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

Visited this restaurant recently on hearing about the wood-fired pizza oven (I'm a bit of a pizza fan), so was very keen to see what they were like. A could not resist a starter (at the risk of losing stomach space for pizza!) The starter was good, squid, which tasked nicely smoky from the charring and which was complemented by... More

Having eaten here before and not given this restaurant a glowing report due to bad service on the night I must say what a difference. This evening both the food and the service were up to scratch and a great evening was had by all four of us. We'll done Luigi and his staff. Will come again.

The food here was amazing, starters were lovely (we both had the goats cheese). My steak was cooked to perfection and the tomato sauce with my girlfriends gnocchi was rich and very flavoursome. When I go out for dinner I don't like to be rushed like some places, they just want you in, out, money in the till, but waiting... More
