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
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.
Food and service is amazing here!
I loved the food and the ambiance, but the real MVP was our server. I can't remember his name off the top of my head, it may have been David, but he was exceptional!
The service was exceptional. My server was very helpful in recommending the popular favorites on the menu. The wait for the food was short. The food was out of this world, full of flavor and hot. A little on the pricey side but deffinetly well worth the taste.
The food here is above all expectations e very time I come here. Perfect for a date night. It's quiet and the atmosphere is cozy. The serving staff are all professional and very accomodationg making sure your experience is everything you'd want. There are zero complaints and never have been.
My favorite restaurant in Edmonton hands down!!
My first time at Vivo and I know it won't be my last. Food was fresh, well prepared, plenty and so tasty. The fettuccine alfredo was sublime, the best I have ever had anywhere. Could easily order it as my main course. Vivo has a dining style rather unique to an Italian cuisine restaurant. The menu categorizes the food into four separate courses. Both starters and pastas come in full and half orders and are all meant to be shared. The third course is meat or fish with the fourth course or category being a variety of vegetables. All meant to be shared. So for those of you checking the menu online, remember the prices reflect portions that are for sharing. The waiter explained the menu well and made some great recommendations. Please note that even with half orders we still ended up with left overs. We had the lamb platter along with the roasted carrot & beet medley. Absolutely the best food I have had in a long time!
This was the first time for us to dine at Vivo. It won't be the last. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable about the food and quantities we should order. The food was fabulous!!
First time being here, an it was amazing. Thank u again for everything. 💋
Vivo is my son's favourite restaurant for pasta. It is made in house and so delicious. We were a party of 6 on this visit and celebrating 2 birthdays. The service is always warm and welcoming, the food is always outstanding. They source local ingredients. The caprese salad is stellar! We have visited this location several times since they opened and are never disappointed with the food or the service.
We went to Vivo for the first time this past weekend. Our server, Pat, was knowledgeable, friendly, and prompt and the food was delicious and well worth the price. We will definitely be back again soon!
The only thing better than the food was the service!! :)
We live near Vivo, have been enjoying the restaurant since it opened. On our latest visit, we were celebrating our daughter's engagement. Greg and his staff made the celebration even more special. Fantastic service, food and ambiance, highly recommend.
Outstanding on all levels! Incredible food and beautiful ambience...
Huge portions! Cool presentation! Great food! A nice YEG west end experience.
Good food! Group sharing plates so must agree on what to order. Great service!
Went for our anniversary. The server was amazing, very knowledgeable about the food and wine list.
We had a great evening
Great as always. Our favourite night out spot. Sit at the counter it's the best.
They wished us a happy anniversary once seated, which was a nice touch.
Clint our waiter explained the menu the restaurant very well.
His recommendations were great and we had a great meal!
The ambience is fantastic, but when you add the food, service and people you love being with, this is the place to go! Comfortable yet upscale. The new platter with steak and seafood was to die for. My mom loved it and she has pretty high standards.
Great fine dining unique experience and amazing food. A bit costly on the vino but love the food!
I would recommend Vivo to everyone I know. The food is phenomenal and the atmosphere is second to none. Our serving staff was outstanding as well with fine attention to our needs. Come with and empty stomach because the portions are not only large but also a great value. We wanted desert but there was no way by the time we were done with dinner and appetizers. Perfect place to take a date or for an evening out with friends/family. The quality of the food was exceptional and you can cut your steak with a butter knife.
There is nothing negative to say about this restaurant
Vivo is consistently great and the service is always amazing-JC was attentive and personable and we loved the local ingredients. We will keep coming back!
Our experiences keep getting better.
No place that we would have spent out 20 wedding anniversary.
Thank you so much for completing our special day.
Great food, great service. Family style dining is a little limiting but overall a very nice dining experience.
Best italian food in the city.....
Amazing restaurant and very tasty food. Little over price!
Overall a very good meal with very fresh ingredients.
Vivo has always been great staff is super friendly and you cant beat the food
The next time my husband and I return, we will definitely get one of the seats facing the kitchen for that interactive experience! Everything was very delicious!!
Wonderful restaurant and great service. Never disappoints!
We went to Vivo for our anniversary dinner and it was absolutely fantastic!! The food was spectacular and worth every penny and we had great service. We'll definitely be back
Took the little kids there this time on what is probably my 10th visit. Kids loved the fettuccini, the gnocchi and the meatballs
Have never had such amazing food! Will be going back with friends and family. Everyone deserves to experience Vivo.
