Vivo is another favorite restaurant of ours, partly because of it's close proximity to our condo and our ability to walk there. We went again this past Saturday.

We had a little bit of a wait on Saturday night and the manager got us a free round of drinks. Score.

The main reason I go to Vivo is for their fresh mozzarella. It's the best I've had outside of Italy and I think I've tried it at every restaurant I've been to. Their Caprese salad is delicious and made with sun-dried tomatoes.

The second reason I go is the bellinis. I'm a sucker for any drink made with champagne and this one is perfect. Not too sweet.

I typically order either the Gnochi Gratinati or the sea scallops. Both delicious. The Husband orders Rigatoni alla Butara which is rigatoni in a goat cheese tomato sauce with Italian sausage and cheese. What can I say, we're creatures of habit.

Also, we love the atmosphere. It's small and intimate with brick walls, modern without being too hip.
