La Vita Spuntini Review

  • Rating Pre-theatre at La Vita Sputini with 2 kids (Rating 2.8/5)
    Thought that there would have been too much food being 3 tapas each for £12.95 - as it transpires, it was just about right. Tapas is a good concept, as you get more choice. The moules were a little small, but tasty enough - weren't shy with the cream! Garlic bread was little burnt, and only came with 3 small bits (how much is bread?). Olives nice enough. Frittata disappointing - small, even by tapas standards, and a little dry. Similar to the moules, the rich cream content in the pasta was only manageable due to the small portion. Salad was ok... again, a bit heavy on the sauce. Kids had pizzas that were good. They ate all of them. Also, Peroni was a decent price for the west end, and the prosecco was also nice. Staff friendly enough, and service was good. For £13 at pre-theatre time, I'd expect something of a slightly better quality. I think trying to offer the 3 tapas, dessert and fizz that perhaps quality suffers a little? Brian p.s. Don't quite get the teddy's and bottles of fizz around the balcony it's a bit 70's Italian bistro. Perhaps that's the look they're going for.
