This place has the best pizza! The cannelloni was amazing! Everything is so good. They are always busy and the wait can be long if you don't have a reservation. However, on a nice day, you can sit outside on the patio and drink with e from one of the neighboring wineries.

Service: when people bring a bottle of wine in, offer to open it to get it breathing. Don’t go get glasses and water after the guest asks you to open the wine first.
When guests say they brought the wine bottle in from across the street, don’t charge $15 to open it. Especially since you’re not charging corkage fees for the two tasting rooms next door.
When people share a salad and then main entrees, don’t charge a $2 split fee for the salad arriving on two plates. It’s nickel and dining.
Poor service, meh food.
Won’t be back.

Service was outstanding, it was very busy and we had a table of 12 and the wait staff didn't miss a beat! Food was fabulous, better than I expected! The place is small and the teams there hustle to give you a great dining experience!

Super garlicky and salty. I have travelled Italy from North to South, East to West and tried all kinds of Italian foods and I will never get used to the amount of garlic and salt that Americans use on all kinds or foods. I could not sleep after dinner at Vivi restaurant, the food tasted good, but I do not recommend if you have problem with excess of garlic and salt. Such a pity!

Food and service was good but ambiance was ok. Pizzas were a good value. We went there instead of eating at a local winery and it was a good decision.

I liked the environment with the options to sit indoors or outdoors. The menu has lots of good options. I ordered a pizza and found it to be slightly doughy or maybe a bit too much cheese. I prefer my thin crust pizza to be more crispy. Other than that, the service was great and the prices were reasonable. I'd recommend it for sure.

We got a couple of pizzas and a salad to share amongst 5 women. Everything was delicious, and the food was plentiful. There was a mix up with one of the pizzas, not gluten free when we had ordered gluten free. Server was nice enough to make it right by getting a new gluten free pizza to us and to not charge for the pizza.

Greeter was not present upon arrival. Our reservation yielded bad seating which was not made better by the loud environment and large families which took away from our special occasion. Antipastas were honestly better than the pizzas themselves, which were soggy crusted and resembled pita bread more than a fast fire wood oven pizza. Came and tried it on a recommendation but will not be returning. The only highlight was the service was attentive after we were seated.

This is one of the few places I've found in the area that do a Carbonara that is egg yolk based, and not polluted with cream. It's delicious, and worth the trip just for that!

Of course the football game was on and the Patriots won. On one hand I liked watching the game and on the other the cheering was a bit much but understandable and didn't take away from the meal. It was totally delicious both the crab ravioli and the pizza which I sampled. The wine we ordered was a very affordable chianti which is now my wife's new favorite wine.

Vivi never disappoints. We've eaten there or ordered from there at least a dozen times over the past couple years. All seven of us enjoyed our meals ranging from pasta to salad to pizza. Service was friendly and attentive despite the place being packed on Christmas eve. A bit noisy, but this is one of our favorite go-to restaurants.

We normally love this place, but we came last weekend with friends and they told us that due to some scheduling conflicts and catering, they could only serve pizza and some appetizers, which is about 35-40% of the menu...and none of the things we really came to eat. It was a big disappointment, especially because the restaurant did nothing to try and make up for it...and then it got worse when the table literally right next to us, who sat down at nearly the same time...was eating multiple pasta and seafood/meat dishes. Talk about adding insult to injury.

We reserved a table for 6 and came early. They accomodated us promptly which was nice. The restaurant itself was smokey from the pizza oven/kitchen and when we left we all smelt like the restaurant! The food entree was very bland with no flavor whatsoever (de mare, salmon farfalle and vongole). They really need to work on incorporating flavor in their dishes if they want to sustain business.

We have dinner there very often. We love that it is next to Gorman's and Patterson's Winery. I love their Spaghetti and meatballs. Fantastic! They need to get control of the situation with the flies inside their restaurant. My Pasta with seafood this weekend was a little bland. The service folks are very nice, but they seem very overworked and more staff is needed.

We've been to Vivi Pizzeria many times and always had a good meal. However, this experience wasn't one of the best although our server was absolutely amazing. We dined inside and at 5PM the dining room was filled with smoke (like a fog) from the pizza ovens. The air conditioner started dripping on a couple of us, so maybe that's why it was so foggy inside and we got moved to a better table. When we arrived there was a large loud group in the dining room and we couldn't hear each other - the acoustics aren't great if there are a lot of people.

On the upside the owner apologized for the air conditioning issue and gave us some wonderful freshly made mozzarella and tomato appetizers. The large noisy group left and we could actually hear each other. Their food wasn't as good as on previous visits but the server was one of the best that we've ever had. She made sure we were well taken care of . We'll go back again to see if this was an anomaly because it's in our neighborhood. If you're dining inside in the evening, beware there may be ventilation issues and you could end of up leaving smelling like fried oil and smoke.

Delicious food, great service, and great setting. Love to dine outdoors, so the heaters were nice, but as soon as the sun came out it was very comfortable. We had some pizzas, salad and pasta and dined family style. So much fun and we will be happy to go back. Solid place!
