SquareMeal Review of Vivido

True to its name, this spirited and contemporary Italian restaurant aims to ‘celebrate life’ as well as the native cuisine of its owners’ homeland. Inside, all is open-plan with polished wooden floors, pillars, lush greenery, a striking curved bar and Venetian blinds masking the arched windows, while the long menu covers most bases. Pasta is always a sound bet, with a choice ranging from spag bol or penne all’arrabiatta to seafood linguine or tagliatelle with salmon, spinach and pawns in tomato sauce; otherwise, order one of the pizzas, try roast rump of lamb with Mediterranean vegetables or tackle a plate of calf’s liver with spring onion mash, crispy bacon and red wine sauce. Specially devised children’s menus are a boon for families, and the international wine list includes some good-value Italian bottles. Handily placed for Harrogate’s Conference Centre.
