The garlic dip and bread are spectacular! The dining room is cute, and service was great. The menu has something for everyone, although the shawarma was a bit fatty. Overall very good and fun.

Summary: Delicious and flavorful. You really can't go wrong with any of the dishes. The meals are well-priced and service is quick and polite. Portion sizes for lunch are perfect and not too large. Love this place.

I have been to La Pita for a quick lunch by myself, for a Friday lunch out with a group of colleagues, and for supper with friends and with my wife. They never disappoint. The place is due for some upgrades around decorations and especially washroom, but these shortcomings can be easily overlooked for what this place has to offer.... More

I enjoyed La Pita as a staple weekly take-out while living in Michigan. I then moved to the Sarasota, Florida area a couple years ago and have yet to find an Mediterranean restaurant that comes close! I miss the fatoosh salad with add on feta cheese, hot breads and garlic bread that stays in your skin for days... ;-) A... More

Tired and worn out holiday travelers ordered carry out last week from LaPita and were delighted with ample, delicious food! The food was delicious, very flavorful and we enjoyed each and every morsel. The price was excellent for the volume of food that we received. It was ready when they said it would be. We'll be back next time we... More

This is a great spot for lunch. Their menu includes a nice selection of Lebanese and Mediterranean items including pita, hummus, shawarma, and more. I had a delicious spinach salad with shredded onion, cheese, tomato and shawarma chicken. Service was friendly. The place was very busy for lunch but the food came out quickly and was well prepared.

The dressing on the Fattouch salad with chicken swarma was just olive oil. Had the salad in the past and it was much better but when we went there this week it was tasteless.
