Aaron the Head Chef id Greek Cypriote, not Italian, Zen the waiter is Albainian not Italian and this Restaurant is situated in Leeds and not Italy but it does not stop it being one of the best Italian restaurants outside Italy that I have ever been to.
Its exactly what you want from an Italian restaurant, relaxed atmosphere and delicious food in an intermit setting.
We ordered off menu which isn't an Issue for the very talented head chef and he made us delicious vegetarian calzones, with perfectly sautéed vegetables (artichoke, broccoli, green beans and spinach). Served with a simple yet tasty tomatoe & basil sauce. Fresh (not dried) parmesan optional.
As with any good Mediterranean place they made a huge fuss of my 6 year old daughter and we received as good a welcome as anywhere (despite not going in for 2 years).
Viva has stolen the crown from Salvos and is now Leeds BEST Italian.
