First time at this restaurant. Was pleasantly surprised. Great service, enjoyable atmosphere and high quality food.
Our favorite restaurant for special occasions. We were so happy to be back after a year and a half. Still the same wonderful experience. :)
What a treasure in Tucson. We're new to the area, but were told Vivace was a must-not-miss. Celebrated a special birthday with four friends. Service was exceptional, food was sublime, great view. Will definitely return. Solid wine list and not overpriced! GREAT Job, Vivace!
Both the daily seafood special and the Stuffed Pork Chop were delicious. The price for both dishes was very reasonable and a good value. Vivace is not cheap but worth the price.
Appreciated Jackie’s excellent service.
Our favorite restaurant in Tucson.
Never fails to please. Service was perfect and food delicious. A little noisy with a couple tables celebrating birthdays. Don’t understand people who think they are the only ones around. Maybe too much wine! Once they left the atmosphere was perfect
My husband and I just recently moved to Green Valley From Chicago and he took me here for my birthday. It was fabulous. The food was prepared exquisitely and our waiter was attentive and helpful. I couldn’t ask for a better place to dine in Tucson.
As always the experience was excellent. Our server was wonderful and the food was fantastic.
The last time I visited Vivaci’s was the old location. This visit was so impressive. The food and service were outstanding. Will put this on our list of top restaurants in Tucson. Be back soon!
Vivace has been one of Tucson's best restaurants for many years, and you can always count on excellent food and service. I always recommend them to friends who are visiting the Tucson area.
Beautiful views, incredible service and stellar food. Incredible way to celebrate our 15th anniversary, thank you to Vivace for making it so special.
Absolutely delicious! Wonderful views of the mountains and Tucson. You can’t go wrong with any of the seating options or food choices on the menu. Definitely save room for dessert!!
A lovely setting, great food and service. Best to reserve to avoid disappointed.
Always a great experience
Vivace never disappoints. We had a table with a lovely view of the city, great service and the food was wonderful.
SUPERB FOOD--RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY--HAVE EATEN HER 10 TIMES AND NEVER BEEN DISAPPOINTED--OUR FAVORITE RESTAURANT FOR SURE---MEAL IS WORTH THE MONEY---DR. JOHN KREMPEN
I am never disappointed while dining at Vivace. In fact, I compare all other dining experiences to the quality and value received at Vivace. Whether you are looking for a business lunch location, a leisure brunch on the weekend or a romantic dinner, Vivace is an excellent choice.
Always love every dining experience we’re have here. Thanks again for such a wonderful evening! Our server (so sorry I don’t recall her name) was the best!
Excellent experience, excellent food, excellent service
Dinner was wonderful as usual, it seemed like the service was a bit slower than usual, but not bad at all. the food was perfectly cooked and the choices were great. Wine prices were reasonable and the appetizer was terrific. This is our celebration restaurant, the best in Tucson.
Our server, Jennifer, was excellent. We need to come to Vivace for times other than Anniversaries and Birthdays.
Love the fact you can share dishes. Otherwise the delicious pear-walnut salad would be too huge and we couldn't both enjoy the fantastic manicotti and our favorite chicken stuffed with crab (just a tad dry this time, though).
Vivace remains Tucson’s premier restaurant for me. Never been disappointed.
Truly outstanding, as usual. Our server, Bella, went out of her way to take great care of the two of us at our weekly business lunch at Vivace Restaurant, clearly Tucson’s Finest!
Amid these challenging days for the hospitality industry, crippled by the vast effects of the Wuhan-Virus/Kungflu, the staff of this marvelous bistro continue to work very hard to provide excellence in dinning. My friend enjoyed the eggplant parm., and I delighted in the Ora King Salmon topping off the Vivace signature, Pears & Walnut Salad.
Bella also assisted me in obtaining two, take-out portions of “RBC,” Red Bird Chicken dinner in peppercorn cream sauce, complemented by Vivace’s special Tiramisu, truly both great favorites of my wife! “Oh, are you guys going up to Vivace? Please, bring me their fabulous chicken in cream sauce with garlic mashed potatoes!” Yes, indeed, after 45 years of loving marriage, she gets what she wants! On occasions too numerous to count, she and I have enjoyed entertaining guests at this superb establishment. Never a bad meal! Always, simply superlative!
We celebrated our 58th wedding anniversary, and it was wonderful. Service from Kevin, the food, the setting. Bravo!!
One of our very favorite Tucson restaurants, EVER! Always great food and great service. We hadn't been to Tucson in several years but couldn't wait to go back to Vivace once we got to town. We weren't disappointed and our server, Kamran, was awesome, as was the Chicken and Asparagus Risotto and Penne with Sausage! And, to top it off, the owner, Daniel Scordato, provided a friendly greeting upon entering! Perfect and highly recommended!
Overall experience was super. Menu was wide ranging and excellent. Food preparation was right on. Service was exceptional.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson! The food is consistently amazing and the ambiance is wonderful. I highly recommend Vivace.
Elegant, great food, intimate setting, amazing date night.
Very attentive service. Even on a busy Saturday evening!
Vivace was a great experience. Kind staff, and amazing food. I would recommend this place to everyone I know.
Great restaurant for date night, anniversary, birthday, etc.
Great service,great food and great drinks! We’ll be back!
The birthday of my husband wasn’t acknowledged even though when I made reservation I put it in the notes.
Hostess and wait my staff weren’t particularly friendly.
Margarita served in a stemless wine glass wasn’t any good.
Salad (walnuts and pears) was not very flavorful. Fish of the day (halibut) was underwhelming, but veggie rice was awesome.
We have enjoyed Vivace since we moved here in 1994. They always provide the most wonderful meals and service in Tucson. Seeing how there is so little turnover in staff helps the restaurant feel like it is being run by family! The food is delicious, the bread and pesto are incredible!
The best restaurant in Tucson. Kamran is a treasure!
Best food and service everytime. We love the food and views.
The food was excellent as always. Love the view. The staff was wonderful. Our favorite restaurant. We took a new retiree to celebrate.
Always great. My favorite restaurant in all of Tucson.
