We arrived at Fratelli Sarti in Renfield Street just before 5 yesterday and were told we could have a table as long as we left again by six. Now, normally I wouldn’t agree to this as I absolutely hate feeling rushed when I’m eating but we thought we could go for just the main then go somewhere else for dessert.

I had Gnocchi alla Sorrentina (v) for £11.90 which consists of fresh potato gnocchi with cherry tomatoes, oregano and tomato sauce oven baked with mozzarella. Apparently this is a dish from Sorrento and it was so flavourful and moreish. On an ideal leisurely evening it would have been accompanied by wine and followed by coffee and a delicious dessert – maybe a lemon tart – but that will have to wait for another time. My companion had Ravioli Pomodoro for £9.50 which was said to be tasty too.

Even although it was only one course, it still felt rushed as they kind of forgot about us until 5.45 so it would have been difficult to grab a coffee if we had decided we wanted to do that.

Fratelli Sarti do a pre-theatre menu too which is worth a look but if you want to have a relaxing meal then book a table.
