My husband is full of surprises so dinner at Vivo's was a welcome one. I was surprized with tickets to The Australian Bee Gees a red rose, and a wonderful dinner. Thank you hubby, thank you Vivo's, thank you Frank.

Thought we'd try the Spaghetti con Vongole at the Cucina Viva which proved to be a delightful choice, and although a pasta dish of spaghetti clams, prawns, chilli and garlic in a mouth watering fish broth topped with crumbed paisley wasn't heavy at all, the...More

Italian cuisine is defined by its generosity of spirit, and at Cucina Vivo, that’s exactly what you can expect to enjoy. Inspired by the cliff-top restaurants of the Amalfi Coast, Cucina Vivo serves up authentic Italian favourites and inspired new classics – all in a cheerful, relaxed setting overlooking the pristine tropical pool. The impressive wood-fire pizza oven provides an eye-catching centrepiece, and on a balmy evening you can’t go past dinner on the open terrace. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a casual dinner with family or celebrating a special occasion, Cucina Vivo is the perfect place to share great food and conversation.
