With Glasgow on high alert as Chris Pine darts around to shoot scenes for a major upcoming film, it has emerged he popped into the newly-opened La Lanterna Italian restaurant.

The Great Western Road eatery - which opened at the weekend amid much anticipation - took to its Facebook tonight to post a snap of the 37-year-old Californian with a staff member.

The restaurant said: “None other than Hollywood A-lister, Chris Pine, walked into La Lanterna West End on our launch day for a spot of dinner! We promise the photo wasn’t taken on a potato...

Glasgow Times:

“Lucky Magda was the one bold enough to ask for a snap.”

Chris has also been snapped at another Italian in the city centre, as well as outside SWG3.

The pictures comes after the Evening Times previously reported how the actor has been spotted in and around the city.
