About Giancarlo's italian

Our family started their Scottish Italian story, many years ago, journeying from their humble beginnings in the mountain village of Picinisco, making their way across Europe, to settle, eventually, in Scotland, to make their living. Of the great diaspora, that spread Italians across the globe, none, could have been more improbable, than their settlement in the remote, rainy Scotland. However, the affinity between the Scots and the Italians was instant. Scotland challenged Italians, but ultimately accommodated them and, in turn, the Scots and Italians learned from each other.

The culinary imprint of Italians can be seen everywhere on British streets. Walk down any major city street, and you will likely find, an Italian, or a descendent, selling ice cream, fish and chips, or, food inspired by their homeland.

We visited during covid restrictions, no alcohol served however the food, selection of soft drinks and staff were all very good. The restaurant is nicely decorated and the food and ambience as good as they could make it. I hope this restaurant survives the most recent restrictions, thank you for putting a smile on my face, if only for a few hours. Good luck

It was so lovely to be back but so sad to see them having to close early due to COVID restrictions. Food, drinks and staff were lovely. Will reduce portion size for kids too .

Felt rushed and unwanted from the minute we arrived. Restaurant was far too busy and we were seated much closer to strangers than we would have liked given the current pandemic. I specifically asked upon booking if they would need our table back and despite being told no we were handed the bill and consequently asked to move after less than an hour. Such a disappointment as we had heard good things. Cocktails were nice but we won’t be back.

Requested water and ice. Had to ask for ice as the wine wasn’t cold enough. Had to ask again after 20 mins. Never got the water. Informed the table was ours until 7.30 pm. Paid the bill at 7.10 pm and we’re finishing our wine when we were asked to leave as there was a queue.
