There was a water leak or frozen pipes, but the restaurant was closed with only a note taped to the door. Not impressed!

Service wasn’t great- waitress was not personable and strictly to the point.. which is fine but she had a slight attitude. Kind of disappointed since this was our first time here. It was also my birthday and it was a let down- waitress didn’t even ask what we were dining for like most establishments.

Only issue was that some tables in the main part of the restaurant (two-toppers on the left as you walk in) and the sofa area in the bar were very brightly lit. The overall ambient lighting levels were fine though. The sofa area should be a cozy, relaxing place but the way it was lit we thought surgery could be done there. Other restaurants have the same problem when they use recessed spot lights and then not dimming them properly.

Excellent service and wonderful food. They accommodated our party of 8 for a 40th birthday beautifully. Incredible service!

Panini Sandwich was delicious, the pasta salad side was below par. Dry and tasteless. Service was excellent!

The food and service were outstanding and, while not my cup of tea, the extensive wine collection that encircles the dining room is very impressive. This is one of North Hills hidden gems and a must try for everyone in the area.

Vivace has been one of our favorites for years. They provide consistently excellent cuisine, and their service is always first rate. A visiting family member from out of town was making her first visit to Vivace on this occasion, and she thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
