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

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.

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.

On my many walks in the West End, I have passed here a few times and always thought next time I am here and feel like a pizza I will jump in and give Baffo a try….today I did just that.

On entering I was shown my table, and sat down and had a look about.

This is a nice addition to this area, and inside has a very nice clean modern feel.

The Food…

Pizza

Milanese £7
Sugo, fior di latte, salame Milano, mascarpone

On arrival this was very good looking and made my mouth water, it looked like it had a nice thin base (my fav way) and smelled really good.

Lets start by saying this was a little watery? is that how you would describe it? mostly due to the toppings and how thin the base was. Some people like this, some don’t….me I am not fussed as long as I like the pizza.

I really liked this pizza, and like the taste and flavours. Unfortunately tonight I wasn’t super hungry and shocker I left half the pizza….but I did take it home to finish later.

The first time I tried this was at Paesano, and really enjoyed it so I thought lets see how it is here….and yes I know I said I was full with the pizza but there is always room for something sweet :p

Its simple, it works, and its nice!!

My first visit here I would say was very good, the prices for what you get is really good and I cant fault my first visit.

I will be back.

I have had Amore on my list to visit for a very long time, but Merchant City is not an area of Glasgow I tend to visit a lot mostly as I am either in the centre or West End….but I have added a few more restaurants to my list so I will be seeing this area more.

While I was at work I got a ping in my inbox, and it was an invite to come and visit Amore and feel the atmosphere and taste the food….now how could I refuse I LOVE Italian food so I thanked them for the invite and accepted.

First Impression :

On entering it had that traditional Italian restaurant look and feel, and as I was walking to my table the smells ohhhh mmmmm my mouth started to water right away.

Looking about everyone was having a good time, and also enjoying the food so I couldn’t wait to take a look at the menu and see what I would order.

As my readers will know from my posts, I have visited Italy since I was about 6 months old every year so when it comes to Italian food I am VERY fussy!!

The Food…

Starter

Calamari Fritti £5.95 (Tonight £N/A)
Deef fried squid. Served with tartare sauce

IMG_7575.jpg
On arrived the first thing I noticed was, this was a big portion for a starter but I was hungry so it was perfect for me.

Normally this is a very hit or miss dish, so time to dig in and see…

This has to be the best Calamari I have had, the Calamari was not chewy or rubbery it was 100% perfect! I am very impressed so far…

Main Course

Spaghetti Carbonara £10.25 (Tonight £N/A)
Strips of succulent bacon, garlic, white wine, black pepper, egg yolk and cream

IMG_7576.jpg

On arrival this looked so good, and smelled so good…..

WOW is all I can say this was again perfect, the flavours were just amazing with every mouthful!! I cant wait to have this again, and again I think this is the best Carbonara I have tasted!

This for me was a little disappointing, it didn’t have enough garlic for me but that could be a personal thing.

It was just ok.

Tiramisu £5.45 (Tonight N/A)

IMG_7584

This was nice, not as strong a flavour as I would have liked but it was still very nice.

To be honest by the time I got on to this I was really full, so I was only half enjoying it due to that but it was very nice and I will have it again next visit and when I am not ready to explode 🙂

Overall

As always even though tonight’s food was free thanks to Amore, I am still writing a 100% honest review.

Apart from the Garlic Bread, I enjoyed everything from start to finish. The portion sizes are amazing, and due to that its very good value for money.

At first I thought the starters were larger due to me being a blogger and Amore knew I was there, but looking around nope! everyone had just as big a starter so this is very good!!!

Amore is now my favourite Italian in Glasgow, due to the amazing flavours and value for money. I know this restaurant is a little out the main centre but do check them out, you will not be dissapointed!!!!

Finally a BIG thank you to again Amore for inviting me, I had a fantastic time and fantastic food!!

Grazie
