We were very disappointed with the quality of the food. Although the place is beautiful and the waiters very friendly, the food is not good. Neither the starters, the pastas or the desert we had were of any interest. It tastes like something you can eat anywhere, and if the tomato sauce is homemade, it still tastes like caned sauce...

I went there to have dinner, simply it's one of the best restaurant in Cairo.

It's too difficult to find such an Italian cousine , with this type of food . I don't know from where should I start......

Once you arrive here you will find an amazing hostess waiting for you with a warm welcome escorting you to the table and explaining the menu to u with such a lovely smile ,

Restaurant is in the second floor which has a wonderful view on the nile river and Cairo tower.. such a lovely ambience.

Starting with the appetizer was a recommendation from Mr. Nabil the restaurant manager "Shrimp tempura" which was nice one and the main course beef tenderloin which was a really tasty with Fois Gras on the top and some grilled asparagus on the side, and special thanks to Chef Carmine which he came to our table and spoke to us for a while was so amazing to see the chef very interesting to meet the guest. I would recommend the tiramisu it's a taste dillechous.

Thanks to Fathy for bieng a wonderful and helping us with anything we asked .

Also after vivo you can enjoy your drinks in Bar'Oro as degisteve, Mohamed ria recommended for us, grape cafee which was
Simply this is the best Italian restaurant ever highly recommended and I will always come back

Good job and keep it up Vivo ❤

The Vivo restaurant at the Nile Ritz Carlton is probably justifiably reputed for its fine Italian cuisine and excellent service. However, it does not appear to be a very popular place. Our group of five was the only one in the restaurant while we were there.
While there may be something to say for the undivided attention one gets from the wait staff and the kitchen when one is part of of a sole, small group dining in a restaurant, it can also be somewhat eerie and one tends to miss the low hum and bustle of a crowded but fine restaurant.
The service was excellent. We were helped in making our wine selection and the dining options were explained very well to enable us to make our selections. The pumpkin soup was good, my lamb chop was prepared just the way I wanted it and the al dente fresh made pasta was very well liked. The service was attentive, but unobstrusive.
Deserted fine restaurants in top hotels is a phenomenon we encountered repeatedly in Egypt. I wonder how much this has to do with the exorbitant prices charged. Perhaps one gets much better value for money in the many good local restaurants.
