Super food, lovely atmosphere and excellent service - all at a good price. A gem of a restaurant right on our doorstep. No hesitation at recommending Viva to friends, visitors. We eat there often and always thoroughly enjoy our evenings.

Visited viva several times now and the food is fine if stay with pasta, does fall down slightly if straying into other types. Service is quick and pleasant and prices reasonable for what you get.
