    I lived in Tucson for 18 years. I have been to most of the nice restaurants and Vivace always stands as my absolute favorite. Excellent food, service and overall experience. It’s the same time and time again. Always top on my list and one I always recommend to friends.

    Delightful! My guest and I each enjoyed the Chicken Caesar Salad with excellent hot coffee. Patrick kept the coffee flowing. I requested Vivace Orange Juice ~ a very nice addition to the meal! My wife requested that I bring home take-out, Veal Marsala with garlic mashed potatoes and tiramisu dessert ~ greatly appreciated. A visit to Vivace is always a joy. We’ll be back! Thank you.

    Vivace has earned the best Tucson Restaurant based on the outstanding entrees, the beautiful views, and the impeccable service. The Spinach Salad and Caesar Salad are delicious and huge! The chicken risotto and manicotti are scrumptious. Our server Omid is one of the best servers we have ever had! Monday night and the restaurant was packed! The wine list is extensively created and fairly priced!

    Wife’s Birthday. Main course was great. Everything else was out of control, in other words “terrible”. Even the drinks we ordered were terrible. We had to put sweet-n-low in our Cosmos to keep them from tasting like a Lemon Drop. Please feel free to call me if you would like to hear more on our evening at your Restaurant. Very disappointing for a husband wanting his wonderful wife to enjoy an evening out.
