Easily the best Italian restaurant in Tucson. Best food, ambiance, and service. This fine dining experience comes with a cost, but it's worth it. We enjoyed the grilled asparagus and prosciutto starter, veal and asparagus risotto entrees, a bottle of sparkling wine, and tiramisu. This...More

The food and service are excellent. Great for lunch or dinner, couples, families, guests and/or to celebrate a special occasion. Interior is a little dated but it is a little like old world Italy.

Everything, from the moment you walk in, until you leave, Vivace does fine Italian cuisine and service right! Caesar salad, with extra anchovies: Perfect! Calimari: delicately fried and delicious! Chicken Piccata: excellent! Tiramisu: decadent! Service: Very attentive!

Vivace is a top rated restaurant with top rated food, but, I especially wish to comment on their chicken entrees. The chicken is pasture raised with no hormones or antibiotics and this makes a HUGE difference in flavor and texture. This is the way chicken...More

Business casual out of respect for this fine restaurant; no jeans, appropriate length shorts. Make your dinner date special.

Yes. Every meal is prepared fresh, so if you want low salt, just ask when ordering. This is upscale Northern Italian, not the spaghetti and meatball house that is so common.
