Viva was established in 2008 by Vito La Gioia with the purpose of providing the residents of Leeds with a local Italian restaurant they can be proud of.
The Genuine Italian Cuisine is combined with the old fashioned service to ensure that every customer enjoys an unforgettable dining experience.
Viva Restaurant serves authentic Italian food in a warm and intimate atmosphere. They offer hot and cold starters, a wide variety of pasta dishes, delicious main courses, and a good selection of pizzas.
Vito relies on a great experience in the restaurant sector that started in Italy in the 80’s - he worked with Chef Marco who followed him in Leeds to open the Viva Italia Restaurant located in Bridge End (Leeds city centre).
After being successful with Viva Italia Restaurant, Vito decided to expand with Restaurant Cafe Italia and asked Marco to help him with the new business adventure by applying the same business model that made Viva Italia a well known business.
