We had the privilege of sitting at Table 70. It was a wonderful evening and the view over the rest of the restaurnat was very pleasant. The food was good and very plentiful. Loved the pastas and desserts....

Second time here and still
Second time here and still very impressed! The scallops were PERFECT! My boyfriend's steak was awesome (filet) and could really taste the benefit of the wood fired grill/oven. Carpaccio was good. Beet salad was a little disappointing. My boyfriend loved his rye sour cocktails and I really appreciated the bartender making me a mocktail for a low price and taking our picture very courteously. Everything was slightly underseasoned but appreciated the salt being on the table.

Wonderful place and great food, but if you looking for cozy this is not the place. The tables are within a foot of each other.

We had not dined here in several years, but were very glad we went back. The food and service were still remarkable after 20+ years. Great choice for dining before an event at the United Center.

Great food, greater noise level
Vivo was recommended to my wife and I for a romantic evening out. While the food and service were fantastic, the ambiance was anything but romantic. The music (Bob Marley...an unusual pick for an Italian restaurant) was overly loud, and there was a large Holy Communion party with bored, LOUD children. My wife and I could barely hear ourselves talk all night.
That aside, the food was fabulous. The grilled asparagus appetizer, the beet salad , and the walleye special were just the right amount of food and flavor.
If you are a foodie and are looking for some unique Italian offerings, don't miss Vivo. If you are looking to gaze into your better half's eyes and feel your heart flutter, you may have to wait until you get home for that.

Excellent...the gnocci are the best ive ever had!!!!!

Love Vivo! Everyone there is great! From manager on down. The food is always top notch from pasta to meat and fish dishes.
Everytime I visit I have never been disappointed in the service or meal. This last time I had the special Short Rib Risotto with wine.
It was Wonderful.

What a great time!
After googling best romantic spots in Chicago Vivo came up...so glad it did! We sat at Table 70, which has a really fun history of celebs. I wanted something different, fun and intimate for my 15th wedding anniversary and Table 70 totally fits the bill! The five course dinner was excellent from beginning to end, and the service equally so! The price was really amazing for all that we were served. We were so happily stuffed by meal's end. I would recommend this very cool bar and restaurant to anyone looking for something really fun and unique in the city. Thanks, Vivo, for a wonderfully memorable occasion!!

Great spot for Italian
Varied wine list of old and new world blends that were regional classics. Attentive and friendly wait staff. Food was tasty but not inspired. However I would recommend to a friend and return here again.

Good food. Bar staff are very nice. We had the spaghetti and salmon which both were very well prepared and presented.
We have never had poor service nor a poorly prepared meal.

Saturday night dinner outside
Vivo was a nice place to be on a beautiful night in Chicago. My only complaint is that there was no New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc by the glass. I find that everywhere I go these days offers it. Wish Vivo did.

Great experience and food!
I went to Vivo with my girlfriend to celebrate her 25th birthday, and we had a great experience. The food was exceptional, the waitress was very nice and on point with suggestions. I would absolutely reccomend for anyone for a date!

If only ...
The only problem with this experience was the chair that I sat in -- like all the others in the room. For a person who likes to sit straight it was an awful experience. I suggest guests bring a pillow!

As always, it was a great dining experience from the point of arrival through the dessert. I have been coming to this restaurant since it opened, and it remains my favorite.

a really great night!!
My mom way in town visiting me, I always like to take her to different restaurants. My boss not too long ago had brought a catered lunch in from vivo and I was impressed so I decided to it might be nice to take my mom. We were not disappointed!!! The gnocchi wasamazing, I mean really amazing, we were still talking it about it the next day! Our waitress was very friendly, and really attentive! I will definitely be back!

Food was very good and the service excellent. I will definitely be back. One challenge we had was that the combination of the low light level and the script font on the menu made it somewhat difficult to read the smaller text. Perhaps a slightly larger font might help.

I had been to Vivo's several years ago. So nice to see they are as good as I remember. That says a lot for a restaurant to survive & remain outstanding. Definitely will return.

Vivo is a long standing favorite. The food is always wonderful and the service is excellent.

Solid Italian Cuisine
Our second visit to Vivo was as good as the first.
Great rigatoni with sausage, peas, and Parmesan cheese!
Also had a blackened tuna special entree that was excellent.
Nice wine list too.
