About our Restaurant

Italian Pizzeria and Family Restaurant.

Nestled in the heart of Irene is a quaint Italian family restaurant called Viva Vita. Chef Owner Eduard Gazendam brings a variety of authentic European and local style Italian dishes.  An elder, wise Italian women said that the word “restaurant” means, “to restore, rejuvenate, and relax." This is the mission statement of our restaurant where we welcome young and old to come and enjoy a relaxing evening with good food and friendly service.

Eduard is a highly experienced and well-travelled chef with more than 10 years’ experience. When he took over Viva Vita in 2012 he wanted to share his passion for food with families and friends.

We Love What We Do

Signature dishes include the Porcini & Seafood Risotto, wood fire pizza’s, fresh pastas and our famous Nutella pizza. All dishes are prepared fresh daily with best local and imported ingredients. We also boast a variety of meat and fish dishes and this is complimented by an extensive wine list.

A Tuscan style courtyard and fountains, with cosy fireplaces in winter adds to the beautiful atmosphere that our customers are accustomed to.  We have a lovely outside play area for children so that both parents and kids can enjoy a great atmosphere while enjoying good food.

We also do private and corporate functions with customised menus to suit your needs.
