Gloriosa (Glasgow, West End) 2021 : Review

The Visit

When I stayed in the West End I knew this place under a different name, and then it changed and I added here to my list to visit. During my time at the West End and due to lockdown etc I didn’t get to visit.

Tonight I arranged to meet a good friend, and go for dinner here.

Inside looks much brighter and more minimalistic and nicer than the previous look.

The Food

I had no idea what to order so I went with my gut feeling and just picked two dishes.

Starter : Burrata, Swish Chard, Lemon & Olive Oil £10

On arrival this was very Instagramable, just look how nice this looks.

Now it was time to taste and see if it tasted as good as it looked.

I tried the swish chard on its own and it was perfect, the flavour with the pepper was amazing.

I then tried it with everything else, and the lemon and olive oil combined with it WOW this was really very very good and one I would have again on my next visit.

My Rating :

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Main : Casarecce, rocket & pine nut pesto £12

This was another random selection, more so due to the pesto as I love pesto.

On arrival this smelled really good, and visually looked good to.

The pasta was cooked perfectly, and the pesto was very nice and it worked very well together.

My Rating :

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Overall :

I had a really good night tonight, the food was good and so was the company.

I am glad I finally got to check this place out, as it was a great night and they do really tasty food.

If your in the West End check them out.

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.

Mozza (West End, Glasgow) : Review

I have been to Mozza before, I was actually at their opening for the branch in the city centre and it was a great night.

Their pizza’s were really good, and I have been back a few times since it opened.

They recently opened this new branch in the West End of Glasgow, on Byres road and they invited me to come and try some pizza to take home and enjoy.

The Pizza’s

I ordered number 10 and 11 (without walnuts)

10. tomato sauce, mozzarella, goats cheese, spinach, caramelised onion, sun blushed tomatoes, extra virgin oil

Firstly how good do they look, instantly mega mouth-watering!!

The base was nice and thin, the crush was nice and fluffy and the whole flavour was really good.

I would easily have this one again, and I am giving it a solid 5/5

Rating: 5 out of 5.

11. mozzarella, gorgonzola, parma ham with fig, pear and white balsamic jam, rocket, crushed walnuts, extra virgin oil

This one sounded interesting so I thought lets order it, though I did ask for no walnuts as I am allergic to them.

The flavours that hit you as soon as you take a bite was just WOW, you could taste everything and it all worked perfectly together.

I loved the pear and white balsamic jam, this really lifted the flavours to the next level.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Mozza for making my Sunday night better with some Pizza.

I have always really enjoyed Mozza’s pizza’s and I have always put Mozza in my top 3 pizza places in Glasgow, and tonight’s pizza didn’t disappoint and were very very nice.

If you have never tried Mozza please do check them out, as I said they are in my top 3 pizza places in Glasgow when anyone asks me and every time I have visited its always been a great meal or great pizza.
