Vivoli Cafe and Pizzeria
Great food and service
Our meal at Vivoli was perfect! They got everything right, and got us served & out of there within 45 minutes, so we could be on time for our tickets to see the play Frozen! I will absolutely keep going back to Vivoli!
FOUR FRIENDS HAD A GREAT DINNER AT VIVOLI. WE EACH HAD A DIFFERENT ENTREE AND ENJOYED THEM ALL. NO COMPLAINTS!
THE SERVICE WAS VERY NICE. WOULD RECOMMEND VIVOLI FOR A CASUAL EVENING.
Great food every time! I think our server was new, he was very nice but made numerous mistakes.
Very slow service and kitchen. Many items on the menu (sparkling and red wine) not in stock. Only had one type of red wine in stock in spite of eight or so options on the menu. Overall a pretty bizarre and uncomfortable experience. Place was uncomfortably hot.
Just perfect for a meal and glass of wine before Lau
Literally had to walk out after we sat at our table for almost 20 minutes without even being brought waters or checked on. Entire staff was incredibly rude and dismissive, even when we tried to flag them over. They said nothing to even apologize as we walked out. Will never return.
Great neighborhood treasure. Excellent food and service. Passed the test by the New York City relatives.
Delicious, many great choices. The server had perfect suggestions that all worked.
The food was delicious! The service was just fair, and it took awhile before we were served; I specifically asked for extra broth in my soup, and when the Cioppino came, there was actually less broth than usual! We had a hard time getting anyone's attention just to try to pay the bill. I'll go back there again, but hope the service is better next time. The previous time I was there with my parents, and the service was fantastic; I guess it's just a hit or a miss!
A wonderful experience. Their cioppino was probably one of the best, if not the best cioppino I've ever had in my life!
It was recommended by Colin at Hyatt Andaz for our 28th Anniversary dinner, it was awesome. It was lively yet intimate. Food was great and location was historic!
There's a really pleasant, happy energy to the place, mostly thanks to our very sweet server and the rest of the friendly staff who remain in full view from the open kitchen. That's half the reason why everyone I bring there falls in love with it. The other reason is the food. Chicken Ravioli With Pink Sauce And Mushrooms is still my jam, but the Clam Linguine, Penne With Salmon, and their Pizza are great choices too!
On this visit, I was presented with their new lunch menu in addition to their usual. I did spot some items that intrigued, but I couldn't resist what I had originally gone there craving: the Chicken Ravioli With Pink Sauce And Mushrooms. Delish as ever... and the service was charming as ever. Will try the new lunch menu anther time :-)
Good spot , food was good, quiet during early lunch
Another excellent dine! Their Chicken And Spinach Ravioli With Pink Sauce And Mushrooms?... ALL DAY LONG, PLEASE!!! Also, my dining partner said his Fettuccine Alfredo With Chicken was the best he'd had anywhere! Service was attentive and gracious as always.
Love this place! Love everything about it!! Not fancy digs, just cute, modest, cozy, but the food and service are first rate!!! Easily on par with some of the higher end Italian eateries I also frequent. Chicken And Spinach Ravioli With Pink Sauce And Mushrooms, OMG!!!!! Their Seafood Linguine is killer as well. I've also recently discovered their Caramel And Sea Salt Gelato. Uh-oh!
I am so comfortable eating at this restaurant. The food is amazing...the service is great, the waiters are very attentive and it has a wonderful ambience. The music is very romantic. It's it just nice to go out to eat and be able to hear your partner and have a fabulous meal.
Very nice, authentic feeling Italian restaurant, which is hard to come by these days. Chicken Picatta and Linguini and Clams were both very delicious, and while the strip mall it sits in isn't a great atmosphere, inside the restaurant is quaint, nice and authentic feeling. Perfect stop for dinner right before a comedy show across the street.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner with my friends. The service was spectacular. The food was very tasty!
The best Italian food I’ve had in LA!
Good as always.
Always a friendly relaxed atmosphere and the best Italian food in L.A.
I love this place and have gone here sporadically over the past decade. When it's busy, service is a bit rough, but the food more than makes up for it (it's really amazing food) - and the servers are really friendly. We were given a free glass of champagne due to the wait time. They're good people. I would definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys great Italian food.
Relaxed atmosphere. Friendly staff. Excellent menu and some really good wine. Will be going back
The food is delightful. The staff very friendly. It is comfortable and intimate, but does tend toward noisy when there are screaming children or a lot of customers.
Great Italian food at a great price!
Relaxed and friendly. Food cooked to perfection and there are a lot of choices
Great neighborhood restaurant with wonderful food. Really enjoy coming here and am so glad there's a restaurant in my neighborhood that is accessible, friendly and has wonderful food.
We love Vivoli! Consistently great food, very friendly service, reasonable prices, and cozy atmosphere.
We have dined at Vivoli many times, and I can honestly say we have never been disappointed in the least, always great food. We will return.....and return, and return, and return, etc......
We were a party of 8 and had a reservation in Open Table but when we arrived, they were a bit surprised. They didn't have the staff to serve so many people at one time. After we got to sit down, they took a good half hour to come to our table and get our drink order because they were short in staff. The pizza was excellent, beer was cold and staff super friendly. They need to get more servers thou. One of us order pasta. The presentation wasn't the best, and although it was good, you would expect something more outstanding form a restaurant run by Italians.
made a reservatio through open table, got there and the restaurant was closed.
Service was great and the folks working were very friendly. I was not impressed with the food quality.
Food was fabulous... best pizza I've had in a very long time! Our "server" was awesome, felt like a guest in a private home !
Great mom and pop restaurant. Amazing food.
I love this place. Great food and great service. I usually go here before or after seeing a comedy show across the street.
The seafood risotto is superb. Service attentive and spot on. Wine selection very good. Glad they open for lunch again!
Parking is limited; service was a little slow as only one server; large portions of food and taste was good; externsive wine list, limited beer list; convenient to pre or post event at Laugh Factory in Hollywood
They had a pre set menu which I was unaware of and the selection was not really that great. Very overpriced (sure there was lobster; but it wasn’t thaaaaat good). I wish I would have been made aware of the fact that there was a pre selected menu (at $65/person). The place was a very small set up and had very few tables. And pizza wasn’t even available! To be honest, probably wont go back
The food is always excellent, the service is great and the menu and wine list are great.
Pasta was properly cooked, as usual. Service was oddly off. Had to ask three times for bread and water. The restaurant was not super-busy, but the wait staff seemed distracted by tasks other than table service. Still, it's easy parking, good food, and excellent value.
