If you’ve never been before, everything on the menu is family style and meant to be shared. You can get half or full orders of most things, but half orders will more than feed three people. This particular winter evening I was dining with @thepolishviking and we opted to try a few appetizers, pastas and a side. For once, a restaurant went above and beyond to ensure that the man humans alcohol allergy was addressed. Both the server and the head chef came out to assure us multiple times that they would ensure alcohol would not be used in any of our dishes, as they normally deglaze their pasta with white wine and the sides normally are cooked with wine as well.
|Mistaken for feeb carpaccio|
Next the humans enjoyed a feeb carpaccio with grana padano, olive oil, balsamic, capers and argula. @thepolishviking almost mistook me for feeb carpacio as I fainted at their descriptions of sweet, tender, melt in your mouth meat.
|Rotini with Marscapone|
The sour green apple had a natural apple flavor to it and was not too sour, the blood orange was bright, refreshing and citrusy, while the lemon was tart and acted as a great palette cleanser to end the meal.
Vivo Ristorante is worth venturing out for, just make sure you bring a few friends so you can taste a variety of their offerings.
