This campus restaurant is a nice break from typically university fare. It has a nice menu -- pastas, sandwiches and the like. The desserts are tasty. Service is fast. The food is well-made and delivered quickly. There on downer is that the staff do not appear to enjoy their jobs very much. They are prefunctory and unhelpful -- and they... More

I had lunch here today with colleagues. I had the pasta of the day - penne with a spicy tomato sauce with chorizo and jalapenos. Very tasty, but the penne was perhaps just a little overcooked. My colleagues all enjoyed their meals (salad of the day, and salmon steak). We finished with cappuccinos, which were delicious. Service was very good,... More

On Thursday night we went to Teatro Vivaldi to celebrate my husband's birthday. Once again we had an outstanding meal. The meat from the lamb shank fell of the bone, salmon cooked to perfection, garlic mash to die for and the brisket melted in your month. We have yet to have a dissapointing meal here. I believe that Canberra needs... More

This review is from a slightly different perspective. As a musician I have performed at Vivaldi's a number of times now. The staff are wonderfully accommodating and go out of their way to help us as a band. In terms of food; we are always well fed. Many of my family and friends have come to the shows and always...

I seem to get to Vivaldi about once a year but I should go more often. Yesterday I went for Sunday lunch with a cabaret performance by the outstanding Michael Cormick. I had forgotten the charm of the place with well spaced tables, velvet and gilt decoration, linen serviettes, antique pieces and cabinets of show business books. Licensed for only... More

The complete restaurant was taken over for this occasion . Very well organised, food pretty good, lovely salmon dish, service very good considering the numbers staff had to cope with. A pleasant evening had by all.

We enjoyed the Rhonda Burchmore dinner and show ... The most recent of our visits to Teatro Vivaldi. Every time we have been to a dinner and show we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The menus always seem to match the theme of the show as well as using local fresh produce. The environment is small and intimate and there isn't... More

I am a great fan of Teatro Vivaldi, but a recent Christmas lunch there with a group of friends was particularly delightful. We ate out on the patio in the shade of the willow trees that grow there along the banks of Sullivan's Creek as it wends its way through the grounds of Australian National University. As ever, the service... More
