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.
Ambiance is great! Food came out promptly and was amazing.
Great food great time
First time visiting Vivace, and will definitely return. Exceptional service and the food was great!
Very good. Lots of healthy options. Great salads and veggies and seafood. Caters to many dietary requests. Would definitely return.
Atmosphere, service, and food were all amazing. I'd definitely go back again and again!!
Fabulous, as usual.
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
Amazing food & great service. You HAVE to get the raviolis and meatballs!
Excellent as always!
Table for 6. A wonderful memorable evening. Service was wonderful! Food was delicious. Thank you Kevin.
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.
Perfect location for lunch with the ladies. The food and service were excellent. (loved the mussels)
The noise level was acceptable
We go every other Friday after symphony, so glad you all keep the kitchen open past 10!!
Nice anniversary dinner at Vivace. Would be great to have heaters on the patio for outdoor seating on chilly evenings.
the Meal was outstanding. We had the fettuccine and pappardelle. So yummy! The aioli for the calamari fritti was amazing. Our server Michael was very, very good.
The home made pasta is outstanding. On par with what I’ve had in Italy!
Great food and service. Lovely place! I recommend the Pasta! 👍🏻
I liked the ambiance and the location. Being from New Jersey. Only thing was I felt we were being stared at the whole time. But the food was great
Food and service were both great
Had a very enjoyable meal and our waiter was very good.
First time eating at Vivace. We celebrated our anniversary and it was very nice. We did not feel rushed. Our waiter, William was pleasant and very helpful. He made great suggestions, the veal was great and ribeye wonderful! Will definitely return!
Fresh food served warm and delicious. Good service
This was our first time at Vivace. We went here as a date and got a few apps and split a salad and pasta entree. The service was excellent and attentive but not overbearing. The food was super tasty and came out at the right times. It was fairly busy on the Friday night we went but didn’t feel rushed and the wait times for apps and food was not long. We also loved it wasn’t loud with kids or large group parties. Overall this is a great place for a date night or small intimate, group dinner.
Server provided great recommendations and was very friendly.
Food was not bad, service was excellent, ambiance was also very nice. Pricing was good too
Vivace has always been a standard go to for me and I love their patio seating. However, they do not spray for bugs, so I always get bit (need to spray for mosquitoes), so have gone way less and now I have tried post-mosquito season and there are cockroaches all over the place, which is extremely unappealing. The food was good, but not stellar like it has been in the past as well. I hope that this will not be the continued trend!
Food is always great! Waiter was attentive - this is one of our favorites in Raleigh!
Magical dinner under the stars on a beautiful fall evening!
So, food was very good! However it was coming way to fast!
Literally we just finished our appetizers and 2 min later we had our main course.
We have ordered cappuccino - and in Italy it is a shot of coffee with foam. Here most of the our cup it was coffee . Also the tables could be bit bigger
We were so lucky to eat outside on a perfect fall evening. Our server was wonderful, the food was fabulous. We shared the meat and cheese plate with our cocktails. Our entrees were delicious. Salmon was prepared perfectly, four cheese ravioli for my husband. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions and any day of the week. Now about the flies. Oh well. Nature...
We love Vivace. Having first tried their sister restaurant in Wilmington, we made a reservation at Vivace for our anniversary. We have been back 3 times since the end of July. Great service, great food, it has been an equally great experience every visit. We will be back soon.
I chose Vivace to treat my mentee to celebrate her new job and all the hard work she put into our work together. Also, I have food sensitivities and the servers and kitchen always make it easy for me to navigate to something delicious and safe. They never make me feel bad and took great care of us.
The sorbet was excellent!!
Consistently very good food quality and attention to detail!
The veal was not very good. It was over cooked. The waiter was very nice but slow in bringing drinks.
Food here is always outstanding. Service was a bit slower than normal.
We had an outstanding experience at Vivace celebrating my husband's birthday. Our server William was beyond amazing! He was extremely knowledgeable about wine, helped me make some great gluten free choices and explained the difference between the pan seared brussel sprouts and the flash fried as it relates to cross contamination with gluten. He even sent out a little birthday treat from the chef. The ambiance was great for a Friday night and we will certainly be back soon .
Great food! Loved the gnocchi, inventive dessert (popcorn gelato), and the outdoor patio was lovely on a warm evening.
