Trying to find somewhere different to go to eat in Newcastle and a friend was surprised to find out that I had never been here before. Decided to give it a try. Loved the look and feel of the place as soon as we arrived....More

Squid then steak, both cooked perfectly. This restaurant does the simple Italian dishes that make you feel like you are in Italy. The ambience and service is lovely. A faultless experience that has the reassurance of being consistently excellent.

Just been for restaurant week in Newcastle. 3 course for £15 each is great value. I had terrine, sea bass and tiramisu. Can't complain at all because it was superb. Will definitely return.

We just came to try their Aperol Spritz. Won't be out of place in a Rimini beach bar, a Milano bar in Navigli or on the seaside in Napoli. Next time we'll come for dinner.

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.
