Went to Caffe Vivo on Sunday, as I had heard from several Italian friend's the food was delicious.
When we got there, we were sat straight away. It was quiet for a Sunday afternoon but we were just happy to be sat somewhere on the quayside. Orders were taken straight away, however... The waitress seemed to be unsure about most of the dishes that her employers were serving, and flitted back and forth between ourselves and the kitchen (she may have been new, but this was not communicated to us). I ordered the egg in purgatory and the chicken and my friend ordered the bruscetta and the spicy sausage rigatoni. Close An hour later when our food arrived, the egg was extremely over cooked. The yolk was like powder. The sauce was nice, but nothing special. When our mains came out- 45mins after the starters. we had asked what was going on although never got an apology from the several waiters that we were passed amongst. My chicken looked like it was swimming in watery milk and tasted the same too. The rigatoni seemed more on the uncooked side, rather than al dente, but again the sauce was nice. We ate the food because we didn't want to go anywhere else to have to wait even longer. When the bill came, the service charge came in the final total which we refused to pay as all the was waiters just looked like they wanted to be anywhere but at work and seemed to be making that clear in their service. I would definitely not go back here.
