Vivohas opened it’s doors on Upper Street offering a Princi style Italian eating experience – but hey that’s no bad thing, we bloody love Princi! The laid back restaurant has a no rezzie policy but because of the nature of the food it’s in and out fast so the queues shouldn’t be too bad.
There’s a hidden outdoor terrace which makes for a perfect sun trap – get involved with a bottle of prosseco or one of the Italian wines, some fresh salads, slice of pizza, close your eyes and you could be Italian riviera. On a recent trip we did just that, trying the juicy Buffalo mozzarella, fresh tomato and basil – a huge portion – the pesto pasta and the Pumpkin & ricotta salad. All fresh, crisp and full of flavour.
There’s also a huge range of desserts – which we shamefully couldn’t squeeze in, hot dishes and fresh breads to takeaway. Ciao Vivo alright!
