Taking inspiration from the all-day bakery cafés of Europe, Vivo Islington is a bustling spot on Islington's Upper Street. Offering quick coffees, colourful salads and desserts from the deli counter, and hearty mains, there is also a wonderful open-air roof terrace which makes for a romantic setting evening cocktails.

The Vivo Islington menu is filled with authentic tastes of the Mediterranean, starting with antipasti selections with cured Italian meats, perfect to enjoy with a glass of wine from the extensive list. There are all kinds of pasta and risotto dishes, as well as stone-baked pizzas topped with imported ingredients. For those after a quick bite at lunch, the deli counter is packed with wholesome salads, generously made filled with super foods and other treats.

Breakfasts at Vivo in Islington are also extremely popular, with eggs served any way, and fluffy pancakes and waffles also on offer. As well as expertly brewed coffees, there are signature cocktails for later in the day, as well as a diverse wine list and selection of European beers.

Decorated with exposed stone work and warm lighting, Vivo Islington is a popular restaurant in London that offers versatile continental-style dining all through the day.

    I came back to Vivo after nearly a year and a half hoping to find the same quality of food. The first time I went there their deli salas counter was a pleasant surprise. The selection of salads was great with a good variety of ingredients. This time I was disappointed with the choice. We had to take some items from the menu instead and it was not that great. The pizza was very bland, literally like a tasteless pita with a slice of cheese and a few chopped peppers. The antipasti dish is not even worth mentioning. All in all - the interior and background music are nice, the staff is accomodating but the food is a turn off. Not going back there because of the quality of food. Too much money for a lot of bread that can be had at home.

    We enjoyed a superb evening at Vivo! The atmosphere in both the main restaurant area, and up on the roof terrace was excellent, and the service extremely friendly. There is a huge deli counter displaying an amazing selection of homemade baked goods, salads and desserts - but we opted to dine from the a la carte menu. The food was of the highest quality, and very good value for money.
    I would certainly recommend Vivo and look forward to returning again soon.

    Positives were there were lots of tables available so not overcrowded. Service started off good when waitress took order straight away, then we had to wait quite a while before someone came to take our food order, after having eaten our meal we still stayed at the restaurant chatting for a further hour in which time we could have had a couple more drinks if anyone bothered to serve us but no-one attended to us until we asked for the bill. We had the breakfast menu which was pretty average and unfortunately they do not serve the alcohol on this menu until after 12pm but i guess that is pretty standard.
