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.

The food was great as usual and the service was excellent. At that price, I wish the main came with a side rather than having to order potatoes to have enough of a meal.

Anchovies as a starter were very expensive for 5 fillets in oil, lamb portion small for money. Lunch was nice but expensive for what we received and as a result I don’t know if I will return. £74 for lunch for 2 people without alcohol is in my mind excessive. Service was good as was atmosphere.

Loved my cullen skink cod. Would have liked more choice of puds, but appreciate you have only just reopened and everything is a challenge at the moment. Staff were excellent (friendly and efficient service). Felt a bit cramped (with Covid in mind) but it's a small restaurant, so perhaps understandable - and temperature assessments, masking of staff etc all in evidence. Always enjoy eating here and will definitely be back :-)

Was lovely being back. Atmosphere slightly subdued but assume it’s a temporary thing due to restrictions. Booking online went well even when I changed my booking there were no issues.

We felt the restaurant was well organised and felt safe. Staff were welcoming and friendly. As always, the food was of very good quality and well presented.I really liked the "Cullen Skink". Only a very minor gripe, but we did think the layout of the menu was a little confusing. Signposting the different sections would make it easier to navigate.

Loved being back! Service and food were excellent as usual. Missed having the choice of chocolate croissants or a bowl of soup on the current, reduced menu. See you soon!

Cafe Gandolfi is a wonderful place to eat. The food is delicious, the atmosphere excellent, the decor beautiful. One of Glasgow's greatest institutions. I have been eating here for more years than I care to remember and hope to continue for many more.

Friendly, professional service started with a warm welcome back and careful explanation of Covid safety precautions. As ever, a first rate meal (this time a tasty brunch!). Every best wish to Seamus and all the Gandolfi crew.
