Over priced , they made 2 mistakes on our receipts and the only reason they corrected was because we caught them. We waited for too long for our food/bread .Me and my family don't care about going back there again .

Various members of the family have run restaurants in Raleigh/Cary for perhaps 20 years. Always good solid food, pizza, sandwiches, salads, pasta, ... Not fancy, but tasty and enjoyable. Pleasant interior, pleasant servers, nice place to eat.

My fabulous hairdresser, whose shop is around the corner, told me about Vivo after my last cut. We have been THREE times in the last month! The first visit, I was getting a terrible cold. I ordered the Stracciatelli soup and Grandma's Margherita pizza to go. Let me tell you that the soup worked a miracle. It is perfectly flavored... More

We came here to celebrate a family member's birthday. The restaurant, recommended to us by a native, was a great choice. The menu had a good selection without trying to be an every-Italian-dish-for-every-person place. Our server was friendly and casual, and came back often to check on things. I had a great glass of white wine, and others enjoyed their... More

Our table was situated where I could watch a master chef make meatballs just like I do. The pasta dish was cooked al dente, not overdone and mushy. I believe that my grandmother and mother would enjoy almost anything on the menu. The variety of food was superb: gluten free, vegetarian as well as regular (?)choices were listed. Specific questions... More

I really don't understand all the great reviews about this place. My family and I had a TERRIBLE experience. Restaurant was very busy on a Sat night around 7 pm. We literally sat at the table for an hour before the BREAD even came to the table. The excuse was that our bread was stolen twice (are you kidding me?)... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. Each time was excellent! The wait staff is well trained and the service was great each time. The food is excellent, in fact it seems like home made with fresh ingredients. We had the stuffed mushrooms this time, very good with great complimenting sauce. The Cinnell's Famous pizza is promoted as a... More

Place was once quiet even on a Saturday night. Now it is busy and it deserves to be busy. Big menu of Italian specialties. So far, every dish made to order. Good veal. Excellent loaf of bread with olive oil....except for a substituted focasia?? on Feb 11. Good service. Moderate noise level. Parking is tight but there is plenty more... More

This evening I chose the Pollo Milanases. Our server suggested the Solosole Vermentino. I was so delighted with this wine and found it to be the perfect pairing for the meal. I was blown away by the simplicity of the dish yet the depth achieved by the Basalmic reduction. I would have liked more grilled red peppers but over all... More

Friendly prompt service. Great atmosphere. Food is delish!!! Fresh and wonderful flavors. Calamari appetizer best we have ever had and we have eaten it at Vivo's twice. Penne Rustica is fantastic, meatballs are divine, homemade desserts are heavenly. We have been twice since our daughter moved to Raleigh and cannot wait for our third trip!!! Highly recommended.
