“Great Pasta”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

My wife and I dined here for our anniversary. The food was well seasoned and prepared in a timely manner. We chose this restaurant as it was highly ranked on Trip Advisor and it lived up to its reviews. Try the chocolate desert for two, it is worth the 15 minute wait!

“One of Tucson's Best”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is one restaurant which always seems to please, be it their menu fare, the attentive service and the romantic environment. The dinning experience from the time you walk in the door right through dessert more than meets expectations. For those of us living here, this is not a "one and done" occasion. Reservation are recommended.

“Always a special experience at Vivace!”

Just celebrated my Birthday at my favorite restaurant in Tucson: Vivace! It never disappoints with quality food, professional wait-staff, and extra attention from Danny Scordato, the owner. He really understand what it takes to make a restaurant special.

“Nicely done!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013 via mobile

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.

“These guys know how to cook!”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

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.
