"We had dinner at Vivo on February 6, 2016. We saw an afternoon play and then arrived for dinner at 5:30. At 5:30 we were probably the second couple to be seated for dinner. Quickly the restaurant began to fill up. Dinner was spectacular. The homemade pasta had a nice firm texture and the sauce was delicious. My wife had swordfish with mixed vegetables. She thought the vegetables could have been a meal by themselves. The homemade sorbet was extremely flavorful. The service was exceptional. While not being overbearing the wait staff was very attentive in making sure everything was okay and if we needed anything else. The lighting provided a romantic backdrop for a wonderful evening. I highly recommend this restaurant"

"Special dinner for our one year anniversary, the service was phenomenal, the food was even better and they even brought out a complementary dessert that had "happy anniversary" written in syrup on the plate-I had mentioned it was our anniversary but had no clue they would do that which just topped off the whole meal. 13/10 would recommend. Thank you Vivo!!!"

"The food was pretty good/average for Italian food. I had pasta but maybe the steak or salmon would have been a better choice. I did not like that we were seated so close to the table next to us and that we were so close to the door. It wasn't a comfortable spot to enjoy dinner."

"I'm new to Chicago and Vivo was recommended as a spot near to where I'm temporarily living in the West Loop. I had a friend visiting from out of town and we went for dinner. Even being there during restaurant week, there was no sense of being rushed. I couldn't be more pleased - the food was excellent, service was friendly and prompt, atmosphere was warm and inviting. My husband is coming up to visit next week and I've already made reservations for us to go back. Highly recommend."

"We stopped in during Restaurant Week, and enjoyed a great evening of food and wine. I wouldn't call this a great spot for kids, but ours was welcomed with plenty of great food options. Our meals were wonderful, and started with a great red wine and finished with a delicious desert. The service was the standard in the area, excellent. Definitely recommend going here during the week, so you can fully enjoy the meal, and not be crowded with all the other foodies from out side the neighborhood."

"Love this place already, but recently sat at Table 70 and it made the experience that much better. Special menu and very private for up to 6 people. The food is always amazing and their olive oil dip for the bread basket is the best in the city."

"My husband and I have been dining at Vivo for over 16 years, and we are always impressed with the creative food choices, service and the relaxing atmosphere. The beet salad is so tasty and a great size that won't fill you up prior to your entree. A menu favorite of mine is the Rigatoni. It has been on the menu for as long as I can remember, and every couple of visits, I have to order it. I think of it as a "comfort pasta" and it is SO VERY TASTY!!! The veal milanese and Scottish salmon are two other dishes we enjoy. If you are looking for a romantic evening for date night, call and reserve table 70...you will not be dissappointed!"

"This was our first visit and we loved everything about it. Service was EXCELLENT -- but it was a Monday night and they were not crowded -- so not sure how it is on the weekend. Great variety on their menu. Pastas are all homemade. Had a ravioli special that was delicious. Also the wood grilled shrimp was just perfect! Can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu. Great wine list also! Definitely recommend!"

"I went here for my 29th bday dinner and Vivo did not disappoint! Great space, ambiance, service, and food! I will be coming here again and would most definitely recommend as a nice dinner/date spot."

"Went there with a friend. He ordered the chicken vesuvio. I ordered the eggplant parmesan. We were informed that the chicken would take 25 minutes, we said fine. I think that they also cooked the eggplant for the same amount of time as it was hard as a rock. Nice looking place. Doubtful if I would go back."

"Wonderful place. So romantic inside - all tables lit with candles. Food is great and the service was excellent. We have the signature Vivo dish - gnocchi with truffles. We split the dish since its so rich but it was wonderful. Bread and their dipping oil are fantastic too.
My only complaint is the valet services for the restaurant. We pulled up and waited for a valet who eventually came. He drove our car literally 2 spaces down to park, and then made my husband meet him at the car to give back our key. Apparently you have to get your own car after! Nice business for $14 for doing absolutely nothing. No tip for them! Will try harder to find parking on the street next time, otherwise I'm not sure we'd return because of the valet service."

"A very lackluster NYE. Food sub-par, even with limited menu. Ordered an array of pasta, shanks, chicken. One worse than the next (my pappardelle with oxtail ragu was quasi frozen, sent back and was then returned swimming in a moderately hot soup of red sauce). We should have stayed at Maude's or Bar Siena. Vivo was a thumbs down."

"We came for dinner before a show at City Winery. We did nit know they had a special dinner for NYE, and were not prepared for a 4 course meal. The waiter understood and said we could order off the special menu a la carte. Gluten free pasta was actually good (a rarity) and gnocchi Vivi excellent. Nice adjustment by waitstaff and good food. Will be back"
