A word from BiVio Ristorante
BIVIO means fork in the road in. And, as philosopher of language Yogi Berra once said If you come to a fork in the road take it. We are known for are chef Pastor he has brought many good dishes Savory Calamari all'arabbiata is sautéed and sparked with hot cherry peppers in a marinara. Even better the multilayered Baked Eggplant, red sauce finished with four chesses and not a trace of bitterness. We have a Sole Bivio it is very good moist snowy, thick piece fillet sautéed in a white wine sauce with a handful of pignoli nuts shrimp and tomatoes concasse. Also if you like duck its meaty and juicy. To finish of are home made desserts Cheesecake, Tiramisu and Cannoli and many more!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    I was interested in a restaurant where I could catch up with some old friends without having to yell to be heard. I discovered that there would be live music, but because we were seated way on the other side of the restaurant (in a different room), we didn't hear a note. It was rather loud out by the bar (which was way too small and crowded for the restaurant) so if you go here and don't want it to be loud, specify that you'd like to be in the inside room. Some of the food was overpriced ($9 for a pretty small salad) but everything was delicious. They were apparently short staffed that evening, and admittedly the service was on the slow side, but it wasn't a problem. The manager pitched in, the owner made his rounds, and all staff was professional, friendly, and attentive to our needs. We didn't even realize they were short staffed until the owner apologized for it (and sat down with us to chat for a few minutes). It was a great evening and I would definitely return!

    We reserved a table via OpenTable last minute when alternate plans changed. We were greeted warmly and seated right away. All of the staff were attentive and friendly. We were served yummy bread and there was olive oil on the table. Our shared appetizer was the Homemade Ravioli (6 pcs) and perfect for sharing. It was delish. My husband ordered the Sole and I ordered the Linguine Bolognese. Both entrees were served hot and perfectly cooked. I love my food served HOT, HOT, HOT, right from the oven and it was! We skipped dessert but they sounded wonderful. That's for next time...

    I often search open table for new places, have to eat out a lot for work and need some variety. Must have drove past BiVio a million times and didnt realize it was there until I found it on open table. Great food and Service. They had live music but we were catching up with girlfriends and they offered us a table in the back so we could chat. Nice place great for friend, date or family. The room we were in could hold a private party and was nice. The service was outstanding as was the food. They had healthy options as well. Food was fresh, tasty and portions were good. I will be back and would highly recommend... back to where I started it was a Great find!

    Our first time here. We celebrated our mom's 90th birthday. Party of 9. 5 star service, our waiter John was a class act. Very knowledgeable with the wine selection (ordered 2 bottles!) and he was so relaxed and accommodating to any specific item we wanted. We will be making this a regular favorite place to eat. Immaculate too! Favorite items on menu…Oysters were a 10, Burrata perfect, linguine with white clam sauce perfect. Duck cooked to perfection. I can't say enough about the quality and preparation of everything. No one was disappointed !

    This was not our first visit, and it will definitely won't be our last. Everything was very good, the food was all amazing, the servers were very attentive, my only recommendation would be to lower the volume of the music, he is extremely talented, but at times it was a bit difficult to have a conversation without shouting. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

    My Husband and I dined at Bivio for the first time on Friday Night Oct 10th. We were very impressed with the food and service. We each had the E Special Fish entree. I had Mahi Mahi with basil mashed potatoes and aspargus. My husband had a almond crusted sea bass. The fish was verye fresh and . Our waiter Tom was very helpful and knowledgeble. They also have entertainment which was an added extra. I would recommend this restaurant to my friends.

    Another enjoyable and delicious dinner at BiVio. As usual our waiter Tom as well as the entire staff are so professional. Our water glasses never empty, our napkins folded, our silverware changed with each course. This was the first time, we took my mom there, she had the duck special, where there was nothing (but bones) left on her dish. Before we even left, she asked when we could come back! My husband had a pasta and seafood special which was excellent and I stuck to a menu favorite of mine, veal piccata. In all honesty, we have never had a bad meal there, nor has anyone we've recommended to go there. On weekends, the light live background music at the bar makes me forget i am at a local neighborhood gem of a restaurant. Great!

    We have dined here several times. Always very happy with the service and food. A little pricey , but worth it. We invited 2 other couples to join us for dinner. They loved everything they ordered. Had a 3 hour dinner. Was not rushed out. Great waiters. The chef is really creative! Loved it and so did our fiiends. We will be back soon.

    Although the duck my friend and I had was delicious, my friend's husband thought his seafood di mare dish was tasteless and watery. The waiter immediately took it back and offered him another choice from the menu. Her husband really enjoyed the bolognese dish that was substituted. We were charged for the bolognese dish and not the seafood di mare. We will go back there again.

    My wife and I had dinner at BiVio the other night and were very pleased with the quality and presentation of the food. I had a breaded pounded veal chop on the bone with a salad on top that was fantastic. It was among the most tender veal I have had anywhere including some very exclusive Manhattan Italian restaurants. My wife had a chicken scaparella on the bone entree that she equally enjoyed. I found the prices to be fair for the quality. We will return in the near future.

    Our 2nd time to BiVio was as good as the first. My mom and I had the duck again and it was as good as the first time. Cooked to perfection and generous portions. We also enjoyed the Gnocchi as an appetizer which was tender and not grainy at all. The pomodoro sauce was light and delicious. This may be our new favorite restaurant!

    This was a great local find. We absolutely loved our meal. From the moment we walked in our host Nick sat us immediately. He came by several times inquiring about our meal and service. I can honestly say he is a wonderful host who truly cares about his patrons. And the service was wonderful as well. Our dinner consisted of scallops ( which were cooked to perfection), and chicken scarpariello, that was delicious. Overall I really have to say we loved it and will definitely return. I already know my biggest decision will be to order something different or stick with those delicious scallops.

    I have been to BiVio many times and it never disappoints. We were there last on a Friday night with another couple. We were asked if we wanted to sit near the bar because they would be having live entertainment to enjoy. We declined because we wanted to catch up with our friends in a quieter location. They sat us in the back room and it was perfect. We each had a different appetizer and entree so 8 different dishes between us all and we were all happy with the quality. Our server was attentive, but not intrusive. All around, another great experience at BiVio. On our way out we got to get a listen to the entertainment. At first we thought it was a cd piped through the restaurant, the singer was that good. We almost wished we dined up front!
