The restaurant is elegant, the staff are helpful and friendly, and the food was delicious. I would especially recommend the braised short ribs. We showed up without reservations on a rather busy night and they seated us without a problem.

A favorite of ours that never disappoints. We enjoy Vivo for special occasions and those times when you don't feel like cooking and want the best meal for your money. Everything on the menu is delicious; we've tried them all. Try the fresh meats and cheeses appetizer!
