TDN subscribers now regularly recommend dining and shopping options to our out-of-town readers.
Vivolo (New York City, NY - Dining)
140 East 74th St., New York, NY
Type: Fine Italian dining in a turn of the century townhouse
Vivolo offers an option for fine Italian dining in a turn of the century townhouse. It is owned by the Vivolo family who loves horse racing and is always open to talk horses. The wood-paneled rooms, fresh flowers and candles create a relaxing and romantic atmosphere. I always find downstairs to be the best place to sit, especially since there is always a fireplace going when it is cold outside. There is a great wine list and I always order the pasta special. The prices are a bit more expensive, but well worth the cost. Reservations are recommended.
