  • Lexi SLike most of Ithaca, Viva has quite a few vegan/veg options yet doesn't have to sacrifice good taste just to achieve it. I always get the taqueria super burrito, which is enormous + filling + amazing.

    55555 by Lexi S

    55555 by James


  • Mick B.No one's looking for healthy Mexican cuisine, but this forgettable dump is begging to differ. Another tip for this place said "good if you're not an asshole." 9/10 patrons must be assholes then.
