I went to Italy with my fiance in August, we were craving authentic Italian cuisine and found Vivos. The place was very busy but the service was wonderful. Unfortunately the prices were crazy. At $12.00 for a 6 oz glass of wine (the cheapest glass)...More

Food was fine. The service is lacking and expectations of a substantial tip?! I thought a tip was earned not expected. Will not be back

A dinner for two families (4 adults and 4 children) cost us a pretty penny - almost $400 later. Of course, we knew that it was going to be an expensive meal but what we didn't expect was a 20% mandatory tip - yes 20%!...More

Well where do we start with Vivo! It's most definitely a one of a kind atmosphere and setting with the open-concept theme that shouts sophistication and shows off the clean, professional kitchen environment. There is no messing around in the kitchen which is run by...More

Probably a good idea to make reservations in advance, as we did. Fills up very quickly. A few problems we found was that there is no noise abatement, it gets very loud . Each table is packed in tightly and you have to talk over...More
