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
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.
Always a great experience at Vivo (Westend).
Booked the private room for my father's birthday and we couldn't have been more pleased. The server knew all our names and the level of personalized service was outstanding!
Will consider the private room for a future corporate event as the room is equipped with a television.
My husband and I chose Vivo for our anniversary dinner on a Friday night. The food and service were amazing as usual. We chose some classics (all served family style) - Caprese, Fettucini and Bistecca. All were delicious! Always a great choice in my opinion.
The service was exceptional. My server was very helpful in recommending the popular favorites on the menu. The wait for the food was short. The food was out of this world, full of flavor and hot. A little on the pricey side but deffinetly well worth the taste.
The food here is above all expectations e very time I come here. Perfect for a date night. It's quiet and the atmosphere is cozy. The serving staff are all professional and very accomodationg making sure your experience is everything you'd want. There are zero complaints and never have been.
My favorite restaurant in Edmonton hands down!!
My first time at Vivo and I know it won't be my last. Food was fresh, well prepared, plenty and so tasty. The fettuccine alfredo was sublime, the best I have ever had anywhere. Could easily order it as my main course. Vivo has a dining style rather unique to an Italian cuisine restaurant. The menu categorizes the food into four separate courses. Both starters and pastas come in full and half orders and are all meant to be shared. The third course is meat or fish with the fourth course or category being a variety of vegetables. All meant to be shared. So for those of you checking the menu online, remember the prices reflect portions that are for sharing. The waiter explained the menu well and made some great recommendations. Please note that even with half orders we still ended up with left overs. We had the lamb platter along with the roasted carrot & beet medley. Absolutely the best food I have had in a long time!
Vivo is my son's favourite restaurant for pasta. It is made in house and so delicious. We were a party of 6 on this visit and celebrating 2 birthdays. The service is always warm and welcoming, the food is always outstanding. They source local ingredients. The caprese salad is stellar! We have visited this location several times since they opened and are never disappointed with the food or the service.
