A wonderful experience 120%, the manager and staff could not have been more helpful and friendly in spoiling my friend for her surprise birthday - including sparkly candle, sing song and cake! Thanks for making our night a real treat and one to remember!

Table was booked for a family celebration & get together. It’s fine to tell customers the table will have to be vacated after 2 hours but it’s not okay to waste an hour of that time keeping them waiting for service then to tell them...their time is up & they need to leave immediately after delivering the birthday cake to the table! We were given plates to serve the cake & allowed to stay to eat it only after making a complaint. The staff were friendly & the food was fine but it was far too noisy for conversation so we had to wait until we’d left to do any catching up. It was very busy so clearly they don’t need to change anything to make a profit but I’d recommend avoiding if you want to enjoy conversations around the table in a relaxing environment.More

Our experience was amazing. 10/10 food 11/10 drinks and the service was immeasurable. I’ve never been to a venue where literally every single staff member was kind and welcoming. Peggy in particular was warm and helpful. She is certainly an asset to the team. Will...definitely be back again I absolutely adore this placeMore

We waited 15/20 minutes to even be spoken to about getting a table (there was more empty seats than taken) - when the waiter decided to speak with us he was extremely rude and very dismissive. We were sat outside - we asked to be...sat inside as it was very cold, which we were told no. But then others who were sat outside who asked to go inside due to it being cold were able to. Felt very disappointed in the service we received. Food was nothing special and the drinks ordered were nothing like described on the menu. Wouldn’t recommend and won’t be returning.More

We are regular customers of La Vita restaurants, particularly the Bishopbriggs restaurant which we live close to. I am gluten intolerant and have never had any issues at other La Vita restaurants however on this occasion I was served regular pasta and was then very...ill. It was made clear to the sever who sat us at our table that I was gluten free and I was given the gluten free menu. I also made this clear when I ordered my pasta. However when my pasta arrived I noticed it looked identical to my partners who was not gluten free. Normally the gluten free penne is a slightly different size to the regular penne. I asked my server could he confirm it was gluten free and he said ‘Uhm yes’ but I should have guessed that he didn’t have a clue. I ate my pasta trusting that I had done what I could and that the staff could be trusted and would take my intolerance seriously. However shortly after leaving the restaurant I took very unwell and all my tell tale gluten symptoms started. Had this been an allergy it could have been far far more dangerous and all because the staff didn’t make the effort to confirm. Further to this we are used to excellent customer service at Bishopbriggs which can be massively contrasted with the service we received at Spuntini. Despite not being particularly busy it was 20 minutes before anyone came to even take our drinks order. When it was eventually taken we ordered food at the same time given the wait. After around another 20 minutes we had our food but no drinks so we prompted our server and were advised it would be a minute. We had only ordered tap water and a Fanta so after another 10 minutes my partner went up to the bar to ask where both the manager and sever were rude and clearly didn’t care. We eventually got our drinks half way through our meal. Overall a shocking visit and we feel we need to warn people with allergies and intolerances.More

Very busy, bustling place. Seated upstairs and the place had a good vibe. The small plates, tapas style was ideal and the quality of the food was superb. Small pizette, Italian beef stew, chicken stew, bruscheta and side salad. All bursting with flavour.. Would gladly...return and recommend.More

We had lunch here yesterday - what a delight in all ways possible. The menu was extensive, what we ordered - we loved! The waiting staff were cheerful and quietly friendly. The bill was more than reasonable.

The place was very busy when we went. The staff seemed to be rushed off their feet. It was really hard to get anyones attention to order food or get more drinks. The lunch menu is good value and there are plenty options. The food...was nice, but nothing special. My cocktail was half foam which was very disappointing for the price (around £10). One of the waiters was a bit rude as when serving us our food came with a dish we didn’t order. He then kept repeating the dish name and describing it, even after we told him that’s not what was ordered. He then asked another server to tell us, as he claimed we didn’t understand what it was? We accepted the wrong dish to avoid a fuss. Probably wouldn’t go back.More
