We are, always have been and hopefully always will
be a family-run restaurant. Our head chef, Angelo, hails from Palermo on the Island of Sicily and and our head waitress, Francesca,
has been living in Glasgow for the past 14+ years after moving here from Sorrento. Both have worked with our
family for well over 20 years combined and because of such our menu and atmosphere contains an unrivalled
and inspired Southern Italian feel. We are the Merchant City's only truly authentic Italian restaurant with Sicilian
and Pugliese kitchen staff, a Sorrentine head waitress and a Molisan proprietor.
Large parties are regularly
catered for and special set menus are available on request to suit all dining requirements. If you are
one of the guests who shall be dining with us as part of one of our great many large group bookings in the coming weeks then we
are looking forward to welcoming you to our beautiful, comfortable and modern restaurant.
