Visited here on a Friday evening in December, we had not booked but they managed to squeeze us in after about a 15 minute wait. The food and wine were amazing, the staff friendly and the atmosphere was fab. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Reasonably priced meal. Enjoy.

Staying at The Cosmopolitan Hotel and the s restaurant was recommended by a member of staff. Quite right it was lovely. The staff here are really friendly and helpful. My cousin and I both had lasagna which was gorgeous she had a lovely sakad with hers which she raved about. I had chips. Absolutely loved it, would definitely recommend.

Staff struggled to understand one of our party's gluten free allergy. Order (starter) came 1 HR after ordering . Got to say the food was nice but the whole... More

From the minute we entered the restaurant until the minute we left we were treated extremely well. The atmosphere was so relaxing as we had time for a chat before ordering our drinks, and again before ordering our food. Having lived in Italy for 3½ years, Viva certainly has that authentic Italian restaurant, and indeed I soon fell into conversing... More

I've here long time ago to celebrate a birthday. There's nothing outstanding in this restaurant. Just a normal italian restaurant where the food has an acceptable quality, nothing else.

Actually stumbled across this restaurant in search of another which we failed to find and so glad we did! Despite being a Saturday (and they we're rammed ) they told us "no problem somehow we will fit you in" they provided us with seating so we could have a drink whilst we waited and even gave us some beautiful tomato...
