We're New Englanders stranded in California and we look for Eastern comfort wherever we can find it out here. We'd heard the clam chowder in Vivolo's was very good so we sought the place out. Vivolo's is located in a small retail area on Central Avenue in Pacific Grove. The restaurant is not very large but thee is comfortable space between the tables. The tables themselves are covered in white paper so if you are looking for linen, look elsewhere.
We both had the clam chowder (of the creamy white, New England variety) and it was very good. The clams were tender and I didn't chomp down on a single grain of sand in my bowl. My wife and the shrimp and chips and I had the fried seafood platter. Both menu items were properly prepared and the fries were delicious. The service was prompt and courteous and the prices were reasonable for the combination of good food and top-notch service.
