We went for New Years Eve dinner and they had a Prifix Menu. It was excellent. Usually these Holiday meals are not up to the standards of the restaurant but at Vivace it was excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The food was delicious as always. My Dad and I go there every Christmas Eve when he’s in town. Service was a bit lacking. We just didn’t see her much. I ordered a glass of wine prior to ordering my salad, which I finished with my salad, but sat through my whole entree with an empty wine glass. The server came over to ask if I wanted another glass when I was done with my meal. Otherwise everything was good.

Food was delicious as always but the service was a bit disappointing. We had to ask twice for one thing we requested and never received a second request. The server was very friendly and attentive when at our table but seemed to forget things as it got busier. This would not be surprising at an average restaurant but I expect a bit more at a restaurant like Vivace.

Food is always delicious, but as per usual, service is lacking. We were seated and then it seemed as if the waitress forgot she had our table. She was pleasant enough when she finally took our order, but forgot my husbands drink.

The food here is always outstanding. We had mussels and gluten free brussels which were both delicious! Caesar salad, scallops risotto, and spaghetti with meat balls left us too full for dessert so next time we may start with that menu which looked very tasty!

I would definitely recommend Vivace to friends but only if outdoor temp is above 50 degrees. The seating in majority of restaurant got a blast of unwelcomed frigid air as patrons entered and exited. There are wind shields to envelope doorways exposed to direct air flow —made for restaurants’ use. Vivace needs to investigate and be prepared as it will make for a much more pleasant dining experience.

Dinner and service was great. However the fire alarm went off and kept on for probably close to 15 minutes, which was very disruptive for our dinner. I have eaten there many times and have never had it happen before, but it was less than ideal.

Always on point service with very good food and interesting options on the menu. A neighborhood favorite for dinner out but vivace can deliver a regular weeknight dinner or a special occasion memorable experience.

Server was great, food was great! This was our first time having dinner here. I’m impressed-not only with the quality of the food and service-but the speed and accuracy of the order. In my experience, restaurants this busy often have accuracy issues with orders.

I truly enjoyed my food and the service was great. They seemed to pick up on when we needed them.

Wine list was tops.

A bit too noisy for a book club if you sit inside. Previously, I had sat outside and will likely do it again in milder weather.

the food was especially good tonight.. loved the lamb shank; the ricotta gnocchi with meat were fabulous; the veal saltimocca could have been a bit more tender (why dont you pound it) but the sauce was fabulous. Just wish it wasnt so LOUD.. not energetic.. difficult to have a conversation

The Ricotta Gnocchi and the Cesar Salad was delicious. Our waiter was excellent. We had reservations at 6 which was nice and quiet. As it starts filling it gets pretty loud.

This is one of my favorite go-to spots for lunch or dinner. This reservation was for a business lunch. Beautiful day so we sat on the outside patio. Food and service excellent, and presentation well done.
