I went there for my birthday with friends. We had a lovely meal, food was great and service really good. We were a group of 10, the previous group had not left yet when we arrived and they took their time but the staff was really welcoming. The food came quickly and it was delicious. Everyone had a lovely time... More

I just want to say that these people who complain that the waiter was talking across the room etc. Have obviously not business owners. Bit of communication between staff does not hurt. One can not have too many staff just in case the customers may turn up. So sometimes you have to stretch a little and manage. Running own business... More

Dropped into La Vida yesterday afternoon for the first time. It seems the chef was on his break when I arrived but I was made very welcome and treated very well while I waited - only a short delay actually. The food was good, the environment understated and the attention I received was fist class. Will definitely return

I've probably said this before, but if you want a faultless meal, with attentive service, in a friendly environment in Leicester, then you can't beat La Vida. It's small, the waiter is lovely, the food delicious (thank you chef). We will be back in November.

We recently ate there after turning up without booking. The manager could not have been friendlier and more accommodating. The food was served quickly and was of great quality. We will definitely be making a return visit.

I went with a group of friends and we all found the food to be excellent, the staff were friendly and the place itself was lovely. The manager was also generous with making sure we enjoyed our evening buy giving everyone one the table a free amerretto drink. I would go back again :)

We order a filler steak and sirloin steak which My brother and I finished all of. Our friends had a pork and chicken dish with some vegetables and homemade... More
