Italian
vivo is where Italian comes alive. We relish the enthusiasm and joy with which the traditional Italian meal is prepared and delivered, and seek to recreate that experience for every guest. Our open kitchen showcases our chefs preparing fresh and local ingredients.

When you join us for dinner, expect it to be a relaxing evening lasting a couple hours over several piatti (courses). Your table comes alive when we present a variety of large offerings on platters or bowls within easy reach of all.

A classic Italian pranzo (dinner) usually beings with a variety of antipasti (hot and cold appetizers), followed by one or two primi (usually a hot pasta, risotto, gnocchi or zuppa). Next your table will share a secondi (entrees) served on a platter combined with your choice of contorni (vegetable side dishes). Italians often complete their meal with un dolce, un caffe, or un digestivo (dessert, espresso, liqueur or grappa).
we only use fresh in house made pastas and sauces.

    We went for an early birthday/Valentine’s Day date, and once again is was nothing but top notch every step of the way. The food is fantastic. Every employee working there is friendly and courteous. And the chef’s do an amazing job in both the food preparation and presentation. 10/10 once again, highly recommend. For an even more immersive experience I recommend sitting at the counter/bar, which allows you to view the chefs in action as you dine.

    So happy to have found a place like this on the west end! We sat at the chef’s table (bar top overlooking the kitchen), and I was worried it wouldn’t be as nice of an experience but we really enjoyed it! Service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. We had arancini for an appetizer (delicious!), linguine (amazing), ribeye (cooked absolutely perfect, soooo good), and the chocolate torte (not my fav, but the sorbet and garnishes were great). Will definitely be back! It is pricy but it beats driving and parking downtown!

    Delightful evening celebrating a birthday. We shared lamb, sea bass and tenderloin. Began with Ceasar salad and Gnudi, ended with a complimentary Tiramisu.

    The focaccia was some of the most amazing I’ve had but I didn’t enjoy how they served the oil and balsamic in a bowl. I poured it onto a plate and we were able to get some oil and vinegar on the bread much better. I couldn’t taste the grape must and found their balsamic tasted bitter and cheap. The Gnudi pasta and Chilean sea bass beat expectations and were incredible. Perfectly cooked and flavours and textures were outstanding. The sides seemed a little over priced for what they were. The staff was exceptional as well. I didn’t have to ask for a refill once, they went above and beyond, placing flowers I brought beforehand on the table. Overall probably one of the best date settings in Edmonton. Beautiful restaurant. Would probably return

    A great place for really good food, served family style. Had New Year's Eve dinner there with my wife and we loved it. Service was very good, notwithstanding the NYE crush. The carpaccio was excellent, as was the lamb, but the real all-star was the tiramisu! Undoubtedly the best tiramisu I have ever had. It's best to go with someone who has similar tastes in food as you though, as it's served family style. We will definitely be back.

    Our meal was very good. We ordered a lot. We had 3 pasta dishes and 2 veg dishes on top of our meat and appie. There wasn’t anything that we didn’t enjoy. My favourite item are the arancini balls. So darn good. Our server was good but didn’t seem to check on us much. Not a big problem but there were times I would have ordered a drink but it saved me a few bucks not ordering alcohol so that worked out fine. There was cold air blasting down on us but I didn’t bother to say anything. So I am not complaining about it. Just before we left hot air was clearing so for further reference, I think I would mention it next time. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and everyone.

    We celebrated my husband's birthday here, 4 adults and 3 kids (7 and younger). I was concerned once we got in about the kids but we had a great first experience at this restaurant. The food was great, our main server was exceptional. She explained the menu very thoroughly to us and offered suggestions. A few of the staff even interacted with the kids which was nice. Overall a really good experience. I would definitely return.

    It was my first time at this restaurant, and it definitely won’t be the last. I asked for the best seats in the house when I get my reservation and I got just that. The whole experience was amazing, especially sitting on the countertop interacting with the chefs. Our server Emily was so professional and made our experience even better. She walked us through the menu and even gave us great suggestions I would come back just off of her service. The greeting piece of steak was the cherry on top. The ambiance of the restaurant/ chefs counter was definitely my highlight. I would totally recommend this restaurant to all my friends/family.

    Eight of us were able to get together last evening. It was the first time in a year we all were able to meet up. I am the picky / ‘foodie’ one of the group so it is usually left to me to choose the venue. I chose Vivo this time and I am so pleased that I did. Vivo was an excellent choice. The menu is set up so that you can order ‘family style’ for the table or individually. 6 of us ordered family style and 2 ordered separately due to a gluten intolerance. The server made sure that we had enough food for the table to enjoy without having a bunch of leftovers. As it turns out, we all managed to finish off every dish. It was fantastic! I would say 6 of the 8 guests would definitely go back. The menu wasn’t super gluten friendly so the gluten free folks may not be as interested in returning. The entire experience was top notch. Our server was knowledgeable and professional too which adds to the positive experience.

    We decided to celebrate our anniversary on this beautiful nice restaurant and let's start with the restaurant is very nice and beautiful I really like that the kitchen is open viewed and whatnot, the service was good could of been a bit better but over all it was good. The reason for the lower rating is due to the main course food. We first ordered a entre with was the carpaccio which was very very good, then we ordered the gnocchi which were very very very good, well be thinking of them for a while, but then we order the steak and we'll it was good to be honest, I like my steak medium rare to rare and the first time it came out medium, they remade a new one and the manager came with it and also apologized for it which was great, but again the steak came out medium and even the manager said it was wrong. We still ate it because I didn't want to waste food but it was disappointing. The manager did come to us and gave us a gift card to come back so I'll hopefully be returning soon to give it a second try

    Good meal, but I felt the bill was excessive for what we got - 2 people, 1 bottle of wine , over $200. Entrees are 'family' style so advertised for 2 people to share, but could be easily eaten by one.

    Visiting from out of town with friends who had frequented here in the past. To say we were blown away by the food and service would be an understatement. This place needs to be on your bucket list for Italian dining. I will dream about the fettuccini, carpaccio and short rib until I can make it back there again. Thanks again Dean for the great service!
