Vivo Italian Kitchen Restaurant Description

Vivo Italian Kitchen is the spot for Italian food in Universal CityWalk Orlando. The restaurant has a very modern décor, and the kitchen smells make you feel like you are in Old World Italy. Vivo has what they call an Expo Kitchen, which basically means that diners can watch chefs stirring sauces, making pasta, hand-pulling mozzarella, baking pizza, and performing other kitchen duties. The restaurant also has a snazzy bar where you can start your meals or just visit to sip wine and other Italy-inspired cocktails. 

The menu at Vivo Italian Kitchen contains a handful of appetizers that cost about $10 on average. Choices range from warm caprese and antipasto to calamari and meatballs. Other starters include soup and salads. Vivo Italian Kitchen offers two different wood stove pizzas: a margherita and a white pizza. The pizzas cost about $13, and each pie could easily serve two people. The rest of the menu is dominated by pasta dishes. Pasta is made fresh in the restaurant each day. If you don't like pasta, you can go for other entrée options like seafood (salmon and swordfish), chicken, veal, beef medallions, and pork.  Entrée prices range from $13 to $27 on average.

Vivo Italian Kitchen History

Vivo Italian Kitchen was part of a large expansion that revamped all of Universal's dining options in CityWalk. The restaurant opened in 2014 and replaced another Italian restaurant known as Pastamore.
