About vivo ristorante - Westend
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).

vivo ristorante - Westend Ratings and Reviews
We had a fantastic time! The portions were plentiful and easily shared between the four of us. We enjoyed everything we ordered - the Caesar salad is a must! However, the dessert, (Nutella brownie) was slightly disappointing as an end to our meal we’ve been told to try the homemade cookies next time! We will! Definitely will be back.
The pasta with seafood was excellent; however, the sea bass was overcooked and had a charred flavour, as well as the prosciutto wrapped asparagus. The asparagus was completely charred, with the burnt side turned down. When we told the server, he apologized and said he would tell management. He then gave us a dessert board we didn’t want. This used to be our go-to restaurant for our anniversary or to go with friends. We would always order the sea bass on prior occasions, which should melt in your mouth.
Excellent dining experience, great food, great wine, awesome waiter! I booked reservations online for a date night for my wife and myself. We enjoyed it very much but would recommend going with a group of 4-6 people. The menu and restaurant is set up for a more social outing. We will be back for sure and be bringing more people
Overall the food was amazing but the server was lacking personality and hospitality. Service did not match the amazing food on the plate. Server was unclear about portion sizes and made it difficult to envision what was coming out and there wasn't enough food for 4. Better clarifications are needed. Instead of listening to customers wants, she made her own choice of direction.
Can't thank the wait staff enough for the wonderful service. Very helpful and accommodating with allergies and children. Food, as always, was amazing. It does get a bit loud when the restaurant is full but we arrived early and it was better. Overall a great experience and we will return.
Our server Alan did a fantastic job. The restaurant was busy lots of energy a little hard to have conversation for 5 people but the experience was great. The family style service was exactly what we wanted as it gives everyone a chance to try everything. Food was fantastic!! Would absolutely go again.
Fantastic service (thanks Pat as you really consistently continue to be on top of your game when it comes to remembering guests and what they like and how they want to be treated), great food - loved the pasta and sea bass and new chicken dish. Very special evening as we got to meet up with good friends and share in all the dishes and conversations. I would recommend VIVO if you’re interested in having a great dinner with those you love.
Another great evening at Vivo. This restaurant is well-managed, the staff are exceptionally knowledgeable and seem to enjoy what they are doing. Highly recommended for the service and food. I love it and always take out of town visitors here for a special experience.
Delicious as always!!!! I will always go back.
It is a bit on the expensive side so I don’t go as often I would like. For two people it cost us over 160. However we each had one drink but the drink was 16 each. But even if you take that out it was still close to 130 and we had small salad, small pasta, then the tenderloin... no sides and no desert..
So if I were to suggest anything it would be to dial down how pricey some things are especially since the meats only come with meat and no sides.
