Yup back at Glasgow Amore for my 35th Birthday, this was booked by my girlfriend and it was a great place to have a birthday dinner.

I was recently here (see the review here) and enjoyed it very much, so I was very happy when I heard it was here.

Just like the last time we were seated, and given a few mins to look over the menu.

This time I was just having a main course, as there was a birthday cake waiting for me later so I had to leave room for that.

The Food…

I was a little bit of a bad food blogger tonight, but hey you can forgive me since it was my birthday….I forgot to take not of the cost but then again it was a treat….

Main Course

Fish Risotto

IMG_7874

I like a good risotto, one that has flavour, good consistency and also fills you up…

This was very nice and had a really nice pleasant, but not overpowering flavour to it. Half way through I was starting to get full, but I always finish what I order.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5

Overall

Overall very happy with what I ordered tonight, and again just like the last time I had a very nice pleasant and relaxing time tonight.

La Lanterna (Glasgow, West End) : Review

447 Great Western Road
Glasgow G12 8HH

V: 31st March 2018      T:  0141 334 0686  W: lalanternawestend.co.uk

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!!

Main Course

Spagetti Carbonara £11.95
Pancetta, garlic, egg, cream, parmesan

IMG_7685

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

IMG_7686

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.

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.

Paesano Pizza (Glasgow) : Review

94 Miller Street
Glasgow G1 1DT, UK

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


I have been to both Paesano both Glasgow and the West End one, and now I am back again.

Anytime I have been here its been good, plus I have always opted for the same toppings.

Do take note that you cant book here, you just turn up, wait and then be seated. The longest I have ever had to wait was maybe maximum 15 mins.

The Food…

Pizza

(3) Tomato Sugo with Capers, olives, anchovies, mozzarella, garlic and evoo £7

IMG_6383.jpg

So I wanted to try something different tonight from my normal one, so I went for this as not had one like this before.

This was very nice but maybe just too much of the same flavour for me, as something I think the capers where maybe too strong for my taste….

It was nice dont get me wrong but for me maybe too many capers.

Overall

Just like last time if you like pizza, and good pizza then this is your place to come. Yes they only do a limited selection but what they do they do very good.

Again please remember you cant book here, you just turn up and wait but waiting isn’t normally too long.
