    We had got stuck in traffic and my friend phoned to explain this, we were reassured this was not an issue and given a later booking which still accommodated the pre-theatre menu. The young blonde waitress/server was very helpful and attentive as was all other staff, we noticed her more as she was our main server. Very cheery disposition with all customers.

    A great restaurant for a pre or after theatre meal. The service was great, despite it being busy, and everyone was welcoming. The food was outstanding and very well priced with the pre theatre menu. A good selection of meals for vegetarians. Which can be difficult to find at times. We would deffinetely reccommend.

    Pre Theatre on a Saturday before show at kings theatre, excellent value at £16.95 for 3 courses. Service was speedy, and efficient and food was very tasty. Especially tiramisu! Will be our new go to if wanting to have three courses for the price of a main elsewhere...lasagne ,and salmon pasta included ,so it's not just cheap tomato based pasta dishes either.

    First visit, perfect location for pre-theatre and great value for money. Six small plates, portion of fries, one cheesecake, large glass of wine and a soft drink = £48. Service was great, food was really, really nice. Will definitely be back.

    I made the grave error of taking a garlic intolerant, fussy eater, elderly dear friend to Antipasti. Most Italian dishes are, of course, blessed with just a little garlic. Only when his baked pasta arrived did my friend ask the question. Our waitress could not have been kinder or more helpful. She organised the, very plain, lunch my friend requested without fuss and with tremendous understanding (of his food issues and my barely suppressed frustration that he hadn’t shared the information earlier). Five stars for service for that alone! This restaurant is a well loved local gem. It’s affordable, the decor is a classic of its era and the superbly hand crafted furniture, fixtures and fittings have a delightful, slightly rustic, charming character. They are, quite rightly, unchanged after several decades and add to the understated message that this is a high quality restaurant that really knows what it’s doing. Despite the hiccup over my friend’s food we had a wonderful, simple, authentically Italian, lunch. Incidentally the house red is excellent- just the right level of tannins with a hint of pepper and a real hit of dark fruit. The food is unfussy, traditional and always delicious. I am a regular and hope to be so for a long time to come!

    We were on a pre-theatre meal before attending a performance at the King's Theatre nearby. We booked for 5.30pm as the show started at 7.30pm and the timing was really good. We had the 2 course menu, and enjoyed our starters and pizzas. The pizzas are some of the best we have had - very light and tasty. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We will return to Antipasti.

    I booked this restaurant for myself and my wife before we went to a show at The King's. From the warm welcome to leaving was a lovely experience. We both had the pre-theatre set menu, a soft drink each, and i had a coffee to finish, all for less than £40, great value. I had the pate to start, my wife had the mini bolognaise, freshly made and delicious, and the red onion marmalade with the pate was delicious. For the mains i had lasagna, and my wife had the risotto, again, all freshly made, and delicious. We did not have enough room for a pudding, that is how filling it was. I would highly recommend this restaurant. We will definitely be back.

    Whenever in Glasgow we have to go to Antipasti and have done for 20 years+. We like everything about it. There is one woman working there, I don't know her name but it's always nice seeing her. We will never miss a visit to Antipasti when going to Glasgow.

    My food was ok but my husband’s soup was cold and when he asked for it to be heated when it came back it really wasn’t a lot warmer, his peppercorn sauce for his steak wasn’t even warm and by the time he had eaten half hid steak his whole dinner was cold, very disappointing but the sticky toffee sponge was lovely
