We were in restaurant today, unfortunately my mother took unwell with the heat, went outside and collapsed and burst her head open. Manager and staff were amazing, couldn’t thank them enough. Manager sat with my mum holding her hand and reassuring her until the ambulance...came. Couldn’t thank him and his team enough. Shows you kindness is still out there even through these hard times for the manager to sit with her for almost an hour while his restaurant was full of customers. Before this happened, atmosphere, cocktails and food were excellent!More

We decided to have a family take away from here which is usually very good but we recieved meat in a vegetarian dish and a pasta dish that was DRY. The steak was OK. Our meal was cold upon delivery but we do stay a...bit away so that's expected. We called to complain about the food after all we spent over £70 and was met with a rather abrupt guy who told the duty manager I was having shouting at him that, I most certainly wasn't. I explained to the manager our problem but he was not prepared to accept our complaint or that his staff were rude, he denied that the other guy said I was shouting even though I heard him as they did not put us on hold. Very disappointed I'm sure Marco must be happy at loosing regular customers as we won't be back now. I had to cook for family instead and what a ruined evening after a stressful week at work as hdu nurses in the covid pandemic. Rude staff poor food ruined nightMore

La Vita has recently opened for a Breakfast service and we would highly recommend it. Great Food Great Service Great Value The warm friendly welcome is always great from Zaffa and his team. Full Scottish breakfast with toast, tea/coffee and Fruit Juice for £8.95 Great...to get out to eat during current restrictions so the 9am opening is very welcomeMore

Having used this restaurant for years now, and as much as I love their food, I’d have to discourage anyone who hopes to get a home delivery on a Saturday night in a decent time. Tonight I ordered my dinner online with their own website...at 18:15 and was told it would take an hour. When I called at 20:00 it hadn’t even left the restaurant. This is the second time in a month I’ve had awful home delivery from la vita when it’s operating only as a delivery or collection place. Happy to take your money online then not stick to their commitment to deliver on time. I’ll start using different Italian restaurants in the same area from now.More

We normally got to their restaurant on Byres Rd however decided due to the rain etc and living in Bearsden we would make the short drive to Bishopbriggs. Terrible mistake. The restaurant was bursting of people, large tables with undoubtedly more than two households. Communion...celebrations up stairs with the large party walking about above us, no masks etc older woman chair backing onto my husbands no two metre rule. We left out mains on the table, paid and left. I attend the Beatson therefore my immune system is very low, COVID breeding ground.More

First time but won’t be the last infact just booked for my sons 18th birthday meal The food was fantastic infact the starter of chicken & jalapeño in sticky sauce was the best I have ever had. The mains were stunning we had carbonara and...pasta casa Mia with sides of garlic bread and onion rings( I get them everywhere I go but these were the best ever) The service was great and friendly so this will become a regular place for us.More

Far too busy to meet social distancing restrictions. Every booth was in use, no way are they 2m apart. Personally I would say only half of them should have been in use. Cleaning materials were used and returned repeatedly to a table where they were...in close proximity to uncovered cutlery and napkins. Getting out was a nightmare.... We were left standing for a period of time close to the door unable to leave due to customers entering and waiting to be seated. During this time we had to stand extremely close to the tables next to the window while staff sqeezed by regularly. Great food but until things get back to normal i won't be back.More
