We were the only people in the restaurant but that was fine as we prefer to eat early and quietly. The staff were very attentive and helpful, after ordering the food and drinks they arrived very quickly and very well presented.

We had chicken wrap (#20) and a pita (#17 ) and it was really good, good enough that we came back the next day and ordered the exact same thing! They make their own wrap and pita bread...very good and fresh. Both times our waiters were really nice, especially Georgiana (?) called friends and offered us to use her mobile... More

Two of us had spaghetti dishes, one a burger, the other a kebab. Only the kebab eater thought the food was anything but average. The spaghetti could have come from the supermarket - the burger and chips certainly did. Odd mixture on the menu and very little to that was Italian. Front of house certainly weren't.

We went there since it was the only restaurant open on the 1st of January. It is called "Viva Italia", but as italians we hardly found any Italian evidence. Dishes from around the world, staff which poorly speaks english, expensive.

Arrived late for lunch, we were very hungry and asked for fast delivery of food. We even had the grilled chicken all of us to minimize time for staff. Food was excellent and delivered very fast by serviceminded staff. Resonable prizing (for Norway) adds to our satisfaction.

We arrived there cold and tired after snowshoeing. The waitress offered tea and that sweet tea with lemon was the best thing I've tasted in ages. The food came quickly - not particularly italian, but tasty and the desserts were nice too.
