Been coming to Nardini's for years, three different branches and always been fine. Tonight ordering a pair of coffees and a sundae for a post dinner dessert was challenging. Firstly, it took three times for them to get the order for a decaf cappuccino then the sundae turned into a bowl of toffee ice cream. When sent back were then... More

The only reason I know their ice cream is good is because we've visited before. I say this because yesterday we didn't even manage to taste any food at all, thanks to some of the worst customer service I've experienced anywhere. Yes, it was very busy. Thanks to the nice weather in Glasgow this weekend, there was a large queue... More

We used to love to go to Nardini's for the good coffee and excellent ice cream. when we were in the West End. On our last visit the place had changed; the tables are now arranged as two-seaters in clinical rows, our lattes were lukewarm and the vanilla ice cream, while still smooth and creamy, was lacking in vanilla flavour....

I can only imagine it gets more crowded as the afternoon wears on. We ordered standard ice creams, were just fine .. service was friendly enough though the milk shake was definitely milkier than...

As locals we popped into Nardini's in Byres Road a couple of times a week. The food and beverage offering is still good quality but prices have gone up again. Two years ago the service was brilliant with a very efficient and pleasant team in place, however the whole team including the manager disappeared and there have been a lot... More

Service very slow, staff sullen. This place has really gone downhill. And they never, ever let you sit at the top end of the cafe until the bottom part is bursting at the seams. A visit to Nardini used to be a lovely treat. Not now.

Our family in the 80s/90s use to go down to largs just especially to eat this famous families ice cream - in fact most of Glasgow did. If you want to eat the best Italian ice cream, search no further!!!
