Great lunch specialsVivolo is typically a dinner spot, and a very good one. In order to attract lunch guests, they're running a fine value prix fixe menu. The food is good, the quantity a bit scarce, but suitable. Overall a nice lunch experience in a very good restuarant5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thoroughly enjoyed ourWe thoroughly enjoyed our dinner with friends at Vivolo.

On a recent trip to NY we got to revisit Vivolo and were quite happy to see that it had lost none of it's charm, great food, service and a special mention for David the Maitre D who was very accomodating for a large group of 8. I wholeheartedly recommend this restaurant, you won't be disappointed.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWelcome to ItalyGood, authentic Italian food. Friendly service. Good selection of wines.

Can't wait to come back again soon!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI work and live on the upperI work and live on the upper east side. It is difficult to find a venue appropriate for a business dinner where the food and service are good AND you are able to hear yourself speak! Vivolo was the perfect spot. I remembered their upstairs dining room (which is not always open, depends on how busy they are on a given night). When I arrived, the maitre d' was very gracious and seated me upstairs despite the fact that my table was the only one occupied at that time upstairs. My guests were very impressed--by the room, the service, and how accommodating the staff was to special requests re the food. Great choice.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally enjoyed our eveningTotally enjoyed our evening with our adult children. Waiter was excellent and the food most enjoyable. Will certainly return. Great local neighborhood find! Also, tiramisu was the best!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMJust good food, good atmosphere,Just good food, good atmosphere, good service in a pleasant NY Upper East neigbhorhood setting.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTop-knotch service!I recently celebrated my 50th birthday here with five friends. Although the restaurant was not told ahead of time that it was a celebration, they treated us like royalty. I had mentioned in my Open Table reservation that three of us were vegetarians, and the manager came over to tell us a list of dishes the chef could make for us. He checked in again throughout the meal, genuinely concerned that we were satisfied with our selections. The meal was well-paced, and all the selections delicious. See if you can get the pappardelle with mushrooms made especially for the vegetarians. Don't miss the sparkling dessert wine.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMReally pretty townhouse.Really pretty townhouse. Very romantic, especially upstairs. Very warm and welcoming with good service and very good food and appropriate prices. Scallop and polenta appetizer was wonderful. Vongole with linguine, paccheri and meatballs was excellent. Ricotta cheesecake excellent and light. Wine by quartino was great!. My new go to Italian restaurant.

First rate maitre d' and waite staff. A knowledgeable chef gives you well portioned plates. The $26.00 fixed price three course meal is a real nice choice, with full portions,and a selection of tasty dishes. Even their simple dish of pasta pomodoro was better than most. And the rolls are really flavorful and warm!
Many times we have been disappointed after a second visit to restaurants because of the inconsistencies. We will continue to enjoy this place more often.12/14/2012 12:00:00 AM
