    We always enjoy our meals at Vivace. The view is beautiful and the food is delicious. If you are looking for a special meal for a special occasion, this is your place. This time we were there for lunch and ordered the portobello stuffed mushrooms with a large side salad (that came with the meal) and crab cakes with a delicious aoli sauce and side salad on the plate. With the delicious bread that was also served, we were very satisfied and did not have room for any of their delicious desserts. We are willing to drive 45 minutes for this wonderful restaurant.

    A bit disappointing as it wasn’t like it has been in the past. The pear and walnut salad looked lovely but there were very few pears which were cut up into slivers so I had to search to find them. The seafood soup was excellent. Service was good. In making our reservations I checked that it was a birthday lunch but it wasn’t acknowledged in any way. So, yes, I was somewhat disappointed.

    Celebrated my husbands 65th and Vivace is always our first choice when choosing to dine on some amazing food. The place was hopping. Fabulous wine, waiter Patrick was wonderful even though he had some big table groups to serve he still was attentive. Escargot, Cheese Soufflé and Stuffed roasted shrimp were amazing. Tiramisu was delicious too.

    I’ve been wanting to try Vivace for a while but caution about Covid interfered. We decided to try it for our 25th anniversary lunch and we were more than pleased! First, the restaurant is beautiful inside and out, tables well spaced, with a spectacular view of the Catalina Foothills. Then came the crispy bread and the best dipping pesto I’ve ever had. We were ready to just eat this and forget lunch! But we came to our senses and had a delicious lunch of eggplant lasagna for me and shrimp and crab cakes for my husband. We tasted each other’s and agreed they were both excellent. When asked about desert, we said yes, that it was our anniversary, and our server went to the kitchen and brought us a crème brûlée and fresh berries and candles to share. It was the perfect top off for a very special restaurant experience.
