Great italian

Have dined at Vivaci's many times at St Phillip's Plaza, always a great dining experience. Recently dined with friends at their new location. Food as good as ever but adding the view made the evening "wonderful". Not to be.missed dining experience.

The Vivace kitchen prepares good to very good Italian food and fresh pasta. The quality of service is variable - our server has worked at Vivace for years and he had no pride and little professionalism in his service.

We frequent Vivace's as often as we can and every visit keeps us coming back for more. Food is always delicious and service is always very friendly and professional. The osso buco is my personal favorite......simply melts in your mouth!

I took my son out to celebrate his new job. We both ordered the fish and both had ptomaine poisoning. I even called the health department, because we were so sick. I'll never go back, and it used to be my favorite restaurant.
