We had an outstanding supper at Vivace. The service was a little slow to start but all of the staff were friendly and efficient. The roasted pepper soup was a great start, and the entrees were great! The sauces for the pork and the veal were very tasty. We finished with he bread pudding, which was fantastic! The view of... More

Continued our tradition of celebrating my birthday at Vivace's for the second year it was amazing. The new location is fantastic! The food, service, wine and atmosphere continues to be the best! We had a wonderful evening and the surprise tiramisu for a birthday "cake" was great! This is our favorite Italian Resturant! Thank you for wonderful birthday!

Vivace was always an excellent restaurant in its previous location, but now it has moved to one of Tucson's premier locations. It offers views of most of the mountain ranges that surround Tucson. In cool weather, the extensive patios allow you to appreciate the views from the great outdoors. Otherwise, the building (the former Anthony's in the Catalinas) has been... More

Birthdays require special event restaurants and that was the case this night. It was my wife's birthday and we decided to take advantage of the low summer rates in Tucson for a getaway. We had booked a hotel for three nights which would include golf, some pool time and some sight seeing in a city we had never stayed in.... More

As a Tucsonian, this is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson (as well as many others I know!). Therefore, reservations are almost always needed. Sometimes a week in advance. SEATING: For City Light Views make sure to make a special request when making the reservation. The outdoor patio is also a wonderful area to sit and eat on a... More

Went for lunch. I had Breaded Prime Pork Tenderloin $14.95 With sauteed spinach and fontina cheese in a mushroom marsala sauce, served with mixed greens salad. Excellent. There was a slight buttery taste to the dish, which was nice. Nice and tender, nice flavor. The green salad had a nice light dressing with parmesan cheese on it. Very refreshing. The... More

We eat at Vivace for lunch and dinner pretty regularly and the food is always delicious. The service is excellent, and I love the new location. Nice work, Daniel!

My wife and I love Vivace. It is one of our two favorite restaurants in Tucson. That's why I decided to take her there for a milestone birthday dinner. However, the person taking the reservation apparently did not take notice of the fact that I said this was a birthday occasion. There was no acknowledgement of that from the hostess... More
