My Gluten Free Glasgow Rating: ♦♦♦♦♦ (out of 5)

Knowledge of staff: Brilliant! All the staff are really friendly and knowledgeable, especially the guy who I think is the manager, he really knows his stuff.

Gluten free menu: All gluten free options are clearly marked on the main menu with GFO.

What’s on offer: Loads of amazing options here, for every meal. Bungo do great brunches, as well as having GF starters, mains and deserts if you’re there for lunch or dinner. The houmous, veggie burger and lamb were all delicious. I’m convinced they must have the best GLUTEN FREE ONION RINGS in Glasgow. The burger rolls were so good I asked the waitress what brand they were – I was told they were from a main supplier and mega expensive. Nice that they don’t charge a gluten free supplement.

More info: I was told they have a separate fryer for their gluten free orders – great to know!

Basically… King (or Queen) of the Southside.

My Gluten Free Glasgow Rating: ♦♦♦♦ (out of 5)

Knowledge of staff: My waitress was lovely, really friendly and helpful, took all my questions back to the kitchen staff.

Gluten free menu: No gluten free menu here, I’m afraid. Disappointing especially when they were really accommodating and clearly had lots on the menu that was gluten free. Major point off on the My Gluten Free Glasgow rating as a result.

What’s on offer: Burgers! And seriously good ones at that. I was majorly impressed with the gluten free buns – not as crumble-tastic as I’m used to. Big chunky gluten free tats were the business. They also have other dishes that they can do gluten free like pulled lamb, superfood salad and cajun chicken supreme. But, personally, if I were you I wouldn’t pass up the high quality burger experience.

More info: Can’t do burgers without beers? Fear not, Damm Daura gluten free beer is in the house.

Basically… One of the best gluten free burgers in Glasgow.

Pazzo Glasgow

My Gluten Free Glasgow Rating: ♦♦

Knowledge of staff: I’ve tried Pazzo twice, once in the restaurant for lunch and once for a takeaway pizza. Unfortunately on both occasions I didn’t find the staff very knowledgeable or helpful when it came to explaining their gluten free offer. For example, when ordering the pizza I asked if the pepperoni was gluten free, after being put on hold for less than 5 seconds I was told they didn’t know. Really disappointing that no one checked.

Gluten free menu: There’s no separate gluten free menu, but the main menu says there are gluten free pizza bases and burger buns available. There’s no other indications on the menu about what’s gluten free, sadly.

What’s on offer:  To be honest I’m not completely sure what’s on offer for gluten free folk, the combination of poor menu and not great info from staff left me a little befuddled. Sardinian sausage and bean broth was lovely, pizza was pretty average. Also noticed some gluten free cookies on the counter.

More info: Pazzo Glasgow has just opened so I’m hoping they are open to some feedback from a critical friend.

Basically… An improved gluten free menu would go a long, long way.
