One of the best

Good meal, restaurant is lovely inside too and staff are very attentive. It's relatively simple Italian food but very very enjoyable! Will return.

We stayed for one night in Glasgow. Whilst exploring we stumbled across this place and decided to dine there that evening - simply because it looked nice and the menu wasn't too expensive. We arrived about 1830hrs and it was busyish but were seated in the Tardis like building upstairs. First impression was that the place was immaculately clean. The... More

We are here on the evening of 15th February whilst on an overnight stay in Glasgow. We sat upstairs with views out to George Square and whilst it was compact this added to the cosy character of the restaurant and enhanced the experience. Service was good, attentive polite and friendly and whilst food was on the pricey side, especially the... More

I went to La Vita since I was meeting friends who were coming through from Edinburgh on the train so it was nice and handy. We had excellent service and a really nice night. It was very busy when we arrived at 6 probably due to the great value for money pre-theatre menu. Would happily visit again. The only criticism... More

Always busy when visiting but never wait too long for a table. Sometimes the food is really tasty, other times not so much.

What a surprise this restaurant was, I have walked past many times thinking it was just a cafe, however it is spread over three floors. I went with a group of girls and we were attended to well by staff. The menu was three courses for around £15 which is a bargain! The starter and main course were delicious and... More
