Unreasonably pricey + worst service of all – We were there to celebrate our gram's birthday. We called ahead to ask if we could bring kids (1Y and 4Y), and were told kids are welcome. In fact, even told to bring our own highchair. We have been to many top restaurants in Pittsburgh with our kids, including Bona Terra, Casbah, and we were fine. We started dinner at 5pm, and we were the only table there. My 4 yr old wanted to look at cars outside and walked hear the entrance, but we were told to keep him on his chair, which we did. Both my kids behaved ok, did not cry or throw tantrum, but my 1 yr old did squeak once in a while. The 2 waitresses gave us a look at the get go. When we were down to dessert course at 7pm when other tables started to fill, the hostess told us to take the kids outside. So we decided to skip dessert and go, and the waitress gave us another look. So, they expect us take our kids outside and have the rest of table to finish dessert? I reasoned w the hostess as she told us that kids are fine. She still insisted that VIVO is kids friendly and welcomes children ? yeah, kicking out kids = welcoming kids. The bill was horrific too. $400 for 6 adults w appetizers and entrees, no salad, no dessert. Verbal menu = not showing u the price = charge whatever. Even after we checked w. them the REAL price, the bill doesn't add up. I called that DISHONEST. Food is ok, but not good enough to charge $40+ for entree. Now I know why they are open only a few days a week, because they severely overcharge. They think they are Lutrec at Nemacolin Woodland, which they are nowhere in comparison, in terms of both food and service. If Vivo doesn?t like kids, just tell us when we make reservation that it is better to leave the kids at home, rather than telling us that we welcome kids, but kick them out. Would never go back again. Bona Terra in Sharpsburg offers better food with better price. Any of the big burrito group restaurants (Eleven, Casbah, Soba, Umi) offer better value as well.
best cuisine in Pittsburgh – the most imaginitive haute cuisine in pittsburgh. there is no standard menu; everything is fresh. it may cost around a $100 for two but you will not be disappointed particularly if you are a foodie
Excellent food, but expensive – I was hoping for a romantic dinner with my husband and I was a little disappointed with the ambience. Although small, I didn't think the atmosphere was very romantic. The food was excellent; the beef tenderloin with cherry wine sauce was superb. However, for the price, the portions are quite small. I just found Vivo to be a little too expensive; for a couple expect to pay at least $100 (not including tip).
Best in Pittsburgh – Absolutely the best dining in the Pittsburgh area. The entrees are unusual and delicious. The service is impeccable. Make sure you save room for the desserts.
I think being able to bring your own wine is a big plus.
Nestled among the businesses and banks of Bellevue, a storefront-style gem resides. – The Scene
The small, quietly elegant dining room complete with faux finished walls and provincial herbs hanging in the window gives you the feel of being in a cafe in the Mediterranean. The service adds to the small bistro feel as the employees are all part of the family that runs this restaurant. Check out their baby pictures hanging on the back wall.
The menu is small and inventive with many specials featured nightly. Everything has a Mediterranean twist, but the menu is a breath of fresh air from typical Pittsburgh Italian food. The grilled lamb chops were cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. There are several seafood selections on the menu, and the featured specials are very interesting. Examples include sea bass en papilotte, whole grilled trout stuffed with fresh herbs as well as some more carnivorous selections.
Fantastic – I guess when you are a computer geek Olive Garden would be the best place you would ever eat at. For all the non-geek people out there try this place, a little pricey but worth every penny and bring your own wine, which makes it even better
