Freshly made to order from the finest ingredients and served with enough attention to make you feel special but not enough to intrude on your enjoyment or privacy. All in all one... More

A regular haunt for us as Vivas serve up good quality Italian food at reasonable prices. Service can be a bit slow when busy but the food is consistently good as is the house wine (red).
