La Campana is a cosy restaurant where traditional Italian dishes are offered up in mixture of tasteful Italian and hearty Scottish style. Sure, much of the menu at La Campana is predictably Italian, with many familiar favourites you would find and other Livingston joints like bruschetta, minestrone, pizza margherita, spaghetti carbonara, bistecca fiorentina and tiramisu. La Campana sets itself apart, though, and those who know Bellsquarry well (La Campana is on Calder Road, by the way) most probably already know about La Campana’s less common offerings, like the ostriche alla corsara (6 oysters, baked and stuffed with prawns, salmon and Tabasco sauce then topped with breadcrumbs), chef’s special bistecca (succulent steak with olive oil, wild mushrooms and Jack Daniels sauce) and homemade Italian walnut ice cream. The cosiness is part of La Campana’s charm, but it does mean it fills up quickly, so it’s always wise to book ahead.
Food was excellent and service was very quick. The staff couldnt be more attentive. Wish we had more room for dessert however portions were huge. Will definitely be back.
Excellent food, great staff ( Frank) and very good portion size. We had haggis with a chilli dipping sauce, a very tasty calzone and a lovely pasta dish. Would definitely recommended.
Livingston’s best kept secret, huge menu but everything cooked perfectly. Good selection of wines and great service. If you like Italian food would recommend every day of the week.
