Went with hubby and our two (grown up) children for our daughters 21st Birthday meal. Sadly, we were disappointed, after reading all good reviews we were expecting a good experience. Service slow. Staff not very friendly. Ordered olives, did not appear, but were on the bill. Ordered garlic bread, had to ask for it 3 times before it arrived, which... More

We went to Vivo with family in November. We loved it. Staff very friendly, a number of dishes available as part of the lunch special including additional dishes on the board. The restaurant began to fill up as time went by, and there was a pleasant buzz about the place which gave it a good atmosphere. We ordered venison and... More

Six of us visited Vivo for our Christmas party. The food was lovely, but the service left a lot to be desired. Four of us had starters, three of which came to the table quite quickly. Unfortunately the fourth arrived 10 minutes later, after the waiter had been reminded that we were a starter short! We had no such problems... More

This time everything was falling into place .....the starters were well above average and served quickly, drinks were served quickly too, however, there always seems to be an however with Vivo. My sirloin was excellent one of... More

Not everything went as it should but we had a great night and the food was lovely. There was an accent clash as my inlaws are from Lancashire and have thick northern accents so one of the dishes and one of the drinks were misunderstood but the staff coped with it well and still managed to give us all of...

We went to visit the restaurants last week and it was shocking!! Poor service throughout the meal! Also the food was shocking. The starter was terrible. A lump of cheese was terrible and covered in pesto just killed the flavour. One thing to add I will recommend the desserts. My profiteroles were lovely, but all round very disappointing.

We visited here on Saturday night - me, my husband and my son. The service was extremely friendly and efficient and the food was lovely. I started with calamari, but quite envied the fried goat's cheese, that my son had. My husband had the garlic bread, and had to leave some to leave room for his pizza! Both my husband... More

We live in Cambridge and our son and daughter-in-law live in Loughborough. Every couple of months we each drive halfway to Vivo Italian Restaurant to catch up and have a nice long visit. We are never disappointed with the food or service and we would thoroughly recommend it. If you like Italian food, you will enjoy going there.

Vivo is a 70 seat restaurant providing an intimate, fun atmosphere for lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday. Two courses are available every lunchtime and Monday to Thursday evening until 7pm for just £9.95 And a chef's special menu is also available most weeks. Our A La Carte menu is available every night and is changed twice per year. Our restaurant is family-run and children are very welcome at any time - a children's menu and high chair facilities are available. We also will prepare any vegetarian dish that we have ingredients in stock for and have gluten-free food available too.

Please note that our wood-fired pizza oven is not usually available at lunchtimes - except by special request for large parties.
