Love this restaurant !! Second time we went and still as good. The owner brought out sample of food for my partner to try as he is so fussy. Always making sure your happy and look after you well. Not a bad price either. Will definitely return next time am in leeds

We were away for the weekend staying in Leeds and not knowing the City that well decided to venture out and take a punt on something. We were very lucky to come across Viva - it was busy but they found us a table for 2 nonetheless - bustling, friendly atmosphere and an intriguing mix of art and photography decorate... More

We ate here as a group of 8 adults on a Saturday night. Service was relaxed but could have been a bit quicker at times. Food was tasty but I felt the lasagne was a bit of a let down, however the courgettes from the side dishes were amazing! Unfortunately the restaurant had run out of Tiramisu but they didn't... More

The owner really makes an effort to make this a genuine family restaurant. You can tell as soon as you walk in his heart is in the place. Food is lovingly prepared and tastes beautiful. It's the little things that make this place so special. For example bringing a complimentary garlic bread while you wait, the warm meet and greet... More

Food and service is amazing in this and also they don't rip you off with the wine. Sauvignon Blanc is £18 and it is a good Marlborough wine. Be back again next week no doubt. I would Recommend the prawns to start and then calzone pizza not the normal fold over of a full pizza base version

This restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel Marriott where we were staying, and we were not disappointed. A little family run restaurant. Food was fabulous, staff were very friendly and overall a most enjoyable night. Highly recommended.

Staying in Leeds on business and this restaurant was recommended by a colleague. We arrived at 7pm and were greeted with a warm friendly welcome. As it was before 7.30 in addition to the main menu was the option of a 3 course set menu for £15.95. We opted for the set menu, which also allowed for pizza selection off... More
