It was the search for a traditional Scotch pie for breakfast that brought me to La Vita at 161 Queen St. The interiors of this pizzeria is warm, conveyed mostly by its dark wood panels, reflecting of gold-cognac hues from the ceiling lamps and surrounding decor. We were immediately greeted by our waiter who inquired after our stay thus far in Scotland and if we planned to do some sight seeing for the day. The recommendation for sight seeing was for us to head down to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum that housed one of the waiter’s favourite art pieces, which is a painting entitled Christ of Saint John of the Cross by Salvador Dalí made in 1951. It was his absolute piece of art work to spend hours contemplating. It reminded him of his daughter, who also loved that painting by Dalí.
