Found this place accidentally after our disappointment with what we found at Market Square. Prices are very reasonable and food was delicious and portions generous. Nice furnishings and décor. Friendly staff - Emily, good waitress! Good location on a main street & parking.

By coincidence, I have had occasion to eat at Vivaldi's on three different occasions over the past two months - once for lunch, and twice for dinner. All meals were very tasty and good value for the cost. At lunch, you can order a three course meal for $13.95, and through the week, dinner with warm bread and oil/vinegar, soup,... More

Hi , I apologize sincerely as to what went wrong while you were in our establishment, and also very sorry for not responding sooner as I had a personal emergency. Neither Maria or myself were at the restaurant that night. I do not know which server told you that either one of us were available. If one of us was... More

Don't waste you time or money in this place. There were 3 other tables occupied at 6:30. Service was painfully slow. Food was painfully bad. Lasagne was meat and sauce between layers if pasta. Only cheese was on top. Entire dish was flavorless. Ate less than half and gave up. Washrooms are in the filthy restaurant next door. Server expected... More

We have dined previously and the food and service were fabulous. This time, not so good. The bread was so tough, it wasn't edible. My dinner was a good sized portion but really tasteless. My husband has the tour of Italy and did t even finish half of it because it really wasn't good. What happened? Our waitress, although she... More

The food is good, but the atmosphere is a bit odd, what with Mother Natures next door---and the waitresses have never filled me with confidence. The view to the parking lot and Rothesay is well....not too romantic. But their Lebanese dishes are worth the visit alone

The food was average, but the service and ambiance were poor. The waitress indicated that some things on the menu she had not seen in five years! Numerous items on the menu were not available, and at the same time there were items available that we were not informed about. A very disappointing dinner

The food was average to good but the service was poor. The waitress could not even be bothered to show us to our table and was disinterested to the point of rudeness. I won't be back.

Love their table d'hote -a complete meal for a low price. Great creamy garlic soup, all the Lebanese options are awesome. Watch the meatballs in the spaghetti, once they were not fully cooked. Carrot cake is great, portion size is just right, you never go away overstuffed or hungry.
