My wife and I have been dining at Vivo Ristorante probably since it opened. It's not a cheap place so we only tend to go there every 3 or 4 months but every time we go we get great service from the staff and the food never fails to please. The chef's at Vivo are always inspired to try new... More

We eat here frequently. The food is Italian and it is family style....bring your appetite because there is a lot of food. The staff are always attentive and selection of wines is pretty good with knowledgeable senior staff. The menu was getting a bit tiresome but some wonderful new items last night. All pasta is made in house.....wonderful. This is... More

Browned in Walnut butter!!! That s#&t is awesome lol. And all the items are too. It's a true Italian family style eating bistro. I'd recommend.

Vivo is located in an obscure spot, but well worth the drive. Atmosphere, service and food quality always impress - been there On at least 7 occasions including Large groups and everyone in the party had a great experience. Like mom says, try it, you'll like it!

Family style dining. Came here for a birthday dinner. Waiter was very helpful in what portions sizes would be suitable for our group. The charcuterie tray was the fave of the group. The pasta and meat dishes could have used some flavor or salt. It was missing something.

Met a friend and husband for dinner. Food was great and delicious. Waiter was attentive but not intrusive. My only negative comments would be the price. Fairly expensive. Lamb main was delicious

This is an excellent place for group. Service is family style so a larger group allows you to experience so much more variety in terms of the offerings. The food is amazing with all the pasta being made in house - so the taste is fabulous. Will be one of our new regular places to visit regardless - couple, family... More

I went to Italy with my fiance in August, we were craving authentic Italian cuisine and found Vivos. The place was very busy but the service was wonderful. Unfortunately the prices were crazy. At $12.00 for a 6 oz glass of wine (the cheapest glass) we were not impressed. The food was good but authentic as theyve lut their own... More

We ran right through the menu on this night; Antipasti board (lots of delicate tastes and finds hiding on the board), Caprese (the best anywhere), Gnochhi (light and fluffy as i have ever tasted), mixed grill (I think I was full before it even arrived) and deserts, each with a scoop of gelato. A wonderful meal with friends and we... More
