RESTAURANT operators La Vita have been given permission to open a new eatery in Baillieston.
City planners approved an application to use premises at 175 Baillieston Road as a restaurant, with in-house bakery and hot-food take-away, function suite, roof terrace and external seating.
The space was formerly part of a large Co-op store but permission was recently given to sub-divide it.
The whole operation is expected to employ around 26 full-time staff and 18 part-time staff.
A supporting statement submitted with the application explained: “The design theme is ‘outdoors inside’ (Mediterranean style creating a romantic and family-themed destination).”
