My husband had the lasagne and I had the meatball stuffed with mozzarella and finished in a tomato sauce - both were to die for! For desert we decided to share Maria's white chocolate cake. ..wow!! The meal was superb and when... More

I would eat here every day, if I could. Everything was delicious. Tiny restaurant with maybe 8 seats. Everything is as good as it looks. Maria is very friendly. Call ahead to have her save you seats and to make sure she is open.

My family and I stooped by exactly 8 minutes before Maria had to close and rush to an appointment. She was kind enough to serve us the best pasta in this town that she made herself. She is a very sweet person and a very good cook. This is how all restaurants should be. Thank you so much Maria!

Our family of four was looking for a change of pace from tapas having already had lunch at Los diamantes. We arrived a little before 9 p.m. And two of Maria's dishes were already gone. She only cooks so many servings and once they're gone they're gone. We had meatballs for one dish and chicken and rice for the other.... More

From our very mixed experiences in Granada's restaurants, this is one I would recommend without second thoughts. Viva Maria is an Italian restaurant with a lot of personality. It is run by Maria, the Italian cook, who has an open kitchen and displays all things she has prepared for the day at the restaurant’s big glass window. Maria has no... More

We came to Viva Maria to find Maria as kind and welcoming as people had written. We were less keen on the food, it was very heavy and creamy - our children wouldn't eat any of the food we ordered. We had a great glass of Italian wine though!
