Viva Italia has delicious garlic flatbread, penne amitriciano and huge calzones. There was no food leftover. The service was slow and the food took a long time.

Description
We are the only and authentic italian (not chain) restaurant in windsor with authentic italian chefs from naples. Our food is only cooked in the proper napoletan way and we make our fresh pizza from scratch as must to be done and as we do in napoli. Food must to be real and authentic so try us first and than you'll know. I hope to see you soon :) ciao massimo
