About Cafe Gandolfi

When I walk into Cafe Gandolfi every morning at eight o'clock, with the sun slanting through the big windows, the place is coming alive. Deliveries are arriving: bread, groceries, the fishmonger's van - and everyone is slipping easily into their routine, anticipating the first customer of the day.

We had a fabulous breakfast at Cafe Gandolfi. Not only was the food amazing, but the staff was friendly and helpful too. I recommend this restaurant to anyone that will be in Glasgow.

Always a warm welcome and cosy atmosphere. The amount of choice available just on the breakfast menu is incredible. Food is always well prepared and presented and delivered to the table quickly. Excellent service, friendly staff and fantastic food.Highly recommended.

I've been to Cafe Gandolfi several times, usually its a great experience so if you are deciding whether or not to go, I would say its worth a shot, normally I get good friendly service and great food. However, I'm not sure why this time it was so bad. I gave extra stars in my review because of more positive past experiences. It was difficult to get attention for water/bill payment etc, overall staff seemed disinterested, a big contrast to the usual warm-friendly experiences of the past. I ordered the duck confit, and it was so dry I had to peel away the hardened skin to find edible meat beneath. (I tried chewing the skin, it was too hardened to chew through). For the price of the meal, this low level of quality is quite absurd. I took my partner there to show him my "favourite restaurant in Glasgow" and was a bit embarrassed at the experience I was able to show him. I hope in the future Cafe Gandolfi can maintain their usual standard of superb food and service.

My favourite place to eat in Glasgow. Lunch and Dinner. Love the wood, tables, chairs and surroundings as much as the food and wine! Service always considerate, helpful and informed

Saddened to find what we were looking forward too was lacking in service, no Parmesan with soup, the Caesar Salad mentioned anchovies which did not find. Also you used to have strips of .parmesan with it. I fear your popularity on the tourist trail has lead to a certain lack of attention to detail and the old Glaswegian welcome.

Table too small, even for originally planned 6 people and not 7. Really close to wall and no space to move around. Plates were perched in corners of table. Service was very slow. Good food though.
