La Vita Spuntini

With its chandeliers, chunky wooden furniture and wooden ceiling painted with heraldic devices, La Vita Spuntini looks a little as though a Medieval Italian banqueting hall has been beamed down into Byres Road. It is an effect which is heightened by the wood-fired pizza oven in the shape of a lion’s head.

If the decor is enjoyably rustic, then the extensive menu is right on trend with a focus on spuntini or tapas – the most popular culinary fashion in contemporary restaurants. There is a huge variety of spuntini available at this Byres Road Italian. Traditional Italian choices include the meatballs, lasagne and spicy Italian sausage with Borlotti beans. There is also a range of pizzette or mini-pizza including the Scozzesse – topped with pepperoni sausage and Stornoway black pudding. Other cross-border fusion choices include the Italian Scotch egg or the duck and Stornoway black pudding in a red currant jus.

Sharing is a big part of eating at La Vita Spuntini. As well as some communal tables – perfect for big groups – the menu features large bowls of pasta designed to be shared. In addition to the spuntini and sharing bowls, the menu offers a good selection of beef, chicken and fish dishes many of which are cooked in the charcoal oven for a smoky, barbeque flavour. Popular dishes include the surf and turf; the char grilled rib eye and the Scottish sea bass fillets served with Shetland mussels and spring vegetables.

If the pizzette are so good that you want a full sized pizza then La Vita Spuntini has a selection of oven baked 12 inch pizza. The pizza picinisco, topped with sliced beef and red chillies, is always a hit.

With cocktails, beers and wines served by the glass, carafe and bottle, La Vita Spuntini is a great West End choice for a party or a romantic meal.
