La Vita George Square

An inviting Italian pizzeria in the heart of Glasgow, La Vita is a split–level restaurant, cosily decorated with old family photos and glowing candles. On the corner of George Square at Queen Street, La Vita is well located for working lunches, shopping trip refreshment stops and pre-theatre dining. Of course, it is also popular with couples looking for a romantic venue for an evening meal. It is even open for breakfasts and mid-morning coffees. La Vita also has a great reputation for being family friendly. In fact, it won the Family Restaurant of the Year award at the 2012 Glasgow Restaurant Awards.

In addition to a value for money daytime menu, La Vita’s a la carte menu offers a great selection of classic and contemporary Italian dishes. As well as a range of topped bruschetta and crostini, starters include vegetable and meat antipasto platters; mussels in a white wine and cream sauce; nonno’s chicken wings, made with a secret BBQ sauce, and beautiful hand-tied burrata – a speciality mozzarella.

Stone-baked pizza are a big draw at La Vita. Choices range from the classic and simple Margherita to more racy options such as the chilli-fuelled Inferno. La Vita uses top quality Dececco brand pasta to make dishes such as the house penne – flavoured with chunks of chicken, broccoli, mushroom, garlic, cream and a hint of chilli. A short, select range of speciality pastas includes lobster ravioli and a Scozzesse penne featuring Stornoway black pudding and pepperoni.

The grill section of the menu has a tempting list of sirloin, rib eye and fillet steaks alongside lamb chops, grilled duck breast and Italian style burgers. As well as fish and chips – Italy’s most popular contribution to the Scottish diet – seafood options include Dublin Bay prawns in a garlic, chilli, cream and white wine sauce.
