We ran right through the menu on this night; Antipasti board (lots of delicate tastes and finds hiding on the board), Caprese (the best anywhere), Gnochhi (light and fluffy as i have ever tasted), mixed grill (I think I was full before it even arrived) and deserts, each with a scoop of gelato. A wonderful meal with friends and we... More

Food was fine. The service is lacking and expectations of a substantial tip?! I thought a tip was earned not expected. Will not be back

We visited Vivo again. We tried the charcuterie appetizer which was the excellent and featured house cured meats and local cheese; it reminded me of our trip to Italy this spring. We also had the caprese salad with local hot house tomatoes and has been a favourite of ours for a while now. We shared fettuccine formaggio and the lamb... More

This restaurant is a one of a kind restaurant. You won't find anything quite like it. Food is amazing, service was spot on, and the atmosphere is perfect. I had an amazing night. We had the risotto and the duck. Cooked perfectly and the portions were great.

It was our anniversary, we booked a table by phone. The table reservation wasn't taken into consideration, as they put our table of two between a huge table of twelve. We were like a small fish crammed between a wall. It very noisy and uncomfortable not enjoyable. The waiter was hurried and would explain the menu then walk away. The... More

A dinner for two families (4 adults and 4 children) cost us a pretty penny - almost $400 later. Of course, we knew that it was going to be an expensive meal but what we didn't expect was a 20% mandatory tip - yes 20%! I have never in my life been to a restaurant that applied a 20% tip.... More

Well where do we start with Vivo! It's most definitely a one of a kind atmosphere and setting with the open-concept theme that shouts sophistication and shows off the clean, professional kitchen environment. There is no messing around in the kitchen which is run by an experienced in-house chef. All ingredients are purchased from local sources and the emphasis on... More

Wanted to celebrate a milestone birthday in a special way and Vivo definitely delivered on that! the atmosphere is so wonderful, it's electric. The primo dishes started and we had tomato salad and ceasar salad, both impressive. Then secondo was risotto and a gnocci that the kids destroyed - they too were so delicious. Finally, we had tenderloin and grilled... More

Probably a good idea to make reservations in advance, as we did. Fills up very quickly. A few problems we found was that there is no noise abatement, it gets very loud . Each table is packed in tightly and you have to talk over everybody to have any kind of conversation, which also means you can pick up on... More

A great place to go for a family dinner. For the appetizers we had the caprese salad and the carpaccio - both were very good. Group sized portions means everyone can have a little taste of everything, which worked well for us. Main course was mafalda, pollo ruspante, and filletto di manzo. Everything we tasted was truly fantastic! Check out... More
