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).

No tables available
Had to sit up at the bar
It is always nicer to sit at the table near the fireplace for a special occasion as the ambience is better and less noisy from the kitchen
Food is consistently delicious

Their grilled Caesar salad, fois gras, fettucini Alfredo, lobster risotto, and Brussels sprouts are all amazing!

It was very enjoyable. Food is very tasty but overpriced for small portions. Given the platter service we were seated at a small table for 4 people which made things a bit awkward and crowded.

The chicken was very dry and seemed overcooked. The asparagus were burnt, probably that is what happened when grilled.

Unfortunately we did not mention this to the waiter until we had finished and he said it would have been replaced. That is my problem as this was the first time I have ever complained in a restaurant. He did offer and we accepted a dessert which was fantastic.

Vivo is consistent with the quality of the food - I know because we usually order the same thing each time, it is the best fettuccini anywhere. Service is very good and very generous. This has been a favourite place of ours to go for date night

We went to celebrate our anniversary and as always everything was beyond superb! We have been to so many restaurants throughout edmonton and Vivo is by far the best in the city. Prices may ride high, but the food and service is literally worth every cent. We will always celebrate our special days here!

Was our 45th wedding anniversary Had a table by the fire place. The server was nice and a good sense of humour. At the end he brought us a sample of each desert as a celebration of our occasion, even though we never ordered desert. The chicken parmigiana was excellent. All the food was excellent and lots. We brought home half in a doggy bag.

We did enjoy the meal while we ate it, but the 2 of us who had the Sea Bass were both very sick that night. It might have been something else but what are the chances.

Very nice restaurant. Our first time there. We ordered way too much food, however it was so good we couldn't stop ourselves. We now have leftovers :). Great service, our server (sorry I forgot his name) was excellent at helping us choose what we wanted to eat and drink. We will be coming back again.

Thank you

Food is absolutely a work of art! Gorgeous to look at & of course eat. Quality of food is consistently fantastic. Tables were really far apart so it was comfortable knowing you had your own space. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary & it was kind of unusual that this wasn’t even mentioned by our server. I guess this doesn’t have to happen but it is always nice to have special occasions recognized.

We arrived early for our reservation and we're seated quickly. Waiter was polite and friendly. Food was delicious and also served quite quickly. Wife and I went there to celebrate our wedding anniversary and we were given a complimentary dessert. So glad this location is still open. The Branzino (sea bass) and Fettuccine were absolutely pristine!

Brussels sprouts were the best we have had there and the short rib required only a fork and an appetite.

Vivo is one of our favourite places to go when dining out. The food is unparalleled and if you leave unsatiated or unsatisfied, that is on you. The main dining floor is sparse due to the spacing regulations, but make sure you get a reservation for a dining experience that you will remember. Service is prompt, conversational and pleasant.

Like all dining establishments, they are on a lifeline, do not let this go under by living on fast food. Treat yourself, after these past four months, you have earned it!

So today was a horrible experience for us. We checked the menu before making a reservation because we only get a date night once in a blue moon. We got all dressed up to go knowing it was on the other side of the city. We’re looking forward to our dinner. Once getting there we had Jordan as our server (who by the way was excellent). We ordered our food. But unfortunately Jordan came back saying the short ribs were not available. He attempted twice to talk to the manager in requesting the meal we had because we looked at the menu prior and came back saying the manager said the short ribs didn’t arrive for the day (even though someone at another table had just ordered this. Anyways Jordan was kind enough to let us know he was going to get the manager. We waited another 20 mins for the manager to come to us. Connor (the manager) came to our spot and made us tell the story again wasting another 10 mins only to tell us he was sorry and there was NOTHING he could do. I then asked him why couldn’t at least on of our drinks get compt. He apologized then said no that couldn’t happen but he was sorry for our experience. We ended up leaving an hour into our reservation hungry and frustrated. By the time we left we couldn’t get into another restaurant. Horrible experience because of Connor. Never again.
