Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about Pellegrino water?

I've done my homework looking up the content, and I like the fact that it is bottled in glass.

I recall having it before and it was very bitter, or is this just me? Or is the bitterness one of the reasons people like it and buy it?

  1. I had a bottle of Pellegrino in my hand when I walked in and saw your post. I like the flavor, though I would not call in bitter but maybe just a little mineral....but then it is also called mineral water. I buy it by the case at Costco and generally use it at dinner parties or to dilute juices and sodas.

    1. I don't buy mineral water for home use but come across San Pellegrino in restaurants fairly often, particularly Italian ones. I quite like the taste, finding it fairly neutral in comparision with a couple of other well known ones. Works very well with food I find

      1. I'd rather order and drink Pellegrino instead of wine in a restaurant

        1. It's not bitter, it has a fairly neutral taste.

          I hate Pellegrino...I'll easily drink 2 large bottles a day during the summer. PITA lugging the cases home and recycling them. That's easily 2 cases a week.

          They sell it at Starbucks in the small bottles, you can give it a try again.

          1. It's fantastic water, I agree with escondido, I wouldn't describe it as bitter but it does have a nice mineral taste to it.
