Food was nice enough, no complaints there. Huge portions etc, but felt the food was slightly overpriced for a bowl of pasta! Place was really really busy, but this did not affect our service, the waiting staff did not stop, very efficient and friendly. Probably would return, but maybe on a 5pm... read more

I first visited here on mothers day with my mum for a spot of lunch while out shopping and i have since returned numerous times! It has such a lovely atmosphere and the food is outstanding! The food is also a very reasonable price which is great too! I would recommend the Bruschetta as it is my all time favourite... More

It is always a pleasure, food and service are wonderful, the price is extremely cheap for the portions you get!! Just make sure you book as it's always full! Don't be put off by the return of the table within 2 hours, they're so efficient in there you don't need two hours!!

I visit La Vita at least once a month and i'm never disappointed. Great food, great service and nice atmosphere. They do lots of excellent veggie options and are very accommodating. The penne arrabiatta is the best ever! And all at a great price too :)

Have been on numerous occasions and enjoy my meal every time. I try to vary my choice of meals and have never been disappointed. Portions are large. Staff are so lovely and attentive. Wine always chilled to perfection and served with a smile.

Warm welcome, authentic atmosphere, great service along with very nice meals. Attentive staff throughout and the three of us all enjoyed our diner completely. Meal portions were very generous, as well as tasty so great value and the bottle of Chianti served at just the right temperature.

Three of us went for a meal after work. Service was rushed and was a bit haphazard and the food was very average. We were disappointed, as we had heard good things about La Vita. Not sure we will be going back in the immediate future.

One of my favourite restaurants in Glasgow. Visited it several times with my partner and always had great food and service. Would highly recommend it to anyone who like Italian meals.
