About the restaurant
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).
we only use fresh in house made pastas and sauces.

We sat at the counter and I believe our waiter was Jordan. He was so so nice and the service was great. We had a wonderful evening

Uccellino [oo-che-LEE-no] is a modern restaurant inspired by the trattorias of Italy. We serve simple Italian dishes that highlight the qualities of distinct ingredients, both local and imported.

The arancini were divine, crisp coating and soft cheesy risotto inside. The three of us rated it the star of the dinner, followed closely by the agnolotti with pistachios and asparagus, each bite a complex and interesting flavour burst. We also ordered the ricotta crostini, cacio e pepe, and roasted scallops, all competently prepared.

About the restaurant
Sorrentino's West is an Italian cuisine restaurant. The décor of the restaurant is classy. The dim lit ambience of Sorrentino's West makes it a trendy place to hang out, catch some TV and enjoy delicious Italian food. The family friendly environment at Sorrentino's West gives the place an inviting vibe. The food at Sorrentino's West is scrumptious and some of the regularly ordered items on the menu include Calamari, Penne Arrabbiate, Prosuitto Panini, Butternut Ravioli, Tortellini and Lasagne. The most ordered item on the kid's menu is Spaghetti and Meatballs. Out of these food items, it is the Calamari which steals the spotlight. For desserts, Mango Berry Cheesecake seals the deal. Sorrentino's West has a bar too. The wine selection at the bar is pretty decent. The bar service is fast.

On May 14, my husband & I went to Sorrentino’s West for a belated Mother's Day dinner. We chose that day because of their "Pasta Tuesday" tradition, which is truly value for money. We ordered our usual - linguini pescatore for my husband and spaghetti alla carbonara for me - and we enjoyed every bite. We also had the Sorrentino salad which was delicious. There was so much food, that we took half home for a second meal a couple of days later. Our favourite server, Rafat, looked after us with his usual efficient friendliness and care, with special attention to my various food sensitivities. We ended our meal with a complimentary tiramisu which we shared and which was gratis because we were celebrating a special occasion. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. The food, service, and ambience simply couldn’t be beat.

About the restaurant
For over 25 years, the Sicilian Pasta Kitchen has provided its guests with the highest level of quality and service. All the dishes are prepared with an emphasis on using the freshest, prime ingredients thus honouring our old-world Italian roots while incorporating a fresh new approach.
​Our dining area is simple yet sophisticated which caters to both the casual and the formal. We often host large parties such as office parties or birthdays (no we don't mind taking a group picture) as well as private functions. Many of our guests however, have been coming for years and we are very grateful for their continued patronage.
We have a charming downtown patio for those who like to enjoy the weather with their meal. We also provide free guest parking at the rear of the restaurant.
Whether you be Edmontonian, Sicilian or somewhere in between, we look forward to serving you. Buon appetito!

Everything was very good - the food, ambiance, service, value, etc. But we felt rushed. The food came too quickly and the server kept coming to clear our plates. We were in and out of there within an hour. Being with a family member from out of town, we would have liked to take our time and not feel like the staff wanted the table for someone else. We did make a reservation and expected to be there for about two hours. An hour for dinner, with a bottle of wine, is very fast. Slow it down if you want your customers to enjoy themselves. I would recommend only if you want a quick dinner.

Lovely get together with old friends. The atmosphere was very nice and it was quiet so we were able to chat and catch up. The service was very good and although we overstayed the lunch hour, no one was encouraging us to leave. The staff saw to our needs, we paid our bills and had tea and coffee till we were ready to leave. Overall it was a fantastic lunch.
