About vivo ristorante - Westend
Edmonton, AB T6M 2W8
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
My Girlfriend and I went there for her birthday on January 25. We ordered the caesar salad that I have heard really good things about.. The lettuce was wilted. The other two appetizers Carpaccio and another one I can't remember what it was, they were good. The Fettuccine was served cold, not even luke warm, it was flat out cold. i made the waiter touch it and he couldn't believe it. It was my second time at Vivo and I must say the experience was not good at all. We ended up going to Famoso and had one of the best pizza's ever. I highly recomend the Cavoletti, it was to die for! We told the waitress that we left Vivo and came here and had a great meal, she must have told the manager and he came over and gave us a $25.00 gift card, I thought that was a nice touch, especially after I just finished paying for a wilted caesar salad!
Incredible roasted Caesar Salad similar to the legendary dish from what was Cafe de Ville. Pasta was very good. We'll ask if they have a corkage fee when booking next time. All bottle prices are well over +100% markups. Huge selection of international wines. Safe bet for a good meal.
First visit to Vivo, the food was way above average & the table service was great. We were placed by a cold drafty Window & although there were empty tables for the first hour we were there we did not get moved in spite of asking. Avoid window seats in winter!!
We went to Vivo for a birthday celebration and as usual, they didn't disappoint. Delicious food, impeccable service, and the boisterous atmosphere all served to make a memorable evening out and celebration.
For high quality Italian served family style (which means sharing dishes) Vivo cannot be beat in the Edmonton area.
Love love it! I brought a friend here for her birthday and Vivo did not disappoint. The caprese gnocchi and tenderloin were all fabulous! The fact that they use so many local suppliers is unreal makes it so easy to support these guys and the fresh in house pasta just spectacular. The service is always great smiling and genuinely happy to see you.
It was my husband's birthday and we had a date here in Vivo. It was our first time. The server was very pleasant. Since it was our first time, we didn't have any idea of how the portions were, but the servers were very helpful to make sure that we didn't have too much food. The servers guided us thru our experience. We had the Gnocchi, Filetto, Potatoes. All were to die for! The Gnocchi was so light. The Filetto Steak cooked to perfection and the Potatoes went well with the steak. At the end of the meal, we had a tiramisu. The single order was gigantic. My husband and I weren't able to finish up the dessert. We had some of the potatoes and the tiramisu packed to-go. Overall, we had an amazing experience in Vivo. We will definitely be back.
The food was great and the service was awesome . I never had a ceased salad like that ever in my life. It was unique and delicious. I find all the food there is unique and tasty. We enjoyed our food and time there. Mike did our service and he was checking us every time and he is so good.
Wow what a great experience! We had a show to catch so time was tight. I called ahead to pre-order our meals and the owner and staff went above and beyond to accommodate us. Not only was the food top notch, but the service was out of this world! Try them. You won't regret it.
We had a great server and we're given a very warm welcome when we arrived. The menu was explained very clearly to us. We had a group of 8, 2 who were vegans. Some of us had to sit near a window and that side of the table was pretty chilly. There was a nice variety of items for the vegans which was nice. Most of us found the food a bit bland but okay. The tiramisu was not too sweet, which was great, but tasted like the lady fingers were soaked in extremely diluted coffee.
Great restaurant for dining with faimily or a group for special occasions. All menu items are meant to be shared. Grilled Ceasar salad is the best in the city, and the fettuccine is delicious. We had the Sea Bass and the Rib Steak for our meats and both were done to perfection. Steak was very lean given the cut. Service is very good as well.
This is our third visit and Vivo was delicious as usual. Love the Caesar and Salumi e Formaggio. Our son would say their Fettuccine is the best. I found the Pollo to be a little dry but still favorable and always save room for the freshly made cookies. YUMMY!
