Myself and a friend decided to go to La Vita for lunch as it was close to where we were meeting up and offered a reasonably priced menu. We were quickly given menus and offered drinks. My friend decided to go for the breaded mushrooms for starter and the fish and chips for a main course. I decided on the... More

I have been visiting this restaurant for many years now and it just keeps getting better and better. The service, the staff and the ambience are all excellent. The food is the best I have ever tasted, whether it's pizza, pasta, chicken or steak. I have never had a bad meal. They have amazing signature dishes also. I have took... More

Busy place, fast service, average food, rather cramped seating. Fine for a quick lunch but nothing special.

This was my son's choice for lunch as he had been before and was close to both of our offices. No booking was made & arrives at 12.30. Shown to a table on the Mezzanine floor. I had been passed La Vita many times and this was my first visit so I was surprised about the size when you take... More

Visited here today with my mum and 8 year old daughter. Staff were really friendly and welcoming, one waitress was especially nice and really engaged will my daughter when giving her the kids menu and crayons. Food was lovely, we had lasagne, pizza and ice cream. Not too expensive given the excellent location.

Food was tasty but really large portions for lunch time! The downside of this place is that it is way too small. Concerned that health and safety allow this establishment to cram in as many diners as they do. We are not large ladies thank goodness or else the effort to get to the mezzanine floor for our table may... More

I can understand that our mezzanine level can be quite crowded at busy times and it is something we are working on to try and... More

I had the misfortune of trusting La Vita with a major family celebration, booking a table in advance with a simple request of a "nice table" upstairs. I received a call around midday on the day to confirm my party. On arrival I was told our table was almost ready and would be on the busy ground floor near the... More

Hello. After Saturday night I was expecting to find a review here, but 3 took me by surprise. I find your review to be missing some very key facts to the events of Saturday night. I suggest before you comment on class and comprehension you take a look back at yourselves on Saturday. When you booked you requested a "nice... More
