Vivace's never disappoints. Another great meal with friends!
Everything was great! Waiter was awesome and food was amazing!!
It is consistent in both food, and service. Always good.
Very good meal. Slow drink service.
Great outdoor dining
Great good! Great service-thank you Kevin!! Loved the scallop risotto! Amazing! The Brussels sprouts and calamari excellent as well.
Good. Loud. Great food!
Went here for early Mother’s Day celebration....excellent dinner and waiter was great! Will be back!
The noise was too much to handle, it was impossible to have a conversation around the table.
Early Mother’s Day...was great as usual.
Service was great and the food was top notch! We celebrated our daughter's graduation and it was a wonderful evening...thanks for making it special!
Fun and romantic outdoor terrace for drinks or to dine.
Best ceasar salad in Raleigh.
Great food, good service
Very nice restaurant, unfortunately for the price, the food portions were too small. For the price I feel I would’ve gotten a better deal at Bonefish. It was my Wife’s Birthday so we tried Vivace for a new experience. We tried and won’t be back.
Excellent service. Great outdoor seating. Highly recommend in North Hills!
We enjoyed our meal and will be returning soon
Food and service was wonderful
Our "go to" restaurant in Raleigh. Great service - food is consistently good. Make a reservation even on weekday evenings.
Amazing food! Amazing service! Outside patio is wonderful
Always a good spot. Our favorite is brunch on the patio. The food is really good and the atmosphere is great. The PEI mussels are a a must try!
Fitted our needs to a tea. Sunday brunch prior to a book signing. We dined outside on a lovely spring day.
Great food great service. Our waiter was fantastic
Nice, friendly restaurant. We loved everything start to finish.
Menu varies very little . Food is always good and the portions are adequate. This is a great place for outdoor dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Wine choices appear to be excellent. Beer choices are limited. Nice change of pace from the usual Italian resturants.
Excellent experience as always
We dined at Vivace once before and booked it again for dining before listening to one of the grps in the spring/summer music series. It was a perfect night for dining outdoors & for listening to the group that night.
The caprese salad was given a little tweak by using peeled Roma tomato halves & a pesto sauce. Ex bread, BTW! Perfect for absorbing all of the yummy sauce. The veal entree was also delicious & my husband ate every bit of it while I thoroughly enjoyed the tuna entree. Wait staff was great—several pitched in. We’ll be back!
I chose Vivace because of the location and the food. The best items on the menu are the pizzas, and the coffee encrusted beef. The best appetizer bar none is the roasted Brussel sprouts. The original dish (a year ago) contained balsamic vinegar and Calabrian spice glaze with a crema - best umami taste ever. Their latest incarnation has lemon, smoked honey vinaigrette, balsamic vinegar, buttermilk, heavy cream, apricots - amazingly delicious (and fattening). The atmosphere is great, very comfortable and our waiter was very attentive. In the past I've eaten the pasta al vodka and it was very bland, and I returned it. It needs seasoning.
Love this restaurant.
Food and service always excellent.
Had not eaten here in a long time, due to not living close by. Made the effort, and everyone was quite pleased with their meal. Service was also very good.
Awesome place for dinner and fun
Restart after their flood isn’t back to the standard they are known for. I apologized to the out-of-town guests to took that the food -which was fine- did not live up to the hype I had given them. I’ll go back and hope that things improve.
Went for late Friday nite dinner.Hate to complain but the spaghetti and meatball dish so bad...was just so salty seasoned with something like salt pork ?? Nice setting and very responsive to our comments. Part of bill reduced and dessert given but will rethink for the basic Italian pasta dish most restaurants can handle.
Vivaces always has delightful service, atmosphere, and food!
Vivace is always a delight to vist and enjoy a business meal or celebrate a special birthday or occasion. Service is prompt and couteous and food is delicious!
I have never had a bad meal at this restaurant, every time I go it’s always amazing. Can’t wait to go back.
A friend and I were here for another birthday dinner we've been sharing at Vivace twice a year for years! My friend had the veal and was richly rewarded w/ a superb mushroom sauce; my chicken special was delicious and more than generous with enough left over to take home for lunch the next day. Salads are always special here - and large - we split one w/ beets and the freshest greens dressed perfectly. Wine is reliable and generously poured. The bar makes its own Sangria - wonderful on a hot summer night on the patio.
Met a friend for dinner. Beth, our server, was perfect. There when we needed her, and unobtrusive while we visited. The roasted Brussel sprout appetizer was plenty to share and delicious. My husband had the fig and prosciutto pizza which was wonderful. Our friend had the salmon and cleaned his plate, and I had the unique but tasty gnocchi with Brussels, shitakes, and charred carrot puree. Thank you for a lovely evening.
We love dining outside, and Vivace is our favorite in Raleigh. We started with the Brussels sprouts, the best we’ve had anywhere, along with the yummy meatballs as appetizers. For entrees the bolognese is always a winner with the house-made wide pasta and perfectly seasoned meat sauce. My husband got the gnocchi and said he will order that again next time. Highly recommended! Please bring the original zeppoles back!!!!! That was our favorite dessert. So good with the caramel and chocolate sauces. The new recipe doesn’t come close. Lastly, Marvin is a great server! So pleasant and knowledgeable. Just attentive enough and always good recommendations.
Service was wonderful an the food was great. The Sprouts were a great appetizer and I never thought I would say that! Price was very good too! Will definitely be returning!
We had a great meal and they were very accommodating! We increased the number of people on a busy night. They handled it beautifully. We arrived early and were promptly seated. The hostess and waiter could not have been nicer. Great experience!!
Seared scallop & Risotto is ALWAYS amazing. Caesar salad not so much. Great atmosphere and service
Great time, food was delicious! Can't wait to go back and sit on the patio!
