The most delicious Italian tapas styled food. The wine list is dangerous though... so many amazing options! A beautiful atmosphere, tucked away down a side street. #shoutme

Nice ambience, great wine list, tasty tapas style food with an Italian twist, and good service.

A huge wine selection (600 bottles!) and incredibly tasty menu for affordable prices. Try the garlic buns, they are killer. Plus their pasta is always delicious.

This lovely lovely wine bar has an immaculate tapas menu. Lurking amongst that tapas menu - you guessed it - herbed polenta fries. This place is great to a long catch-up with friends, or maybe time a little bit more intimate with that special someone (or potential special someone?)

I LOVE this place - the polenta chips are to die for and the wine just goes on and on. . . 

This is a great place to have a fine meal and plenty of high quality wines by the glass.  

Out to impress the fairer sex I needed the perfect Sat night spot and boy did Vivo deliver. An embracing warmth as the doors opened. Cool, crisp and buttery Chardonnay matched with melt in your mouth gnocchi and a lemon cheesecake that left her weak at the knees. For great food wine and romance you can't get any better.
