Vivo: A User’s Guide

Upscale Italian | West Loop Icon | Wood-fired Steaks | Housemade Pasta | Celebrity Favorite

Sample Menu

  • Appetizer : beef tenderloin carpaccio with shaved parmesan, radicchio, and arugula
  • Main course: rigatoni with Italian sausage, tomato, and goat cheese
  • Dessert: homemade gelato

Where to Sit: the sidewalk patio on bustling Randolph Street if it’s warm, or the highly-sought “elevator shaft table 70” if you’re celebrating a milestone or planning a proposal.

When to Go: Saturday nights, when the vaulted, industrial-chic space swells with the clinking glasses and chatter of West Loop foodies.

What to Drink: old-school cocktails (think faithful sazeracs) or one of the bottles of Italian wine from the impressive open-view vault.

While You’re Waiting: Look up and you’ll see the famous Table 70, an exclusive “elevator shaft” VIP table overlooking the dining room. Table 70 has been a draw for celebs like Oprah and Michael Jordan, as well as bent-knee romantics popping the question while waiters pop special Italian wines.

History Lesson and Small Talk Fodder: Vivo was founded in 1991, long before Randolph Street became a foodie mecca, and remains a cornerstone for West Loop’s modern-day “restaurant row.” It’s still a hip draw, even with all the trendy spaces and celebrity chefs moving onto the block.
