Family and I sought Italian food nearby our accommodations. Viva was perfect. We had no problem securing a table, even without a reservation. Our server was johnny-on-the-spot with drink orders and subsequent food service. We ordered two salads and two pasta entrees to share (we were four). The food was excellent. We thought we would have enough left over for a take-away meal, but alas we ate it all.

One recommendation is to please serve the salads first. We did not specify because for us North Americans, that is normal. All the dishes came to the table at the same time. We worked around it. My other comment has to do with the mixed green salad ingredients. It would be helpful to know what those ingredients are ahead of time because not everyone likes peppers in their salads.

Still, I would not let these suggestions deter your visit. It is warm and cozy place to be enjoyed.
