Come join us for great Italian food here in Bridgton, ME

With joy and sadness, we are passing Vivo to a wonderful young couple with experience and vision. They are the joy part. Many of you know Christian Cuff, who worked at Vivo in the early days before heading to Bar Harbor with his wife, Nicole, to turn a struggling restaurant into a a huge, delicious success. We could not be happier that they are the new owners of Vivo, effective November 25. Looking ahead, they already have plans to build a wood-fired oven for pizza at Vivo, a great addition. And all of our wonderful staff will remain with Vivo.

The sad part: leaving Vivo. Everyone retires at some point, but it is hard to leave something one has built and loved. It is even harder to leave YOU. Thank you, Bridgton and the Lakes Region, for welcoming us with such warmth and enthusiasm, for giving our food a try, and making Vivo the community gathering place it has become. We hope to see a lot of you in the months remaining. Knowing how kind and open our customers are, we know you will give a warm welcome to Christian and Nicole Buon appetito! Joanie and Jimmy
