Welcome to VIVO!
VIVO! Mediterranean Grill & Catering, a new chic restaurant featuring a seasonal, locally inspired menu that offers a delicious selection of wild caught fish, prime aged meats, free-range chicken and daily made pastas. Executive Chef Valentino Ujkic believes in using only the highest quality ingredients that will never compromise the integrity of the dish.
The restaurant’s hip, upscale vibe resonates with old world authenticity. Once the mansion home to glamorous Rudolph Valentino, the setting is both elegant and stylish, offering sun filled, traditional Ballrooms, a decidedly urban vibe in the Dining Room, hand crafted cocktails at the Bar and Lounge, and al fresco dining on the Patio adjacent to manicured gardens and gazebo.
