A group of 15 friends had an extended lunch at Viva Vita today. We would like to thank the restaurant and particularly Bongi for their outstanding service and excellent food. Most significantly was the affectionate rapport between Bongi and the 'gogos' who were our guests on this memorable occasion. Bongi - you are a star. Thank you Viva Vita, for... More

Made a booking for our birthday party for 30 people well in advance. Viva Vita still contacted me regarding the menu. When I wanted to confirm our numbers 5 days before the party, I was told 'your booking was scratched out, because the venue is booked out.' No communication on the cancellation to me?? Not so easy to find a... More

You have to try the pizza at this place, it is great!! What really makes me go back to a restaurant, is their service. We had a fabulous waitress serving our kitchen tea party. She alone will make me go back again.

This has to be my favorite restaurant in centurion as it is literally a minute away from my home. I come her very often and everytime I go it is great. The waiters are friendly and the food is way better.

We had dinner here on a warm spring evening wanting to get away from the hustle and bustle of the usual busy areas. this restaurant is perfectly positioned for this. The quiet setting is perfect together with the meal made this an enjoyable evening altogether. The wine list is compiled for all tastes as is the food menu. Ours was... More

Sadly this restaurant will not see me again. The setting lacks comfort & warmth (it's quite cold & stark) The pizza is good but overpriced, it's a normal pizza not speciality so you could just as well go to Pizza Hut. The menu appears to be crafted to increase your bill because everything is an extra; so if you're feeling... More

Good allrounder for pasta's, pizza, grills and seafood. Service is good, with nice outside area with kids play area. Good selection of wine. Seating is not cramped.

Been here for drinks/coffee and quick lunches - mostly just a shared pizza or focaccia. Service is very slow at times and it really depends on the person serving you. The food is good but pretty expensive for what you get. Huge restaurant, does get pretty busy with office parties at times. Drinks are pretty expensive. Nice for a lunch,... More

We usually go once a month to Viva Vita, while usually full, we have been on occasions when it has been completely empty. All except once have we been able to get a table. The food is good, especially the Pizza which is what I usually have, and the Pasta's are also pretty good as well. All in all, if... More
