Always a great place to dine. Love the new menu selections. Our server, Patrick, was friendly, professional and conscientious. Felt safe in the socially distant setting.

This is a place you can come to and dine. Everything on menu is excellent including dessert menu. So nice to sit back and relax with friends while enjoying the ambience and not being rushed out. My favorite place.

This restaurant is outstanding in every way. Our server, Vanessa, was courteous, friendly and helpful with the menu. She should be recognized by management for her tremendous attributes as a server. The escargot with artichoke is to not be missed if you are an escargot fan. My favorite dish is not on the menu but was prepared by the chef for our table...unbelievable food and service. This is our favorite restaurant in Tucson. What more can one ask for than great food, service and a view.

Our first visit, but we look forward to going back. A very good wine list. The seasonal appetizer of mussels was outstanding. Our server, Vanessa, was excellent.

Excellent cuisine and wonderful service. We arrived at 5:30pm. Reservations seem to be blocked out from 6pm to 8pm - don't know why unless saved for more "preferred" customers. For three years now I have tried to book a reservation during that time frame but with no success. Why, I don't know?

Vivace’s is by far and away our favorite Italian restaurant anywhere in the United States. We are snowbirds and have been going to Vivace’s since their original, small restaurant on Grant. The quality, service and variety of choices is even better if that is even possible. It is always a special treat to go there. It feels like coming home.

We reserved a table for our anniversary this year and Vivace did not disappoint. Salads were outstanding although I declined the anchovies on my salad. We had Veal Marsala and salmon. Both were excellent.

We were spending the day in Tucson to play golf and I googled the best restaurant in Tucson for dinner to cap off the day trip. Vivace came up so I booked it. The restaurant is very large with many dining areas. There was exceptional social distancing to make everyone feel comfortable. The views of the city were beautiful. The service and the food was wonderful.
