As far as stocking filler gifts go, a slap-up Italian meal is a pretty darn good one.
And, given its rave TripAdvisor reviews, Viva Ristorante is a favourite spot for enjoying quality Mediterranean nosh.
So why not give someone a tasty treat to look forward to in the new year with today’s Big Deal on a pizza or pasta main for two, available until late March?
It goes without saying that this would make a great Secret Santa gift as well.
Rustic city centre restaurant
Located on Bothwell Street, a short walk from Glasgow Central Station, Viva Ristorante is a very welcoming dining spot.
With its warm terracotta colours, dark wood and candlelit tables, diners soon feel as if they have been spirited away to a rustic restaurant in Italy. Perfect for a winter dinner, then.
Viva is also a good pre-theatre option, as it’s handy for Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, the King’s Theatre and the Old Fruitmarket.
Meal for two
Available seven days a week, this offer is for two people to each enjoy a pizza or pasta dish from the a la carte menu at Viva Ristorante.
With plenty of pizza and pasta dishes to choose from, the trickiest part of your meal might be choosing from the tempting creations on offer.
Highlights include the Giuseppe pizza which is topped with marinated beef strips, tomato, mozzarella, fresh chillies, onion and mushroom. Also tempting is the classic Puttanesca, topped with anchovies, capers, tomato, mozzarella and black olives.
Pasta options include favourites such as spaghetti carbonara, made with bacon, egg, Parmesan, garlic and cream, alongside robust classics such as lasagne al forno and fusilli con polpette (veal meatballs).
There will be a £3 supplement payable on ravioli dishes, gamberoni dishes, prosciutto di Parma pizza and spaghetti seafood. Gluten-free dishes are available.
Treat someone to a classic Glasgow Italian
Perfect for a reliable night out on the town, pre-show meal or Saturday shopping lunch, this Big Deal on a meal for two would make a fab Christmas gift for someone.
Plus as it’s available seven days a week until March, they will have plenty of chances to enjoy it.
Pizza? Pasta? Your choice, but Viva has to be the place.
