Food and service are outstanding! My favorite restaurant! Great for a romantic dinner or dinner with friends. Service is by far the best around. Don't miss out, this place is amazing!

Excellent food. Accommodating chef. Waitstaff are from an alternate universe or a better era. I can't express how appreciative I am of top flight service. It is European in caliber. The waiter is there for YOU; not as a glorified table turnover traffic cop; not as an unctuous naïf who bores you with the life story of the salmon you're... More

Sempre Vivolo is always superb. Vincenzo Vivolo and his son Carmine run a truly outstanding establishment. The service is impeccable. too. Waiters like Steve and Peter have been there forever, and they know their craft. Don't miss the asparagus au gratin appetizer if it's available on your visit. The fish is fresh and wonderful. The meat sauce is to die... More

This was recommended by some business partners locally. It was excellent. From the appetizers, to the entrees, to the desserts everything I had was tremendous. The pollo mona lisa is oozing with cheese.

This is a family owned and operated good example of what an Italian restaurant should be. The service is impeccable, forgiving and pleasant. We began with outstanding fresh rolls and hearty cocktails and then moved on to shellfish and pasta for two guests and the swordfish special with fresh clams and a hearty tomato wine sauce for me. The fish... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants for both lunch and dinner. The food is very good, the veal is incredibly tender and flavorful, and the service is always excellent. The arugula salad is delightful and the side dishes are usually very good as well--one night the chef made a delicious cabbage side dish, and we could not believe we... More

Elegant, distinctive and wonderful! Great for business dinners. We didn't make a reservation but ate early. We were graciously received by owner and immediately seated. The dark cherry wainscoting and the etched glass room dividers set the rooms apart and gave a touch of elegance to the dining area. All tables were set with silver, linen and a fresh rose.... More

Sempre Vivolo is a bit of a throw back - jackets required for male dinners, valet parking and a "reservations required" policy. However, the food is excellent as is the ambiance and service! We started at the very comfortable bar for cocktails -where we found a great variety in drinks with fine wines offered by the glass, or more extensively... More

We were a party of four on a recent Saturday night. I was a little concerned that this would be a stuffy restaurant catering mainly to regular customers. However, our experience was great from cocktails at the bar, through dinner. The bartender was friendly and made great drinks. He personally showed us to the dining room where we were given... More
