My first visit to VIVA, it won’t be my last. Enjoyed my empanada and soup. Had a nice cup of Hot tea (they have a TEA menu)after my meal with my homemade cupcake. Delicious!

We stopped in for an early dinner and were very impressed. The service was outstanding and the food was even better! The restaurant itself is nothing fancy, but the food makes up for it. There are vegetarian options. This place is worth the stop!

I've had their food twice- once was pickup, and the second time was eating in. It was great both times! I have nothing bad to say personally, and I'll most likely be back again. Loved the (vegetarian) empanadas.
