Vivo is unassuming from the exterior but warm and friendly inside. The food is served family style, but the menu is far better than 'home cooking'. For example, the sea bass was served with a grilled grapefruit half to be squeezed over the beautifully cooked fish. It was also garnished with sea asparagus - a slightly salty vegetable that was...

You are warmly greeted at the front door, and then you are spoiled, the staff is amazing and obviously love being there. And then the food starts, attention to detail, all made in restaurant, top quality ingredients, I can not even pick a favorite, as it was all so amazing!! The fresh bread, the garlic dip, the caprese salad, fettuccine,... More

Our friends have told us this restaurant was great. Also it has high reviews on trip advisor. I recommend making a reservation through tripadvisor or open table app to ensure you get in. This place is very professional. It has an open concept kitchen where you can see the chef cook your food. It has a lot of wines to... More

My husband and I tried out Vivo Restarante because I like to watch Trip Advisor to search out new places to try. We enjoyed ourselves. very much.. Wilbur (the Manager) made our visit so very pleasant and the food and dessert were amazing.. Thank-you Wilbur and everyone at Vivo for a most enjoyable evening out.

We had been here with a large group but went by ourselves. Firstly don't be alarmed by the prices. The prices all refer to a plate that can be shared by 2-3 people. The waiter will explain this. We found the food excellent and well presented. The Caprese salad we started with was very different from what we had had... More

Vivo is a restaurant not to be missed. Nestled in a residential area, Vivo offers impeccable service, delicious, artfully presented italian food in an upbeat ambiance. Enjoy their many fine wines, perfectly paired with any meal. Seating options include booths, tables, a chefs bar and private dining room. The gnocchi is prepared different than any I've had and is delicious.... More

Vivo is one of those places you would drive right by, located in a strip plaza and not give a second thought to keep going....and the outside might justify that. But once inside, you'll forget where you are. The food is awesome and the chef's table is more like a "chef's bar". The kitchen is fully open and head chef... More

We had a friend of ours recommend this restaurant. The service was excellent, the food was top-notch (probably top 5 of my dining experiences in Edmonton). However, the noise level was quite high in the restaurant that night and was not in line with the rest of the experience. I would recommend that maybe an area could be set aside... More
