My second time dining at Cucino Vivo...and again, I was impressed by the fresh and varied menu, the relaxing but trendy vibe, and the delectable aroma of the open wood fired pizza ovens that stand proudly in the middle of the restaurant. Pasta with grilled prawns and fennel cream was lovely, as was the veal scallopine masala. Next time I'm... More

Went for dinner. Shared the calamari , a pizza and gnocchi. Licked the plates clean! Some of the nicest Italian food I've ever eaten. And the waiters were all 5 star as well. No complaints.

Ordered $11 glass of chardonnay from what I buy as a $7 bottle - but that's to be expected. My calamari entree was cooked well but the aioli was quite salty. Desert... More
