About vivo ristorante - Westend
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
Waitress was amazing. Meat courses took a very long time and were both overdone, not the experience I’ve come to expect from this restaurant.
great food excellent service
Overall the food was amazing but the server was lacking personality and hospitality. Service did not match the amazing food on the plate. Server was unclear about portion sizes and made it difficult to envision what was coming out and there wasn't enough food for 4. Better clarifications are needed. Instead of listening to customers wants, she made her own choice of direction.
Great food. The staff help with recommendations and accurate portion sizes.
Can't thank the wait staff enough for the wonderful service. Very helpful and accommodating with allergies and children. Food, as always, was amazing. It does get a bit loud when the restaurant is full but we arrived early and it was better. Overall a great experience and we will return.
Definitely one of the best fine dinning family style restaurants in the city. Always have a great meal when we come😊
Top notch food and service as usual. Vivo never disappoints!
Great place to share as everything is served family style. Food was great. Our server did a good job at answering questions about items on the menu. The tiramisu was delicious for dessert.
We enjoyed everything about VIVO! The service, the wine, the food! We will be back and would highly recommend this place to everyone!
I love this place. The food is UNBELIEVABLE! So delicious.
Our server Alan did a fantastic job. The restaurant was busy lots of energy a little hard to have conversation for 5 people but the experience was great. The family style service was exactly what we wanted as it gives everyone a chance to try everything. Food was fantastic!! Would absolutely go again.
We had a wonderful evening at Vivo. The service was fantastic and the food even better. We had heard some people find it a bit pricey but for a special occasion it was perfect. There is definitely good value in what you pay for what you get.
I loved everything about it, I had no idea ot was a restaurant I drive by it everyday. Now that I know it’s such a amazing restaurant I will be going Waaay more! Amazing!!!
Fantastic service (thanks Pat as you really consistently continue to be on top of your game when it comes to remembering guests and what they like and how they want to be treated), great food - loved the pasta and sea bass and new chicken dish. Very special evening as we got to meet up with good friends and share in all the dishes and conversations. I would recommend VIVO if you’re interested in having a great dinner with those you love.
We love Vivo. Great service and food is always amazing! Perfect date place.
Great food, a bit pricey though,waitress was great
As always just great service, great wine & great food all making for a great evening ! Thank you for handcrafting some yummy hot chocolate to fulfill my young daughters request.
Another great evening at Vivo. This restaurant is well-managed, the staff are exceptionally knowledgeable and seem to enjoy what they are doing. Highly recommended for the service and food. I love it and always take out of town visitors here for a special experience.
Outstanding restaurant, Chad our waiter was incredible.
6 of us visited the restaurant for a birthday celebration and everything from the food to the service was excellent! We got to try a lot of different dishes and they were all fantastic.
My husband and I have yet to experience anything less than exquisite when we visit Vivo. The food, atmosphere and service are always exceptional and we leave valuing our experience. The Fettuccine and gnocchi are a must try!
we tried a few new items we had not previously ordered and now the whole menus is becoming difficult to decide from-good problem to have I guess
Excellent & vibrant restaurant & staff. Creative & tasty menu - a perennial & perfect favourite that never disappoints.
We sat at the counter, fun experience! My husband wants to go again next time we are in Edmonton.
The food is simply fantastic and Vivo has an excellent wine selection. We did not have to wait long for our food and our waiter, Mike, was knowledgeable, friendly, and helped us to pick the perfect food for our vegetarian palates. Can't wait to go back!
The meal and the service was absolutely outstanding! Always fresh, local ingredients whenever possible and amazingly prepared. Highly recommend.
Amazing food one of the best meals I have had in a long time, I like the shared dish concept we had a group of 7 it might be a Little harder to order with just two people
Enjoyed sitting at the Chef’s counter! Love watching your food being prepared in front of you. Food and service were top notch. Love the cookies fresh from the oven, nice way to end an excellent meal!
Delicious as always!!!! I will always go back.
It is a bit on the expensive side so I don’t go as often I would like. For two people it cost us over 160. However we each had one drink but the drink was 16 each. But even if you take that out it was still close to 130 and we had small salad, small pasta, then the tenderloin... no sides and no desert..
So if I were to suggest anything it would be to dial down how pricey some things are especially since the meats only come with meat and no sides.
A great dining experience overall! The staff was very personable and professional. The food was some of the best I've had in the city. Excited to return and try some more of the dishes they offered
First time at Vivo and we enjoyed it. The food was exceptional except for our Bistecca. The meat was actually quite tough. I would still return here though as everything else was spot on
Great food, pasta fantastic , beef tenderloin delicious
Juste parfait !!!
Restaurant was very busy so quite loud. Food is delicious but pricey.
Superb! Vivo never disappoints incredible food and service!
Amazing food , great service !
Vivo never disappoints! Love the food and Chef Medi's special touches. The entire staff is always excellent.
Always a great experience at Vivo (Westend).
Booked the private room for my father's birthday and we couldn't have been more pleased. The server knew all our names and the level of personalized service was outstanding!
Will consider the private room for a future corporate event as the room is equipped with a television.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere. The open kitchen was very neat! Excellent service.
My husband and I chose Vivo for our anniversary dinner on a Friday night. The food and service were amazing as usual. We chose some classics (all served family style) - Caprese, Fettucini and Bistecca. All were delicious! Always a great choice in my opinion.
