We enjoyed a lovely family dinner here. The kids loved their very own pizzas just the way they liked them. The service was good, the atmosphere pleasant and the food good value.

Even though ive read many bad reviews all over social media i thought ill give this place a go. Bad mistake. Pizza was horrid, even a frozen home brand would be better. And the place is a filthy dump.

Viva Italia is family run and owned business. Since taking over in 2010 we have introduced some new and exciting changes that make Viva Italia the most family friendly, value for money restaurant in the Bay. The well established restaurant is continually striving to improve with renovations to the building and to the menu. We offer a broad menu that includes locally caught seafood. Located on the Esplanade, our Al Fresco dining area provides stunning views over the Bay. Our Head Chef and his team are regularly adding new flavours to the menu including a range of hand made pastas. Our wait staff, strive to give you the best customer service. Viva Italia still has the best value lunch in the Bay. The Lunch Special is available Monday to Friday and represents excellent value for money with light lunches from just $9.90. We look forward to serving you soon.
