Bruschetta - Glasgow
Wandering around Glasgow on a rainy Friday afternoon I was keen to see what restaurants are housed in this city. I've visited Glasgow a few times but until now I have never had time to eat out.
I asked twitter a couple of times if anyone knew of any good places to visit as I had no clue whatsoever! I had one restaurant contact me and advise they had a lunch menu... and that was it. Thanks to those who retweeted for me!
We got in to Glasgow and tried to follow google maps to the restaurant... which was trying to make us walk in circles. I eventually got there at 1.45pm and noticed that the restaurant closed at 2.30pm...
So we wandered around a bit more and finally stumbled across a small Italian place called Bruschetta.
It seemed quite cute from the outside and they had a lunch offer on.
I ordered a pot of tea to warm me up, as it was freezing in Scotland last Friday whilst everyone else back in Leeds was enjoying the sunshine. My friend ordered an Italian coffee.
I was surprised by the amount of food that turned up on my plate and the waiter commented on it too, 'you weren't expecting that were you!'. The soup was boiling hot and really comforting on a cold day, really tasty too. The pizza you could tell was made from scratch and used good quality ingredients, none of this plastic like cheese. It really filled me up and I too was a little worried about eating my dinner later!
Overall a great little find with a good selection of food. The lunch menu was an added bonus and I definitely got more food than I bargained for but quality wasn't sacrificed for cheapness! The service was great too, there was just one man in the restaurant who served everyone (although it wasn't that busy). He had a really bubbly friendly attitude which made you feel welcome immediately. We saw him greet people who were obviously regulars too kissing them on each cheek and showing them to their tables, which is always great to see.
