Glasgow Times readers have shared their memories of a beloved long-lost city restaurant. 

This week, we wrote a nostalgia piece about Dino's, an institution of Glasgow's food and drink scene which closed in March 2014 after 50 years in the city.

Dino's was a favourite eatery for many of us in Glasgow, and the feature has prompted some of our readers to reveal their stories about it.

Jane Bisset said: "Where I had my first date with my now husband. I had lasagne. He had chicken salad. I eat mine and his."

Francis Ferrari first opened Dino's on Sauchiehall Street back in the 1960s and it was your typical idyllic Italian restaurant, serving a range of dishes including pizza and pasta.

Glasgow Times:

Like straight from a movie, diners would sit at tables with red chequered tablecloths and candles stuck in empty wine bottles. 

Readers shared their love of the food, with Carolann Smith saying they "made the best four seasons" pizza.

Jenna Baillie commented that they served the "best doughnuts ever".

Carol Mcgregor added: "Got my first doughnut from Dinos in the 60s."

From family dinners to date nights, Dino's catered to everyone and anyone in Glasgow, and it was truly a sad day when it closed. 

Reader John Reid said: "Took a girl there on first date back in October 1999. Together [for] almost 25 years, and married for 16 years.

"Defo has fond memories."
