Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2014 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2013 edition.

Proprietor Mario Pelosi at last making use of an alcohol licence for his classy little Italian-style deli and café near Kelvingrove Park is a welcome improvement. Beer and wine can now be served with the consistently impressive, organic produce-oriented Mediterranean-flavoured food, with opening hours extended a little to suit – watch the outdoor tables buzz with patrons on Glasgow’s rare warm summer evenings. The half-sandwich – Isle of Mull cheddar, rosemary roast ham and wholegrain mustard is a particularly recommended filling – and cup of soup deal is an unexpectedly filling lunchtime favourite. Hot dishes such as homemade Italian sausage roll or shortcrust tarts, both served with new potatoes and salad, suffice as a light dinner as much as they do lunch. Leave room for a slice of freshly baked sponge cake, in flavours varying day-to-day from white chocolate and lime to Tunisian orange and chilli.

Having been in Sonny and Vitos on numberous occassions I doubt I'll be back after our service at lunchtime today, the waitress basically insisted we take a seat outside and she would bring us a menu, we knew what we wanted and didnt expect a drawn out conversation over how much extra they would charge for some salad for a sit in sandwich - on the whole really disappointed if your that busy hire more staff !

Worth a visit for their Parma ham with gorgonzola and pesto sandwich alone. Sooo good!

Proof, is the last bastion of truth.
I'm sure your partner ate many things that day. Can he/she identify the (£3) sausage roll as the culprit, I THINK NOT!!

I frequent this establishment often and openly recommend it to others. It has a fantastic reputation for both taste and hygene.

Horrible experience xmas 2009. My partner bought a sausage roll (£3) day before xmas eve and was violently sick all that evening thus ruining the whole of xmas. I would never frequent this establishment and would NEVER recommend it to others
