It's an all rounder. Relaxed dining with a quality feel. Great place to visit for lunch or dinner. Very well looked after by front of house. The maiale grilled pork was a highlight. The Nocellara Olives were an added bonus. Would definitely come here again.

Italian at heart, the mood at the Quayside Caffe Vivo is lively, the style relaxed. Cafe by day, simple supper place at night, it's food is honest, joyful and full of sunshine.
