We sat outside on their lovely patio. Great ambience, and the food and service were excellent, as always. They are always very accommodating, including my husband’s special request for eggplant parmesan, which he feels is the best he’s ever had.

Excellent choice for special occasions. A nice romantic atmosphere with attentive service. The food, from appetizer to meal to dessert, was excellent. Nothing was ordinary at this restaurant. This was a perfect choice for our 30th anniversary dining experience. We will be back!

Everything I have ever ordered here has been extrodinary. Great food. We had bread pudding for dessert. Calling what I ate bread pudding is an injustice. It was spectacular.

I thought given our Pandemic it was well done. The only concern was the wearing of gloves going from table to table. I think the gloves come off and just wash. Medical says with patients they change and dispose them after each patient. Not necessary.

It was really nice to be back out to eat again at our favorite Tucson restaurant! Tables were spaced a very safe distance apart, servers wore masks and gloves. We felt it was a safe experience all things considered. Food and service was as consistently good as ever!

Wonderful restaurant, delicious food, lovely ambiance and superb service. Vivaces is our favorite restaurant in the area and the food never disappoints. The owner and all employees are attentive and always helpful. A 5 star review almost seems inadequate.

Celebrating our anniversary at Vivace was a perfect choice. Sat outside on their beautiful patio. Service and food were outstanding! Special mention for their spinach and cheese soufflé appetizer. We shared it, and it was one of the best dishes we have a had in quite a little while!

It's a bit strange to begin to slowly venture out. Very surreal. Food per usual was excellent along with the service. Certainly fulfilled a needed quality lunch because everyone's sick of home cooked meals. Let's see how things roll out in the weeks ahead.

The experience was excellent! The restaurant followed CDC guidelines and my friend and I felt very comfortable. Our server, her name I believe started with a “J” , was fantastic!

We will visit again!

Vivace is al restaurant that cares about its customers. The steps they have taken to protect those that dine there (and now will do takeout) was exceptional. The food is excellent. The branzino was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Their mixed salad is tasty. The service was excellent. I look forward to using takeout and again visiting when they are able to re-open.

We go to Vivace one every year to celebrate my wife's birthday. This year was a special year since she turned 65. We were concerned if we would be able to go because of the Coronavirus and if/when the Mayor of Tucson would terminate seating-in for all restaurants. We were lucky as they stopped serving the next day! Once again the food was fantastic, service was outstanding, and the view of the sun setting in the mountains was always a special treat for us.

I thought the ambience and the food was delicious however I felt like we were rushed out of there a bit, I just finished my dinner and a person came by and picked up my food and boxed it and my wife was still eating which was inappropriate!
