Vivolo Reviews List

Vivolo

Vivolo, the family name, long associated with fine dining and Italian cuisine, is located at 140 east 74th street, New York. Vivolo, established in 1977 by owner Angelo Vivolo, is nestled in a charming 1875 townhouse occupying two floors.

You enter into a rich English redwood paneled dining room and antique oak bar with a working fireplace. Ceilings beamed with dark wood create an overall intimate, friendly and romantic atmosphere. A "café" alcove offers several secluded tables or the perfect setting for dinners for 10.

The second floor of Vivolo has the look of a turn-of-the-century parlor with a gold leaf trimmed ceiling and working fireplace. The parlor floor is also a favorite for private parties.

"awesome food-- simple, elegant and delicious. décor and ambiance are nice-- understated and quiet . staff super professional and courteous. took my 13 year-old and a colleague there for lunch after visiting the frick collection and was pleasantly surprised that my teen actually liked what he ordered. that in itself says a lot about the food."

"It's an UES shrine to civility marked by a lovely, wood paneled room. It's a rare, perfect place for conversation. Everything else is okay to good. None of those serving our table spoke enough English to get the orders right."

"This is a great restaurant and a must if you are on the upper eastside. Angelo Vivolo has been in business since 1977 and that speaks for itself. We go to the restaurant every time we are in NYC!"

"Wend to Vivolo on the spur of the moment after visiting the Met's new Breuer galleries on 75th and Madison. We didn't know where to go afterward, but OpenTable offered this as a choice and after reading reviews we took a shot. The food was excellent, so that was the main thing. We were slightly disappointed there wasn't room in the rustic main floor dining room, but the second floor space is also charming and a little quieter. There was a large group celebrating, so we always came in second in service, but they actually handled it well and we were never kept waiting long. Mainly, we were really pleased with our food. I started with the Ruchetta salad, with peaches, candied walnuts and and Gorgonzola and my husband had the baked clams. Both were yummy. The real star for me was the perfectly cooked calf's liver and onions and my husband loved his veal scaloppini. The whole evening made for a terrific date night. We'll definitely go back."
