Vivo is a 70 seat restaurant providing an intimate, fun atmosphere for lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday. Two courses are available every lunchtime and Monday to Thursday evening until 7pm for just £9.95 And a chef's special menu is also available most weeks. Our A La Carte menu is available every night and is changed twice per year. Our restaurant is family-run and children are very welcome at any time - a children's menu and high chair facilities are available. We also will prepare any vegetarian dish that we have ingredients in stock for and have gluten-free food available too.

I went to Vivo mid-week with work colleagues and it was busy and there was a lovely atmosphere... The staff were amazing, extremely helpful and the food was am-az-ing!!!! Mushroom starter, lovely tender chicken in a delightful white wine creamy sauce, followed by an Irish Coffee and accompanied by lots of wine!! A fabulous night! Thank you x

Booked a table for Mum's birthday. She didn't know I was going to be there but the staff did and they played along which helped with the surprise. The food was delicious and when dessert came out, Mum's had a candle in it. We never asked them to do that and it is little things like this that make you... More

Booked a surprise meal for Mum's birthday. The staff played along, brought lovely food, put a candle in Mum's Creme Brulee and sang happy birthday to her. Good food, service and heart. We will be going again

I visited Vivo with a group of girlfriends on Saturday and we had the best evening, they were really busy when we arrived but still looked after us really well. We were made to feel welcome on arrival and felt that nothing was too much trouble for them. The waitress and waiter who served us where so much fun and... More

My old boss who is Italian highly recommended this place and after going there for a work do a few years back I have returned several times and always left satisfied. Fabulous food, good service, and general good vibe in the restaurant. I can't comment so much on the variety of the menu because the Filleto Rossini (fillet steak and... More

Really, really good food. The gnocchi in particular was unbeatable. Reasonable prices too. All this and handy parking right outside. We'll definitely be back.

Ok fast food. Certainly not worth what charged. Service very poor. Pal Michael much better so won't b returning. Didn't tealise the olives and bread brought out every time without asking were 5 pounds on bill!

Luigi F, Manager at VIVO, responded to this review

Whilst we do not wish to offend anyone, this review is factually inaccurate, probably vexatious and quite possibly suspicious. It is factually inaccurate in that we do not charge £5 for bread and olives (£3.95) and we would never supply charged dishes without having them requested - our system just cannot operate like that. We have no recollection nor record... More
