You get what you pay for. That's what I thought at the end of this meal. We went here for a celebration dinner, and it was certainly more than I would pay for a regular night out, but the food and service was amazing. I couldn't decide between two dishes, and the waiter asked if I could have a small... More

I have dined at Vivace three times now, twice for dinner and once for brunch. The decor is cozy and relaxing. My first dinner here was a late night and the restaurant was quiet and the food was good. I returned another time for a brunch and the same dish was very off. I know some restaurants brunches do not... More

Lunch was very nice, with a varied menu. Not a very large menu, but quite a nice variety with appetizers, salads, soups, pizza, pasta, panani and main courses - whoops, I mean Antipasti, Insalate, Zuppa, Pizza, Panini, Primi e Secondi. Also Contorni. So one gets an Italian flavor from the categories, even though the dishes we had were more novel... More

Stopped here for a Sat. afternoon lunch. Not disappointed. Found the menu a bit limited but that should not stop anyone from going here. The food was top notch and the bar drinks were outstanding. Parking is a hastle because it competes with a lot of small specialty shops. The best feature of the lunch was the staff, totally friendly... More

I sometimes forgot about just how good Vivace is, so I neglect to go there. That said, each time I do seems to be even better than the last. I took my visiting son and his girlfriend there for dinner last week and the service was exemplary and the food was delicious, from the appetizers to dessert. Our server Michael,... More

I first learned of Vivace when a friend said "let's meet here for lunch" as its North Hills location is convenient. WOW! We just loved the food and have been back several times. I am writing based solely on the lunch menu. The dinner looks pricey and evenings look crowded, so lunch/early afternoon visits have always been my choice. The... More

A little expensive, but excellent food and the fact that you have a choice to sit inside or out is a real plus... Food is excellent, but priced a little high for dinner.. Try lunch on the veranda...

This was a very good restaurant experience for myself and my friends. We enjoyed the ambiance and the staff were exceptional. The food was fabulous from the salads to the desserts. It has a really nice patio to sit and rest while the heat of the day slowly cools. The management also owns french bistro around the corner. Also a... More

Our service was awesome! We gad the Yellow Fin Tuna as our appetizer and it was out of this world, as well as the grilled salmon chop and the veal saltimbocca.

This is my go-to restaurant for almost any occasion. The food and service easily compete with the best italian restaurants in New York and Boston. They even keep up in the wine department which is rare in this area.
