28 Years ago, after a long and succesful career in the Italian catering business Gina and her family started out in the Italian restaurant trade opening up a number of patisseries and restaurants across Glasgow. After a wealth of success and being awarded a Cavaliere - the Italian equivalent of being knighted - from the Italian Government for her contribution to Italian cuisine and business, Gina decided to retire back to her home village of Filignano in Italy and her family has continued to grow and expand the business ever since.
The family still own and run one of Glasgows most famous Italian restaurants, Il Pavone, in Princess Square. After 15 years the time was right to refresh what was formerly Il Pavone Sud to bring a new and exciting style of Italian restaurant and bar to Glasgow.
Very good service from a welcoming staff and food we had was great value for money as we were using an itison voucher
This was our first visit and we were delighted with the service and food. Restaurant was decorated lovely for valentines night, staff very friendly and attentive. Too many choices to choose from and will be returning very soon, yo finish our meal we were given a free lemoncillo from the owner which was delish
The standard of food has always been excellent each time I’ve been. Staff are always very pleasant and attentive. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant
The food was nice but the portion size was very small. I ordered a soup and a toastie, and the toastie was minute so it wasn’t really value for money.
Had a fabulous time for my daughter's birthday, we were a party of 8, staff very attentive, food amazing, I booked through open table, very easy, and to my surprise I received a £10 voucher to use at another date, I will definitely be back
I take an elderly Aunt for lunch to Nonna Gina’s whenever we are in Newton Mearns. We are always made very welcome and the food is always excellent.
Fantastic service, food and overall experience. We’ll be back
I have never had a bad meal in nonna Gina's. The meal was brilliant again and service exceptional. Cant wait to come back.
Great food and value with excellent and accommodating staff! Great value, as well!
Friendly, comfortable atmosphere suitable for families. Food was first class standard.
Such friendly warm service- felt like nothing was too much trouble. Very accommodating and fantastic staff.
Food was great, rave reviews from everyone at the table.
Lovely lunch with good service. Staff polite and friendly. Like that you can get small plate pasta/ risotto rather than a massive portion that might not be finished. Larger plate also available though. Food was lovely and served promptly. Would recommend
Have been 5 or 6 times now since moving to the area and have to say the standard of food, service, pleasantness of staff has been wonderful on every visit. I would definitely recommend this restaurant
I have been a regular customer of Nonna Gina's for years. It never fails to please. The food is excellent as is the service and ambiance.

Lovely family restaurant, great food and service, have been often and will be back.
Great menu, great food. Slight delay getting food but kept informed.
Great food & service, would certainly recommend. We went early on a Wednesday night and could not fault anything.
Lovely food and excellent service . A regular customer and was not disappointed with anything.
Fantastic meal as always. Gorgeous food, friendly staff and brilliant service. Cant wait to come back again.
Do not recommend as people have different view on what is good or poor
Food and service was great however it was very cold and there were quite a few flies.
Great food, very tasty. Service was excellent - very professional and friendly staff. Will go back again soon
Amazing, have been many times, breakfast, lunch and dinner all services top notch, would highly recommend
Lovely lunch, delicious taste and well served.
Brill resteraunt. I had a steak cooked to perfection. Staff very attentive. My wife's in a wheel chair so they had seats on the lower level. Toilets were ok for wheel chair user. Wife had a pasta dish which was perfect. Cheese cake to follow which was delicious. Thanks again
Lovely lunch well served in a nice location. Well done
When we arrived they informed us they didn't have any note of the reservation.
They did have available tables and finally gave us a nice table.
Not a good first impression.
Great food, friendly staff. A pleasure all round
enjoyed main course prawn dish with spaghetti. Been twice and each time thought the desserts looked better than tasted. rhubarb pie then carmel shortcake with ice cream. overall food good but bit over priced.
staff quick to serve.
Excellent food, lovely presentation, gorgeous desserts.
Perhaps service not joined up as we were served by 3 different waiting staff, asked more than once if we'd ordered, how was our meal etc, therefore waiting staff might want to liase with each other.
Otherwise a fabulous meal and would recommend and return.
great choice of food - reasonable price - good service
My second visit in two weeks. Service was friendly and excellent. We had a wee boy and a baby in our group and heating baby food was no problem. Waiters were friendly and approachable when wee .boy went to them to ask for more juice. Enjoyable family birthday dinner. Would go again. I really love the sea bass ravioli. Had it on both visits. :-)
