Loved it. Our server was exceptional, the food was excellent and the ambiance was wonderful.
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.
They must have changed chefs
My steak was disgusting
$42 for nothing
Two birthday desserts and it was all whipped cream. Nothing like tiramisu a
Will never return even though I left a nice tip
Service was good because it wasn’t their fault
Food was outstanding. Fish of the day and shrimp stuffed crab cakes.
It was my 1 year anniversary with my girl friend and it went very well. The service was awesome and got our food right away. Would recommend to anyone.
Our server was excellent. He was attentive, knowledgeable and oh so nice. I regret not knowing his name.
The pesto served with the bread was to die for. Everything was really good and our waiter was really helpful. The view from the restaurant was beautiful.
Great wine list. Generous portions, food delicious. We had the stuffed pork chop and it was made to perfection. Loved the pear walnut salad. Waiter very attentive.
Wonderful experience all around at vivace!!! Couldn’t have been any more perfect for my wife’s bday!!
The cheese soufflé with the green salad is superb!
Always a treat! Excellent food, attentive service.
Cameron was an extremely helpful and efficient waiter which enhanced our dining experience. The food was excellent, especially the mussels.
Wonderful food. Large portions for dinner!
This visit was our first. We selected Vivace in part because it offered outside seating, which we preferred for COVID-19 safety reasons. It was a little chilly on the evening in question and we were disappointed to learn that the technology to supply heat outside was lacking. I believe Vivace's management really has an obligation to make this inadequacy more apparent in its advertising. Were we safe? No idea. Time will tell.
I have dined at Vivace five or six times since arriving in Tucson at a year ago and have never been disappointed. The ambience is lovely and the staff is superb. The food has never disappointed. I have tried three or four entrées at lunch and Two at dinner thus far. I highly recommend the seafood soup on the lunch menu and the salads are large and delicious and fresh. He would enjoy it.
With a handful of others, at the peak of dining in Tucson.
Amazing as usual! Love the service. Love the food! Keep doing what your doing... ❤️
We absolutely love coming here. The food is amazing, the staff is wonderful and remembers us, the decor and location is exquisite. We could not ask for a better place to go for dinner. If I could go everyday, I would.
Our server, Felix, was terrific. Vivace is always wonderful, the location beautiful and, in these times of Covid, I felt very safe.
This is our favorite restaurant in town. This time we were only disappointed in our waiter who was not very friendly or attentive.
We had the worst server ever. He was inattentive, and after he served the salads, we did not see him for ONE HOUR. I went searching as did my son. The hostess was very kind to me and found him. She reported he was getting ready to serve our entrees. When he finally appeared at our table, he didn’t say a word, was extremely surly, THREW plates and silverware on the table, and stalked off breaking a glass on his way. Eventually, the manager came to our table and was quite nice and accommodating. She assigned a new server, sent over complimentary desserts, and adjusted our bill. This WAS our favorite restaurant in Tucson, and we brought out of town family there after telling them how wonderful it was. EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!! Will probably not take out of town guests there again. However, kudos to the manager, Ms. Scardato, and the replacement server, Omid, for excellent treatment.
We were celebrating our 50th at Vivace’s. This one of our major celebration “go to place.” We have been going several times a year for 15 years. To be able to leave our home knowing we would have a extraordinary meal, exceptional service, a beautiful view of the city, and knowing David would have it COVID safe, means the world to us.
We were served by an excellent crew, with Vanessa’s knowledge, experience and desire to please bring a highlight.
Thank you for the wonderful seafood soup, which has been a mainstay for us since St Phillips Plaza days.
We pray your business continues through many years to come.

Food is always wonderful
Our waitress Jackie was fantastic
Vivace is our go to apecial place. It is always wonderful.
We had some friends come down for a visit and we took them to Vivace‘s for a birthday celebration. The service was fantastic as well as the food. I love this place.
As always we had an exceptional dinner and experience. I would have given 6 stars for the food. It was extremely delicious. The service also was exceptional. We had an outstanding time as we always do.
Vivace never disappoints.
Table was ready. Food was great. Highly recommend.
First time my wife and I have been at this restaurant. By far best Italian restaurant I have been to, especially in Tucson
Our meal was delicious. I love the crab stuffed chicken and the salad was good as well, big enough for two to share. Great services and tables were appropriately spaced during the pandemic.
Our first time here. Celebrating our early wedding anniversary and Valentines Day. Beautiful setting and views, enhanced by the ambiance and decor inside. Staff were excellent. Professional, personable, and gave excellent recommendations. The food and presentation were outstanding. We will definitely return. The cost of our dining experience was quite reasonable considering the elevated level of our dining choices.
Great food and great wait staff.
Always a great experience at Vivace! Food quality, service and value are outstanding. Keep up the great job.
Simply delicious From the spinach soufflé to the veal marsala to the crème brûlée. Absolutely perfect
Beautiful place and delicious food. The service is exceptional.
Love the beautiful patio at Vivace! The food is done with care, and always delicious!
My husband and I both had pasta dishes, and they were outstanding! And I would highly recommend starting with one of Vivace’s salads. They rivaled the pasta for highlight of the meal. I had the spinach salad and my husband had the pear and walnut salad. And the vivid sunset only made the evening better!
Since our first experience 10 years ago, we have enjoyed the excellent food and service at Vivace. We especially like the wine selection and the many options of wine by the glass.
