    We are in Pittsburg about once a year and this will be at the top of our list. Terrific experience. The service was the best feature. Our waiter was super attentive with water, drinks and recommendations. The tastes here are all A+ We spend 8 months of the year in Winter Park, Fl and summers in Portland Maine and enjoy eating out about 3x a week. And Vitos would be in our rotation regularly if we lived closer. Give it a go!

    We were a party of 6. Food was very good and service even better. Wine list simple and well curated. The only downsides, but these were significant, were the noise level and the draft. It was nearly impossible to converse with anyone other than the person next to you. When trying to speak with anyone across the table, there was a lot of “Can you repeat that” and “I didn’t hear that”. Our table was next to the door. Although there is an enclosed vestibule separating the outside and the entry to the restaurant, when that outside door opened (often), it was very cold. Not exactly sure how to address these two items but I suppose it can be done.

    The typical outstanding evening at Vivo. Always excellent. Great service. Loved everything from the starters, wine, sparkling and flat water, to the dessert and coffee. Vivo is a critical part of the Sewickley dining scene, the best of the village.

    Noisy to the point of discomfort. Food was over cooked and bland…everything from the salad to the chicken - had to ask for a sauce to make it palatable- to my dry duck leg. Won’t be returning.
