Vivace is one of our favorite Italian restaurants. Excellent menu selection! Standing menus items and specials of the day are always delicious. Prepration and presentation A+. Service is outstanding!
Great Restaurant went for 27th Anniversary. Everything was Delicious! Wish I had reserved a table by the window. Definately go the again!!
Vivace is my favorite Tucson restaurant for special occasions. Truly delicious and not overpriced for such a fancy dinner. I have been several times and highly recommend the antipasto for two, the chicken with eggplant, and the molten lava cake dessert.
We had a very good experience and the meal was outstanding!! Our waiter was very personable and attentive. Can't wait to come back!!
An Awesome dining experience!! I truly enjoy this restaurant.
The food was quite simply outstanding ( as usual). The service was excellent when the server made it to the table but she clearly either had too many tables or the kitchen was perhaps understaffed because service was at an almost painful slow snails pace. The restaurant did not seem that busy. Seemed strange. I would be back again but this time was not the great experience one is accustomed to at Vivace.
Our favorite restaurant! Always great service, amazing food and beautiful view of the mountains!
We were visiting Tuscon and had a craving for Italian food.
The food was amazing!
Best I’ve had for some time.
Appetizer of escargot was unique and tasty.
Pork patty with angel hair and red sauce my husband raves about. He could barely finish. Plenty of food.
I had seafood soup and the seafood was plentiful and the pasta was a nice addition. I can’t get enough of fresh seafood (Not fried) and the soup was plentiful and seafood was perfectly cooked.
I’m a pesto nut, the pesto and fresh bread was over the top.
The wine and cocktails were spot on.
We are tempted to drive to Tucson just to have Italian food!
I would make reservations as it appears they have a regular following and tables fill up fast. We prefer to dine earlier and I was amazed how many other early diners did the same.
Additionally, staff was attentive and helpful when trying to determine two entree choices.
Wonderful place, you must try! It’s a keeper in our dining choices when visiting Tucson.
As ALWAYS Vivace’s NEVER disappoints 💕🎶💕🎶
It was an outstanding epicurean experience to have had lunch at this exceptional restaurant and NO I am not an employee or their marketing agency. The food was absolutely great. My wife and I had the Pink Snapper which was the special for the day. Our daughter had the crab cakes. A wonderful experience and if you are in the northern part of Tucson, you would be missing something special if you didn't try this place for lunch or dinner.
The service was awful. We were there for lunch and it took a really long time to have a waiter show up. He rushed us through our meal. The food was good but was disappointed with the service. Would not return to this restaurant.
Vivace is always a wonderful place for lunch or dinner. The food always lives up to expectations and the service is wonderful. A pleasure to celebrate being alive there.
Birthday. Everything was perfect.
We celebrated my sister-in-laws birthday. She and my brother drove from Phoenix to eat there with us. I told them it was the best Italian food in AZ. They loved it and will definitely be back. We eat there often, especially birthdays! Thank you for providing us a window view. I have eaten there many, many times and this is our first window view. I really appreciate this.
Dan and Pat Hill
mentioned it was birthday and it was totally forgotten
Has been consistently exceptional for the past 24 years I have been eating there. Best restaurant in Tucson.
Daniel provides you the best restaurant in the city! It just doesn't get any better!
Excellent service! Food was very good as well would definitely recommend. A little pricey.
As always the food was Fantastic and the service was excellent!!
Jameel is an amazing waitress and the food is always wonderful
Virtually everything about this experience was excellent, except, the 1st drink arrived lukewarm instead of chilled as requested......
Very nice, very pleasant experience that accomplished what I wanted it to for a very special lady in my life. Thank you.
Vivace has been my number one in Tucson for 20+ years. Reason: Consistency is #1 --
Always perfect service, fairly priced menu, beautifully presented, elegant food but friendly atmosphere. The wait staff is amazing--Felix, Tess and Stephanie, are among my favorites.
Danny Scordato has maintained a level of sustained quality that is to be envied by all restauranteurs! Viviace is a main reason that Tucson is acclaimed for great food!!
I can always count on Vivace to provide excellent food and service.
Kate the bartender, Ebi the maitred, and our server Ishvan. All amazing!!!
Vivace is our favorite fine dining experience in the Tucson area. It never disappoints......view, service, food, cleanliness, friendliness of the staff, ambience, and landscaping are all superior. Highly recommend the seafood stuffed shrimp and that's quite a compliment since I live on the Sea of Cortez 1/2 of the year and you can't get better shrimp than there! It's very comparable.
Everything was wonderful! Of special note were the delicate homemade pasta and the fun antipasto. All meats and fish were cooked perfectly and sauces were heavenly.
This is the perfect place for special occasions. The views of the city and the foothills aren't bad either!
I had the fish of the day and asked for the substitution of mashed potatoes instead of rice.
Mine fried did the same. OMG-just the best mashed potatoes since a big dinner years ago on the family farm in Ohio. Mashed potatoes combined with the way the fish was prepared; divine food!
We have eaten here regularly for years and have never been disappointed in the food quality and service.
What more can you say about such a fine restaurant that you have eaten at for more than 20 years that has always had excellently prepared food, creatively presented with attentive service that never is over-the-top, and has a very good bar with an extensive, impressive list of wines at a variety of cost levels. Vivace remains the absolute best restaurant in Tucson, AZ.
great food, service was horrible.....need to get better wait staff.
This is by far the finest restaurant in Tucson. Quality of food, drink, and service is second to none.
The food is magnificent. It always is. And their desserts are fabulous, especially the bread pudding! The service can't be beat.
Perfect place to celebrate a birthday.
We were a party of 5 and asked for quiet spot and that is what we got. The service is exceptional. The food always consistently good. The birthday girl received a Tarimasu desert with candle.
We joined another couple to celebrate my husband's birthday. They all really enjoyed their meals. I wasn't thrilled with mine, but I had a lovely burrata appetizer and spumoni for dessert. Our waitress was very pleasant.
As usual, a wonderful lunch and a sunny and beautiful setting with just enough elegance to make a lunch out with friends extra special. The Spinach and Cheese Souffle and the Caesar salads were excellent. Vivace's is a true gem!
We have been here numerous times, always excellent. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced. You can always expect fresh and well prepared food, no mater what you order. The service is excellent and you will never be disappointed.
Great first experience enjoying fresh dinner salads, fish soup and custom made pesto/pasta/ shrimp. Amazing Italian bread, yes flown in from NY but something this old east coast couple miss. Enough to bring home some leftovers. No room for dessert. Will try again when in town
We were in Tucson for vacation and wanted a nice place to eat. I picked Vivace because it was Italian and had really good reviews. We went and waited for someone to seat us for almost 10 minutes. 3 people came to us to say someone would be with us in a minute. It took so long I wondered if they were trying to get us to leave by not seating us. Finally we were seated. Our server was super nice. The food was good but not as good as I expected. None of us thought it was great. We didn’t even have dessert which is something I always look forward to. I would not return. For the money I spent, I want great food and friendly staff. Or super friendly staff and good food.
Have always had wonderful service and food at Vivace and we had just that for these special occasions
