We were staying at St. Regis celebrating my mother's birthday. We decided to dine at Vivendo one night, and we are so glad we did. It was a lovely, lovely experience, fine foods and wines, attentive and professional service and timeless luxury atmosphere.

Very good restaurant. Beautiful setting. Our server was very pleasant and knew her job well. We did the tasting menu with wine pairings. Good value relative to similar restaurants in NY.

We did the fixed menu for €75 each, this is a very elegant and upscale restaurant. The pairing of the wine was great, good value for the meal. Service was excellent, we stayed at St. Regis so this worked out great.

The curry-flavored tanglierini was awesome, except for the prawn being not so fresh. The wine recommended was great, pairing well with the tanglierini. Service was great, but could be better if they could serve the tanglolini and risotto separately for our sharing - as indicated at the time of ordering. Overall it's good, but not exceptionally great.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighbourhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
