Vivace Restaurant is now proud to provide private dining services for large groups of up to 50 guests. Our new location - nestled in the beautiful Catalina Mountains - offers a spacious, comfortable and inviting private dining area. Enjoy the same award winning cuisine and professional service our restaurant has built its reputation on, in an elegant and private setting that is completely customizable and tailored to your party's needs.
While our server was pleasant enough she had too many tables to serve and her tables were located on opposites of the restaurant and consequently the service was poor. We had to ask for drinks, twice; three of the four main meals arrived at the same time and the fourth was six minutes behind those, consequently the food was luke warm and honestly, not the best. It already looked like it had sat under a warmer in the kitchen.
The noise level was high making conversation difficult.
We have enjoyed many a meal at this restaurant when it was located in St. Phillip's Square but since its move sometime ago now, it has not maintained its previous high standard.
This is a place best for lunch and a salad.
Great food and wine list. Building and setting with view of the valley is beautiful. I was at a big named steakhouse the night before and paid twice what I paid at Vivace. Vivace is ten times better.
A little pricey for lunch ($50) all though I did have a dinner item. The stuffed shrimp is marvelous. I order it all the time. Service was good, view of the city great. Looking forward to next visit.
First time there to celebrate a birthday. The Food was good, service okay, and way too noisy. I was expecting a great fine dining experience. The noise level was horrible and probably the only reason why I would not go back.
As always, Vivace exceeds expectations for food, service and atmosphere. We have been patrons for over 30 years and this our favorite restaurant in Tucson. It was my wife's birthday and she appreciated the attention as well as the complimentary dessert.
We had a marvelous meal. We each ordered the sliced filet mignonette on toast with Marsala sauce. It’s clearly our favorite among Vivace’s many excellent choices. David took great care of us, even proving some take out for later. Annie & Juneau greeted us graciously at ingress. And egress. We always feel comfortably welcome at Vivace thanks to your excellent staff. We’ll be back!
Overall experience was very pleasant and perfect for my anniversary. We will definitely be coming back. Pricey but absolutely cannot complain with the kind of service, view, and food we got!
Great food which is hard to find in Tucson. Friendly servers, casual yet classy environment. This is a wonderful place for special occasions, business dinners or just to spoil yourself.
Thank you Vivace Chefs & Staff for another wonderful night!
Birthday dinner, but this place is great for any occasion. By far the best restaurant in Tucson. Always quality service and food.
Really tasty food and great service. We dine here frequently and it’s consistently good. Food tends to be very rich, with lots of oil and butter.
We love this restaurant and we are never disappointed! Food, views and service is wonderful!
The food and presentation are wonderfully done. The wait staff are very attentive without being overbearing. The scenery and views are outstanding, instead of being repetitive every time my wife and I patronize your beautiful establishment we can only think of one word to describe our visits “Outstanding” thank you so much for being in Tucson.

We didn’t have appetizers. Our entrees arrived only minutes after we ordered. They were good, but not noteworthy. We had a tiramisu for dessert, which was the worst we’ve ever had. Surprising, as this is categorized as an upscale Italian restaurant. Our waiter was nice, but he did forget about us twice. When we attempted to ask a table setter/busperson for help, she responded by saying, “..,give me a minute.” She gave us this terse and unacceptable response while setting the table next to ours. This is an indicator of the level of service, or rather, the lack of service given at Vivace. The ambience is very charming and pretty.
We had a fine time. Neal took good care of us on aa very busy afternoon. We both requested the sliced filet mignonette on focaccia bread in Marsala sauce - excellent! I carried out two entrees with two desserts for the next day. Great food, fair pricing, attentive, friendly staff. We’ll be back!
The food, service, and ambience at Vivace are always top notch! Our server Candace was exceptional!! Their osso bucco is one of the best that I have ever had anywhere! And we always splurge on the spinach and cheese soufflé appetizer with a delicious house made cheese sauce.
My partner and I went for a date night. It was actually our first date spot 4 years ago. The food is always consistently delicious and the service is always impeccable. They made an ordinary date night extraordinary. Thank you so much!
We have had our last 4 Birthday dinners here, they do an absolutely outstanding job from Valet to desert,, thanks
Amazing food, impeccable service & lovely views. This is, hands down, our favorite restaurant in Tucson. We come at least twice a month and are NEVER disappointed. We celebrate every New Year’s Eve here as it is my husband’s birthday and his first choice for amazing, flavorful food and a great atmosphere. Don’t hesitate, it is well worth it!
Always fantastic food and great service! I will always make it my special occasion place!
Family get together celebrating a Birthday, the food, the service was excellent. We had an awesome time and it was a party of eight people. The right place for a memorable evening.
went for my girlfriends surprise birthday dinner. Staff was amazing, food was all delicious! I would recommend the roasted eggplant
Ordered stuffed shrimp and the shrimp were farm raised and had zero taste. The appetizers were great but would not order an entre' again. The presentation was poor with a bowl of rice just poured in the center of the plate. Only ate 1/2 of the dinner.
Excellent food and service. Love the spinach salad, seafood lasagnette and the tiramisou.
As always well prepared food and the very best service, tonight from Felix. We always love the bread, the salads and tonight had the special appetizer of mussels and the wonderful penne pasta and pork parmigiana, followed by the best Tiramisu and Creme Brûlée in Tucson. Just delightful. Thank you, Vivace.
As always, great food, beautiful ambiance, excellent service!
Fabulous, as usual, signature dish - sliced filet mignon over focaccia bread in Marsala sauce. Istvan took great care of us with prompt, friendly service. We took home the four-cheese manicotti with tiramisu and fresh berries for dessert — greatl enjoyed!
Thank you, Daniel Scordato for maintaining continued excellence in staff, cuisine & ambiance at Tucson’s best restaurant. We’ll be back!
Service was unbeatable. Good was liked by all. Now that we know the facility, we can request the seating option to make the experience even better.
Brother and his wife were in town. Eaten at Vivace’s many time. Always one of my favoriates
Every time we dine at Vivace we always leave saying "that was a great experience, as usual". We were welcomed by Yvonne who always makes you feel so welcome. We were seated at a great window table, which offers stunning views of the entire Tucson Valley.
The food and service was great and we will be back soon.
Consistently excellent! Still the best restaurant in Tucson.
Great time and excellent service - very consistent.
Food was great and our waiter was very friendly and sweet! Great service!
Had the eggplant which was beyond yum! Green salad fresh and crunchy. Vivace has some of the most delicious food in Tucson! And...the prices for lunch are more than reasonable!
Beautiful view, great ambiance. Food is delicious and service is great. A favorite place to dine.
One of our favorite fine dining Italian places in Tucson. Everything about it is great.
The food and service were impeccable as they are every time I visit this restaurant
Every visit is a wonderful experience.
Was in for my monthly fix of sautéed chicken w/green peppercorn sauce & capers. Good comfort food.
Great service but overpriced. Food was good but have had better authentic Italian.
