    We ate out on the patio for lunch where it was as quiet w lovely plants and view. Service was perfect. We had the antipasto plate and the branzini fish special. All delicious as was the bread and their special basil garlic pesto. The glasses of Chianti Classico were very generous pours and were a great accompaniment to a wonderful dining experience.

    Vivace is truly a hidden gem in Tucson. Absolutely one of the best restaurants. Daniel ,the owner, is always there greeting you with a smile, no matter the reason you are there Daniel always makes you feel like the most important customer. We have been patrons for 5+ years and the quality has always been high and the best service in all of Tucson restaurants. The food quality is miles above the other restaurants in town and always has fresh ingredients and top notch service.

    A wonderful experience overall! Food was superb with very few exceptions. Service attentive, caring, friendly, and professional. Nice view over the Tucson city. Salmon was great, although the rock shrimp was not needed, and actually a bit fishy. The sautéed spinach accompanying was wonderful. Buratta two ways simply superb. Dressing on the arugula was just right. Spinach salad also superb, with nice pine nuts and a semisweet dressing that was not overpowering. The special branzino was sublime! Perfectly grilled with a delicious bed of creamed cauliflower and grilled asparagus. Very nice wine list filled out the excellence of this gem in the foothills. If we lived in Tucson, this would certainly be one of our favorite haunts!

    always great food. great service and drinks. Menu looks a little dated, they don't change it much except for fish of the day, which is mostly a white flaky fish, but everything and I mean everything served is first class and delicious. This is a special place, for special occasions, or just a great meal cooked to perfection, at a price that is competitive for the times.

    We were surprised how busy it was for Monday. Prompt to get us to our table. The young man filling our water glasses was very attentive and quick to take our plates and box up leftovers. David our server told us about the specials, clarified for my hubby about the types of rum. He was very busy, brought our appies, had to wait a little for entrees, absolutely delicious. My seafood soup was as delicious as one I had in the Mediterranean and generous enough to provide me with lunch today. Dessert a little slow in arriving but we can highly recommend the brûlée and apple bread pudding! Great views, too chilly to take advantage of outside seating!

    We have been to Vivace at least a hundred times over the years. The experience is always what you hope for. We have a server that we prefer to have each time. There are friends and acquaintances we know that prefer other servers each time. Either way, that is part of the experience. They always do their best to accommodate. The team in the back of the house is always on point with their items, prep, and timing. The front-of-the-house staff is courteous and eager to create the best experience for their guests. We always recommend Vivace to both in-towners and out-of-towners alike. Great food and amazing service. Always looking forward to our next visit!

    The food was excellent. The taste and presentation were very on point. The atmosphere was absolutely stunning, with beautiful mountain views, visible from inside the restaurant thanks to the huge windows all around. Our waiter was kind and knowledgeable. Overall an astounding dinner at a place that I would definitely recommend trying!
