Fine food and wine, but the service was patchy

We ate here as a party of 4 to celebrate my birthday. We all had the excellent tasting menu with wine flight. Lovely delicate Italian food paired with gently flavoured wines (no heavy Shiraz or Chardonnay here). Each wine was explained in detail by a lovely Italian wine specialist. The service... read more

Last year me and my husband were in KL, we decided to invite our friends for quiet dinner. We did not reserve any table, just walked in. Me and my husband arrived first, another two couples joined us later. The manager gave us the best table. We sat outside. Service was very fast and professional. We had diner with wine.... More

Decent pasta, everything else is hit or miss. They had a pretty good squid ink risotto with seafood on time. Ordered it on another trip back, and a totally different dish came out. this one was devoid of any taste whatsover. Completely dry and nothing like the dish previously (which was taken off the menu). Told the chef (who looked... More

Italian in 30 degree heat and not in Italy isn't a great idea unless it is outstanding and this place is just very average. I chose the veal which should dissolve in ones mouth but instead it was overcooked and a poor cut. The waiter simply had no idea what he was doing since they don't deal with alcohol. There... More

Totally prefer the sister restaurant around the corner, Neroteca for consistency of food. Very underwhelmed by what I was served here. The desserts in particular. Not impressive

Had a great time again, after being away for almost ten years, at Nero vivo. The food was tasteful, the wine was better than we hoped for and the staff made our evening very enjoyable. Even though we missed the former Italian owner at times, the service and ways of the staff was delightful. Being half Thai, half Javanese and... More

Food overall ok but several mistakes They forgot the ham on the pizza, they gave us the wrong check, service was pretty slow despite restaurant being not crowded. Not terrible but clearly not a good experience overall.

A cozy Italian restaurant with nice setting in an old bungalow. We like the sea antipasto platter and black Angus Tagliata. Scottish salmon is juicy with nice crispy skin. And the Riviera linguine came with huge prawn - we love the pasta but not the prawn - too tough the meat. A little up market price but overall service is... More

I brought a business associate to Nerovivo for dinner. We chose the Festival menu with wine pairing during the Malaysian Gourmet Festival 2015. Service was ok and responsive. The festival menu with wine pairing was very attractively priced. The food was competently executed but average tasting.
