Torrential drizzle was falling as we walked into Vivo, but once inside the mood significantly lifted. First visit & initial impact was positive. A modern looking restaurant, well lit & comfortably laid out. Not too busy, so we were invited to choose our own table & the restaurant host was attentive & friendly. Extensive food / wine menus & once served food was well presented & quality / taste was fantastic. When next back in Stapleford - we will come back to Vivo.

Went to Vivo for a birthday lunch and took advantage of the 2 course lunchtime deal. The food was excellent quality and portions just the right amount. We had the place to ourselves, so service was individual and attentive (I'm sure the emptiness had more to do with it being early on a Monday lunchtime, at the end of the month rather than a reflection of the restaurant). Nice place to eat when you'd rather stay local than go into Derby or Notts.

My wife and I went to Vivo for our Anniversary Dinner. Massimo made us very welcome, the décor was modern light and airy and there was a good atmosphere, which the background music added to as opposed to detracting from, as it does in some venues. The food was well prepared and presented and of a price range competitive with other Italian Restaurants we have visited. I would highly recommend this Restaurant, we will certainly be returning.

At the end of a busy day (and a hectic few days really), it was a pleasure to relax and enjoy our delicious meal at the Vivo restaurant. The welcome was as warm as ever and the food was delightful with a real range of tastes that lingered on the palate. Marvelous
