Popped in for a quick ice cream to go; thankfully, wasn't as crowded as others mentioned in their reviews, but the queue ropes were up .. 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!!!

Went in on a Tuesday evening with my sister after a walk thought we'd treat ourselves to a coffee and a cake. Waitress was uninterested from the moment she came to take our order. Cake was thrown down on the table followed by 2 cold coffees. When we asked for the coffees to be changed as they were cold we... More

From when it opened this has been a regular Sunday afternoon haunt. Great staff, good food and fab ice cream ( which it is quite rightly famous for). However hadn't been for a while and decided to go back a few weeks ago. What a change and not for the good sadly. You now have to wait to be seated... More

Stopped for a snack today with my family. The coffee, ice cream and cakes were excellent. Could try the variety of ice creams as the portions were huge, highly calorific and expensive. Smaller taster portions should be offered.. Loved what we had, great authentic Italian experience.
