The restaurant has changed its name since our last visit. Previously known as Amaretto's , La Vita is little changed. The decor and menu, service and value for money remain the same and this is not a bad thing. There is plenty of choice on the menu - mainly Italian, but also Greek and a little Albanian. Special boards are... More

I took my wife along for a birthday treat, it has now changed name to La vita, but the standard of food has remained at a high standard - with the addition of an Albanian section. Portion sizes really generous without compromising on quality, we had one starter of garlic bread to share but wouldn't probably take this option next... More

We visited as a big group on Saturday evening (16). The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was really tasty, I had the halloumi salad and mousakka (both really good and served piping hot).

This is the the classiest restuarant in Ashington. Beautiful decor, fabulous food and great atmosphere. Not cheap, but you only get what you pay for. The food is excellent, the staff are on the ball, very pleasant. Great choice of food, something for everyone. You can eat cheaply or pay for something more expensive, steak or sea food. A very...

This is a great restaurant. I Go many times. The atmosphere is lovely staff are great. Nothing is to much trouble for them. If it's a birthday all the staff..including the chef..come to your table to sing and get everyone in the restaurant to join in. Food is delicious and wine even better. Well worth a visit. X

Nice place. Never lets you down. Good good. Staff lovely. Zero complaints here. Food always comes out hot. Decent menus. Prices good also as are the drinks. Would certainly go back. Only slight problem is the parking which is very limited. There is off street parking but I'd prefer something close. Great happy hour prices also.
