Viva Italiano distributes menus with coupons throughout town. However, they won't exactly honor the offer on the coupon. There is one coupon for a $10.00 pizza on pick-up only which is a good value. But beware, the other coupons make the restaurant appear to be a good value, but when we tried to dine in, the staff posts a sign and states the offers will not be honored for dining in. This is fine if you planned a take home meal. However, like many of us who travel, dining out with friends or family is a necessity, unless you want to eat in your hotel room.\r
Keep in mind you are near the ocean, so forget the coupons meant to draw you in, because at this restaurants regular prices, why not treat yourself to a finer dining experience. Just 2 miles south you will find restaurants overlooking the ocean, a more relaxing environment, on some evenings even live music and dancing; for the price of probably around $3 more per person. You at lease owe it to yourself to drive by and compare the difference.\r
I used to be a regular patron of Viva, but after recent experiences and a lack of response from the manager/owner, I have never returned. I have never had a bad experience at the restaurants on Rockaway Beach. After all, isn't this what these forums are about, finding recommended restaurants and avoiding others.\r
Have a great visit in the bay area.
Pros: Will honor one $10.00 pizza coupon offer.
Cons: No longer honors coupons for dining in, although not mentioned on coupon.
