When I walk into Cafe Gandolfi every morning at eight o'clock, with the sun slanting through the big windows, the place is coming alive. Deliveries are arriving: bread, groceries, the fishmonger's van - and everyone is slipping easily into their routine, anticipating the first customer of the day.
Gandolfi Fish are part of The Glasgow Restaurant Festival, running from April 18th to May 1st 2016.
A spectacular menu has been put together at a deal of just £15 for two courses, or £18 for three courses.
Available Sunday to Thursday, from 12-8pm. Please call 0141 552 9475, and quote Glasgow Restaurant Festival to book a table.
