Great food, lovely atmosphere, really good service for a local business. You can enjoy a nice meal at a table or just drinks and snacks in the cozy bar and watch the Giants game!

After 3 days of mediocre food in Sacramento, Vivace Ristorante was a delight. The cream of artichoke soup was sublime. The spaghetti and meatballs were very good. Service was attentive without being annoying. All in all, a delightful evening spent with a good friend. Thanks

Impeccable and attentive service. The restaurant itself is very romantic and appropriately lit to set the ambiance, and without exaggerating, I can say that this was some of the best Italian food I had in a long time. Literally everything we got was fantastic, but some highlights were the caprese salad, the lamb chops, the ravioli and the cheesecake. The... More

Even though I live walking distance from Vivace I haven't been there in years, I was too tiored to cook or drive tonight so we walked down for dinner. The pastas are much better than the pizzas, but overall it's expensive for what you get. The pizza is just average, honestly I think Domino's may be tastier. Service was good... More

Our family regularly goes to Vivace for a nice meal. It is a friendly spot with great food, and a very good wine list.

Not a big place, but it reminds you of the neighborhood restaurants in Rome or Florence. Food is excellent, wines are reasonable and the service is very good.

The restaurant is a bit dark and dated, but we had an enjoyable dinner as we visited from out of town. Food overall was good but seasoning was a bit off - a bit too salty on the main courses and a bit lacking on the appetizers. Service was attentive. A nice place to eat if you are nearby -... More

Vivace is a neighborhood gem as there aren't all that many fine dining establishments in Belmont. They serve Italian food in beautiful presentations. Service is attentive but not overbearing. The wine list is decent. All of the pasta dishes and the eggplant parm are yummy. My only word of caution is if you're allergic to wheat like I am and... More

You wont be disappointed, The food is always gourmet, and the service is usually good, they get busy, and sometimes not as on top of things, but well worth the wait.
