It is in a unique and warm atmosphere that we enter this Italian restaurant in the heart of Old St. John. The owners, André Thériault and Luc Landry welcome you with open arms. Whether it's the view, the enchanting decor, the gourmet smells that float in the air, the flavors, the colors, a large selection of beers and wines and the diversity of dishes on the menu, all your senses will be stimulated!
With 35 years of experience in the restaurant business, André and Luc know how to receive you. After selling the restaurant Mamma Mia they fall in love with the building where they are currently located. Its location, a bright room, high ceilings and an irresistible brick wall charmed them instantly. Ten years have passed since the opening. In this extraordinary restaurant located on Richelieu Street in Old St. John, we suggest a fresh cuisine with Italian inspirations, prepared from quality food. The presentations are breathtaking and the culinary ingenuity found there makes us travel without having to leave our seat. When you learn that chefs are native Quebeckers, you still wonder if there is Italian blood flowing in their veins!
Having a particular love for the arts, the owners leave a large place to the works of the artists of the region. We discover with astonishment the hood of a Citroën painted by the artist Laurent Viens, a complete wall where painters can exhibit their paintings. They are regularly changed to optimize the visibility of each artist. In addition, Marie Dubuc, well-known lamp artist in the region, exhibits her lamps at all times.
Enjoying a courteous and attentive service, you are invited to come for a drink with friends, a meal in "gang", dinner with the family, or spend the evening with lovers. Viva Pasta also offers a unique menu for children. The dynamic team of 14 employees will make you live a VIVA experience! Gourmet know-how, a personalized approach and a constantly renewed menu leave you with the desire to come back!
