved my starter and my main course was nice just needed a touch more flavour.

My desert was very poor, but as you can see from the photo it is MUCH more brownie than Tiramisu…if this got fixed to 50/50 that would make a massive difference.

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!

Little Italy is starting to become a second home for me, for lunches and meeting friends.

I always feel very relaxed and at home when I visit, the service is always very good and the food is always very nice.

The Lunch

Penne Salmone £12.95
Smoked salmon, cream, white wine, onions, tomato sauce

I wanted to try a pasta, as I havent had one yet.

I opted for this one, as it sounded very nice.

On arrival this smelled and looked very nice, my mouth instantly started to water.

WOW honestly this tasted amazing! the flavour was really good I enjoyed every single mouthful.

I could have easily had a second one, thats how good it was.

I will defiantly be having this again.
