Our meals were very good. The restaurant was packed and the noise was a little over whelming.

Great place for delicious American Italian food. Especially love their calamari - tender and tasty. Portabello risotto is excellent. We dine here more than any other local restaurant - inside or takeout. They have outside tent but we haven't tried that yet. Food is always consistent and reliably good.

Been to the restaurant several times in the last few weeks as well done take out and in every experience, the food has been very tasty. While in the restaurant, service has been exceptional, courteous, cautious and timely. Highly recommend the Seafood Gorgonzola,a white creamy based sauce mixed with an abundance of seafood served over risotto. Delicious!

This place was great. Amazing food. Will have to monitor how often we go here or else we will have to walk here and back to burn the carbs off. We came here the other day for the first time and everything was great except for the extremely noisy table of four. There were about 8 other people in the dining area but you wouldn’t of thought so due to the racket they were making. Hopefully next time we come, they won’t be there.

This was the 4th time we have been to this restaurant. The only time we had food that was not over cooked was the first visit. The only redeeming quality was the service. It was very disappointing since it is highly recommended by a friend

Overall we were pleased with our dining experience at Vivo. The food was great, but not the best within that price range. The environment is very nice and the wait staff was very quick and respectful.

Vivo Italian Kitchen never disappoints. The bread was hot and delicious, the calamari appetizer was tender and very tasty, as was the soup. I had my absolute favorite, Veal Sinatra, which was the star of the show. Next time, veal piccata!

I made a reservation on this website I drove a distance to find out they was not seating outside .. I understand due to the conditions but if the restaurant was not doing the outside dining whY are they listed ? I drove a long distance and the guy at the front was not apologetic actually talk to me like I was stupid .. never again
