Server was really rude, didn’t not bring bread to the table, never asked for reorders of drinks, never checked to see if the food was ok and had an attitude when I confronted him regarding the lack of service and quality.

Food was ok, fish was salty and the broccolini was really bitter and inedible. The pizza was just bad with nothing but cheese and no flavor.

Pick any other place but this for any occasion.

Service was ok. Our server was very chatty with other staff !
Food was great. The Caesar salad was delicious and the presentation was beautiful. I had the salmon and even though I requested medium minus it was well done but still tasty.
My husband had the flatbread pizza and he enjoyed it.

My experience at Vivace was WONDERFUL! I made reservations there for my boyfriend's birthday and I am so glad I did. The service was exceptional, the food was incredible, and our waitress gave my boyfriend complimentary gelato for his birthday. We will definitely go back!

I have been at this restaurant before and had a better dinner experience but not so much this time. The cauliflower soup was too salty but my spouse stated his meal was good. Also, I was a little unnerved by the expediter touching the food with his hands and wiping sweat from his face at the same time. If you are going to have an open kitchen, definitely need sanitary practices!

Went for Brunch and had great food and the Bloodies and Mimosas were excellent as well. Nice ambiance and the food was very diversified and delicious with nice portions. Service was very good and will look forward to another trip to Vivace.

Vivace is a favorite! We had a lovely evening as always. Our meal came out a little later than normal but the waiter did his best to keep us apprized.

We required gluten-free dining due to Celiac Disease, and we reiterated multiple times that we were ordering from the Gluten Free menu (which is great that they have). After dinner was placed on the table, all looked fine. However, after the individual with Celiac had consumed half of his meal, we realized that there was a piece of bread buried under a mountain of food. Therefore, I would NOT recommend Vivace to anyone with food sensitivities since staff does not appear to be adequately trained.

Looking for great pasta before a race. This was a great choice - great selections and great taste. Initial service was excellent - but then slowed after we finished our pasta and ordered dessert. My latte seemed to have gotten lost until I tracked down a host to find it. Restaurant very full. Heather excellent personality and helpful. I would definitely go back.

We had dinner at Vivace prior to a concert at the Spectrum Center and it was fantastic. Great food, atmosphere and service.

Brunch was phenomenal!!! The Strawberry Parfait with Greek yogurt was the most delicious, refreshing appetizers. Grilled salmon was perfectly cooked. My husband had the short rib hash and loved it. Poached eggs on top was a nice touch.

Even though we had a large party and added more people last minute, they accommodated us very well! Service is always great

A unique brunch spot that serves tasty dishes. The brunch special comes at a great value compared to most brunch experiences. Bottomless Mimosas and Bloody Marys gets your weekend day started off right!

It's mediocre Italian food at best. Luckily we went on Restaurant Week so we have to pay full price for what they served. Service was extremely slow there were times where the drinks came after the food we had asked several times for our drinks to come to our table at one point we even asked a manager and that was confusing for him to understand why wouldn't have our drinks. And when we arrived the saddest down and then told us nope sorry we gave you the wrong table you're going to have to wait a little longer.
