VIVO Italian Kitchen

Ranked #8 of 21 Table Service Options at Universal Orlando
Located in

Last updated: June 22, 2024

At a Glance

Vivo is Universal’s best Italian food outside Portofino Bay. The menu is filled with classic recipes prepared à la minute with the freshest ingredients, such as chicken piccata, veal parmigiana, spinach ravioli, and spaghetti Bolognese. Best of all, you can dine here for half the price of Bice, Mama Della’s, or one of Disney’s Signature restaurants.

Start by ordering an enormous house-made meatball, hand-pulled mozzarella, or beet-and-Gorgonzola salad. Standout entrées include linguine with seasonal clams, black squid ink pasta with seafood, and risotto with short ribs. On a cost–quality basis, this may be the best table-service meal you’ll have on Universal property.

What’s it like inside?

Sleek and contemporary without being stuffy, Vivo brings a touch of casual class to CityWalk’s central crossroads. There are outdoor tables (with embedded chessboards) and a well-lit bar, along with plush semicircular booths surrounded by sinuous steel cages. But the real action is around the open kitchen; see if you can snag a seat at the food bar in front of the “tree” where fresh pasta is hung.

What are the specialties?

Freshly made pasta, homemade mozzarella, pizza, salads, lasagna, chicken Marsala, and risotto.
