Love Vivo the food never fails to be amazing and such a friendly environment
Great food, great atmosphere, friendly staff. What's not to like! Like it so much we are going back this weekend for Xmas party round two.
Plenty of good Italian food. Proper Pizza oven- you can't beat them. Good service. Nice atmosphere. Prices are reasonable. It's what you would expect from an Italian restaurant.
a good welcoming, given a choice of tables and positioning. Calm and airy. Food was very well cooked and presented and quantities were good. I would recommend this restaurant.
We live in the local area so have dined here a few times. I've had a mixture of experiences, from 'iffy' service to brilliant service. Personally, I don't find it very consistent however the food is good and reasonably priced. My recent visit was a mixture of good.. and bad. We took the mother in law, for a belated mothers day meal. The food came out at reasonable times, we didn't have to particularly wait long at all. Service was good in that respect, however my mother in law complained her pasta dish was extremely salty. Afterwards, the waiter asked how our food was and the salty pasta dish was mentioned. The chef must have tried it himself, as the waiter swiftly returned apologising. He then offered my mother in law a free dessert. We didn't want desserts as we'd had starters and instead asked for the bill. No money was taken off the bill and we paid for her main dish which is unacceptable really, however we didn't want to make a fuss. In hindsight, we should have probably booked the Palmichael - service is always great there, plus the food is amazing. If we had experienced the same there, I know they would have taken it seriously!
We live in Cambridge and our son and daughter-in-law live in Loughborough. Every couple of months we each drive halfway to Vivo Italian Restaurant to catch up and have a nice long visit. We are never disappointed with the food or service and we would thoroughly recommend it. If you like Italian food, you will enjoy going there.
The food was really good; my husband enjoyed his pizza but it just had too many mushrooms on it but other than that, he really enjoyed his food. We both ordered a Caprese and the cheese was really nice. I had the sea bass dish and I thoroughly enjoyed that. It had some mushrooms and prawns in there. I liked the lobster sauce but it was a little too much with the fish, perhaps it's better on the side to let the customer decide how much sauce they want as too much could 'drown' the flavors of the fish. But I really enjoyed my food regardless. I also ordered some potato saute as a side, very, very nice, but again, too much, as I had to leave some behind.
We went to Vivo in Burton Latimer as an early birthday celebration for my wife. The reception was friendly and warm, the food was incredible, we both had the Rossini steak, cooked perfectly and the sweet was excellent. The staff were so friendly especially our waitress. Even a small candle on my wifes sweet and they sang happy birthday. What more could you want. I can't recommend this restaurant more highly. Jim and Hilary White. 28.12.2015
Our table was booked for 8 o'clock and we arrived about 5 minutes early. We were told that they were running behind and told to go to the bar and have a drink. After at least 15 minutes with no one apparently serving we asked if we could be served with drinks and there were at least 12 people waiting behind us waiting to be seated. We finally were given our table about 8-25 and our order was taken about 15 minutes later. The starter arrived with the additional garlic bread bit no plain bread, this arrived when the starter plates were collected. After another long wait and seeing people who were seated after us being served we finally had the main course served at 9-50. Although the food was very tasty it was difficult to enjoy after the wait, the wife's pizza was covered in rocket which spoilt it, maybe this amount is normal but it was literally covered and would have benefited from a quick trim with a flymo. We did not have a sweet or coffee and asked for the bill a couple of times, we finally left the almost empty restaurant at 10-45 quite disappointed at the service. I know they were busy but we did not feel welcome and are not planning to return.
Pleasant welcome from genuine Italian staff, clean modern surroundings, not rushed into making any choices and the food was exactly as expected. The waiter used only enough Italian to set the scene and to allow me to use my limited ability. Prices in line with the experience of dining out in the area. My wife recommended the place as she had lunched there with friends before. Would definitely go again.
