Stopped in this great restaurant and had a pizza that has to be one of the best that I have had. The service is friendly and the restaurant itself is large, airy and plenty of character. Go for it.

Interior is really good, staff are very friendly and attentive. The food was tasty, but nothing out of this world - also it arrived super quick, which made us wonder how much actual preparation went into it after we placed our orders. Portions are rather on the bigger side, we were all quite stuffed.

We went for lunch. Best basil, tomato and mozarella salad I had in a long time. Main course penne arabiata - delicious with fantastic sauce. The whole experience was excellent - nice decor, friendly and efficient staff, great food.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely meal last night, and are regular visitors to Viva as it is one of our favourites. We had an itison deal, two pizza or pasta dishes for £9, which was great value for money. The food is always fab, the service is quick and the staff are friendly.

Went recently with work for lunch, clean, smart premises, good food and service. I had seafood spaghetti and it was excellent. Plentiful amounts of mussels, prawns and squid. The tomato based sauce was decent also. Washed down with cold pint of San Miguel. I ate off the full menu but there is a cheaper lunch menu available. Pleasant dining experience.
