“A truly delightful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This is a must for people who really like good food. They served large cocktails and the food was as good as you would find in Italy.
Will go back on our next visit.

“Elegant food and a view to die for.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 via mobile

I love this cafe. It's upscale, delicious, and trendy. The food is ALWAYS a hit. The chef/owner always visits our table and ensures quality. The staff is impeccable and wine list is legit.

“Outstanding Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

After check-out from Hacienda del Sol before heading out of Tucson my husband and I decided to take our friend to a last meal for her birthday celebration as she would be traveling south and us north.

She, being from Bisbee new Tucson quite well and chose Vivace because it was a favorite. Another great meal so far on our trip to Arizona. The freshest halibut in a light lemon sauce with a light sparkling wine... fabulous as was the ambiance and service.

“Vivace - beyond description!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

Our dining experience at Vivace far exceeds any Italian restaurant! We heard the food was good but that turned out to be a complete understatement! This place defies description! Service was excellent! Spinach & Cheese Soufflé IS to die for as are the Stuffed Mushrooms. We enjoyed the Pork Sorrentino, Stuffed Pork Chops and Seafood Soup. Highly recommend Vivace to all foodies - the place was full on a Monday night! Was definitely a pleasure!

“They Do It Right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

We had heard that this place was great and it is. Kind of an old time restaurant concept where the owner is onsite keeping an eye on the details. Everyone at our table raved about their choices. Try the spinach souffle for a starter, then anything on the entree menu is sure to please.
Make a reservation.
