Went here tonight with my partner and LOVED it!!! We were both pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food and likewise the lack of people. There was one other table as well as a party going on. We both had a chicken dish and we were both full and happy upon leaving. The only disappointment was that they were... More

If you get a coupon on Groupon for $50 worth of food at Vive Bene Restaurant for $25 sounds like a deal and it is, but......If you go with friends and they have the same coupon don't expect to sit with them even though it does not specify on the coupon that only one coupon is allowed per table.

The chicken parm was... More

My wife,my mother-in-law and Myself went for lunch around 11:30 am on a Tuesday. We were the only ones there. We handed our groupon ticket to the hostess and she said she would have to show it to the manager. Before going we looked at all the restrictions and it said not valid during happy hour or when the DCU... More

Had lunch here on Wednesday 8/5/14 and the food was awful. We got sick after eating here. Was told by a local resident that it was good!

From the glass of wine, to the calamari appetizer to the lobster they were 86 which in restaurant lingo means they were out of it! The poor waitress, I actually felt embarrassed for her. The salmon caesar salad ordered cost the same as an entree. We were there to celebrate my daughter's birthday, dessert was brought to wrong daughter. Will... More

When I make reservations, I expect one of the better tables, Reservations made, but not needed...the place was no where near capacity, yet the hostess did not seat us at of one tables with the beautiful cobalt blue lamps and red roses. What the heck? Excellent cosmopolitan, made just the way I asked. The description of the calamari appetizer stated... More

I was in the Worcester area with a friend and she suggested Viva Bene because she knew the chef and said the food was very good. That was an understatement. We had grilled portobello mushrooms with asparagus to start. They were perfectly seasoned and pleasantly presented. My friend had a Caesar salad and I had the Mediterranean salad with a... More

After a night of singing and dancing at a concert, this was the place to go to recover. Their appetizers were yummy, and the burgers were even better. Make sure you try to special burgers in the back of the menu!

Five of us had dinner on a Sat night. I had a Groupon. Even though the Groupon said it would not be honored when there was a function going on at the DCU Center nearby, and the circus was there, I called and they said it was fine to use it this night. They had a great, very reasonably priced... More
