We came to the viva restaurant for an early dinner. While we were waiting for our friends, we were served some complimentary bruschettas, served with olives, which were very nice indeed.

The best service around, all the staff were great and really friendly. The food was lovely, Had the garlic bread to start with calzone and a fudge cake for dessert, with a nice bottle of red to wash it down. Came to less than £50 for me and my girlfriend.

We stop here quite often for lunch for two on Saturdays. £35 will normally get us two courses, drinks, a shared dessert, and coffee. The food is authentic, tasty, and fresh. The owner is normally on duty, service is quick and staff are attentive. The location just off Leeds Bridge is handy for parking in the old Tetleys car park... More

The food was excellent, the atmosphere convivial and the service struck right balance between being attentive and letting you relax and enjoy. The four cleared plates told the story at the end of...

We called in here on the off chance. We only had a small amount of time so it was only starters that we had, but wished we could have stayed for more! It's simple food done really well. The breads were delicious and the garlic mushrooms delightful. Service was friendly and efficient and the whole restaurant had a family feel.... More
