  • "Chicken parm was top shelf, antipasto was excellent. Martini so-so and pricey at $16. Service was excellent and attentive."

  • "Viviano serves some different, but very delicious, Italian food. They have a good Gluten-free menu, and their broccoli rabe is to die for. We can't wait to go back there."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "A last minute decision proved to be a good one. Everything from the meatball appitizer and romain salad to the lasagna and scallops was excellent. No room for desert this time. Maybe next time."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My husband & I have been to Viviano's a few times. Every time we are very happy with the food. It's a little pricey, but worth it. We LOVE the Cioppino (seafood stew), but you will need an appetizer or salad to go along with it as it won't completely fill you."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This restaurant is located in the casino and is easy to get to. The food is pretty good considering it is in a casino. The pasta is home made. The best dish was the lobster ravioli. I would recommend this place for a good Italian meal the.shapiros@comcast.net won't break the bank."

  • "We have been here twice now and we enjoyed our first trip better. The food was very good. The service was just OK. Took over 10 minutes before someone came to our table and then I had to ask for bread. The reason I felt rushed is I was still eating my appetizer and they brought out my entrée. I really hate when a restaurant does that. I like to have time in between courses to relax and have a glass of wine. So I did not order a second glass of wine. I just would not expect this to occur at a Tony Clark restaurant."

  • "First time at Viviano and was pleasantly surprised given this restaurant is inside VF Casino. Great bar - meets between Viviano and Pacific Prime. Great food and drink selection - everything tasted great and service was not rushed. Our waiter was extremely pleasant and gave great recommendations on trying new menu items. My only complaint (given the small, intimate sizing of the restaurant) was the larger party in the back celebrating a birthday was EXTREMELY loud .. obnoxious and not considerate of the other guests. Although the waiter did immediately apologize for the noise upon greeting us, I feel management should have told them to keep in mind they were not the only guests in the restaurant."

  • "I had the pesto strip steak with asparagus and mushrooms. It was all cooked perfectly and flavorful. I also enjoyed the special mushroom bisque. The service was outstanding. We had an early dinner and it wasn't busy yet. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal and said they would go back."

  • "Food was tasty but the service was a little slow. A glass of wine was about half the size as other restaurants."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "the food was ok but the service was the worst. gave our order and 15 minutes later a waiter tried to deliver entrees to us that were obviously for another table. after 25 minutes our waiter came over and said our appetizers should be out shortly. i said could we at least get bread after 25 minutes? they brought 2 salads and 1 should have been a soup, so she ran and got me a soup , but no spoon, had to steal from another table. brought out entrees and after we started eating, came and took them away saying they were for another table. brought out steak and porkchop entrees finally, but no steak knife, had to use butter knife. almost the worse service i ever had."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "The mushroom soup was the best. I also enjoyed my seafood dinner, interesting mix of ingredients and a fish I never heard of but was delicious. My husband enjoyed his chicken parm, too. We love vivianos!"

  • "If you're looking for a great Italian meal like moms You must go to Viviano's. The service was great even the executive chef Dominic came out to all the tables to greet us."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Everyone In our party of 5 enjoyed their meal. We had to wait for a few minutes past our reservation for our table. We didn't complain about it but the restaurant sent over an anti pasta plate and a cheese plate as a courtesy. Service was excellent."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "we tried it and the staff there are very nice-- but make sure if you wish to have each plate brought out when HOT, that you say so-- otherwise, they bring out all the plates at the same time and they do not fit on the table..."

  • "Food was delicious. Service was wonderful-no problems that previous comments alluded to. Enjoyed the meal."

  • "We had a very good meal. We tried this last minute and the menu was pre fixed and wouldn't be our first choices to order. We've seen the menu prior and will return to dine off the main menu."

  • "My girlfriends and I went to Viviano for a get together before the Holidays. There were only three of us and the restaurant was not crowded, but they only had one waiter working. It took us over an hour to get our entrees. The food was good, but I used casino comps. I would not pay the prices to eat there if I were not using comps."

  • "Enjoyed the restaurant, as a first time guest. they were very accomodating toward my onion allergy and informed me everything made to order. It was and it was delicious."
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "This is the 2nd time recently that my husband & I have eaten at Viviano's and been disappointed. The first was the same day as the Food & Bev. event at VF Casino. Even though we had a reservation it took almost an hour to be seated. This past weekend we tried again only this time we showed up early hoping to be seated early. The hostess told me it would be about 15 minutes. It wound up being about 35 to 40 minutes. When we were taken to our table we noticed the restaurant was about half empty. I'm not sure why they couldn't seat us upon arrival when there were about 8+ tables that didn't have guests the entire time we were there. Did they have THAT many cancellations? The wait staff was good but that front desk will be their demise."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "Great service. Consistent food... we have been there before. But we missed the calamari... they took it off of the menu"
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "this was our fourth visit to viviano and it gets better each time we did the family dinner special which was not only delish but a fantastic value can't wait to get back"
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "We were there on a Sunday night and the offered a family style menu for $25 per person. It was really worth it. The food was very good and more than we could eat. We had enough left over for another meal the next night. They also had a special value wine list by the bottle that was also a good deal. Service was very good and we enjoyed our evening. We certainly will be back again."
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "We ate at this establishment yesterday. Simply put, if you visit the casino then i guess it's OK place. If you looking just for some italian restaurant in Phila area to dine at then there are many other much better places to find."

  • "Excellent experience with great service by our server Blake A+++"
    Dined on 9/26/2013
  • "After looking at the menu I saw there was nothing really for me to eat as a vegetarian. My server was very friendly and asked the chef what they could do. The chef made me a delicious veg friendly meal!"
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "The service was lacking when we dined here and the food was ok. It is a bit dark, not kid friendly"
    Dined on 9/21/2013
  • "From the start we received excellent service. We were early for our reservation but were seated promptly (the restaurant was nearly empty anyway). Our server, Blake, was one of the best servers we've ever had. He even offered me a taste of a wine I inquired about. The food was delicious and the timing was just right. The décor was beautiful. All of this, and the price was quite moderate. We will definitely go back!"

  • "our waitress was wonderful. I had grilled shrimp and veggies (which was not on the menu) and it was delicious....very good bread and my husband's pasta was very good.....nice portions and great service."
    Dined on 9/8/2013
  • "This restaurant was the bright spot in an otherwise poor experience at the Valley Forge Casino Resort. Nice Italian ambiance. Our server, kaitlyn, was the perfect combination of friendly, attentive and competent. We had the prosciutto wrapped scallops which were perhaps the best scallops I ever ate. They were (4) very large, tender and well cartelized scallops. The sautéed spinach that accompanied them was equally delicious. My partner had the prosciutto ravioli. They were small sachets of pasta with the prosciutto stuffed inside. They were in a light browned butter sauce. It was a unique pasta offering that was well executed and full of flavor. Desserts seemed amazing."

  • "My wife and I recently went there for date night. We had a good experience and enjoyed the family style special for the day. Couldn't finish all the food but took some home."
    Dined on 9/1/2013
  • "I was not impressed with the food. I ordered Chicken Piccata, and it came with a pasta similar to egg noddles. The dish tasted more like a chicken and gravy dish, not like Piccata. Service was slow at times. Bread took 20 minutes to arrive after we placed our orders. Sugar was not brought for coffee as requested. When someone who I assume was a manager asked how everything went, and we told him about the sugar, he took the coffee off the bill. We might return to give Viviano a second chance in case it was an off night, but then again, we may not."
    Dined on 8/31/2013
  • "Nice resturant, but service was a little slow at times. Food portions on some items were "larger" than what was expected, but other portions were much "smaller" than expected. Waitress was extremely nice, knew the menu, and gave suggestions. Don't know if I would return, but for a casino, it was nice."
    Dined on 8/18/2013
  • "Very authentic Italian. We went for a special occasion and the food and service was excellent. The food was a little pricey but definitely worth it!"

  • "We had a great dinner. The service was excellent and we were very happy with the quality of the food. Portion sizes were generous as well. We will definitely be going back."

  • "The food and service were great. It was our anniversary and they gave us complimentary champagne and dessert but they could use a little more space since the noise level was quite loud for the space there. There was a big party in back of restaurant and that is all you could hear. It was hard for me and my wife to talk quietly to each other felt like we had to shout to each other. But besides that the food and wait staff was great and very friendly. Would still recommend to someone to have dinner there"
