About vivo ristorante - Westend
vivo is where Italian comes alive. We relish the enthusiasm and joy with which the traditional Italian meal is prepared and delivered, and seek to recreate that experience for every guest. Our open kitchen showcases our chefs preparing fresh and local ingredients.
When you join us for dinner, expect it to be a relaxing evening lasting a couple hours over several piatti (courses). Your table comes alive when we present a variety of large offerings on platters or bowls within easy reach of all.
A classic Italian pranzo (dinner) usually beings with a variety of antipasti (hot and cold appetizers), followed by one or two primi (usually a hot pasta, risotto, gnocchi or zuppa). Next your table will share a secondi (entrees) served on a platter combined with your choice of contorni (vegetable side dishes). Italians often complete their meal with un dolce, un caffe, or un digestivo (dessert, espresso, liqueur or grappa).

vivo ristorante - Westend Ratings and Reviews
The service was exceptional. My server was very helpful in recommending the popular favorites on the menu. The wait for the food was short. The food was out of this world, full of flavor and hot. A little on the pricey side but deffinetly well worth the taste.
The food here is above all expectations e very time I come here. Perfect for a date night. It's quiet and the atmosphere is cozy. The serving staff are all professional and very accomodationg making sure your experience is everything you'd want. There are zero complaints and never have been.
My favorite restaurant in Edmonton hands down!!
My first time at Vivo and I know it won't be my last. Food was fresh, well prepared, plenty and so tasty. The fettuccine alfredo was sublime, the best I have ever had anywhere. Could easily order it as my main course. Vivo has a dining style rather unique to an Italian cuisine restaurant. The menu categorizes the food into four separate courses. Both starters and pastas come in full and half orders and are all meant to be shared. The third course is meat or fish with the fourth course or category being a variety of vegetables. All meant to be shared. So for those of you checking the menu online, remember the prices reflect portions that are for sharing. The waiter explained the menu well and made some great recommendations. Please note that even with half orders we still ended up with left overs. We had the lamb platter along with the roasted carrot & beet medley. Absolutely the best food I have had in a long time!
Vivo is my son's favourite restaurant for pasta. It is made in house and so delicious. We were a party of 6 on this visit and celebrating 2 birthdays. The service is always warm and welcoming, the food is always outstanding. They source local ingredients. The caprese salad is stellar! We have visited this location several times since they opened and are never disappointed with the food or the service.
I would recommend Vivo to everyone I know. The food is phenomenal and the atmosphere is second to none. Our serving staff was outstanding as well with fine attention to our needs. Come with and empty stomach because the portions are not only large but also a great value. We wanted desert but there was no way by the time we were done with dinner and appetizers. Perfect place to take a date or for an evening out with friends/family. The quality of the food was exceptional and you can cut your steak with a butter knife.
There is nothing negative to say about this restaurant
Truly the best dining experience we have ever had the food was amazing. We really didn't even imagine it would be that good. Our server was very friendly and a big help to ensure we didn't order too much as everything was meant to be shared. All in all it was a great dining experience and we would highly recommend this to anyone looking for great food and amazing environment.
Thank you for the night.
We have been to this Vivo location several times and have always received outstanding service and great food. Our server Alan is amazing and does his job very professionally. We couldn't have asked for a better restaurant experience. We look forward to coming back. Thank you
