Pasta was really good and the baked chicken was simple but surprisingly good. The service was better than most restaurants in Edmonton. Tiramisu was good also. Great place to eat with family.

Went for dinner with 4 friends. The food was good, but very expensive for what we had. The service was good, nothing extraordinary. I feel there's other restaurants out there that have equally good food, but better value.

Always fantastic food coupled with fantastic service. Wine list is awesome and Caesar salad and fettuccini is a must order, or the gnocchi. Actually everything is delicious. Don't be scared of prices, its family style, meant to be shared!

My wife and I have been dining at Vivo Ristorante probably since it opened. It's not a cheap place so we only tend to go there every 3 or 4 months but every time we go we get great service from the staff and the food never fails to please. The chef's at Vivo are always inspired to try new... More

We eat here frequently. The food is Italian and it is family style....bring your appetite because there is a lot of food. The staff are always attentive and selection of wines is pretty good with knowledgeable senior staff. The menu was getting a bit tiresome but some wonderful new items last night.
