It takes a lot for an Italian restaurant to earn a solid reputation these days, but Vivere Italian Restaurant in Stafford couldn’t be more loved by its surrounding community. Right in the centre of town on Foregate Street, Vivere is chic, award-winning and its menu offers flavours from almost every region of Italy. With pizza, pasta and mains to please, as soon as you take your seat inside Vivere you’re hit with that immediate sense of warm satisfaction that only a select few restaurants are able to provide. Naturally, this Stafford Italian restaurant is popular, so do reserve a table in advance.
Ask any Italian and they’ll tell you that one of the most important elements of the kitchen is good olive oil because it brings dishes together in a way that nothing else can. At Vivere Italian Restaurant, everything on the menu is cooked with extra virgin olive oil, and although this may seem like a minor detail, it really makes quite the difference. As well as that, Vivere is one of few Italian restaurants in the centre of Stafford that can offer gluten-free as well as vegan options, meaning it’s a restaurant fit for just about any group of diners.
In terms of the menu itself, as we said, here on Foregate Street you can expect extremely authentic pizza and pasta, as well as few mains of chicken or fish. Our suggestion would be to begin with a good selection of antipasti, of course, before a main of tagliatelle al salmone, a classic lasagne or Fantasia. What’s our favourite pizza? That would have to be the Fiorentina complete with tomato sauce, mozzarella, spinach, egg and blue cheese. Stafford loves Vivere Italian Restaurant and we know you will too.
I would highly recommend. The food was fabulous and lovely staff as always, portions sizes really good and a great atmosphere. Will definitely be going back.
Fantastic food that you can watch bring cooked in the kitchen. Super friendly and attentive staff and excellent service. Would definitely recommend and would go back in a flash
