Top notch food and service always characterizes a dining experience at Vivace. Don’t miss the baked Brussels sprouts and the mussels. Great Italian restaurant. A bit noisy.
The calamari appetizer is a must enjoy. The portion size was surprisingly large and a great value! No one in our party could identify the "mystery citrus shavings" that gave the dish a surprising burst of flavor. This is a wonderful place for date night or a special event.
The food was outstanding, the atmosphere was up-beat and the service was excellent
The restaurant environment was very beautiful. Service was amazing. Food was spectacular. I don’t have anything negative to say about Vivace. Great date night!
Very good food. Server did a fine job. One of our favorite places to dine in Raleigh.
The service is excellent and the food is wonderful. Lunch on Saturday is a great time to go for a date with your spouse.
Vivace is awesome! I dine here often as I live in the neighborhood...the food is always exceptional, the wait staff is always friendly and super attentive...it is a great place for a special occasion or just a casual exceptional brunch, lunch or dinner.
The meal was phenomenal as ALWAYS. One of my favorite dinner spots. Service was excellent and highly recommend to anyone in the area.
Everything we try here is exceptional! The entrees and appetizers are creative and have many flavor notes. This is one of our "must go to" restaurants every time we are in Raleigh.
The food was amazing, but because it was valentines day there was a special menu which had good choices. We had the whole 4 course meal and luck we did because with the portion of each course picking one individually would have left us both still hungry. All in all we still has an amazing night.
Prix fixe menu on Valentine’s Day was of good quality, service was outstanding, and the wine selections were excellent.
Overall a very pleasant dinner.
Valentines special was good but way too much food and pricey!
Friends and concert night
Returned to Vivace on a Wednesday night after their recent renovation ( after an unplanned pipe burst) however I think Vivace might be loosing the plot that had placed this vibrant restaurant in a best of class category. Food here as always was spot on but the place seems to have become noisier and clearly other than the excellent reception staff, the wait staff seem to be in a chaotic dance . I am hoping it was just our waiter and one close by but its an are the management might take a look at.
One evening of dumb service should not be an indictment but it is an alarm bell I hope Vivace pays attention to as this is normally a very reliable sophisticated eatery.
We had a great time, did a double date. Food was great and so was the service
One of our favorite places to spend a Friday evening! Great food, great cocktails, and a great atmosphere !
Restaurant was closed and was not notified in advance.
There was a water leak or frozen pipes, but the restaurant was closed with only a note taped to the door. Not impressed!
Love love, Brussels Sprouts hands down the best and good in general is always consistent. I’ve had parties there, girls lunches and dinners hands down of if the best in town
Very delicious and well worth it! Service was excellent.
