La Vita Viva first opened its doors in 2002 and has been providing tasty Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere ever since! Located in the small village of Mid Calder and hidden behind The Tapshop, La Vita Viva has a real 'family feel'. We are family owned and are extremely proud of this. We provide delicious authentic Italian food, freshly made to order, all at reasonable prices. Fully licensed and able to provide private dining and hire for a range of special occasions! We provide an eat in, takeaway and delivery service. Set menus can also be designed for large bookings.We look forward to welcoming you at our restaurant soon!

“My husband and I recently held our wedding reception at la vitas and the tap shopand had the best time of our lives! Staff were super friendly and the atmosphere was very relaxed. Everybody loved the food and we danced and sang until the small hours! Can't recommend this venue enough for an intimate, special occasion. Special shout out to Claudia for supporting me through all the organisation! We will be back!”
