A group of us were here the other night for a meal, we used the set menu for ease as it was a work function. Lovely place and nice staff. Food was also very nice and didn't take long to be served. Would definately return.

Italian at heart, the mood at the Quayside Caffe Vivo is lively, the style relaxed. Cafe by day, simple supper place at night, it's food is honest, joyful and full of sunshine.
