Restaurants, Italian Loop
Photograph: Max Herman Vivere

The best of the three restaurants that make up the multi-level Italian Village, Vivere boasts a menu as contemporary as its decor. That’s quite a feat when your dining room looks like an Italian baroque version of Alice’s Wonderland. The regional menu is a balance of classics and interesting twists to housemade pastas, fragrant seafood stews and grilled game. The best part about the kitchen offering half-orders of pasta is that you can get two. This way, you can try the sage-scented, pheasant-filled agnolottini and the rigatoni alla bolognese.
