Not sure about our experience there. They never got our reservation@@!!! Which I had 3 confirmations on, so our party of 7 starving people who had driven 4 hours from NYC waited 20 minutes for a table! Food was too spicy. Pricey too, I won't be back.
Two of us had the chicken parmesan, which was delicious and a really nice sized chicken portion. Our third had the bucatini and loved it. Started with the tre carne pizza for an appetizer, which was also awesome.
We love to hear when our customers enjoy their experience with us! Come back and visit again soon.
This is our go-to spot when taking our employees to dinner. Great food, great setting, and great service!!

I love the mafaldine Bolognese. I should really try something else sometime but it is so good!

Shannon our server is excellent, excellent, excellent!

Chicken panini sandwiches were undercooked. No real taste. Needed seasoning etc. Italian bread, also, tasteless. Colleagues spaghetti was overwhelmed with sauce. No real taste. Overall, it’s ok if you’re there but not a destination location. Chianti was good...
Great italian fare in a comfortable but pleasant spot.
Thanks for dining with us, Millie! We hope to see you again soon!
The Blue Crab Potato Croquettes are awesome!
We're glad to hear you enjoyed them!
Our dining experience was great! We’ve never been here before but will be back for sure! Our waitress was Nina, very sweet and helpful. She made great suggestions, checked on us regularly.
The food.. we started with a cheese plate, 3 cheeses and 2 meats. It came with crackers and some olives in olive oil, an onion jam, and pickled veg. It was one of the nicest cheese plates we’ve had in a long time.
We had a half liter of house Cab Sauvignon which was Black Horse. It was very easy to drink, a tiny bit sweet (which i don’t normally like sweet). Well-balanced and great with all of our meals. We got 2 short rib dishes, one with home made pasta and one with gnocchi. I have to say the gnocchi won the prize as it actually tasted like a potato pasta, not thick and heavy. It has a nice gravy brown sauce with mushrooms, onions and the short rib. I didn’t care for the sauce much but my husband loved it. We also got an Alfredo with chicken and broccoli which my mom said the pasta was some that she really enjoyed. The bolognese was over a pasta similar to a thin lasagna noodle and the sauce was amazing, topped with a dollop of ricotta. All three were perfectly seasoned. The sauces were great, the meat was delicious. Can’t wait to get back to try other dishes!
Dessert. We had a limoncello cheesecake which was lemony (I know, shocking!). It was topped with a strawberry glaze with whipped cream and strawberry on the side. Really really good. We also got budino, which was a hazelnut chocolate pudding/fudge dessert, topped with whipped cream. It was great.
We really enjoyed all of the food. The ambiance was really nice as well. A little dark, romantic even, but good for friends as well! I can’t wait to return. I would highly recommend you try it!
We love to hear when our customers really have a 5-star dining experience with us. Thank you for dining with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
We had a get together of old friends who have not seen each other for awhile. 8 people. Service and food were flawless. New desserts were simply incredible. Some of our friends had never been to Vivo. They loved it and said they would be back again. Our server Janae was great!
We're so glad to hear your group enjoyed their dining experience with us! We look forward to seeing you all soon.
Everything was perfect. The food is delicious and fresh! Our server, Shannon, was great. She explained the menu in detail and was very personable.
We're glad to hear you had a 5-star experience with us!

Food is always great. Table for 2 in the middle of the dining room is a bit tight and awkward.
We're glad to hear you always enjoy your meal with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We go here at least once a month. This time the food was a bit off. Way too much cheese on the chicken parm. My wife had the lemon chicken and said it was horrible. It tasted like pure butter and the chicken was like rubber. We told the manager and they did nothing for us. We had a buy one get one free coupon, and they took off the cheaper chicken parm. Really? We love this place, and 99% of tbe time it is perfect, but when it isn’t good, they never seem to really care.
We appreciate your continued business and your feedback, Paul. Coupons are applied to the lesser value item and in this instance, that was the Chicken Parmigiana dish. We work hard to maintain a high quality of food and service here at Vivo. We hope to see you again soon!
Awesome experience; great service and ambiance.
We're happy to hear you enjoyed your experience with us!
I got there at6 pm and they had already ran out of mussels.
My main dish blackened salmon and cauliflower was the best! I’m a salmon snob and the cauliflower was probably the best I’ve ever had.
We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed your experience with us! We hope to see you again soon!
The Tre Carne pizza was fantastic and I could have eaten the whole thing myself. I got chicken parm as my main and it was good but not the best I’ve ever had. I would go back here to get more pizza.
We're glad to hear you enjoyed your meal with us! We look forward to seeing you again
This has become a go-to restaurant for us when friends come to visit. The antipasti is fab and the wine selection is wonderful.
We're so glad to hear you continuously enjoy your dining experiences with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

The food here is amazing- we ended up eating family style as we all wanted to try each other’s dishes, not one was disappointing. The red wine on tap is delicious too.
We love to hear when customers have a 5-star experience with us!
This was my first visit to Vivo and I was pleasantly surprised to find the service and food to be very good.
For a Tuesday evening, they were very busy but very attentive.
I enjoyed my shrimp and pasta dish and my co-worker raved about the fish.
We're so happy to hear you enjoyed your visit with us! We hope to see you again soon
The ambience and food was great. Restaurant was very noisy in the 7/8:00 dinner hour (which is to be expected). Our waiter was very attentive. I will definitely return to Vivo.
We're glad to hear you enjoyed your experience with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
We've been to Vivo a number of times and I have to say that the overall quality and experience we've had has declined.
This time around, we indicated that we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, albeit with children in-tow, and no one at the restaurant acknowledged it - in the past, they had been really good about helping us celebrate special occasions.
Also, I found a piece of plastic (likely from packaging of food?) in my pasta - the manager was very gracious and removed the cost of my meal from the check, and also offered to make me a fresh one (though it was at the end of my meal by the time our server came by to check-in, which is when I was able to mention to him about the plastic). We ended up not taking the manager up on his offer of a fresh pasta (even though I would've loved one) because our children had become quite restless by then.
Overall, I think I would still recommend Vivo to my friends and others, the quality of the food is still good. I think the service is not where it had been the first few times we've been. I would be hesitant to recommend Vivo to others who are celebrating a special event, though. I think it's still good for a nice supper.
My husband and I have dined at Vivo since they opened several years ago and have never been disappointed. The latest time we went with another couple who had never been there before and they enjoyed it as much as we did. Our appetizers consisted of a crisp Caesar salad (they have one of the best we've ever had), tomato bisque soup, and fried fresh mozzarella. For our entrees we enjoyed the salmon (blackened on the menu but my husband gets it simply grilled with shrimp and angel hair and marinara sauce), garlic shrimp, and chicken parmigiana (the chicken parmigiana was so big I brought 2/3 of it home to enjoy another evening). For dessert we shared a piece of flourless chocolate cake which was either too dry or to cold - it was hard to tell, and mixed chocolate/vanilla gelato which was to die for. Service is always excellent even when our server also had "bar patrol". It was raining that evening but since there is an attached garage, parking was easy and we stayed dry. I definitely recommend this restaurant without hesitation. I'm only sorry that it's no longer open on Sunday evenings.
We appreciate your amazing review and look forward to seeing you again soon!
Thomas was great. We started off with terrific drinks and a wonderful pizza and buratta as appetizers. Followed by great chicken parm, ribs, and salmon entrees. All served perfectly.
We're so glad to hear you had a 5-star experience with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon
There service was outstanding! Our server was fabulous. The food however was not great. Some things worked and done didn’t but overall everything lacked spices and flavor. It was disappointing.
3rd time there. We had a great time. Out of town business guests. Bar keeper was spot on with scotch recommendations (not a scotch drinker) to start, wine paring perfect and food fantastic. I had the chicken dish and recommended sides. We also shared an antipasti and calamari appetizer and side salad. Total price was close to $200 for 3 persons with stout drinks and wine. Not to bad. Would thought cost would have been closer or over $300.
We're so happy to hear that you all enjoyed your meal with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
Our Server Shannon was Excellent. Mussels app was awesome big mussels (Prince Frederick?) in chunky tasty tomato base, one of the entrees was salmon-cheese stuffed ravioli in a cheese cream sauce with shrimp and scallops!! Daughter loved the tiramisu cheesecake.
We're happy to hear you enjoyed your meal with us! Look forward to having you and your family back!
Only one server on during lunch, which she told us. Should have a least two. Waited for beverage order and check.
We appreciate your feedback and we hope to see you again soon!
A great time. I treated myself earlier in the week and went back with a friend. I had the 2 for $20, Pinot Grigio and margherita pizza. Delish. Went. Returned I got the pasta (no pics). I also got dessert. Vanilla and strawberry gelato with Nutella filled Canoli. Amazing. I will be returning.
We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed both your experiences with us and we look forward to having you back soon!
Love taking my clients here, great food and great atmosphere!
