This place by far exceeded my expectation from the moment I arrived until we left! I love when staff of a restaurant clearly has a passion for food and the food they have on their menu. Our waiter was so knowledgable and seemed genuinely excited for us to have a good experience and try things we may not normally try. I highly recommend this spot and will be returning for sure!

Excellent food! The menu is interesting with some standard items as well as unique. The octopus was particularly delicious paired with the mushroom appetizer. Ed was attentive as our waiter and the atmosphere is simple and charming. We will definitely go back.

Delicious food, knowledgeable staff, small but really great wine list and finally, love that it's a family run business. It's 25 mins outside Pitt and totally worth the drive!

First time back to Vivo since Covid hit. The food was great as always and the staff is friendly and attentive. Only a limited number of tables well spaced out making is comfortable in light of the current situation. Highly recommend visiting Vivo.

My husband and I just moved to town and we were particularly excited for our first date night to Vivo last weekend.

The food and drinks were top notch and the customer service was stellar. Vivo’s style is modern and trendy, yet its ambience is incredibly comfortable and inviting. We felt so very welcomed by the owners and their lovely family - which made the experience very special and to me - was a shining example of one of the many reasons why we moved to Sewickley - the community. We already made a reso for this upcoming weekend - the Vivo crew may need to get use to some new regulars 😉🥂

Food, Cocktails and Staff are outstanding! One new favorite restaurant. Baby Back Ribs and the Halibut were excellent! Thank you for providing outstanding food and service at a reasonable price. Keep up the great work and we will be there again soon with our friends! Great also for those who have food allergies.

Amazing meal! We had the lobster tail, carpaccio, burrata flatbread, and spicy meatball. All were delicious! The staff was great and the tables were distanced without feeling sterile. We came here a lot pre Covid and were so happy to be back!

The show at Vivo Kitchen has always been the effort and cooking of Sam and his influences throughout. Since Bellevue we have enjoyed his creativity in the kitchen. He is part of the core group of chefs we are pleased to support in Pittsburgh.
