“Good Italian food, be prepared to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Plenty of food, nice and tasty. Friendly service, amazing deserts. Sort of hard to find parking and no valet (at least that I could find), but the walk back to the car after a big meal, does feel good!

“Tucson's favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Everyone loves Vivace; the favorite restaurant of Tucson residents and snowbirds. Consistent northern italian cuisine and gracious service make reservations a must at this sold out spot.

We went to Vivace for our 30th anniversary celebration, the food was great, the service outstanding, and the molten lava chocolate dessert was amazing!

“Excellent Itatian meal in Tucson”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Thursday, January 24

A friend and I arrived at 6:30 pm and we were immediately seated. The staff was pleasant and checked on us often. The food was great, I had ceaser salad followed by the
Chicken and Asparagus Risotto which is asparagus and Parmigiano cheese risotto, topped with grilled chicken and touch of demi-glaze. The dinner tasted wonderful and the portion size was excellent. For dessert I had the white-chocolate gelato which was outstanding.

The restaurant is tastefully decorated in an Italian theme. The restaurant was busy so it looks like a lot of locals must eat there. That is good because if the food wasn't good, the locals would not be there.

The food and service were outstanding and rate a "5".

Would I eat here again? An overwhelming YES.
