First Taste

Vivo! Ristorante in Scottsdale Offers Friendly Service and Pricey Italian Cuisine

When a new spot opens in town, we can't wait to check it out -- and let you know our initial impressions, share a few photos, and dish about some menu items. First Taste, as the name implies, is not a full-blown review, but instead a peek inside restaurants that have just opened, sampling a few items, and satisfying curiosities (yours and ours).

Restaurant: Vivo! Ristorante Location: 6560 North Scottsdale Road Open: About two weeks Eats: Italian Price: $25+ per person

The name Tomaso Maggiore should ring a bell for most Valley diners. The Maggiore family has been behind dozens of restaurants around town over the years, including, most notably, Tomaso's, the decades-old restaurant located in the Biltmore neighborhood.

Vivo! Ristorante is the latest dining spot to come from the Maggiore family and aims to bring "authentic Italian cuisine" to Scottsdale.
