My husband and I arrived without a booking which was not received very well. I wouldn't have minded but at the time there was one other table! After being seating we ordered drinks. My husband ordered a non alcoholic beer and was given a totally different brand with no apology! After our order was taken a few more tables arrived... More

I had a lovely meal last night with friends. I wish I had read the reviews first as I ordered the ravioli spinach and ricotta which was lovely but not enough for a main meal I would suggest a side salad or a couple of slices of garlic bread included or even just more pasta! luckily my friends all orderd...

We dined here for my sister in laws birthday on a Monday evening. The restaurant is nicely presented and reviews are rather good so was expecting great things. On arrival we were stood in the doorway for 2 minutes as no sign of any staff. No apology issued for the wait when taken to the table. They offer a very... More

It had been a year since we last visited Vivo and I have to say the food overall was excellent but service has some issues. We ordered a drink (eventually - after a ten minute wait!) after another fifteen minutes we had to ask again for the drinks. Not a great start but we put it down to being busy.... More

Only been a couple of times but both times the staff have been friendly and the food absolutely stunning. Considering the standard of the food the prices are very reasonable. We will definitely be coming back.

This was my first visit to this restaurant as I am new to this area. My first impression was how well designed the restaurant is. Service was exceptional and the cocktails was delightful. The food was like being in Italy perfect and not too much so I could fit another course in, I would recommend the Fillet Rossini as the... More

Dear Madam. I am sorry that our normal size of portion is not sufficient for you. I am sorry but I have to take exception however to your review. You ordered a single course of Penne Arrabbiata and a glass of wine, you did not tell us that you were vegetarian and on receiving the dish you did not tell... More

HI, we visited Vivo yesterday for a special birthday, upon arriving we found the Restaurant a pleasant enough place we were shown to our table which was right in the corner, we got our drinks and the menu, after choosing our starters and main courses we waited with anticipation, the starter arrived after about 25 mins (this was too long)...

Dear Customer, on this occasion I am afraid that we just have to hold our hands up and admit that we have let ourselves down. The prime issue was that it seems two of or staff misunderstood which tables they were covering - and that is in the end my fault. Then when something goes wrong - it all goes... More
