I reserved a table for 2 two weeks prior so I was very impressed that they had a table waiting for us. We were shown to our table very quickly and were given the option to move to a different one if we preferred. The meal was very tasty... I recommend their Prawn and Scallop Linguine although they did leave... More

We were a party of 7. We had booked but had to pay a deposit on booking as it was a special day. It was very busy, the staff were rushed but were still friendly and helpful and the food came in a reasonable time given how busy they were. The menu was fairly limited but the food was good... More

I attended with my family and children to enjoy a lovely mothers day treat. The set menu had plenty of variety and the food was tasty and well cooked. Lots of full tummies and happy faces. Staff were efficient and happy to help, even when one of our party wanted a dessert different to the menu.

Fantastic venue for our breakfast event. Thank you to Kamillo & the staff at La Vista who catered for our large event of 45 people this morning. The food was delicious, staff friendly and very reasonably priced. We will use you again. Many thanks. City of Expertise.

We re-visited "La Vista" after a year or so's absence to find new owners , a new ambience and great food and wine. I phoned late for a Valentines Night Dinner and left a message. The restaurant recalled me promptly and were able to fit us in at 9.00pm which suited us perfectly. We were welcomed with a pre-dinner Preseco... More

Hadn't been here for a few years, but the food is still excellent. We chose a small seafood platter to share as a starter - it was massive but totally delicious with a wonderful mix of different hot and cold fish and sea food. My daughter, who is a pizza afficionado, said hers was great, and my linguini was wonderful,... More
