Wonderful Restaurant on the Upper East Side.

We were a party of six on a Sat. night. The restaurant is small and it was busy. The serve was wonderful, the food was out of the world and the pricing was very reasonable. We did not eat from the Prix Fixe menu as we had reservations for 7PM and Prix Fixe was over by than. But pricing was... read more

We were a party of six and our seating was close. Apps were wonderful! The prosciutto and mango was excellent as was the buffalo mozzarella and the eggplant rollatini! Wine list was well priced with a nice selection of reds and whites. We had several of the main course specials and all were good - homemade pasta was delicious! And... More

Vivolo is a small, sophisticated restaurant that will appeal to you if as a couple or small group you want great food, friendly service, and that ability to have a conversation without having to shout. The prix fixe menu at $30 is a particularly good value, but overall the restaurant offers a great selection of Italian seafood and traditional choices,... More

This restaurant was selected for a family reunion of 10 people because it was intimate, a bit upscale, and priced right. We had an early seating to obtain the price fixed menu which was only available until 6:30 p.m The cost was $30 for three courses. We were seated in the enclosed front porch which, for all intents and purposes,... More

We have been there many times and are always pleased with both the food and service. The menu is traditional Italian and they offer the best Cornish Hen with polenta I have ever had. Surprisingly, the prices are somewhat moderate and the wine list is more than adequate. There are two dining rooms (upstairs and street level) and both are... More

Had dinner with a colleague and the food was excellent. Veal was excellent cut of meat and the pasta was perfect dente. The owner stopped by to say hello and thank us - nice touch. Also nice was that you could talk no loud music or bar noise that is so common these days. Salutamu!

Ok here we go! We thought because of the location and the warmth of the decor that it was worth a second chance. We are in need of a neighborhood restaurant, since it's sister restaurant, on 58th street closed. This time there was a different maitre d' who by the way was very gracious and charming. We asked to sit... More

Vivolo is a venue that you MUST experience. It is without a doubt one of the better restaurants that I have ever been in. The ambience is subdued and refined with wood paneling and a gas fireplace to enhance and entice the diner, enabling them to relax and enjoy a meal that is prepared meticulously and served with aplomb and...

I found Vivolo by checking for area restaurants on Trip Advisor while visiting NYC on vacation. We were in the neighborhood shopping and wanted something within walking distance. What a great find. The atmosphere was great as was the wait staff. Everyone was extremely attentive from making sure our water and wine never got to low to suggesting excellent appetizers... More

Off the beaten track, this Italian restaurant is in a beautiful townhouse. It's a great romantic setting. Ask to sit upstairs near the fireplace. While the food is good and the prices are fair, the real star of this restaurant is the quiet romantic setting and ambiance. All this adds so much to the experience of truly 'dining.' It's often...

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
