“Excellent food slightly over priced.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Been a few times to this restaurant, food is excellent, service is good maybe slightly intrusive sometimes. The only real draw back is the price however it wouldn't stop me as the food is lovely.

“How a good Italian meal should be.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

I've been here a few times over the years and it never fails to disappoint. This is authentic Italian food served as it should be: with high levels of detail to ensure seamless and perfect service. The whole experience from arrival to departure, you are treated the way a paying customer should be. The staff are friendly and efficient and the food is totally delicious. I've had a few fish dishes here and each one is better than the last. They also do gorgeous starters, one in particular with pastry and asparagus, mmm. The wines are pricey but house wine is available and reasonably priced as is beer, water etc.
This is definitely a 'special occasion meal' place rather than everyday dinner. You won't be disappointed.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We enjoyed another fabulous experience ar La Vigna ,there is no doubt this restaurant is very clear in its intention to ensure the customer enjoys every aspect. The food is superb,the menu is full of dishes you would be happy to try next time as you will surely return. Our service was personal and attentive but subtle ,really pleasant, This is a restaurant for a special occasion as dictated by the price but it will always deliver ,we will be back.

“Excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

Delicious food - I think the best Italian food in Scotland (I'm part Italian). Wonderful service, subtle and not in your face. Wonderful fresh ingredients, with authentic Italian cookery, none of the 'tomato slop' that you find in many restaurants claiming to serve Italian food.
Yes it is not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and what you get here is delicious, fresh food in a lovely restaurant with staff who know their job. I've never left there unhappy.
Highly recommended.

Had a faultless meal in La Vigna last night. Fresh produce, good selection of wines and excellent table service. Definately visit this one again (and again)
