Vivace Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
We needed a round table for 6 so we could have a conversation that all 6 of us could participate. Vivace's came through 100%. Our service was superb and the food was outstanding. My friends who have never been there, loved it. I was greatly impressed and grateful Vivace's made a special effort to make our get together awesome.
We each ordered as appetizer. Mussels (the daily speccial), walnut and pear salad, and the Bruatta two ways.
The mussels were probably the most tender mussels I have ever had, and the best value. The walnut salad was generous, s typical walnut pear sslad. The bruatta lacked creativity. Placing the bruatta on yuuo of beets and typing it with tomatoes was immensely underwhelming. Not bad, just underwhelming. Certainly not worth the $15! Vivace is way overpriced for food that's good but, underwhelming.
Vivace is sumptuous Always enjoy everything I have had veal Marsala crabfilled chicken breast ,pork chop stuffed and pork scallopini Always a delight to the taste budsMy friend had salmon and mushroom soup which she loved Salads are always fresh and good,have had caesar mixed green and pear and walnut,all wonderful Wine very good Dessert is heaven ,bread pudding with caramel and whipped cream,nectar from the Gods My favorite restaurant
Our experience was exquisite. A great friendly staff and servers that were very knowledgeable about the menu and variety of wines. Delicious complementary bread with an olive oil based dip.
I want to thank Vivace’s staff for the warm welcome and for taking care of every detail on our 20th wedding anniversary. We will definitely visit again.
Went there for the first time for our 30th wedding anniversary and the entire experience was outstanding! Made our reservation through Open Table and requested a table along the windows which they were able to accommodate. The waitress was also aware of our special day and her service and demeanor could not have been better. The food was also outstanding from the bread and salad openers through the main course. We will definitely include Vivace in our regular rotation of restaurants going forward!
Every aspect of having a delicious lunch with a good friend ,who is also a first time visitor to
Vivace, was given a rave review by my friend from Scottsdale. When someone tells me they want to go to the best restaurant in the Tucson foothills; I say go to Vivace if good conversation is part of your idea of fine dining! You will love the food, the service, the ambience and furnishings that absorb sound and allow you to talk and listen to your friends without having to shout to be heard.
I love the place and the staff too.
As usual, excellent food and superior service. Jackie was our server tonight and was informative and helpful in clarifying a couple options for my wife. We asked if she'd delay putting in our order until we enjoyed our wine a bit. As usual, the restaurant was crowded. Jackie timed our salads and entrees perfectly. Just couldn't ask for a better dining experience. A true Tucson gem.
Vivace is one of the best restaurants in Tucson, AZ. If you are coming from east and craving your NYC cuisine, this place will not disappoint! Every meal, from the delicious fresh bread to dessert is perfection! Okay, my mouth is watering, I'm heading back asap! For our little Tucson, it is such a benefit to have this out of this world Italian food as seen back east. Way to go Vivace!
