Wonderful service, fun and lively atmosphere and delicious food!
Made reservations for a 6:00 seating for 3 people. There was a bit of a line at the door, but wait was minimal and as soon as we reached the hostess we were shown to our table. I'd requested a more quiet location, but that doesn't seem to exist. Nonetheless, we could converse without raising our voices significantly, for the most part. The servers were attentive; we were served bread and water before our meals. We ordered snapper, butternut ravioli and chicken parmesan. We each cleaned our plates. For dessert, creme brulee, sorbet and a chocolate hazelnut sundae. All good. The food was delicious, the dinner served efficiently. That would be my main complaint about the restaurant -- the service was efficient, but not warm and welcoming. If this wouldn't bother you, I'd say give this place a try. For this reason, and because of the noise level, I'd say this restaurant is good, but not outstanding.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner and a good time catching up with old friends thank you!
Always consistent very nice food with very nice service and staff.
Had to wait almost 20 min for our table and when we were seated, we were placed in a very cramp table. Service was mediocre - had to flag the waiter several times before I was able to placed out appetizers order. Food was great and good portion. Th linguine vongole was one of the best we had a with large fresh clams, just the right amount of spice and garlic and the linguine was cooked perfectly.
Nice place and serive always solid but the food has dropped in quality while prices are high. While it's pleasant, the mediocre food has me doubting I will come back any time soon.
The food was incredible and service was impecable. Beautiful place for date night.
Outstanding as usual!
I've never had a meal at Vivace that was not excellent in every way but last night the service was really poor. I don't know what was going on but when we were seated the waiter came right over and took our orders. Appetizers showed up promptly but the wait for entrees was interminable. We had been seated for over an hour before they showed up. Waiter was very contrite and apologized. Something had to be going on in the kitchen that caused this.
The food and service were good as usual but the prices went up again and the portions are smaller. You have to pay for bread now and they make a big deal if you ask them to split a dish, like the salad. It is sad for me to see these changes.
The ambiance was great and the service was quick.
Fabulous Restaurant! The service and food are delicious! Highly recommend this gem of a place!
We had a fabulous experience, as usual dining at Vivace! We celebrated a special occasion with my 91 yo father in law visiting us. The food was fabulous, the service was phenomenal and the ambiance was great.We had a memorable evening.
Food was terrific
Service left a lot to be desired
Delicious as always!
Fast service, server excellent. Glad we went.
Great food ... great drink ... great service!
Very good food and service! It's solid. One of the better Italian restaurants on the Peninsula. Will return for sure
Great food as always. Ate indoors with glass dividers between tables and felt very comfortable. Restaurant also kept the 2 front doors open for adequate air flow.
They need more help!! Food was very good!
Always amazing quality food and friendly service. Prices are less than you would pay for a similar meal on the peninsula
Our entrees and salads were delicious. Two disappointments: (1) they had no goat cheese that evening so it eliminated one of the salads and some of the dishes--why not send someone to the market to get some?! (2) The bread, which we now have to pay for (!) was stale and tasteless. If you're going to charge for bread, it better be amazing!
Nice atmosphere. Attentive staff. Good selection of food. Overall, nice place to eat and relax.
Worth it. Food is great for the affordable price
I wanted a special restaurant for dinner with my best friend from So Cal and 2 local friends. Vivace was the perfect place and we had a lovely evening of good wine, delicious food, and stimulating conversation with great service from our waiter. Thanks to everyone!
We used to really enjoy going to Vivace. The place has really changed. Food is only OK, service is terrible, and outdoor dining is not enjoyable on the busy Ralston Street.The meal was also expensive. $15 for a Caesar salad is the highest I have seen. If you’re going to charge such high prices, the food and the service better be good or you’ll lose repeat customers. Sadly, I can’t say we’ll be back anytime soon.
Family gathering ad 15 year anniversary. Always the BEST meal and service. Vivace always aim to please. Love them.
Always the best on the Peninsula. I have never had a bad meal there and the service is wonderful.
We received exceptional service at Vivace. Everything was excellent.
Wife ordered osso bucco (on my recommendation as I've had it before) but it was dry (even with the sauce). Hence the 4 stars. My seafood dish with shrimp and scallops was delicious and tasty. Other guest had the scallopini which they loved.
Service was perfect. My wife's birthday dinner and they threw in a dessert with our other dessert. The lava cake was delicious as was the tiramisu.
I dont know that I would order the osso bucco again but I would definitely order the other dishes.
Excellent customer service, food consistently very good. And overall have always enjoyed our dinners at Vivace.
Get the rock cod special with mashed potatoes, sautéed spinach, and lemon caper sauce - - it’s delicious! Or substitute salmon for the cod; it’s even tastier. Try the blackberry sorbet sundae for dessert. It’s so refreshing and fresh-tasting.
Great place. Enjoy each time we eat here!!
Excellent food: italian! Full service bar and i enjoy their long island ice tea.
The price increases have been a tad expensive compared to other similar restaurants. Plus now charging for bread. Still, the food is excellent. Wish you would open for lunch.
Everything was great. The Pomegranate cocktail was wonderful. The staff was wonderful as always. And the food was fabulous as always.
It's been two years since we've had the chance to dine in here. Takeout was great but nothing beats the phenomenal experience and food when you dine in-person. Vivace has been one of our favorite Italian restaurants in the Bay Area for decades and they haven't skipped a beat.
Jimmy provided incredible service and whoever the chef is here is always on point.
App: Calamari...fresh, crispy, not overly breaded...sauces were amazing
We each had different entrees:
Squid ink seafood linguine
Chicken Parmesan with spicy pasta
Pan seared salmon on a bed of cous cous
Custom order - spicy linguine with grilled prawns
Enjoyed a bottle of 2016 Hall Cabernet. Their wine list is great and reasonable.
Consistently great food and service. Basil ‘tini is my go to cocktail.
