“Very good”
Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

After 3 days of mediocre food in Sacramento, Vivace Ristorante was a delight. The cream of artichoke soup was sublime. The spaghetti and meatballs were very good. Service was attentive without being annoying. All in all, a delightful evening spent with a good friend. Thanks

“My new favorite Italian restaurant.”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Impeccable and attentive service. The restaurant itself is very romantic and appropriately lit to set the ambiance, and without exaggerating, I can say that this was some of the best Italian food I had in a long time. Literally everything we got was fantastic, but some highlights were the caprese salad, the lamb chops, the ravioli and the cheesecake. The lamb chops were perfectly cooked and the seasoning was just divine. So simple, so delicious.

Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

“So so only.....”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Even though I live walking distance from Vivace I haven't been there in years, I was too tiored to cook or drive tonight so we walked down for dinner. The pastas are much better than the pizzas, but overall it's expensive for what you get. The pizza is just average, honestly I think Domino's may be tastier. Service was good but the food just isn't compelling.

Our family regularly goes to Vivace for a nice meal. It is a friendly spot with great food, and a very good wine list.

“Great Italian choices”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Not a big place, but it reminds you of the neighborhood restaurants in Rome or Florence. Food is excellent, wines are reasonable and the service is very good.
