Located off Six Forks Rd. in North Raleigh, Vivo Ristorante is an authentic, family-owned, Italian restaurant, that seeks to provide its customers with not just great food, but also a great experience. The dynamic menu, serves very traditional Italian meals and also meals that represent the mixing of American and Italian heritages. The food is prepared with fresh, local, and organic products that we eagerly used before “farm to table” became trendy. Between the bread we bake in house or the angus meatballs we make by hand, fresh and quality food has always been our cornerstone. Vivo caters to both fine diners and casual diners alike. There is a great selection of wine and a full bar, that offers a quality craft beers on draft. With a caring staff, and an inventive kitchen, Vivo is ready to serve you today.

Chef Lupe is pleased to provide delicious cuisine inspired by old-world Italian plates with a twist for the modern day.  He has been working as a chef for twelve years and is happy to continue thriving in the industry now working in Vivo alongside the Cinelli family. He prides himself on being a perfectionist and ensures his very talented kitchen staff works with the same mentality. Lupe was originally trained as a pastry chef and to this day making desserts continues to be his favorite part of the job.  Chef, the Cinelli’s, and the entire Vivo staff is excited for you to join us to experience incredible authentic Italian food.
