went on Saturday evening for what I had imagined would be a lovely romantic meal, the food and service was good if portions were a bit on the small size (main course ), but the reason I have only given 1 star is because of the appalling behaviour of a large party on the table next to us ,they had...

This small but perfectly formed Italian provided one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Superb service and a quirky interior contribute to a relaxed and special atmosphere, but the food is nothing but Italian at it's absolute best. Top-notch ingredients are prepared with an expert touch to produce a range of wonderful dishes with not a single flaw.... More

Visited Viva at 5.30 p.m. on a Friday evening so understandably we were the only ones in the restaurant but it did fill up by the time we were leaving. The service is outstanding, the staff are attentive and accommodating. I ordered the crab and avocado salad for starters and it was devine. Followed by prawns in white wine and... More

Just called for lunch with my partner having wanted to try it for many years but never found the time. What an absolute jewel this place is. The good is to die for, the ambience perfect and the staff very attentive, tending to everyone's needs. If your looking for simple Italian food cooked really well, you won't find anywhere better....

Nice greeting as we arrived at viva. We decided on a early bird special. The house red wine lovely and fruity. Garlic bread was yummy, followed by firey spicey pasta, delicate and tasty chicken in a pesto style sauce. Followed by a slice of chocolate cake & a knock out unique coffee. Great service. A timeless italian in the heart... More

Out with a group of friends and decided to see if we could eat here without a prior booking, luckily they could fit us in. What a welcome the owner shook our hands and gave us a kiss on the cheek. They bought garlic bread to the table whilst we made our order. I had the calamari, it just melted... More

After a lovely day out we were looking for a quick bite and stubbled across VIVA. After we were seated, we had to wait a while for a menu, or drinks to be offered. We were kindly offered some delicious garlic bread and ordered our meals. The waiter was kind and offered us advise, in particular on my friends prawn... More
