It was a busy day "Mothers Day " so the place was full. We all ordered our meals and garlic bread. The ladies all good a small bottle of champs. Very nice ! All the meals started to arrive except one. The pasta, I think they miss ordering that one as it took a While to come. Also so did the bowl of chips. My Veal Saltabuka with egg plant was average, had a lot of bacon on the top. Every place does it different but at least I asked for not to much egg plantand thats how it came. Everyone else their meals.
To end off the long weekend, an early dinner here on Friday is exactly what was needed. 2 kids happily accommodated in their whims of what they did want... parents happy with abundance of food & smooth service.
The pizza was fantastic as usual, but the serving staff seemed to struggle a lot when we went last night... It was a bit faulty towers for a bit there, but the vibe was good, everyone had a good time, so no problems.
Service was good, wait staff polite, and food was very tasty and generous. Only negative was that the background music was a little too loud for conversation around the dinner table.
Great food, excellent service ! Would recommend italian food lovers to try this restaurant ! We have visited this place more than ten times and were always satisfied!
I went to Vivere with mum last night. We ordered pizza and Calamari salad. The leafy salad was not fresh at all. Some of it turned yellow although coated in thick dressing. We asked for replacement pizza since prawns were missing from toppings. It's been replaced, but not with fresh prawn but frozen shrimps. Both dishes were very salty. Overall, it was not a enjoyable experience.
Great food and the staff friendliness was great. However, the service was a little slow. Anyway we had a great time out with great food!
