“Bargain for great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Just passing through and stopped here at the suggestion of a hotel desk clerk. The food was as good as it is at the best Italian restaurant in our home area but at about 2/3 the cost. We had several pasta dishes, house salad, "garlic nuggets," and house bread/oil. The ingredients and spices were very fresh. Even though the restaurant was full, the food came quickly and was served at the appropriate temperature. We stuffed ourselves so much that we didn't have room for dessert, but we still had food left over. Our only regret was that on our return trip home on Monday they were closed.

“Good pizza.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012 via mobile

We were trying to find El Burrito restaurant but Tripadvisor gave no street address. So an Internet search provided one and that turned out to be a closed down building. So, El Burrito, if you exist, sorry I missed you. But we passed Pizzeria Vivo and decided to stop there. Three of us thought this was 5 star pizza. Compared to Chicago I'd say 4 but either way it was good and would return and reccommend to those who want pizza in Big Rapids.

“Take out disaster”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012 via mobile

Wasn't the first time but will probably be the last attempt at take out here. Placed order for pizza and their antipasto appetizer. Waited 20 minutes to pick up as directed. Arrive and am charged for and given two pizzas. Appears they have an antipasto pizza. The apparent Owner refused to respond to the fact that an antipastpo appetizer was ordered, not an antipasto pizza. He just would respond with a comment about the popularity of his antipasto pizza. Never a "Sorry" uttered until the clerk finally apologized upon correction of the order. I have had other issues with take out here. Be very careful. Otherwise, food is OK.

“Delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

This is my comfort food restaurant in Big Rapids. I can always count on delicious, fresh food with excellent service. Not a very big wine list but the ones they do have match the food perfectly.
