My stomach was upset a little and I wanted some cheese and crackers. My husband went down and paid $20 for a cheese tray that was a 1 Star menu value. The cheese selection was limited and didn't taste well and the crackers and olives where nasty. Next time I will bring my own just in case.

I came in mid afternoon, rushing to a meeting, it was deserted. I was starving and just needed a quick bite. The waiter was very timely, exceedingly pleasant, and I had a great, quick salad in a beautiful place all to my self and really enjoyed it. He even gave me a doggy bag with a smile.

We live nearby and had been to GrillFire before, but were in the mood for Italian so we thought we would give Vivo a try. We were pleasantly surprised with the food, service and atmosphere. We had an appetizer of caprese with a soft shell crab on top. It was very tasty. Then we had a side house salad to... More

Visited here for the first time on Friday night. Very impressed with atmosphere and service. Waitress was most attentive and friendly. All of our entrees were exceptional. Will definitely return here.

We really like Grille Fire and decided after a year to give Vivo a try. Big mistake. The calamari was so over cooked, the rings were stiff and the tentacles tasteless and shriveled up. Our starter plates weren't cleared but the mains arrived--the kitchen staff cleared the plates and brought fresh flatware--had not seen the waiter in a while. The... More

I celebrated my birthday at Vivo last night and we had a fabulous meal and enjoyed great service and attention. Even the picky eaters in our party enjoyed their dinners. They brought out a dessert sampler in honor of my birthday which was the perfect ending. The atmosphere was great as well.

So to get away a bit from Arundel Mills and the casino, slide on down to Vivo. The food is so good and very fresh, the wine selection is really good for your everyday wine drinker and they even have a bar with TVs for you sports fans out there. The bread is amazing and the pizza was so good.... More

I always eat at this restaurant when I am in town and I have yet to be disappointed. Some of the dishes are a little overpriced, but overall the food is worth it. They have excellent seasonal cocktails and a nice selection of wine. Sometimes the service can be a bit slow, which is the only reason I didn't give... More

Wine was good. Atmosphere good. Pasta was awful! Had whole wheat pasta with clams and the pasta was so pasty I could've made glue. Baby clams were fine but the pasta was disgusting. What makes this review so bad is when the server asked me how my pasta was and I explained to him how awful it was... He did... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant for the first time yesterday and we absolutely loved it. This restaurant is an Italian restaurant, with a great wine bar/trattoria feel to it. It looks beautiful on the inside, and there is outdoor seating, which overlooks a nice fountain and some really nice landscaping. The waitress we had was one of... More
