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.

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.

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.

Patisserie Valerie (Glasgow) : Review

18-20 Royal Exchange Square
Glasgow G1 2AB

V: 13th August 2018      T:  0141 221 3090  W: www.patisserie-valerie.co.uk

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I like visiting Patisserie Valerie every now and then, more so for the afternoon tea but today I decided to try something else.

There are two locations in Glasgow, I don’t really have a preference but if I had to choose I think this one is a little nicer than the other.

The Food…

Starter

Spaghetti Carbonara  £8.75

IMG_0174.jpg

On arrival it looked a little of a disappointment, my next thought was why is there that light coloured cheese on it like that?

Another thing I noticed was the pasta was cut, rather than the big long strands…which am sure for some people is fine but for me this was strange. I am used to the normal way where I have to twist, and then eat…..

Flavour wise….not that great. Firstly it used cream and not the normal way, secondly the cheese through this was hmmm

Overall very disappointed, this was not good and I definitely won’t be ordering this again.

Sorry guys

La Lanterna (Glasgow, West End) : Review

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card


I have had La Lanterna on my list for a while now, as I wanted to try it when it opened but always never managed to get around to visiting….till now.

On entering we were shown to a table and made to feel very welcome!

The restaurant has a very modern Italian feel, and all the staff were very pleasant and helpful and welcoming.

Inside is not the biggest of restaurants, so if you want to visit maybe advanced booking is best so your not disappointed.

The Food…

Starter

Pate £6.95
Homemade smooth chicken liver pate served with sweet red onions & artisan bread

On arrival, I instantly thought this is a good portion size, and couldn’t wait to start.

This was so good!!! very smooth and mega tasty!!! I loved that this also came with crackers as normally when it comes to Pate, you always have more pate than you do to spread it on.

So having both meant that there was no pate left! which is a BIG pet hate of mine more so when its really nice Pate.

Very impressed!!

My favourite Italian dish and I had this recently at another Italian restaurant, so I used that as a comparison.

This was a very good and large portion, so much so I left some.

This was a very nice Carbonara, perfectly cooked and had a lot of flavours.

For me this is probably the second best Carbonara for me, the other Italian I don’t know why but it just had the edge over it but it is still a VERY good carbonara.

Prosecco Lemone £6.95
Prosecco and Lemoncello

Two of my favourite Italian drinks, combined in to two…now what couldn’t be good about this.

This at first was very hmmm is it nice? is it just ok….but the more I drank the more it grew on me and I enjoyed it.

I would have this again or even make it myself.

Overall

My first visit here was a good one, the restaurant is very nice inside and has a very relaxing feel.

The staff were all very pleasant and very helpful and made sure that everything we ordered was perfect for us.

The food was very nice!

I would like to come back again and try a few different dishes, and see how they are.

See you soon guys.
