Great brunch

Service was efficient and fast. I had the 4 cheese ravioli and sangria. The pasta was delicious. We had calamari which was a bit bland but the caprese salad was good. Entire experience was good. I recommend this restaurant and will return.

Nice variety of items on the menu - including gluten free options. Restaurant is a little small for larger parties (we had 16) - so we ended up at 2 tables.

Pros: Well prepared food, wine and beer selection, outdoor seating, attentive service Cons: noisy, open kitchen adds to noise and heat in dining area Tip: The brussels sprouts are excellent, weather permitting sit outdoors for a quieter setting Six of us dined at the restaurant for dinner. We had: brussels sprouts (5 stars out of 5), bruschetta (4 stars), carpaccio... More

I've lived in Raleigh for 8 years and this is still my favorite restaurant. Love the atmosphere and always receive excellent service. The food is always delicious! From the pizza to salads to my favorite- the Risotto. And great wine list!!

Nice atmosphere and fine service. The antipasto were fine but ordinary except for a small strawberry chilly dip. The pizzas were lots of melted cheese on fried dow. The spaghetti were really heavy

This restaurant consistently delivers. We never had a bad meal or a disappointment over the five years we were going there. Food is prepared in your view in an open kitchen, servers are adept, and the wine list is outstanding. The outside seating is a very nice addition.

I visited here over a year ago and was interested to return. This time I sat inside and really enjoyed the décor -- very different than sitting on their patio during a prior visit. I had the gnocchi and it was pretty good -- one of the more difficult dishes to get right in my opinion. They had a excellent... More

Very good service. Good portions. the wine cellar had an excellent selection. I found the veal was a little well done. Overall good experience as first time diners. I felt the beer selection was not up to expectation, the beer I requested as sold out and total wines are a few doors away. if its on the menu than the... More

The servers at Vivace are extremely adept. They know when to stay away and when to assist. From providing wine recommendations to special request they are really excellent. The mussels are always 100% the best!

While it's difficult to decide between 'trendy' and delicious, it is wonderful to find a restaurant that is both. We had a private party here of about 20 people. All enjoyed whatever they ordered. We started off with a variety of appetizers from meatballs to broiled Brussels sprouts. I am not a Brussels sprouts fan but these were out of... More
