Having said that, there is no bias in what follows; The staff were courteous and efficient and the food that kept on coming all night for our event was of the highest caliber. Afterwards 12 of us sat down to dinner, I... More

My son and his wife were anxious to try this restaurant so when I visited we all went. The highlight was the appetizer, Arancini (pistachio stuffed rice balls) - excellent! It sorta went downhill from there. Son got the Pansotti al Fiorentine and it was so-so, d-i-l got gnochhi and it was very salty and not very good. I tried... More

When seeking out the real Italian experience - Vivace is our first choice - Not just because it is close by - but also because the selection and quality of the food is very very good. Whether a nice romantic dinner or a time with family and friends - -Vivace never disappoints

Wife and I went for lunch. We were very impressed. Décor and setting are marvelous. Staff is very gracious and attentive. The food was delicious and well prepared and portions generous. This is our new "go to" Italian restaurant.

My husband and I have been coming for almost 20 years. The food and service are excellent. Even after a lengthy break in our visits, Mike still remembered my husbands name and greeted us like we are part of his family. This restaurant makes you feel "at home". Their Pizza is amazing, if you like the "real" Italian Pizza, which... More

I have been eating at Vivace for more than 10 years and it has become our favorite restaurant for two reasons. First of all the food is just delicious and the skirt steak is "world class", and secondly the staff are consistently friendly, efficient and genuinely seem to love hosting us at their restaurant.
