Description: Akin to a welcoming trattoria found on a street corner in Italy, Vivoli Cafe is an intimate neighborhood restaurant located in West Hollywood. From the heart of Florence to Sunset Blvd, Vivoli's chefs bring their deep rooted passion and talents to delight the most discerning palettes. Founded in 2003 with the desire to share the finest Italian cuisine, Vivoli offers a genuine taste of home within a family atmosphere. The most authentic Cucina Italiana combined with extraordinary service creates an experience that stands out above the rest. The Chef fills the air with scents of fresh baked focaccia, garlic parmesan, and homemade pasta. Tempt your palette with award winning pastries from decadent Tiramusu and Panna Cotta to a rich Cannoli and Bigne. The cuisine combines the northern and southern regions of Italy melding authentic flavors with traditional cooking techniques producing signature flavors that have earned rave reviews and awards in Zagat, MyFoxLA and Gayot. Vivoli Cafe welcomes you!

The food was excellent, the penne in vodka sauce is as good as I have had. The salads and bread add to the meal. The restaurant looks like it has had a lift and the staff are friendly and attentive. We still miss Rita!

“Charm and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

Enjoyed yet another lovely evening at Vivoli. The new decorative touches only enhanced the predictably good food and service. The proprietress, Cristina is always cheerful and attentive. I think the lobster ravioli is my new favorite. I think this is making me hungry!

“excellent food, very good service, nice ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

vivoli is my place for relaxing with friends. the food is authentic italian. the wine list is ample and resonable. i find myself there a couple of times a week. for value, it can't be beat. the luncheon and dinner special are an unbelievable bargain given this town's propensity for high prices. the linguini and clam sauce is to die for. my favorite restaurant in san miguel.

“Great service. Varied menu. Excellent Italian wines.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

Good Italian food and decent wine is not easy to find in San Miguel but this restaurant has the winning combo. Wednesday night is no corkage fee but why bring wine when they've got the good stuff! Lunch and dinner specials are worth every peso. The help is friendly and efficient. I LOVE this place!
