The service is very personable and attentive. While the atmosphere is not that of many "larger" pizzerias, the food has been better than many of the "larger" pizzerias. The calzones, chicken parmesan and pizza are great.

Went here with friends, who were hungry enough to actually eat the food. The guy who greeted us had to first put his shirt on. Much of what is listed on the menu, they don't have, period. No gourmet coffees. The desserts are very high priced, and they only had one of them that was listed. The place is not... More

Enjoyed the food. Enjoyed not having a crowd of people around while eating. Nice owners run the restaurant and put time in making there food right. It is the spot to go when wanting to get away from all the hype.

This is a small restaurant right in downtown Palatka. Ring the little ceramic bell at the entrance, loud, so they will know you are there. The menu offered a variety of Italian dishes and pizzas. You can get a calzone, fried, but the baked variety is 30-40 minute wait. The wine selection covered most of the typical choices, but they... More

For our office meeting, more than half of our staff ordered from Viva! Lalia Pizzeria. Unfortunately, the food we received was nothing short of terrible. The majority of us ordered calzones, which arrived swimming in grease, making them inedible) . We also ordered their spinach salads which had entirely way to much vinaigrette already on them, also making them inedible.... More

One of the first places i tried here.... missing a good Italian restaurant so i tried it. i was disappointed to say the least. Ordered the shrimp scampi (or so it was called). The shrimp was almost too tuff to cut with the butter knife supplied (no other knife) and just as hard to chew..... rubber with no flavor. The... More

Nice little restaurant in the heart of town. I visited this place shortly after they opened and I think the waitress was still learning the ropes. The food was good and hot and the toppings were plentiful. I tried the pizza for the first time less than a year ago and it was good, not great. But I didn't have... More

This a small but remarkable Italian restaurant. My husband and I visited on a Tuesday afternoon. I had the soup of the day (Italian wedding) served in a fresh made rosemary and herb bread bowl. Both the soup and the bread bowl were delicious and filling (I took the rest home for dinner!), and the salad served around the bread... More

This is a cool little place with some pretty good food. This place is clean and the staff is very friendly. The owners name is James and he told us about some of his secret recipes. The first time we went they charged for a glass of water. I think the waitress was new and did not know the ropes... More
