My favorite restaurant in Tucson. Danny Scordato is a sticker for quality and consistency. This restaurant in the Catalina Foothills never misses. The food i excellent and the servers are true professionals. Many of them have been there for 10 years or more. Lunch is great and very reasonably priced. The salads are all excellent and weather permitting, it is lovely to dine on the patio. Dinner (reservations a must) is great for a romantic evening, special occasion or just because...

We've wanted to try Vivace since we moved to Tucson and finally got the opportunity. I must say we were very impressed with the great service and wonderful northern Italian food. I had goat cheese & artichoke stuffed cannoli and my hustband had salmon on fettuccini....both were wonderful. The cream of asparagus soup of the day was great, too. I would highly recommend this restaurant. It is going to become our "go to" place for any special meals..

We love Vivace! The food is always delicious. The setting is wonderful, whether dining indoors or out on the patio. The staff always seems very accomodating without being at your tabel "too" often. The only way that we can see anyone being disappointed by Vivace...is if they didn't call enough in advance to assure themselves a reservation.

Stayed at Windmill Suites and only 3 places to eat within walking distance in a shopping area adjacent to the hotel. Ate twice at Vivace--plenty of food, wife and I split entrees. Pork one night and veal picatta the other. Kitchen split the plates. Ate outdoors--very pleasant. Total price for 2 (sharing 1 entree) before tip with 2 drinks and a salad about $50.

Vivace has been first on my favorite Tucson restaurants lists for years. The food is delicious and high quality, the service is wonderful, and the atmosphere is warm, close as in European restaurants, but very inviting. The food is Northern Italian Cuisine and always fresh. The wine list is excellent, and if you need a recommendation, Daniel Scordato, the owner, will speak to you himself. Owned by one of Tucson's long-standing best restauranteur families. Located in beautiful St. Phillip's Plaza.
