Great spot for ItalianVaried 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.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOle' Vivo!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.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat TimeGreat ambience, above average food. Great host/friendly service. Really nice time.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMYou must go and eat here!Beautifully presented-absolutely fantastic food! From the appetizer, to the salad, to the entree, to the desert, all of it was just amazing! So delicious! The service was A+! The ambience was great as well. I was so glad I decided to make a reservation at this restaurant!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat 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!!5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceLove 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.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat gnocciExcellent...the gnocci are the best ive ever had!!!!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, greater noise levelVivo 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.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food- good service-Excellent food- good service- nice atmosphere- Valet service charge the highest I've seen.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had not dined here in severalWe had not dined here in several years, but were very glad we went back.

The tables are within a foot of each other.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond time here and stillSecond 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.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food both wereService and food both were excellant. Management took an interest and the quality showed.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
