Vivo, located in Chicago, Illinois, offers a breathtaking atmosphere to enjoy traditional Italian favorites. The d�cor consists of brick walls, white tablecloths and the light noise in the dining room. For those looking for a venue for an event, Vivo provides private dining opportunities, as well as catering for weddings and rehearsals. Another unique fixture is Table 70, which is perched over the rest of the dining room for an intimate and romantic setting.
The lunch menu at Vivo consists of many types of pasta and sandwiches, including the popular eggplant sandwich with Buffalo mozzarella and a tomato basil sauce. Dinner is a more decadent menu, where you can enjoy New Zealand rack of lamb or the osso buco, which is a braised veal shank with mashed horseradish.
Vivo has been around quite a while, however, it is scheduled to close this week for good - therefore, I cannot recommend it.
Portions were great, food was good, seafood wasn't quite as fresh as I'd hoped it would be. All in all, it was good, not great. I really enjoyed the ambiance.
The food and service was very good. We did wait a bit for our waiter , who seemed to be more than a waiter, but he said they were having wifi issues and he more than made up for it. We had the beef carpaccio and beet carpaccio. They were very good. My husband said the beef just melted in your mouth. The beet was equally good with a great sales on top of both which made it a bit more food than I expected. He had the osso bucco and I had the eggplant Parmesan. It was very good, although I would have liked it to be a little less breaded and a little crisper but that's just me. I couldn't eat it all so had it boxed up to take home then forgot it....really ticked me off. I woke up wanting it! We shared the tiramisu and it was also very good. We took the waiters recommendation on wine and was not disappointed. Would have given the atmosphere a higher rating but it was extremely hot in the restaurant that night. Overall I would recommend it and would go back, this was our second but not last visit.
Excellent food, excellent drinks and excellent wine! The oil/cheese they bring out with bread was AMAZING! I would have bought a bottle of it if I could. We had never heard of this restaurant and were so happy we found it! We ate outside and it was bustling and awesome and fun! I would highly recommend Vivo's! We will be bringing other friends back there! :)
Very noisy, staff is inattentive, food ok, its more of a noisy lounge than a fine dining.
So many restaurants on West Radolph and by far this is the best! Terrific food, ambience and service. My husband and I eat out a lot, and can't say enough about this place! We'll definitely be back.
Great ambiance, great service, I'll continue to come back!
I reserved table 70 for our 8th wedding anniversary. The food was top notch, the ambiance was very romantic and the service was excellent! We will be coming bacvk the next time we are in Chicago. The entire neighborhood is a gem!
Delicious bread dipping sauce. Great pasta Bolognese and rigatoni
I had pasta and the sauce was excellent. I asked for grilled chicken to be added and it was grilled perfectly. The ambience was very nice and it wasn't overly crowded.
