Vivo Restaurant Review

: There’s an industrial chic vibe at play here --- exposed brick walls, stacks of wine bottles, butcher-papered tables and a 16-foot ceiling --- and it works well. You can dress your best (or not) when dining; almost anything goes. We have had many outstanding dishes, but then we have had a few losers as well. Pastas tend to be nicely handled (black linguine in a spicy pepperoncini sauce with crab meat and onions). Risotto gets an eight out of ten. Daily fish specials are a don't-miss --- they’re simply grilled and served with roasted rosemary potatoes.
