    What a lovely meal we had, the service was fantastic, quick and friendly. The food was beautiful and fast, and the value for money I felt was great. We had such a nice night, and the staff really were fabulous; especially the younger gentleman who served us most of the night. Would 1000% recommend for a lovely date night, celebration or family meal. The upstairs area also is so good for pre drinks before going out with its own DJ!

    A wonderful Italian dining experience in a beautiful building in the centre of Glasgow. The menu has a range of dishes that should allow most customers to find something they would enjoy. An extensive wine list is on offer to accommodate all budget levels. The service is excellent with friendly and knowledgeable staff who are attentive but not intrusive. Thoroughly recommended.

    The food and wine were beautiful. Lovely atmosphere in restaurant and bar area. Service was really poor, waitress didn’t say 2 words to us, we were not asked how our meal was at any point or if we wanted anything else. Not very attentive or even friendly which really brought the overall standard down.

    The setting inside the restaurant feels like you have been transported to Rome. The old building in royal exchange square is spacious with high vaulted ceilings and in entering we were greeted and taken straight to our table. The wine selection is vast and there is varied Italian options for the food. The beef was cooked perfect to our request and all courses were fantastic. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a lovely Italian restaurant.

    My recent visit to Banca di Roma in Glasgow was disappointing, especially when compared to many previous experiences. The Lasagne, once a favorite, was notably smaller and lacked the tableside cheese sauce pairing. No offers of black pepper or Parmesan were made for any dish, and the service felt rushed, particularly when selecting wine with the waiter visibly rolling his eyes when we requested to see the lists again, after he removed them earlier after we ordered cocktails, but asked for the list to remain. Our feedback on the meal wasn't sought, and a special note of my friend's 50th birthday was overlooked, despite being mentioned in the reservation, and visibly presenting her with gifts. Having recommended the restaurant for this occasion, this visit left me disheartened and embarrassed by the diminished service, portion sizes and attention to detail.

    Dreadful girl on reception would not let my 78 year mother wait inside as we were too early asked twice even asked if my mother could stand by the door told no no table would be available till 12, only to watch a family be seated at 11.54 am asked to take menu outside to pass the time also told no. Apparently this was all ok with the manager Caitlin asked however Matthew stated she never asked him. Shocking service to be honest it ruined the whole day going forward. We had to sit with our jackets nobody asked to take them. Starter was burrata cheese with tomato was ice cold and I mean ice cold. Main course was fine no dessert and service charge included although I should have refused to pay that. All in all shocking attitude from front of house my mother is 78 has Heart Failure in remission from bladder cancer high blood pressure never goes out as her mobility is now poor. If it was 10 years ago I would have gone elsewhere. Nobody poured our water (no big deal) but did for others or took jackets £122 for a lunch, no salt pepper on table I find odd. Will not be back I just hope that wasn’t my mothers last mothers treat as Caitlin was shocking no people skills did apologise only because Matthew was present but couldn’t even look at me when she did instead stared at the PC screen

    The Venue is beautiful, lovely atmosphere & looks great. The food was ok, a bit pricy for standard Italian food, nothing special. Service started off very well but tailed off, we weren’t offered dessert/coffee etc after our main & by the time they reappeared they needed the table back. We weren’t too bothered by this and decided to have a cocktail in upstairs area. Bar staff were very pleasant but were very busy and were unable to provide proper table service. Going to the bar to request service & then them coming to your table every time you want a drink or to pay the bill isn’t table service & it is a bit much to add on 12.5% for this! The cocktails themselves were lovely. Not sure if we would go back.

    I really wanted to like this restaurant. The staff were so lovely. The food was OK, not a huge menu, my pizza was warm. Adding a 12.5% service charge really needs to stop. I understand some restaurants add in 10% which shouldn't be happening either. As the customer I decide if I have had good service and what percentage to gift. 12.5% is not on. It ruins the experience for me when I see such action on my bill.

    Upon arrival at first glance it was a stunning venue. We then got offered table water which is a nice touch. We then ordered drinks that we waited roughly 15 minutes for. Once we ordered our starters came about 20 minutes after arrival which was good timing but we waited approximately 45 minutes for our mains after our starters got taken away which was very poor as we had somewhere to be after dinner. The food was average at best especially for the price we paid for it.

    Beautiful venue and all of staff were excellent from the girl at reception to the waiters and manager - all very attentive. The food was great and it’s nice to be able to see in the kitchen and watch the fresh pasta being made. The only slight negative I would say the prices are a little excessive. Other than that though it was great!

    Nice place, beautiful old bank building. I had looked ahead and saw the lunch menu and chose beforehand. However, on the day the menu had changed and what I’d thought I’d get wasn’t on the menu. The alternative was fine but check on the day you are going. Service was excellent, friendly and helpful staff. The chef gave us a couple of desserts to try from the new menu and spent some time chatting with us. Only one small downside was he was cooking up pickles and vegetable stock, I think, and the smell was a bit iffy!! We will definitely go back, maybe try dinner next time.

    Food was really tasty and good options on the menu, very slow service though between courses and waiters don't come to check if you need another drink etc unless you can find someone to ask. The 'feel' of the place is nice but a bit overpriced for what you are getting and the standard of service

    Best restaurant I have been to in a while, I felt like we were in a high end restaurant in Italy! The food was outstanding, very fresh and I loved that the kitchen was open, I feel the price reflected well on the food. The chef personally serving the food to guests tables was a nice touch and very personal. The staff were all so professional but also very friendly and welcoming. The decor was stunning, bathrooms were clean. I truly cannot fault our experience. A very special restaurant that I will be visiting regularly!
