Lobster Ravioli // Pane di Aglio

It's not that often I venture into the West End, and only tend to find myself there if I have an actual reason to be. However one of my old work mates now works just off Byres Road and has become fairly accustomed to the area and invited me out last Saturday to hunt out a new Italian. We decided to stop by La Vita Spuntini on Byres Road.

It's part of the La Vita restaurant group which has four restaurants across Glasgow and is mid-range Italian, but this one is more of a tapas style and encourages eaters to get more than one dish at a time (which you can see from the photos we did).

What did draw me in from the street was the very long vegetarian selection, which also included a few vegan-looking dishes. A lot of the vegan bits were technically in the starters menu but as this is tapas style it doesn't matter if you want to order three starters for the table along with a main. My friend is a meat-eater and the orange dish you see in the middle is lobster ravioli which she eventually settled on after considering the four pages of food (a steak was almost the chosen dish!).

It took us ages to settle on our dishes but we were glad we didn't get any more as everything was very rich and were stuffed by the end of it (I hate food waste so I was trying to get down every last bit). We headed to the Hillhead Book Club afterwards and I was almost sleeping over my (very lovely) cocktail.

  1. I love when places have tapas style menus since I always want to try everything! Hillhead Bookclub is great too - something I definitely miss about living in the West End of Glasgow x

  2. As a foodie this looks absolutely incredible and heavenly to me! I'll definitely have to visit La Vita Spuntini in the future if the food is this beautiful :)

  3. This has made me so hungry gah, looks good! xxx

  4. The Hillhead Bookclub is a G1 Group pub and should be avoided!!

    1. I became aware of this a couple of days after attending and I do fully support the G1 boycott, and will be avoiding in future. (However, I'd request that if you want people to support your boycott/opinion you perhaps don't jump on people's blogs and use sentences with multiple exclamation marks).

  5. Here is some reasons why
