Decided to go here on the strength of previous reviews. Not disappointed at all. Good atmosphere, good food and drink, reasonable prices, what more do you want? Steaks cooked to perfection and varied menu. If we were locals we would return.

Went for a family evening meal while staying at Darwin Country Park. The food and service are excellent and the menu has a great choice. The atmosphere is typical Italian but surrounded in North Derbyshire, excellent combination. I would like to thank all the staff for making our stay a very welcome one and I would certainly recommend Viva to... More

We visited this restaurant last night and the service was very poor. Firstly we sat down with a menu and it took ages for them to ask what drinks we would like, we had already decided what we were having to eat before we were asked what we would like to drink. There was a 45 min wait between starter... More

Another fantastic meal here, was a little disappointed having to pre order for a table of 10 as I don't personally think this is considered a large table as I've worked in the restaurant industry but with it being the weekend before valentines I can understand why. I like to see what I fancy on the day than have to... More

We had a Valentines Day meal for 4 in the evening at this restaurant and our overall experience was very good. Food was really good and they have an extensive menu. Seafood dishes were great and the steaks were excellent. Staff were friendly but could be more attentive and service was a little slow. However, when one of our party... More
