Visited this restaurant with my boyfriend last year and had a lovely meal there. I ordered a calzone - it was so fresh and flavourful! Nothing like greasy take-away calzones. Wouldn't recommend for large groups but definitely for a date or small group of friends.

Friendly atmosphere, real Italian food of high quality and reasonable prices. During the weekends the place is fully booked, so make sure you reserve a place.

Looked on TripAdvisor to try and find a good, non-chain Italian in Leeds city centre and discovered Viva. We booked a table and truly wasn't disappointed. My wife and I were warmly greeted by a member of staff and was politely asked to wait by the bar whilst our table was prepared. We were seated remarkably quickly seeing as the... More

booked a table for 6 for 8.30pm on 11th April. Duly arrived, on time. The restaurant was busy and we were told our table wasn't ready but don't worry, have drink at the bar and it won't be long.......... An hour later, after repeatedly asking the manager when we would be seated and making short work of the complimentary garlic... More

Came to a gig in 'The Calls' one Wednesday evening and stumbled across this place walking from the car park. A little authentic Italian restaurant. Suited us perfectly. Three of us came to dine. It was quite early 5.30ish and so were lucky enough to take advantage of the early bird menu (three courses £15.95). The restaurant was great, authentic,... More

Stayed in Leeds all weekend, after some deliberation about which resturant to visit on the night we settled for Viva. One of the reasons was the ability to book a table. Some other local resturants operate a "turn up and wait policy", and we didn't really want to hang around waiting for tables on what would be likely to be... More
