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.

First time here tonight. Visited with my boyfriend after booking a table online on their website. Lovely interior, candles. Soft welcoming atmosphere. We ordered the bruschetta for starter which was really good, one of the best bruschettas I've tasted, spot on. I chose the home made lasagne for my main and my boyfriend picked penne bolognese. Both fresh, hot and... More

My fiancée and I visited the restaurant last night, and were very happy with the whole experience. The food was lovely, and the staff were friendly and polite. The prices were quite reasonable, and we spent £50 even though we both had three courses and a drink! I would definitely recommend it!

I went here with my partner on the 3rd of September, as it was my 50th Birthday the week before and had been given a voucher. We came here on Valentine's Day and had a lovely meal. But this time was a different story, the waitress came over and we ordered our drinks, she came back with the bottle of... More

One of those places that I just want to love and can't The lack of atmosphere is palpable - what ever time of year The food is ok but nothing special but the prices are high for what you get

Luigi F, Manager at VIVO, responded to this review

Interesting review and clearly left by a competitor. Sally M claims to hail from Marrakech, Morocco but clearly has been to our restaurant many times as she indicates it has no atmosphere at any time of year? She also believes the food is expensive but obviously has not seen or tried our lunchtime and early evening menu where she could... More

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.
