We spotted the restaurant from the road and decided to have lunch. This is a fairly busy part of town and there are various light industrial buildings and some houses around. However, the restaurant itself is very pleasantly situated on the banks of the Forth and Clyde canal. It is a big, high, spacious converted room with kitchen to one side and good decor. There is a raised section at the back which I assume is used at busy times. Decor is good, the place is very clean and table settings, cutlery and crockery are first class. There is a wide choice of Italian food and one can have any of the pasta sauces with any of the pastas, or with rice - a nice touch. We each had rigatoni with carbonara sauce and this was very good, fresh and hot. My wife had a glass of Nero d'Avola and I had a pint of Moretti lager, both most enjoyable. For dessert, my wife had tiramisu and I had a super sundae of Amarena cherries, ice cream and cream. We each had an excellent decaff Caffe Azzurro to finish. The place wasn't busy (it was a Monday) and service was friendly and efficient. Total cost plus 10% tip was £46. We shall certainly come again and bring a couple of friends in the evening. Last but by no means least, the toilets here are modern and very clean - always a good sign.
