Italian
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).
we only use fresh in house made pastas and sauces.

    It was our first time dining there and we had a great experience. Our server, Tatum was very helpful and gave great suggestions on how to order. The food was excellent. We ordered an appetizer to begin with and then ordered a pasta, veggie side and a meat. It was definitely enough food for 2 people to share. We conclude the meal with the gelato. Also split a bottle of wine. As it was a Thursday evening, inside the restaurant was not very busy, but the patio outside seemed to have a steady crowd.

    We have enjoyed Vivo for many years, however I doubt we will be back anytime soon. While Vivo has always been on the expensive side, the quality of the food and service made it worth it. On this last visit we noted that prices have increased markedly. We realize that restaurant costs have increased, however, some of the current prices seem unjustifiably high. For example, 30+ dollars for a salad for two people, $55-60 for four people. The bread and olive oil that used to be complimentary is now $9 for two. While portions are generous and meant for sharing and the quality is very good, there are far better high end Italian restaurants in Edmonton at a lower price point. We don’t mind paying a premium for a nice meal, but at some point it becomes excessive. We fear that if Vivo is not careful, they will price themselves put of business. That would be a loss for Edmonton, because Vivo has a great concept with high quality food and service.

    We enjoyed the Caesar Salad and some Focaccia Bread to start, then the Sacchetti to share. Everything was outstanding. Chef Medi was kind enough to come and say hello and his cooks were all busy and enjoying themselves. Definitely recommend Vivo to anyone.

    We ended up reserving patio seating, and it was worth it! The location did not have a lot of traffic which made the patio experience better. I usually don't go to patios because they often have high foot traffic & I just get bothered by it. In Vivo, their patio is secluded enough that you get to have peaceful conversations with your group even when there are people at the other tables. The restaurant is not hard to find and there are enough parking spaces too. Their food was also amazing and I definitely felt full after.

    Came in for a reservation for brunch for my son's birthday. We were initially sat in the dining room facing the kitchen. I did not like that table so we asked if we could go outside. The staff obliged, no problem. We were the only ones sat on the patio which is fine. Was a little bit windy but that was OK you. Music was too loud for my son's liking. Food came and looked appealing. He had the eggs Benedict with beef (was really good) and I wanted to try the Italian Sandwich. It was OK 3 5/5 stars as I found it a bit salty for my liking and wished I had gotten more mini potatoes- they were awesome! Service was great 5/5 as our waiter was very nice and friendly. We liked him ! We would come back but would try different things on the menu. Cool little Italian restaurant in a nice Edmonton neighborhood.

    Went for Father’s Day dinner. Not a great experience compared to past meals here. Food was much saltier than we remembered. Price for certain items was high, $55 for a large caesar salad. 20% automatic gratuity was added, which seemed excessive.

    The best Caesar salad I have ever had! Seriously. You have to try it. We both had pasta as well and they were both incredible- super rich and flavourful. My only complaint was is that I wish they had a more in depth wine list. There is only a few choices. Now we plan on returning to try their renowned fettuccine Alfredo, we heard it's amazing!

    We had not been there for many years. Our waiter Pat was outstanding. Explaining a lot of items on the menu. We loved our Beef Shortrib dish. Our pasta was fine, however, not exceptional. It was not al dente which I prefer. Loved our dessert as well. We will be back for the linguine and caesar salad.

    Been here twice now, ordered the filleto (beef tenderloin) both times and it’s next level delicious! All the pastas I’ve tried are good (have tried 3), best for sharing so you can try more menu options as even the individual portion size is ample. The aranchini and the scallop appetizers are great! I truly think the signature dishes are signature for a reason but really nothing disappoints here, and the service is always top notch. Love how they do reservations on open table and have ample parking making it easy to enjoy a lovely dinner!
