“VIVACE-BEST VIEW IN TOWN!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Straight from the Netherland, our first stroll downtown Siena led us to this new kid on the block: just one month on business but it' s terrace having offering the best panorama in town. With a staggering view on the Tuscany hills surrounding Siena, and also on the Cathedral's Tower, the excuisite food and friendly and smooth service almost seems a minor detail. It is the total package however, that makes Vivace stand out; a range of honest italian menues, where to my opinion the antipasti are of a very high quality, slightly overshadowing the main courses. A balanced wine card and friendly prices make Vivace overall a absolute "go and see" in Siena.
So all you dutch "Toscanofielen", head for the Via Stalloreggi 64, and prepare for a dramatic sunset over the pine tree hills. don't forget your camera!

“Ducked in out of the rain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

Wandering for dinner when it started to rain so we decided on Vivace. The service was excellent and the food delicious- we were offered blankets when the waitress noticed we were wet from the rain! The carbonara was a little salty, but the hand-rolled pasta with wild boar ragu was fantastic. Started with the eggplant/fresh tomato sauce, outstanding!

“Nice easy kind of place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We were just passing by and popped in for lunch. It has a garden and terrace at the rear with wonderful views over Siena. We had a beer followed by a glass of house red and shared the selection of Tuscan meats and cheeses with bread. Service was very good and this is a friendly place. The food was excellent, very fresh and, as ever it seems in Italy, plentiful. Nice easy kind of place.

“What a disappointment”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

First, you are attracted by the very beautiful view... But next you are disappointed...
I have not tasted the wine, and the waiter mixed it with another bottle.
No bread for some table, no cover for me...
The worst was the waiting... 45 minutes for a starter.
The cheese was melting, no bread...
We have been lucky enough to get served our main courses at the same time!!
Pici was good, ravioli a bit hard!
I dont know who to blame, the waiters, the chef or the manager...
