Always great food and the best dirty martinis in town
Good was excellent. Staff amazing. No better choice in Tucson!
Our server was lovely but that food was utterly disgusting.
Always excellent food and service!
Always amazing. Favorite restaurant in Tucson. Food is great and staff is always very friendly.
Always a very fine restaurant. The knew that we were having an anniversary so the Maître D sat us at the front windows - very nice and considerate. The food again was outstanding with a great Oso Bucco. I also recommend the escargot with artichokes - a nice pair.
Vivace’s is our go to restaurant for not only special occasions but anytime. The food is excellent, the service is excellent, the prices are excellent. It has everything you could want when dining out.
A wonderful experience. We will definitely return.
Excellent! As usual, we had a delightful lunch, enjoying fine food, wonderful coffee, and great, professional service from the charming and attentive waitstaff at Vivace.
Their cuisine is legendary, location exquisite and both management and staff, truly superb. I particularly recommend the Vivace signature, Ora King Salmon, over steamed spinach, with shrimp in lemon-butter sauce ~~ a most elegant meal.
Surely, no bistro is perfect, but this consistently fine restaurant approaches great perfection, due to a plethora of dependable quality factors: smart management; loyal hard-working staff; grand location; truly fine meals; and great attention to detail. Vivace is certainly a Great Restaurant Run Right! Yeah, we’ll be back! Soon!
We ate here last year and just had to return. This time it was too cold to eat outside so we ate inside, where all the tables were filled. Still, it did not feel too crowded or noisy. As before, each of the menu items was perfection, portions were generous, and all the little touches were covered.
Our favorite restaurant for years, great food and super service. Have celebrated all our special. Events there since 2000 when we moved to AZ. His dads restaurant before that was a super place. Great restaurant family traditions.
The shrimp and mushroom salad used to include more shrimp than it currently does. It is still a good salad.
Vivace is our go to restaurant when we have out of town visitors and we go with family and friends when we are celebrating special occasions.
Best Italian Restaurant in Tucson, AZ!
Good menu selection. Wonderful preparation and service
Vivace is our favorite upscale restaurant in Tucson, always a must for special occasions.
Overall, awesome place. Great food, drinks, service, atmosphere.
31st anniversary. First time customers.
Tasty salad definitely enough to share for 2. The best prepared and presented entrees (bass special and salmon) we have eaten in Tucson.
Great relaxed meal in an hour and half. Professional and timely service. Closely monitored table responding immediately to requests.
Warm welcome as soon as we walked into restaurant. Great service and food. Waiter was very helpful and accommodating. Would definitely go back when in area.
Excellent service, very nice staff, very pleasant experience.
My friends food was excellent however my meal was way too salty.
Vivace was wonderful, as always. It is our go-to place for special occasion dinners.
Everything was delicious per usual! Fish of the day was PERFECT. The mussels are to die for. Don't forget molten lava cake! Jackie was AMAZING!
The food was amazing and our waitress Alex was awesome. She was personable and knew what was the best to eat. My dinner was outstanding and so was my husbands. This was our 40th anniversary and Vivance made it very special.
Very nice, comfortable restaurant with an excellent selection of seafood. I wasn't expecting that in the Sonoran Desert, but it was indeed impressive. The seafood soup is a five star dish! The wait staff was very professional without being stuffy and also quite accommodating. Full bar and what appeared to be a nice wine selection, although I didn't explore them.
Outdoor dining on the patio is quite nice and the views from one side of the dining room are either of the patio or, from the other side, it is a very nice view that includes the mountains and downtown.
I'll definitely return.
We had a delightful lunch at Vivace with ever sweet and cheerful, Bella taking great care of us. We each enjoyed our seafood meals, my guest, truly savoring his portion of “Fish Soup,” as well as taking home a substantial amount of it to share with his wife. I particularly liked the grilled Ora King Salmon over steamed spinach with a wonderful shrimp garnish in lemon butter sauce. The cuisine at Vivace is always excellent, but it’s the people who make the difference between ordinary and superb service. Bella is simply charming, keeping the fine coffee flowing, while maintaining a friendly banter with other waitstaff as well as us. She easily arranged for takeout of a Four Cheese Manicotti dinner for my wife and the Vivace, signature Veal Marsala with vegetable pasta for me ~~ each marvelous and well received. We’ll be back soon! Thank you!
The food is always fabulous! I have never had a bad meal!
The food is fantastic and the service is impeccable.
Great food and great service!
Great service, food, and most of all great ambiance. The owner, Dan. Makes sure he says hi to all the customers. Couldn’t be happier to spend my money there.
We've lived in Tucson for nearly 3 years and had never been there. We also both worked in the restaurant industry for many years (over 30 total between us). Both of us are always nice to employees, as we've been there, but also very picky and know quality in all aspects of restaurant operations.
With that said, they hit the marks on everything -- drinks, service, food, ambience. Everything was stellar. Felix was not pretentious (something we both can't stand) and very busy but professional, attentive and friendly.
My wife has the Tenderloin with the Marsala sauce, spinach and polenta. It's easy to screw up a lot on that dish. All elements were fantastic. I'm unfortunately gluten free (not by choice) and had the Eggplant Lasagna. Wonderful. And the fresh vegetables were prepared so well.
Look, it's not a cheap place, but the value is great. If I'm going to pay for an upscale meal, I want it to be special. Everything about this meal was certainly that.
We both looked at each other and said, "we've found our new favorite place for special occasions!".
Always a special treat to dine @ Vivace's. And, as usual, our server was beyond outstanding!
My first time dining at Vivace was a pleasant experience overall.
Our waiter was friendly and didn’t rush us. We had the asparagus soup to start out followed by the chicken meatballs and angel hair pasta, as well as the seafood soup. My dining partner did not like the seafood soup and asked to return it and get the manicotti instead which she loved. We paid for all three entrees but were happy with our meals in the end. I’d return to Vivace if I ever have the chance.
My favorite restaurant in Tucson. Been dining at Vivace for 28 years. It never disappoints.
The Italian sausage in the penne pasta is excellent and the portion is large. A favorite! For a non pasta dish, try the eggplant lasagna smothered in a wonderful tomato sauce with melted chesse. Delicious! The bread and pesto is so good. One of our favorite restaurants.
Outstanding, as usual. Everything was wonderful. Will be back as soon as possible.
Good food and wine. Our waitress was fantastic even after she had a party of 16-20 people at her tables!! Love this place.
Service was excellent! Food was delish and some of the best pesto sauce I have ever had. The chicken meatballs are amazing!
We had a great dinner at Vivace. What makes the place isn’t just the view it’s the service! Do request a table with a view. We were first given a table behind a column next to the kitchen doors but they were cable to move us to a better spot without hesitation.
