We normally try to start each Big Deal with a pun or cheesy joke.
For this offer, we thought we would just let Viva Ristorante’s customers speak for themselves.
This review was left on the restaurant’s 5pm page earlier this week:
‘Great as always. Exceptional value and great food. We have been here many times over the years and never have we been disappointed. The 5pm deal makes even better value.’ Rating 4.6/5
Viva Ristorante’s 5pm page has no shortage of similar reviews. ‘Excellent’ service, ‘excellent’ value and ‘delicious’ food are recurring themes.
Today’s Big Deal on a pizza or pasta main course for two is a perfect way to see how Viva Ristorante makes so many customers happy.
City centre Italian
A short walk from Glasgow’s railway stations and city centre theatres, Viva Ristorante is a welcoming Italian restaurant.
It looks exactly the way an Italian restaurant should: warm terracotta colours, dark wood and candle-lit tables.
A la carte
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 eighteen different pizzas and over twenty pasta dishes to choose from, the most difficult part of your meal will be deciding which delicious dish to eat.
We like the look of the Giuseppe pizza which is topped with marinated beef strips, tomato, mozzarella, fresh chillies, onion and mushroom but could also be tempted by the classic Puttanesca, topped with anchovies, capers, tomato, mozzarella and black olives.
From the pasta dishes, we predict that the spaghetti carbonara, made with bacon, egg, Parmesan, garlic and cream sauce will be popular.
However, we reckon that the lasagne or meatball fusilli might run it close.
There is a £3 supplement on all ravioli and seafood dishes. Gluten-free dishes are available.
Popular Italian restaurant
Ideal for a night out; a pre-cinema bite to eat or a Saturday shopping trip lunch, this offer is with one of 5pm Dining’s most popular venues.
At the time of writing, over a thousand customers have given Viva on Bothwell Street a combined rating of 4.3/5.
