Michelle Stonier Pow, August 2021

Blown away by the lovely folks at Vivere. Pre-Ironman race the night before I sat watching my friends drink wine while I stared down at my beautiful pasta meal (If you want a beautiful meal to help carb loading get into this place) Would 100% recommend and we will be back. Super tasty! One of the managers or owners dropped me down a complimentary bottle of red to say best of luck in the race and it was such a nice gesture. That bottle of Merlot has since disappeared ;) Thanks a million for the great reception, food and gesture

Colin Kelly, August 2021

Big thank you to the restaurant. Came with my family yesterday evening and were 20min late. Really appreciate being accommodated. The food was delicious (and we have tried lots of Italians). Decor was really interesting too. Lovely staff in very busy circumstances.

Superb Italian restaurant with top notch food. Great service and good atmosphere.  Was a little chilly in the restaurant tonight and it should have been picked up by the staff but don't take this as a reason not to go. If you haven't been then you are in for a treat.

Andrew Rich, October 2020

Honestly, this has to be the best take away in Stafford. The beers come cold, the pizzas are light and fluffy with a golden crispy base and the pasta dishes offer something you just can't get anywhere else. Thank you so much for this service. You've all made my treats at home amazing!

T,Sept 2020 

Best Italian takeaway I had since I been in the uk. Grazie

Tanya's Exploration, August 2020

Thank you to the entire team here at Vivere, we ordered last night and it was perfectly fresh food cooked to a high standard as always, delivered promptly to a village outside of Stafford.  it is truly commendable to still offer delivery services during these uncertain times where many other businesses simply can't.  Please show support to local business during these difficult times whilst being sensible and staying safe.  Excellent food and service as always, thanks again!
