Thanks for a wonderful evening! We had friends from out of town celebrating a birthday; they were so impressed with the food and service that they will be back again.
I have dined at Vivace many times. It never fails. Yes it’s expensive, but the food and service are marvelous. Both lunch and dinner are good. If you haven’t tried the soufflé, try it!
We have been going to Vivace for over 12 years and find each visit special. Tucson’s very special dining experience.
The food was excellent! The staff was helpful and friendly.
Vivace never disappoints. We brought three new couples there the other night and they were blown away. I can always count on Vivace's to be beyond peoples expectations.
Food was good. Not the best I had on my trip to Tucson. Also not as good of a value as I found elsewhere
Wonderful Meal and lovely waitress with exceptional service
Was ok. However the person whose birthday we celebrated 44 years old fell sick after eating. Ambulance came and vitals were normal. We went to ER. EJG was normal. It seems that food was too heavy or????
Evening ended badly
Vivace is always the best food and best overall restaurant in the Tucson area.
We really enjoy the food, service and ambience at Vivace. The menu is not overwhelming and the selections are varied and well prepared. Considering the excellent quality of the food, the prices are quite reasonable.
Everything about this restaurant is perfect from the time you walk in the door from the time you walk out the door. It’s apparent how much pride the owner takes in his beautiful restaurant. No detail, small or large is overlooked. It truly feels as though you’re dining at a Michelin rated restaurant. I had a pear and walnut salad and the delicious stuffed pork chop. It was a culinary delight for sure! Our Server’s name was Kameron. He was without a doubt the finest!
Thank you for a memorable and perfect evening.
Fantastic , definitely one of the best three restaurants in Tucson
Our third visit - food has been exceptional every time. Service excellent. Favorite place to dine!
Very busy on a Sat night. Service was well paced and great. Food was outstanding
The service and food was exceptional! The owner was very engaged and attentive.
This is my favorite restaurant!! We used to live in Sierra Vista, AZ and drive here just for dinner. Now we live in Queen Creek and we still drive her for dinner. Food is always delicious and service exceptional. The spinach and cheese soufflé. It is soooo good.
Vivace is amazing!
No better place for a business lunch or elegant dinner.
Sumptuous food ,I have never had a meal that was not a culinary delight .
First time for us at this restaurant, which was recommended by friends. Food and service were great. Good wine selection. Overall pricing seems to be closer to big city rather than Tucson levels. Will definitely return in future.
Appetizer (mushrooms) were delicious. Both pasta dishes were over cooked. The bus-person hovered and tried several times to take dishes before we were done. It made us feel rushed.
We had a fine time. Stewart kept us supplied with fine quality meals. I had the excellent sliced filet mignonettes on focaccia in Marsala sauce - a true favorite. My guest had his favorite penne with sausage, taking half home for his finicky wife (who doesn’t like “restaurant food” but loves leftovers from Vivace)
Stewart was great about keeping the coffee cup full- a blessing on a late fall day as Tucson weather dips into the chilly lower seventies. To go, I took home a diner portion of manicotti— a great favorite of my wife’s. Vivace continues to provide the best overall quality of any restaurant in Tucson. Special thanks to greeter, Annie, who escorted me to the table and got me seated.
We’ll be back!
Very enjoyable evening!
We had a wonderful evening highlighted by wonderful food, great service and lovely surroundings.
Everything was excellent. This was my first time eating here and I will definitely be back
Wonderful, I had made a mistake with the date of the reservation Daniel accommodated us and it was a wonderful experience.
Had our wedding dinner at Vivace and we love going back every year for our anniversary. Amazing food and the staff are always friendly.
We brought visiting friends here for a nice dinner out the night before Thanksgiving. There was a beautiful sunset, and later the lights of the city were lovely. Our meals were top-notch, and our waitress was very helpful and attentive. This is our favorite Tucson restaurant, and we have never had anything but great experiences here.
Vivaci's never disappoints. We have been eating here for years for all our special occasions. Prices and quality can't be beat!
Perfect, exceptional, best in Tucson
Delicious food, good service beautiful setting.
We love vivaces. The waitress was okay as she spent more time with larger parties.
We are always treated very well. Seated right away at a great table. Service was impeccable, food was out of this world. My husband had pork chop, I had angel hair pasta, with the cut tomatoes and veggies. Delicious!
Very good food and service!
Jameela was great !!! Excellent service
We LOVE Danny Scordato and Vivace. We have spent many a special moment for the last 40 years with Danny, whether it's getting engaged or celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and other moments occasions. His food is excellent, the service is impeccable and the ambiance is incredible. I remember Danny, many years ago, going to Florence, Italy, to study Italian cooking. Vivace displays Danny Scordato's heart and skill and the best Italian food in town. Don't miss it.
Love Vivace!! Never disappoints.
The Osso Bucco is some of the best I’ve ever had anywhere.
The wine list is quite good and the markup on the wines isn’t as much as many same caliber restaurants.
Service is excellent: the wait staff is always knowledgeable, courteous and efficient.
We save this place as a go-to for company.
Vivace is at the pinnacle of Tucson dining. The food, service, and atmosphere are wonderful. We have dined here many times and it’s consistency is second to none.
Our recent Vivace was a delightful experience, as usual. I had requested a window table because we and our friends were celebrating a very special occasion. Not only was our request granted, we were also treated to a delicious complimentary dessert. It was a lovely evening. We'll be back again!

Waitress didn't take our appetizer/food order for 30 minutes. Didn't get the first appetizer for another 30 minutes. 2 hours and 40 minutes total and she never came back to see if I need change or to run a credit card after she dropped off the bill. For a $400 bill it was not worth it and put a damper on the birthday celebration.
We had a fine time on a very busy afternoon at Vivace. The parking lot was easily over 90%-full when we arrived, with the valet lot already in overflow. Tucson continues to beat a path to the door of this truly great restaurant. Jamala, always cheerful, got us setup and Patrick H served our meals promptly. My guest very much enjoyed the great Vivace, penne with sausage saving some to take home to his wife, a gourmet cook, who says she doesn’t like “restaurant food,” but does look forward (with relish) to “leftovers” from Daniel Scordato’s excellent kitchen.
I managed to get in on a serving of the, off-menu, sliced filet mignonette in Marsala sauce on focaccia bread. It’s clearly my favorite, when available. Alternatively, I particularly enjoy the New Zeland salmon on puff-paste over steamed spinach — truly an excellent meal! I topped off the meal by requesting the magnificent Red Chicken Breast in cream sauce with extra sauce on the side and two orders of Tirimisu for my wife, who loves “take-out” from this fine restaurant.
We look forward to returning soon. There’s no substitute for excellence! Thank you.
