Visited Nardinis on a whim due to the nice weather. Definitely wasn't disappointed. Great flavours of ice cream even on a sunny day when it would be most busy. Good customer service & didn't need to wait long even though it was busy. Can't recommend...More

We'd had dinner elsewhere and went looking for pudding - Nardini's has a name to live up to and the ice-cream certainly does! Sure, it's a bit run down but it's the product that's important. We each had two scoops and a coffee and it...More

I love Nardini, it serves the best coffee in Glasgow and I drink a lot of coffee. Kimbo is the brand I think. Italian staff are friendly and £2.50 for a cappuccino is better priced than you will find anywhere else on Byres Road. The...More

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...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...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...More

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...More

You should write to Nardini's with your complaint. Maybe they will change their policy. I am just a tourist from Canada, so I have no comment about their prices or decision as to where people can sit.
