Visit Date : Thursday 30th March 2017

I have been visiting the West End of Glasgow a lot more recently, as I have been spending time there with my girlfriend.

I had seen this restaurant a few times, and thought I should visit it sometime. When i got an email through from Itison for 2 mains for £10 for Sorrento I couldn’t not get it.

First Impressions :

On entering you go a staircase that is nicely decorated, and gives you that Italian feel.

On entering the restaurant you can see how nice it is in here, its got a very Italian / Mediterranean look and feel I was very impressed and instantly felt relaxed.

I love Italian food so I was looking forward to my meal tonight.

Risotto Pescatora

I won’t mention the cost as I was using a voucher.

I love Risotto so I am very fussy when I order it from any restaurant.

I opted for the fish risotto, to see how here does it and also how they work with flavours.

The Risotto was nice, it was cooked perfectly and the taste was very nice. The flavour of the fish wasn’t fully there, as the sauce took over more but it was a very nice dish.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 4
Presentation : 4

Side Note : my girlfriend ordered the Spaghetti Carbonara and I tried some, this was again just OK but seemed to be drowning in peppercorns which killed the taste for me and her and also mad her cough a lot. This should not be this way, the pepper should be added once it arrives at the table to the amount the customer wants not added when making the dish.

Dessert :

Have to have dessert when you go out, as everyone including me can always find room for something sweet.

Tiramisu £?

The Tiramisu arrived and I liked the presentation, so I was hoping it tasted as good as it looked. I can’t remember what the cost of this was, but it was around the £5.00 area

It was just OK, for me it didn’t have enough coffee flavour as it should have had. It was very creamy, and also had a lot of sugar on the top of the dessert.

Portion Size : 4
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 4

Overall :

Overall my visit was a nice visit, it did have its ups and downs mostly due to the flavour of my dishes tonight.

For me I don’t know if I will return, I normally give a place 2 visits then decided so maybe I would try a pizza when and if I return.

I am glad I tried here with a voucher, as I feel tonight it helped with the bill and it was value for money with the voucher.

Visit Date :  12th March 2017

I enjoyed my last visit here, I decided to see how the food was.

On arrival we were welcomed and shown to our table. I only found out at this visit, they have more tables and seats downstairs.

Downstairs is also nicely decorated, and has a nice cosy atmosphere and feel to it. I didn’t take any photos as there were too many people about, and they were enjoying their meal so I didn’t want to make them feel uncomfortable.

Starter :

Pate’ Brulee £8
Rich chicken liver pate infused with cognac, port & thyme. Finished with a candied crust.

I love pate, so I had to try it here and see what its like.

When this arrived the first thing I noticed was there was some topping on the Pate, I have never been anywhere where its been presented like this.

This was a candied crust, the thickness was thin so it was easy to break. It didn’t really add anything to the flavour of the Pate, more just gave it a slight crush.

This was probably the nicest Pate I have had, and I will be back for more.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 4

Main :

Toscano (Pizza) £12
Tomato, mozzarella, Italian sausage, potato, onion & chili

Tonight my girlfriend and I decided to share a pizza, and this was the one we decided to go for.

Normally when I have ordered a pizza its come round, and on a round dish this was more rectangular which was interesting.

The base was very nice and thin, the topping was very nice and overall it was very filling. For me personally I could have done with a little more sausage, but thats just me being a pig.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5
Presentation : 4

Dessert :

Tiramisù £6

IMG_6060

Yes I had this last time but today we decided to order a dessert each, and have half of each.

Again just like last time this is very moreish, and if you like Tiramisù then you have to try this.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5

Poached pears with vanilla cream (GF) £6

IMG_6061

This was the first time having this…well half as this sounded very good.

The presentation was very nice, and the pears were nice and soft. It was nice, but the flavour for me wasn’t for me.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3
Presentation : 4.5

Overall :

This is now in my top two places to eat in the Glasgow West End, its very relaxing, the food is good.

The social media side of Eusebi Deli who ever runs that, is also very friendly so do check them out.
