This was my 2nd visit in two weeks and 2nd time round was just as good as the 1st. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Food is excellent as are the wine choices ( house wine on both visits ) and the Italian lesson over the speakers when I visited the bathroom was a lovely touch. I will definitely be back.
A great venue for lunch. Delicious food and friendly service. Never hurried to finish and return the table.
Always consistently good. My favourite restaurant
Excellent food and very friendly and helpful staff.

Staff were welcoming, pleasant and polite, premises stylish, food was really good and the house wine great value! Had a really nice dining experience and I’ll definitely be back!
Very friendly and efficient.
Viva is a very rare Italian restaurant, why? Because it never disappoints. The food is great and the service is excellent. Try the polpette de la casa or the penne arribiata, nowhere does them better.
As always delicious food, great friendly service and great deals
Our favourite Italian restaurant, staff,and management work well in providing an excellent dining experience. Every time we go, we know exactly what we are going to get, great food every time. No hesitation in recommending Vivas to friends.
Great food as always👌
This is often my ‘go-to’ city restaurant. And this visit, a Christmas lunch, was once again memorable for the fantastic food and terrific service. The food is always great at Viva and our mains and starters didn’t disappoint. A special mention for the staff whose good humour and attentive service to the four of us contributed to a fantastic seasonal atmosphere. Look forward to our next visit.
As always a great dining experience
Had a late lunch with a griend at around 3.00 pm (weekday). A great time to dine. Wasn't very busy at this time. Service was excellent and food was fantastic. Have visited Riva on numerous occasions and will continue to do so whenever I'm in Glasgow. Thoroughly recommend.
Lovely evening. Great food and very good staff.
We had a lovely family lunch on Saturday 23rd November. Sttaff were freindly and service was excellent. The food was served promptly and was delicious (especially the chips) and everyone cleared their plate. Choice was good for both food and drinks and overall the meal was excellent value for money. We would definitely come back for more. There was a nice atmosphere in the restuarant which was very busy but we were able to have a conversation without too much extraneous noise. Overall a very nice experience.
Lovely meal and fab service
