From the greeting at the door to the professionalism of the waiter and the ambiance of the restaurant, you feel comfortable and welcome. The menu is varied and the restaurant is accommodating to adjusting for allergies. Oh, the bread and pesto! This sets the tone for the meal. The food was prepared well and looked inviting on the plate. This restaurant is a winner.

Went to this restaurant for a special occasion. Read the trip advisor reviews beforehand and couldn't understand why I hadn't heard about it. We shared mozzarella over eggplant for starter then had the Ossa Buca and Veal Piccata for mains. By 8 pm it was almost full and I believe the family feel is a factor. A great experience and worth every cent.

We have eaten here for many years--it's enjoyable but it's time for an update. Their meatballs are chicken and frankly weird--as Italians we really like the real thing! Although it's supposedly Italian they are short on classics--the stress is more on seafood. Still very enjoyable and very nice wine list.

He had an excellent experience at Vivace. Service was top notch and food was very good. This one will make it to the top of our list to return to next year.

Love this restaurant. We go here to celebrate birthdays, anniversary, etc. Staff is great, food is superb, and lots of it. Everything we have tried has tasted delicious.
There is no music, which I like; you can hold a conversation at normal voice levels. Would also be good for a business lunch. The creme brulee dessert is to die for (also, you get a huge serving of it). Finding a parking place at lunch takes a few minutes but there are spaces if you are patient. Making a reservation is a must, if you want a decent table; but you can make it online, very easy. We take all our out of town friends here.
