Seafood Soup over fettucine was amazingly good! Bread dipped in pesto was a wonderfully tasty surprise; loved it. Service good but not excellent, but the food was superb and birthday-free tiramisu best ever.

Ambiance: Vivace is well appointed inside. Good furnishing and an excellent view of Tucson through the huge windows. Slightly noisy on a busy night, and tables a bit close. Staff: OK, though the table busser was very aggressive, leave your plate or dish alone for 2 minutes and she was trying to whisk it away, be alert so your nibbles... More

Wonderful food and great wine. Our server was so accommodating and they remembered to give us a beautiful view of the mountains as we had requested. I had the stuffed shrimp. They were out of this world! The owners we found out are from the Sicilian part of Italy.

Beautiful view, wonderful food! I had the mixed greens with a light vinaigrette that was one of the best salads I have had in a long time! The artichoke and goat cheese cannelloni were fabulous - light, like a cloud and delish. Everyone else's meals (group of 5) were just as good. Service was also very good and drinks were... More

It had been a while since I last ate at Vivace’s. This was my first time at their new location at Campbell and Sunrise. The city views were still spectacular but the food wasn’t. My guests and I had three different meals-all were good but not memorable. Service was fine as was the pinot noir. Dining room acoustics were a... More

If views override fine cuisine this is the place for you. And there are certainly times to make an indelible memory. However, if you've experienced gourmet Italian cuisine in Italy, New York, Chicago or LA, (and artful cuisine matters to you or your friends) you probably should stick to the rest of Tucson's rapidly growing cuisine scene. Salads are terrific.... More
