Vivoli Cafe

I've been wanting to try this place for sometime, especially after all the great reviews on the board. The entire menu sounds great, what are everyone's favorite dishes? Thanks in advance for your recommendations!

  1. I love this place. I've had the plain bistecca (steak) and each time it's been wonderful - nice and charred on the outside, tender, and cooked the way I wanted it. I've also had a chicken dish that has tomato, lemon juice, and artichokes, very good. I'm not a tiramisu expert, but I liked theirs a lot and it was a huge piece for the price. I'm not a marinara sauce fan at all, but theirs is so good I'd buy it. They told me they make it every day.

    I went with a whole group of people to celebrate something, there were 7 or 8 of us and we all had different things (pastas, panini - it was lunchtime, pork covered in an olive sauce, etc) and everyone loved what they had, so I'd say just go for something that sounds good and ask the staff about their recommendation - they also have specials too.

    And for full disclosure, I've only been to the WeHo location. Not sure if they're still doing it but they were a few months ago - if you fill out the little form, you can get a gift certificate during your birth month for $15 off lunch!

      Thanks for the recos, I'll definitely have to try the marinara sauce too. I live close to the WeHo one, so that's the one I'll be going to this week. I'll look for that gift certificate form too! Thanks Debstah!
