    This last visit to Vivoli was not typical, as there was a bit of a mystery involving missing staff.... However, thanks to our server, David, as well as the sous chef, rising to the occasion, we were quite satisfied with our lunch; and we'll most certainly be back again and again. This is still one of our fave dining spots because when the chef IS in, he rocks!

    Nothing cutting edge here, but an expansive menu of traditional northern Italian food, prepared well. The availability of half-sizes for almost every entrée makes it possible to sample more without over eating, which is a good thing with a menu full of appealing items.

    Everything I've eaten at Vivoli since discovering this little intimate Italian treasure has been wonderful. It doesn't look like much from the outside, set in a small shopping strip, but the food is excellent and the prices reasonable. At my most recent lunch meeting, they were most accommodating with my special order of appetizer sizes including a combination of several items i like the most. Highly recommended!

    I have a few fave lunch spots, usually chosen based on proximity to the rest of the day's activities. I get excited whenever Vivoli works out to be the choice; and sometimes I orchestrate it that way.... because it's soooo good there! The prices are extremely reasonable, the food is extremely yummy, and the serviice is extremely charming (especially lately). Yeah, I'm a fan :-)

  • My fave Vivoli dish, Linguini
    AmaryllisVIP
    Dined on 2/6/2014
    My fave Vivoli dish, Linguini Pescatore, seemed even better than ever this time -- but then I think I've been saying that every other time as well :-) ...meaning it's really, really good!. Another hit was the Salmon Penne. All in all a wonderful place for lunch/dinner when catching a movie at the Sundance Cinema across the street.

    We went there to relive our first date and it was not an enjoyable experience. The food was awful, my veal scallopini was way over cooked. We ordered dessert, the BOWL that the creme brûlée came in was hot, yet the actual dessert was frozen. The notes on our reservation stated that we were reliving our first date, they only mentioned it after we had to send back our I edible dessert. The wine selection was minimal as they were out of over half of their wine list. All in all it was not very good, and we will not be returning. Ever. For the price, I expected better.

    Love this restaurant. Authentic Italian cuisine in the heart of crazy West Hollywood. Is wedged in a mini-strip mall, classic of West Hollywood....so don't look outside or it will ruin the mood. But...alas, we go there for the food which is always delicious. The olive tapenade and bread they bring to the table is to die for. The food that follows is incredible.

    The restaurant is in a small strip mall, but that is really were the negative ends. Great neighborhood place. The food was very, very good. I ordered a half-portion and it still was enough.

    They were very accommodating to our group and even rushed our orders because we had to make it to a meeting. Also a lovely place for dinner with your sweetie. The gnudi toscani was decadently delish!

    I was in the Los Angeles area visiting family for my birthday. I found Vivoli Cafe & Tratoria while searching restaurant options on line and the reviews interested me. So we took a chance and I am so glad we did—while the seating section is not that impressive, the menu selections, quality of entrees, and service were all wonderful. Our server listened and considered the comments of all five people in our party resulting in each of us having a delicious experience!
