We put a poll in our story last week and the message was clear, you guys love this place! Popping into this Italian for the lunch menu has to be reviewed differently to the A La Carte or Pre Theatre. On first impressions this place felt exactly like walking into a restaraunt in Rome with the narrow stairway up, cosy decor and open kitchen with wood fired ovens and abundance of Italian waiters. It feels authentic and family run!
I choose the 2 course option which from a price point is great value. Bruschetta is one of my all time faves so that is chosen with a nice medium toasting and great tomato/olive oil dressing. I was impressed with the flavour & it wasn’t too dry which some places I feel just toasting bread and chucking tomatoes on top I felt this was made with more thought and while not a complicated dish the bread was saturated with not being soggy and had a lovely freshness. The main course I had was Vegatarian Lasagne, for me the sauce felt more like a jar quality and the vegetables were slightly undercooked. It was a decent portion but was average tasting, although it was more suited to the price of the lunch deal. The service was good but there were a lot of waiters running up and down, back and forth for the amount of covers on a week day, and there was an overly attentive feel with different waiters asking me to order drinks and food - not great communication between staff.
The value was good, the food wasn’t terrible but I wasn’t amazed, although it did feel like a cosy environment. Based on the lunch menu options, I would like to revisit with some others to gain a more authentic experience which I feel this restaurant could provide. @amoremerchantcity #amore #italian #glasgow #merchantcity #foodblogs #instafood #instadaily #reviews #critics #italy #bruscheta #lasagne #lunchdeals
