  • The hors d'oeuvres are fabulous!
  • Tagliorini Zafferano Alla Calabrese (House made saffron pasta, sauted with garlic and olive oil, spicy calabrian peppers, calamari, baby gulf shrimp, diver sea scallops)
  • The best of the three restaurants that make up the multi-level Italian Village, Vivere boasts a menu as contemporary as its decor.
  • Monkfish and lobster - needs more lobster!
  • Try the gelato - you will return just for it.
  • Try the Angnolottini di Fagiano - excellent pheasant filled pasta!
  • Don't ask the linguine calabrese, it's too spicy and smells awful...
  • Try the Agnolottini Di Fagiano
  • Get the "Gina Martini"
  • My fav restaurant in Chicago - do the chefs tasting, $65 for a four course personalized menu. Can't go wrong with the lobster gnocchi or pheasant ravioli YUM! Walk around Grant Park afterwards! !
  • Try the gnocchi. The most wonderfully complex taste I have had in months! The truffle oil just pops out at you.
  • Another delightful lunch at Vivere! Thanks Crystal for your knowledgeable service and to the Chef for the perfectly cooked Risotto. Perfect blend of truffle oil, crab meat & rice.
  • Foodies will be excited by appetizer combos such as Kobe beef carpaccio & truffled peaches or smoked scallops & grapefruit sections, others can opt for the likes of a crisp, satisfying Caesar salad.
  • Great find - the service was excellent, and glad the server steered me towards the sturgeon special. Gnocchi and stuffed pasta entrees were also delicious.
  • Took my boyfriend here for his birthday dinner. Great service; waiter REALLY smart on the line list. Pork was amazing.
  • Cosy interior, perfect for lunch meetings
  • Solid Italian downtown
  • No filler in the crab cake and quite tasty. The corvina was perfect.
